This summer, we all caught Olympic Fever — and even vampires aren’t immune to that! After effervescent gold medal gymnast Gabby Douglas revealed that The CW’s “Vampire Diaries” is her favorite TV show, she got to live every fan’s dream when members of the “TVD” cast made her a good luck video.
Douglas and everyone’s favorite doppelganger, Nina Dobrev, quickly struck up a friendship via Twitter direct message — and now they’ll finally get to meet when Douglas visits the set of the show this Wednesday.
@gabrielledoug is coming to The Vampire Diaries set tomorrow! Cant wait to meet and work with you girl! Dont forget to bring your bling! 😛

Dobrev’s tweet mentions working with Douglas, so it looks like the gymnast got her wish — back in August, Douglas tweeted executive producer Julie Plec with a sly request for a guest appearance, and Plec promised to do her best. Rumor has it, she delivered! Perhaps Douglas will serve not only as Extra’s star correspondent on set, but will film a small role as well.
We did have some ideas for an Olympics-themed episode… somehow, we suspect they went in a different direction.
