Olympian Chloe Kim Makes ‘Tonight Show’ Appearance

One of the biggest stars of the 2018 Winter Olympics has been snowboarder Chloe Kim. She took home the gold medal for winning the women’s half pipe event. She became an instant superstar and media sensation after her win. She was inundated with interview requests. She decided her first national TV appearance back home should be on “The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.” Fallon presented her with a giant version of her Kellogg’s corn flakes box while she was on the show. Fallon also had some fun by putting on a blond wig that resembled Kim’s hairstyle.

Kim also participated in Fallon’s famous skit where he has his guests “photo bomb” regular people who are posing for pictures. This basically means that the celebrity will sneak up behind the people and get into the photo without them realizing it. Kim did not appear to be nervous. On the contrary, she has thrived with the media spotlight on her. She seemed to be very comfortable talking to Jimmy and recapping her victorious performance in South Korea. She said that she had a good time. However, she did admit that she was not prepared for the attention that winning the gold medal would bring her.

Kim will be making more TV appearances in the weeks ahead. There is no question that her star is on the rise. Companies will offer her endorsement deals because of her fame and good looks. It will be interesting to see where she will turn up next.

Jimmy Fallon Hosts Chloe Kim

If you’re a fan of Jimmy Fallon, then you know that his show has been largely preempted the past few weeks by the 2018 Winter Olympics. Fortunately for all of us, Jimmy manages to squeeze in some of his light-hearted humor in short, 5 minute bursts between the games called “The Fallon Five”.

Fallon recently hosted Olympic Gold Medalist/all around amazing athlete Chloe Kim to have a chat with her about what it was like taking top prize in her event at the Peyongchang Olympic Games. She spoke about what it was like to dominate her sport, and secure the gold medal before she had even made her final run. Fallon, much to everyone’s delight, couldn’t resist using Kim to have a little fun with fans, and took to the streets with her to photobomb tourists looking to snap some Olympic-themed selfies.

Kim also had the opportunity to reveal her new Sports Illustrated cover, and was surprised to learn that she was going to also be featured on upcoming Kellogg’s Corn Flakes boxes! You can see more of Chloe Kim and Jimmy Fallon goofing around at the Games here! She may have wished for a more nail-biting competition than the one she dominated at this year’s games, but her plate is going to be full as she returns to her hometown with millions of new fans!
