Gabby Douglas

New Face of Corn Flakes!

What do corn flakes, milk and Gabby Douglas have in common? They'll all be featured on Kelloggs cereal boxes this fall ... 'cause the Olympic champ just inked a major endorsement deal with the cereal company!

After sweeping the women's All-around gymnastics final and being the first African-American to win a gold medal in the category ... Gabby went on the "Today" show Friday and announced the major cereal deal.

The 16-year-old will be the face of Kelloggs Corn Flakes starting this fall, so every American can wake up feeling like a champ.

This is the first of many deals Gabby is likely to sign on to ... she made history with her gold medal and she's still young enough to compete in the 2016 Games in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil ... which could mean many more deals to come.

Fun Fact: Kelloggs also tapped Michael Phelps to be on their boxes back in 2008 after he killed in in Beijing.

Take that, Wheaties.

just my opinion    

she has so much grace and maturity for a 16 yr old...it seems like a lot of teenagers now lack the passion to really follow through with talents and hobbies in favor of video games and internet activity...i hope she acts as an inspiration to kids out there. remember in the 90's when we actually played outside and ran around all day?

The first thing that came to mind is the counter ad by Wheaties:
 
Corn Flakes, if you want to not quite reach 5 foot.

Good for you Gabby! glad to see you're getting an endorsement deal. Now if Condi Rice and Uncle Tom Oprah can just keep their mouths shut about the color of your skin and just call you an American Gold medalist it will be great. I think everyone has had enough of this African American crap, when Phelps wins I don't hear anyone say he is white?
