KCA Fun Fact: The Flying Tomato

Posted on Mar 19, 2011

You might not know this, but back in the day, people used to throw tomatoes at performers who weren't that great. But when it comes to this KCA nominee nicknamed "The Flying Tomato," that just isn't the case. This dude is so fierce that he's won two Olympic medals! So who is he already? He's Kids' Choice Award nominee Shaun White!

Apparently Shaun used to love his nickname and would even wear headbands with a Flying Tomato logo on it, but maybe he's outgrown the title. He also gets called "Animal" a lot, like the character on The Muppet Show.

Shaun is up for Favorite Male Athlete this year at the KCAs and we're willing to bet that if he wins, he'll prop that blimp up right next to his two Olympic medals. Vote Shaun White for Favorite Male Athlete!
