Gabby Douglas: 25 Things You Don’t Know About Me (I'd Be a Comedian If I Weren't a Gymnast)

Gabby Douglas: 25 Things You Don’t Know About Me (I'd Be a Comedian If I Weren't a Gymnast)


Gabby Douglas made her second Olympic appearance on Sunday, August 8, in Rio de Janeiro, where she and her fellow U.S. gymnasts qualified for the team all-around final. The 2012 gold medalist unfortunately didn’t qualify for the individual all-around competition, but based on what the Douglas Family Gold star told Us Weekly about her back-up career, she’ll be on hand to make Team USA qualifiers Simone Biles and Aly Raisman laugh all the way to the top. 

Prior to Douglas’ showing in Rio, she shared fun facts about herself with Us Weekly in this 25 Things You Don’t Know About Me video.

“I’d definitely be a comedian,” the 20-year-old athlete tells Us (while giggling!) of what she’d be doing if she weren’t an Olympic gymnast.

The Gabbymoji creator, who chatted with Us in the living room of her family’s Tarzana, California, home also introduced her pets to the world.

“I have two dogs. One is a Morkie; he is a mix with a Maltese and a Yorkie,” says the two-time gold medalist while petting her pups. “And then I have a black Lab mixed with a Rottweiler, and then I have a tabby cat. Their names are Toby, Zoway and Chandler.”

Other reveals from the Raising the Bar author include her favorite part of gymnastics — “getting dressed up and just, like, competing out on the floor and just being in character” — as well as what she dislikes most.
