Figure Skater Bradie Tennell Has Super Long Hair & Only Cuts It Once In a While For This Inspiring Reason

There’s a reason that Bradie Tennell has super long hair and it’s truly inspiring.

The 20-year-old Olympic figure skater revealed that she has long hair so she can cut and donate it!

“It’s down to my butt,” Bradie shares about her blonde locks, and didn’t get her first haircut until she was 13. “It was down to about my calves.”

Once Bradie cuts it, she donates it to an organization that makes wigs for people who lost their hair to illness: “Then I grow it back out and I donate it again.”

“The first time I cut it, I cut off 21 inches,” she remembers. “Then I waited about a year to cut it again and I cut off about 16 inches.”

Be sure to watch Bradie perform tonight in the ladie’s free skate at the 2018 PyeongChang Winter Olympics @ 8PM ET/PT on NBC.

Mirai Nagasu isn’t only inspiring the entire USA right now at the 2018 Pyeongchang Winter Olympics — she’s also inspiring her teammates Karen Chen and Bradie Tennell.

Just before the short program competition, Mirai, Karen and Bradie all sat down for a press conference where the younger two opened up about how Mirai has inspired them on, and off the ice — especially with that triple axel.

“When she nailed the triple axel, I jumped up screaming,” Bradie remembered, speaking of the team event where Team USA earned the bronze medal. “It was just incredible.”

Karen added, “She will inspire so many younger skaters that the impossible is possible. I think that I see a future [where] all of us could potentially have a triple axel as long as we have the grit like Mirai.”

Mirai joked moments later, “I’m available for lessons.”

But the triple axel isn’t just what Karen and Bradie like about Mirai.

“Just kind of watching how [Mirai] interacts with people and the way she handles herself,” Bradie adds. “I must confess to trying to be a little bit like her.”

The ladies’ free skate will take place Thursday, February 22nd on NBC.

Olympic Figure Skater Bradie Tennell Opens Up About Her 'Supernatural' Obsession

Olympic Figure Skater Bradie Tennell Opens Up About Her 'Supernatural' Obsession

Bradie Tennell is a huge fan of Supernatural and actually screamed after seeing the stars of the CW series give her a shoutout after making the Olympic team.

The 20-year-old figure skater (already a bronze medalist with the team event) is gearing up to compete in the Ladies’ Figure Skating events next week, but took some time out to talk about her obsession with the show.

She admits that she only started really watching in season 9: “I’ve been a fan of the show for much longer than that, but was too scared to watch it when I was younger.”

“I fell in love with Supernatural because of the characters,” she tells Changing Channels. “I just love how the brothers would do literally anything to keep the other safe, and how that is both a positive and a negative in the storyline.”

Bradie adds, “I also have two brothers myself, so I think Sam and Dean remind me of them a bit. Plus, they’re just so funny.”

She also opened up about getting that supporting tweet from the cast.

“I had just finished working out and went to check my phone and it was blowing up because so many of my friends were sending the picture to me,” Bradie recalls. “I thought it was so cool that they took time out of their day to post that for me. It literally made my week.”
