Olympic gymnast McKayla Maroney will guest star on 'Hart of Dixie'

Olympic gymnast McKayla Maroney, who was part of the 2012 U.S. gold medal-winning team, has booked a guest star gig on CW’s Hart of Dixie.

Maroney will be coming to Bluebell as Tonya, a friend of Rose (recurring guest star McKaley Miller), who comes to Rose’s defense in an upcoming episode of the drama’s second season. Maroney is actually the third Olympic athlete coming to the CW this fall. Fellow gymnast Gabby Douglas filmed a spot on The Vampire Diaries and swimmer Ryan Lochte is set to appear in an episode of 90210.

Hart of Dixie returns to the CW on Tuesday, Oct. 2 at 8:00 p.m. EST.
