@Gil - Nothing super-solid on Jeremy Lin yet. Let me know if you come across anything. The best I've found so far is this badly-translated quote:

The god of the NBA, 'Jeremy Lin refused to premarital sex, and blew eight These conditions lead actress offer love. In addition, Lynn Xiong and Aaron Kwok feelings underway changes, Lynn received shortly after the male complement to send Valentine's Day gift public suddenly announced that a 'single', it seems to imply to break up, but soon after that, think back, it seems that begged composite

I didn't just mistype that. I copy-pasted. It was that bad to begin with. Here's the source: http://www.agile-news.com/news-671707-Jeremy-Lin-refused-to-premarital-sex-wife-requirements-to-be-a-virgin-Figure.html

That's almost enough to use, but not quite. I can't easily post that barely-English quote on the main site as proof. If you can find me a better quote than that, Gil (or anybody), then I've got the rest of the Jeremy Lin article (quotes about faith, biography, etc) ready to go!

Hey, Mike!

One of my favourite inspirational speakers, Nick Vujicic. So, this is a compilation of a few of his talks. WTM bit's at 32:30 or so (EDIT: and at 34:00), but you'll want to watch the whole of the first talk, or you won't get how amazing this guy is!

Love this guy so much!

And here he is in an award-winning short film!

He got married this year! Yay!

So, what do you think? I think he's worthy of being called a celebrity...

@Jegsy & Naturally - Great finds! I love Nick Vujicic. That guy is so inspirational. I had no clue he was waiting.

Yay Naturally! We may end up with a great collection of Aussie celebs. Keep them coming!

I'll get right on these. We have 3-4 celebs in the que before these guys, so it might be a few weeks, but I'll get them up. Thanks so much for posting them!

Okay, she's not as famous/popular as some of the other athletes coming up but check out Lolo Jones. She's an Olympic athlete and I LOVE the fact that she's 29 (30 this year) and still waiting! Gives me hope which is all I can ask for.

Check out some pics and her video/interview. It's relatively recent so all the major magazines are talking about it:

Check out People Magazine's take on it. They were so positive in their article! The comments are mostly pretty positive too! So refreshing! Okay, mini-rant over

This one made with Shane.

Her videos crack me up so much ^_^

I once saw Patricia Heaton (Everybody Loves Raymond/The Middle) on Craig Ferguson talking about how she waited until marriage. I did some searching to try and find it, but I can't, so I don't really know how helpful that is. Still, I thought it was really neat at the time.

I know that I have read an article about Lenny Kravitz saying that he will be celibate until he gets married. And I once saw an interview on tv where Lady Gaga also said that she was celibate. I will try to find some articles to back these up.

EDIT:

Whoopsie. According to this article, Kravitz may have changed his mind about celibacy:

I guess he doesn´t count as a celebrity but there were already other "popular youtubers" suggested. So here is another one. Swoozie (or Adande which is his real name) :)
I think he has a video where he actually talks about his decision to wait, but I couldn´t find it yet.

Great Article on the front page of Yahoo.com about how Kansas state quarterback sensation, waited... even for a first kiss!!

Collin Klein’s faith led him to his wife and his first kiss, so why not a Heisman and a national championship?
