The Telefile

The U.S. athletes won't miss some of their favorite shows, despite their busy Olympic training schedule. So what shows do they choose to watch between the gym and practice? Television Without Pity got the dirt. If you had to guess, you'd probably say the younger athletes watch MTV, BET, HBO, American Idol, Dancing With the Stars, etc. and well you'd guess right. Perhaps they are taking a little advice from the infamous Tila Tequila or the Real World cast members (hopefully not) or falling head-over-heels for one of Idol's now famous David's.

I can't help but agree with the athletes' fairly unanimous decision to watch Friends, which in my opinion, is quite possibly the best show on TV. It looks like laughing is the key to choosing a good movie or picking a good TV show for these athletes. And since Bravo seems to be a leading station amongst many of the female athletes, maybe Bravo and the Project Runway contestants, will take the girl's advice and decide to design and create a suit for the gold medalist... it would definitely make for an entertaining episode. So if you think training all day doesn't allow time for much other stuff, you're probably wrong. Even if they are hitting the gym everyday, these Olympic stars still make time for their favorite TV shows and a good laugh. Check out who liked what by watching here, and don't forget to see more of TWoP Asks.
