Meet Rising Out Influencer Connor Gowland

Shawn Laib READ TIME: 4 MIN.

If you want to get a daily dose of adorable blonde-haired-handsomeness, Taylor Swift-stanning, and cute puppy-owner interactions, look no further than the social media accounts of Connor Gowland.

This gay influencer first took off after he was on "The Late Late Show With James Corden" as a contestant on the host's "Late Late Live Tinder" segment. Since then he has continued to share shirtless vacation selfies, dog adoption stories, and lip sync videos with his growing base of fans. Gowland has 127,000 IG followers as of this writing. Here is a collection of his best moments online!

This was the original video of Gowland winning a date with out soccer star Collin Martin in 2019 on James Corden's late night talk show. This live version of Tinder is played out just like on the app, with the subject of the skit swiping figuratively on a variety of contestants until they pick from the final three.

Despite great chemistry between the two men, Gowland later reported on his YouTube channel that it never developed into a relationship. Still, a very fun segment and kudos to James Corden for being diverse in his choice of contestants on his show and not just sticking to straight pairings for this segment.

Gowland is one of the most active vacationers on Instagram, seemingly always showing off a new locale he's visiting no matter what time of the year it is. He brags about going to Miami in the middle of the winter here to escape from a rare drought in Los Angeles. His incredible physique is front and center in the picture, with Gowland wearing nothing but a skimpy blue pair of swim trunks that shows off his body and all of his hard work in the gym.
