Fresh off the Vancouver slopes, snowboarder Shaun White hit the media circuit, commenting on everything from his own dating status to Tiger Woods.

White, who took home a gold medal in the men's halfpipe, stopped by the "Oprah Winfrey Show" on Friday to chat about his famous Double McTwist, super secret training halfpipe in Colorado and even girls. He confessed that he is single and hinted that the grueling schedule of a world-class athlete can cramp a guy's style in the dating department.

He's known as the "Flying Tomato" and now we know how he tames those wild red locks. White told People his hair care regimen consists of "hotel shampoo and conditioner" and he only washes it every other day.

And when Eonline asked him his thoughts on Tiger Woods' apology. White didn't hold back, "I'm still a big fan of him. Pretty soon we will all realize that he's still a great guy deep down and he just made some bad calls."
