Ethan Renoe: ‘Shirtless Wonder’ From Chicago Gets 2.4 Million Video Views In 23 Hours – Talks Porn And Jesus [Video]

There’s a man known as the “Shirtless Wonder” who is getting pretty popular online after being interviewed while on a break from jogging in the rain in Chicago. The “Shirtless Wonder” is actually Ethan Renoe, a man going viral on the Facebook page of WGN TV after a video of Ethan was uploaded to the website. As seen in a video of the “Shirtless Wonder,” Ethan was stopped by a WGN reporter named Tahman Bradley after Renoe was spotted running without a shirt in the rain.

Ethan also shows his creativity and love for Jesus in YouTube videos called “The Mountain” on the Ethan Renoe YouTube channel. On his website, Renoe confesses his addiction to porn and how it relates to his beliefs and conflicts with his Christianity. Blog posts like “Porn: Why I’m the D-Bag in the Gym” aren’t the typical ones readers see writers of faith publishing, but they are adding to Ethan’s charm.

Since the report covered the unseasonably warm weather in Chicago, it’s apropos that Renoe would get caught running in the rain in Chicago in December with no shirt and only shorts on. Ethan described how wearing a shirt would’ve soaked his shirt in the rain.

“So this just happened. Enjoying the weather, are you, ‘Ethan’? Reporter Tahman Bradley caught up with Ethan Renoe Sunday night as he was running, shirtless, along Lake Michigan in the warm and rainy weather.”

With Facebook reporting 2,396,607 views on the video of Ethan in the 23 hours since it was uploaded to Facebook, apparently, Renoe’s quips about being single and his love for running in the rain has struck a big chord with people online. Folks are commenting on how Renoe turned the short interview into his own personal dating ad.

“I love running in the rain and I’m also single.”

Follow-up reports like “Ethan the Shirtless Wonder is looking for love” have followed on Facebook, along with plenty of requests for more information about Renoe. As a result, WGN listed ways for their viewers to contact the “Shirtless Wonder” after they tracked Ethan down.

“ETHAN THE SHIRTLESS WONDER: The shirtless jogger from last night’s viral video just joined WGN Morning News. When asked if he’s looking for love, he said, ‘I am.’ Here’s how you can contact him!”

On Twitter, Renoe has updated his followers as to how his sudden shirtless fame is getting him plenty of interviews across the nation, such as an interview on Daybreak Denver on Tuesday, December 15.

Those who have seen Ethan’s viral video have responded in droves with funny quips about Renoe, such as jokes about moving to Chicago. Others write that they’ve suddenly developed a love for running in the rain after seeing Ethan.

On Twitter, folks are writing about falling in love with Ethan the Shirtless Wonder after watching his viral “running in the rain” interview. People are also tweeting about their fascination with Renoe’s faith, with Ethan being one of those effective believers who writes honestly about struggles with porn addiction and other vices that certain Christians won’t admit to experiencing.

Ethan is getting so much attention that certain people are wondering aloud on Twitter whether the whole Renoe situation is real. Others have a plethora of questions for the “Shirtless Wonder” who let the world know he was single, and considering the response, Renoe might not be single for long.

Renoe writes about his love of exercise and the fact that Ethan became a certified personal trainer by the National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM) in 2014.

According to Heavy, Ethan is also a published author, having written a book titled Leaving Winter — quite appropriate for the shirtless wonder.
