Gabby guest-starred as a young Miss Mystic Falls pageant contestant in the Season 4 episode, “My Brother’s Keeper.” Alas, the show did not tell fans whether Douglas won or if she even survived the bloodthirsty show.
2. The Screen Actors’ Guild Awards
She isn’t an actress, but even actors like to hang out with cute and highly successful athletes.
3. Nickelodeon Kid’s Choice Awards
The popular gymnast was a presenter at the crazy, kid-friendly award show in March 2013. In a sad twist, she appeared on stage with “Glee” actor Cory Monteith, only a couple of months before his unexpected death.
4. Time/CNN/People Pre-Dinner
At the star-studded event in April, TV stars — like Amy Poehler — lined up to get a photo with the gymnast.
5. BET Awards
The event honoring African Americans in show business brought in Douglas to add to the spectacle. She did a good job with that.
6. ESPY Awards
An event celebrating the best of TV sports could hardly ignore Douglas. She presented with Yasiel Puig at the show.
7. Teen Choice Awards
Douglas was a winner at the 2013 Teen Choice Awards — she got the surfboard recognizing her as the Choice Female Athlete.
Gymnasts and dancers have a lot in common, so it’s no shock that “SYTYCD” invited Douglas to guest-judge the Top 4 competition.
In an episode focusing on young gymnasts, Douglas was one of Bethenny Frankel‘s guests.
10. ‘The Gabby Douglas Story’
Even Lifetime wanted in on the Douglas action: An original movie based on the gymnast’s life, “The Gabby Douglas Story,” is expected in 2014.
Between sports and television, the upcoming year looks to be a good one for Gabby Douglas.
