America’s new sweetheart, Olympic gold medalist Chloe Kim, made an appearance on the Tonight Show Fallon Five, where she explained how it feels to win a gold medal. “Well, I felt really empty at first,” Kim told Jimmy Fallon. “Does that make sense? Like, just emotionless. Like I was just, like, there.”

Fallon asked her why she did her final run in the women’s snowboard halfpipe when she had already won the gold. Kim said she would have been mad at herself if she didn’t, because she knew she could do better.  She admitted that she’s highly competitive with herself. “If I know I can do better, I’m gonna do everything I can to just do the best I can,” she said.

The 17-year-old, who between her Olympic runs tweeted about ice cream, churros, and breakfast sandwiches, once again proved that she’s just like us when she and Fallon photobombed unsuspecting fans at 30 Rock in New York City. Fallon wore a blond wig, matching USA beanie, and a fake gold medal!


And the five-minute show was made even more awesome when Fallon revealed that Kim’s face will now be gracing the boxes of Kellogg’s Corn Flakes in a store near you.
