On Monday night, Jay Leno’s couch welcomed a pair of American icons: First Lady Michelle Obama and Flying Squirrel Gabby Douglas, a certified Olympic stud in an appropriately gold skirt. One has dedicated the past three and a half years to getting the nation’s kids moving; the other proves what’s possible for someone who embraces an active lifestyle. But even superheroes have their weaknesses. Before detailing her strict training diet (
acorns protein, protein, and more protein), Douglas admitted to The Chin that she did “splurge” on a single Egg McMuffin once the competition in London was over. That’s when Obama leaned over and said, “You’re setting me back, Gabby.”
See the cholesterol-filled exchange below — and stick around to learn what Kate Middleton admires about Team USA, how a homesick Douglas got through her lowest moment, and whether the gymnast intends to compete in the 2016 Rio Games. (Joked Leno: “Only four years until your next Egg McMuffin!”)
