5 things the Fab Five are obsessed with (and you probably are, too!)

When we see elite gymnasts on T.V., they look untouchable, like they couldn’t possibly be real girls. But we got the dish from the Fab Five, the United States’ Olympic gold medal-winning women’s gymnastics team, McKayla Maroney, Aly Raisman, Gabby Douglas, Jordyn Wieber and Kyla Ross.  And ya know what? These chicas are just like you.
 
Take a look, then tell us your top-5 #obsessions in the comments.

    Bestsellers

    If you’re tuning in to the Olympics, you might’ve noticed some similarities between this huge international event and a seriously popular fictional one. Does The Hunger Games ring a bell? It’s Kyla’s favorite book. While she’s not exactly facing life or death situations, we’re betting the chance to win gold in London is nerve wracking enough!

    Tunes

    These chicas cannot live without their iPods. From pop music to inspirational gospel, they listen to it all. A few most-played picks for Jordyn’s iPod: “Wild Ones” by Flo Rida,  “What Makes Your Beautiful” by One Direction and “Boyfriend” by Justin Bieber.

    Beauty booty

    World champ Jordyn Wieber is a beauty babe. She keeps her gym bag stocked with CoverGirl favorites, like Wetslicks Fruit Spritzer Lipgloss in Caramel Apple Splash (she loves the flavor), NatureLuxe Silk Foundation (because it’s super light) and LiquiLineBlast Eye Liner (because it’s a pencil that looks like a liquid liner).  And don’t forget that flat iron! She absolutely cannot live without it.

    Drama, drama drama!

    Just ‘cause they clock a ton of time in the gym doesn’t mean they aren’t totally plugged in. Their can’t miss series? Gabby adores Vampire Diaries, while Aly is a major Pretty Little Liars addict. Talk about good taste!

    Their besties

    All teammates claim to be buds, but McKayla and Kyla really are super tight. They started training together when they were tots, and now they’ve hit the big time as part of the Fab Five.
