In the News

This week, Jessica, Olympian Jenni Pinches, and Emma Bailey chat about the latest gymternet controversy and BBC One’s Tumble episodes three and four:

  • News broke over Labor Day weekend that a hack took place that exposed racy photos of several celebrities and athletes, including McKayla Maroney. We discuss how the gymternet has responded–specifically how Gymnastike and parent company Flocast, handled the news–and the backlash they have received.
  • How much Jessica loves coach, Katie Richards from Heathrow who presents stickers for goals met and gives exactly zero craps about the feelings of wimps.
  • Was it fair that this week the celebrities didn’t have to use real rhythmic equipment?
  • All trampolines should be covered with rose petals from now on.
  • The awkward sexual innuendo moment between Louis Smith and host, Alex.
  • The magic Dave-Roy Wood must be working on Amelle because she hasn’t developed any mental blocks after a terrifying crash!
  • How to avoid accidental choking when attempting rhythmic gymnastics.
  • Behind the scenes scoop from Emma and Jenni who were in the studio.
