Kickin' It Kickin' It

Life imitates art on Monday's episode of Kickin' It when Olympic gold medalist Gabby Douglas stops by to hit the mats (Aug. 12 at 8:30/7:30c on Disney XD).

Douglas, 17, makes her second scripted television appearance — she guest-starred on The Vampire Diaries last season — as an unlikely coach who saves the day when Kim's (Olivia Holt) entire gymnastics team bails on her after an embarrassing loss. And who better to step in than an all-around Olympic champion? Douglas (playing herself) takes over as the coach of Kim's team just one week before a big competition against Seaford's archrivals.

Check out this exclusive preview of Douglas's guest shot on Kickin' It.
