When Us Weekly chatted with two-time Olympic gold medalist Gabby Douglas at the P&G Family Home in London August 8, the gymnast said if she ever met her celebrity crush, Ian Somerhalder, "I'll show him my gold medal!"

The 16-year-old athlete made good on her promise when she filmed a cameo on Somerhalder's The Vampire Diaries September 19. The leading man, 33, tweeted a picture with Douglas from the show's set in Georgia. "Eating Gabby's gold medal!" Somerhalder wrote. "Yum."

"I had a blast meeting everyone," Douglas raved, to which Dobrev responded, "I hope you had fun -- you were great ! [Your] smile is even brighter in person."
