'Hart of Dixie' Preview: McKayla Maroney is not impressed with Zoe

Olympic Gold Medalist McKayla Maroney is coming to “Hart of Dixie” on Tuesday and it’s safe to say that she’s not a fan of Zoe’s. The gymnast is guest starring as Tonya, one of Rose’s best friends, and when the boy Rose likes develops a crush on Zoe, Tonya  makes it clear to the doctor that no one is here for that in “Baby, Don’t Get Hooked On Me.”

[SPOILERS AHEAD]

But Tonya might be the only person in town, aside from Rose, who wants to see the crush nipped in the bud. Wade and even Brick are encouraging Zoe to just go with it because they want to see the football team win.
