The 2016 Rio Olympics Summer Games ended just two days ago, and I have to admit I’m having withdrawals. While I wish I’d been in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil to watch my favorite athletes perform live, I feel so blessed to have had the opportunity to witness the GOAT Michael Phelps, the Final Five gymnasts, track and field star Matthew Centrowitz, Jr; Carmelo Anthony, and Team USA basketball (and countless others) make history from my TV screen. Can you imagine all the young girls the final five inspired? If you loved seeing Simone Biles, Gabby Douglas, Ali Raisman, Laurie Hernandez, and Madison Kocian win gold and are counting down to the Tokyo Olympics like I am, you’re in luck! This morning The Final Five stopped by the Today show to talk with Hoda Kotb, Savannah Guthrie and Kathie Lee Gifford about how life has changed since they left Rio. They also dished on the paparazzi, their six pack abs, beloved pets, pizza with Zach Efron, SNL, whether or not they’ll have to do the dishes when they get home and more! We have two videos to share with you below. Enjoy! PS: I’m not affiliated with the Today show, so for more information please visit the Today show at Today.com.
