Louie Vito Louie Vito

If you were bummed that Louie Vito finished last at the Winter X Games after falling on all three of his superpipe runs, don't be. "I'm just getting it all out of my system," the 21-year-old snowboarder jokes to TVGuide.com. "Now I won't fall in Vancouver." Armed with two versions of the must-have trick of the season — the double cork 1080 — Vito, who finished eighth on Dancing with the Stars last season, is ready to continue the United States' domination in the Olympic halfpipe. Get the scoop on which tricks he's planning to throw, why he will be tweeting throughout the games and what he wants to take from Apolo Anton Ohno.

Catch the men's halfpipe Wednesday at 8/7c on NBC.

TVGuide.com: Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Tony Dovolani came out to the X Games for you. What was it like having your Dancing buddies there?
Louie Vito:
Yeah, that was really awesome. I was so stoked to see them. Maks' brother, Val, came too. We've been talking about it for a while. It was cool for them to come into my world a little bit and see what everything's all about, see me in my element since until then we only knew each other through what they did best. We had a lot of fun.
