Gabby is set to make an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Thursday (February 18), and in her interview, she opened up about that super scary fall early in the season.

“I think it was at least 8 to 10 feet in the air, and that was my first time ever doing aerial work, it was super fun,” she said. “My left shoulder got too much outside of the ring and that’s why I fell. But honestly, I was so fortunate and grateful to have Cotton Candy’s full getup on because she softened the fall.”

Ellen then mentioned that people were worried that she wasn’t talking right after the fall, and this is why…

“When I fell, I am very, I love my teeth, and so I was checking each and every tooth to see if they were still there,” Gabby recalls. “I was like, ‘No, please. No chips or anything.’ So I’m like checking my teeth and everyone’s like, ‘Cotton Candy, speak to us. Are you in pain?’ And I’m just on the floor for at least two minutes, like, ‘My teeth are good, my teeth are fine.’ They’re like, ‘Call the ambulance, call the ambulance!’ And I’m like maybe I should get up and tell them that I’m fine. So I get up and I’m like, ‘Let’s go again, guys!’”
