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.

FIRST AND FOREMOST, CONGRATULATIONS TO GABRIELLE DOUGLAS. SHE WORKED HARD AND MADE GOOD ON A DREAM.

I'm hoping things go as well for Lolo Jones.

Also, I happen to really like cinnamon corn flakes and can't find them anymore.

She is a beautiful girl. Love her smile and her work ethic. I hope she makes millions in endorsements. Life is short and the career of an athlete very short, and that is barring injury. I say make as much as you can while you can. Just hope she is able to have fun with it but keep a cool head, too. She seems like a smart girl with a caring mom so I think she will be just fine.

I think she's more suited for the face of Cocoa Puffs.

More woes for NBC after it shows ad featuring monkey doing gymnastics, right after Gabby Douglas' big win


Commercial was for Animal Practice - an upcoming NBC sitcom


NBC says 'no offense was intended' with the ad

So NBC apologized because they think black people look like monkeys? Now thats just racists!

Hope she has good person managing her $$$$ so she doesn't wake up one day and find out her family and friends have spent it all.

Hope they change that stupid rule that kept Jordan out of the All Around. She might have beaten Gabby and now we'll never know. Jordan's world championship standing should have been an automatic pass into the Olympic competition.

With that smile - Colgate and Crest should be getting in a bidding war about - - - - - - NOW!

And any smart cosmetic company wanting to market to women and teens of color should sign her up, too.
