I thought my day was made when I saw that photo of Tyler Blackburn, Michael Trevino, Stephen Amell and other TV hotties on Bullett earlier today. But I wasn’t the only one to notice that the photo was suspiciously devoid of a pair of Salvatore brothers. Sometimes, all you have to do is ask the Internet, and you shall receive your heart’s desire. Actually, MORE than your heart’s desire. You receive one Salvatore brother, in the form of Ian Somerhalder, and one Fierce Five member, Gabrielle Douglas. (If this pic were photobombed by Paul Wesley and McKayla Douglas, I would spontaneously combust, so this will do just fine, thank you.)
“Eating @gabrielledoug ‘s Gold medal!yummmmmmm…,” Somerhalder wrote with the pic. Is Gabby making an appearance in Mystic Falls as Bonnie’s long-lost cousin? Pretty please?
Nina Dobrev, who used to compete in rhythmic gymnastics, was super psyched about Gabby’s visit to the Vampire Diaries set. “First thought at 530am when I woke up this morning: ‘What to wear when meeting an Olympian Gold Medalist?’” she tweeted.
BTW, Ian fans, the actor is participating in a live Twitter chat tonight at 9 p.m. with @TomsofMaine for something called #50SFG. And yeah, we got excited thinking that was a 50 Shades of Grey reference, but it’s actually for a nonprofit contest Ian’s helping to judge, called 50 States for Good. OK, we can get behind that too.
