    Matt Centrowitz, track and field Olympian, said he wasn't a huge fan of turkeys when asked how he felt about them.

    And Dawn Harper-Nelson, two-time olympic medalist, was immediately suspicious of where the interview was going.

    Tori Bowie, Olympic track and field athlete, was NOTTTTTTTT having it. Not even a little bit.

    Jenny Simpson, on the other hand, was all about it.

    Katelin Snyder eventually was just straight-up chillin' with the turkey.

    And Tori Bowie was still REALLY trying to be ~pals~ with the turkey, but it wasn't happening.

    But by the end of the "interview," the Olympians were so cool with the turkey, they were snapping selfies together.
