Access Hollywood sat down with the figure skating sensation and uncovered five fun facts about Gracie:

Her Favorite Music: “I love pop music… some hip hop… not super big into rap, but I love Rihanna. I love Alicia Keys. Rihanna was my first concert I went to. I love her.”

Her Favorite Movies: “I like a big mix but probably comedies… romantic comedies are my favorite.”

Her Favorite TV Shows: “Definitely ‘How I Met Your Mother.’ My sister and I powered through all the seasons, which, actually, I am kind of impressive ‘cause there are a lot of episodes. It’s kind of low brow, but the show ‘Bob’s Burgers’ is hilarious, and being from the Midwest I can kind of relate to a lot of the jokes. ‘Orange is The New Black’ is a Netflix Exclusive, I think — that’s really funny. ‘Pretty Little Liars’ — my sister and I read the books, so we stuck to it for the first season, but it started to kind of drift off, so did we. ‘Modern Family’ is always in there.”

Her Celebrity Crush: “Josh Hutcherson. [I am a] ‘Hunger Games’ fan. Team Peta!”

She’s A Juggler: “It’s a hidden talent but when we were in elementary school, our P.E. teacher read a lot of articles about the eye-hand coordination and how it can help not just hand-eye coordination, but it works different parts of your brain and just another skill. So before school, she organized a juggling class once a week and then a cup stacking class the other week. And we all love the juggling class… almost everyone in the whole fifth grade class that I was in — 90 percent of us could juggle, which is something you don’t see every day.”
