Gabby Douglas went through the fire and the storm this Olympic run, but the American gymnast is now holding her head even higher after being tapped to judge Miss America.

The Miss America Organization announced Monday that Douglas will be joining a panel of celebrity judges for the 2017 pageant. “Miss America has been such an amazing event for so many years and I am excited to have the opportunity to judge the competition this year,” Douglas said in a statement. “The contestants are a great example of strong women across America and I especially look forward to hearing the platforms that each of them will represent!”

The other judges currently include Mark Cuban, actress Sara Foster, singer-songwriter Cole Swindell and former Miss America Sharlene Wells Hawke.

Despite taking home her third gold medal, the 2016 Rio Olympics proved to be an emotional rollercoaster for the athlete. Gabby was harshly criticized on social media for her hair, lack of patriotism, being a poor sport, and more. “When they talk about my hair or me not putting my hand on my heart or me being very salty in the stands, they’re really criticizing me. It doesn’t really feel good. It was a little bit hurtful,” she told reporters earlier this month.

The 2017 Miss America Competition will air live from Atlantic City’s Boardwalk Hall on Sunday, September 11 on ABC.
