From memorable experiences such as walking the red carpet at the Teen Choice Awards to appearing on hit TV shows like The Vampire Diaries, Olympic gold medalist Gabby Douglas has been working tirelessly since she stole the hearts of America at the 2012 Summer Olympics.

Leaving no stone unturned, the Olympic sensation will next appear as a guest judge on tonight's finale of So You Think You Can Dance.

"It's funny because I'm always out on the competition floor competing and people [are] judging me so I get to be in a different seat this time," she says of the judging gig.

In addition to being a two-time Olympic gold medalist, the 17 year-old is also a New York Times Bestseller and just released her second book, Raising the Bar, the follow-up to her memoir Grace, Gold & Glory: My Leap of Faith.

And while she has her sights on the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, Gabby says she is looking forward to a possible career in hosting, producing or acting post-gymnastics.

Watch our full interview above for the speed round where I find out Gabby's go-to dance move and whether she is a Backstreet Boys or *NSYNC fan! 

Be sure to catch Gabby on So You Think You Can Dance tonight at 8/7c on FOX.
