McKayla Maroney On 'Hart Of Dixie': Behind The Scenes Look At Olympian's CW Appearance (VIDEO)

McKayla Maroney is not impressed with Zoe Hart (Rachel Bilson).

Ahead of her appearance on The CW's "Hart Of Dixie," the Olympic gold medalist opened up about her stint on the series in a behind the scenes clip.

"I have some attitude," Maroney explained of her guest stint, noting that acting is something she's always wanted to do ... second to winning a gold medal, of course. "It's definitely an amazing stepping stone to go from something that has been my goal my entire life to moving into something else so big for me."

Check it out below:

"Hart Of Dixie" isn't the only show Maroney has her eye on, however. In an interview with "Teen Vogue," she admitted she has her sights set elsewhere.

"I really want to be on 'Awkward' or 'How I Met Your Mother,'" she said. "But I'm not really fit for that show because I'm kind of young. 'Awkward' is hilarious."

"Hart Of Dixie" airs on Tuesdays at 8 p.m. EST on The CW.
