Laurie Hernandez doesn’t know it yet, but she’s probably going to get Stuck In the Middle of another Diaz family scheme.
The Olympic gold medalist — and recent Dancing With the Stars winner — will be paying a visit to the Diaz household in the hopes of experiencing some traditional Latin American home cooking while on the road. But as you can see in the exclusive clip above, there’s a slight problem, as Georgie (Kayla Maisonet) may have slightly embellished when she invited the gymnast (and her personal hero) over to her house. It’s no surprise that things quickly go awry.
“I’m such a fan of Laurie! I think what inspires me the most is how young and dedicated she is,” Maisonet tells EW. “To be a teenager and put everything into something you’re passionate about is HARD! You have friends, and school, and so many distractions, but despite it all, remain focused. That’s something someone at any age should learn from.”
The Disney Channel series follows the adventures of various members of the Diaz household as they navigate life in a family of nine.
The episode, “Stuck in a Gold Medal Performance,” airs Friday at 8 p.m. ET on the Disney Channel.
