Gabby Douglas Reveals Post-Victory McDonald's Meal as Jay Leno Smiles, Michelle Obama Rolls Eyes

by at . Comments

On the Tonight Show Monday night, Olympic champion Gabby Douglas revealed how she celebrated her gold medal-winning gymnastics performance.

"I splurged on an Egg McMuffin at McDonald's!" the 16-year-old said ... an answer that was music to the ears of famous fast food lover Jay Leno.

"Egg McMuffin?" the intrigued host said as the program's other guest, fitness and nutrition fanatic Michelle Obama, could only shake her head.

"Gabby, don't encourage him," she joked. "I'm sure it was a whole wheat McMuffin."

Added the First Lady, amid laughter, "You're setting me back, Gabby!"

As First Lady, Obama has advocated for encouraging healthy eating; on her last trip to the Tonight Show, Michelle even got Jay to eat vegetables.

Later during the trio's chat, Leno questioned the gold medalist about her post-Olympics life, and whether or not it's met her expectations so far.

Watch the second half of her interview after the jump ...

"Obviously you have been training your whole life and you dream about winning. How does the dream match the reality?" Leno asked Douglas.

"It's very different and when I [say] different it's in a better way," she said. "I never thought I would be doing the show with the First Lady, or even you Jay!"

Teased Michelle Obama, "Even you, Jay!"

There wasn't much discussion of Gabby Douglas' hair, which is a nice change of pace, as the focus should remain on her achievements. U-S-A!
