Apparently it pays to be an Olympian, especially if you're a fan of The CW. Shortly after it was announced that Gabby Douglas would drop by "The Vampire Diaries" for a guest role, her Fierce Five teammate McKayla Maroney scored a spot on Season 2 of "Hart of Dixie," Warner Bros. announced Tuesday.

Maroney will guest star as Tonya, a friend of Rose’s (played by recurring guest star McKaley Miller), who comes to Rose’s defense. The CW is investing heavily in this year's gold medalists -- Ryan Lochte is also slated to appear as himself in an upcoming episode of "90210."
