2012 Olympic All-Around and Team Champion Gabby Douglas is dazzling audiences across the country on the Kellogg's Tour of Gymnastics Champions. She and the other cast members have now completed 13 of 40 shows in cities across the country. We caught up with Douglas today and asked her a few questions about the tour. Here is what she had to say.

USA Gymnastics: Are you going on all 40 stops?
Gabby: Yes, I'm going to all 40 cities! The tour is so much fun and it's great hanging out with all of the girls and the other cast members on the tour.

USA Gymnastics: What has been the best part of the tour so far?
Gabby: Performing in front of the amazing crowds. Everyone is cheering us on and the energy is super high. It is a very welcoming feeling.

USA Gymnastics: What is it like traveling from city to city and meeting new fans everywhere you go?
Gabby: It's great. I get to see a lot of new cities and I'm trying to enjoy each one. We don't get to stay in the city very long so it is hard to enjoy everything the city has to offer, but the fans are great everywhere we go.

USA Gymnastics: What is it like on the bus traveling from city to city? What do you do?
Gabby: Traveling on the bus is good. I sleep, eat, watch movies. I have a bed on the bus and we have a TV and a kitchen.

USA Gymnastics: What is your favorite performance number on the tour?
Gabby: My favorite number is Party Rock because it is full of energy and it gets the crowd hyped up – I think the crowd loves it.

USA Gymnastics: I know you've met so many celebrities since the Olympic Games. Can you name some of them and what have been your best experiences so far?
Gabby: I met Taylor Swift, Nicki Minaj, Alicia Keys, Miley Cyrus, and Katy Perry. I also loved meeting Oprah Winfrey, First Lady Michelle Obama, and Jay Leno. The Colbert Report TV show was really fun to do. Everyone I've met has been great and we all appreciate the support we are getting from the fans in each city.
