Being a seventeen year old national Olympic superstar gymnast must lead to a very busy life and a hectic schedule. Scroll through your Facebook news feed and you’ll probably see several events and announcements from the star, most recently her plans to attend Gospel artist Martha Munizzi’s Viva La Woman event with her mom. Empowered is most certainly the best way to live. Will Gabby be empowered in all areas? Even love?

Most recently another “superstar” has been vying for Gabby’s attention. YouTube sensation and Honor Graduate Leon Purvis noted for gaining attention from President Obama and hanging out with Justin Bieber is on his second petition for an evening with Gabby.

When Purvis initially asked Gabby to attend his senior prom with him, she “sadly” declined due to a scheduling conflict. Leon is back, more accomplished, and giving it another shot! From the looks of social media it looks like he’s making much headway! Leon got a response from Gabby’s mother promising to “see what she can do”. He also got a lead from Gabby herself on her favorite restaurant.

Since Gabby’s initial rejection, Leon has not failed to do his homework or follow up for her attention. Purvis has seriously looked into the facts to know more about the life and perspective of the girl he admires. He has read Gabrielle’s first book “Grace, Gold, and Glory” along with her latest project “Raising the Bar”. Leon is persistent, he is convincing, has his facts straight, and he’s not giving up anytime soon. 

Even with being an all-around Olympic Gold champion, having made history and that oh so killer Nike Commercial, it’s sure Gabby like everyone else could use more good company, which Leon is suitable to provide.

The recent graduate took another shot at landing time with the gymnast he looks up to in his most recent video. Gabby promised to connect with Leon if she reached 800,000 followers on twitter, she still hasn’t reached the goal yet. However, Doug still followed Purvis account back after her moms reply. Hopefully there will be no more scheduling conflicts, and these two superstars can go on a proper date. Leon is anxiously awaiting a reply, but now the world and all of social media want to know as well: Gabby Douglas, “Want to Go on a Date” …with Leon Purvis?

We sure do hope so! Gabrielle tweets at: https://twitter.com/gabrielledoug
