‘AGT’s Julianne Hough Overwhelmed By Gorillas During African Trip
New America’s Got Talent judge Julianne Hough met one of the locals on her trip to Rwanda with her husband Brooks Laich. I don’t mean a local selling t-shirts at the airport. She met a gorilla and became a blubbering mess.
Julianne and Brooks were married two years ago before Julianne got a seat between Simon Cowell and Gabrielle Union on AGT. So, they decided to take a trip to Africa to celebrate. Rather than going to Tanzania, Kenya, or South Africa like most tourists, they went to Rwanda. I don’t expect that the tourist industry in Rwanda is booming given the 1994 genocide and all, but I guess there are gorillas there.
Julianne Hough’s Reaction To Gorilla
In this video she posted on Instagram, Julianne gets close to a HUGE male gorilla. It’s closer than I would get, let’s just say that. Those things are super strong and aggressive. But this particular dude was just chilling and eating some fruit. Julianne was so overwhelmed with being close to a gorilla in the wild that she started crying. I’ve been on an African safari and it is pretty moving to see these animals in their natural habitat and not at the Bronx zoo.
Some might say that humans going and gawking at these endangered creatures is a bad thing. Not me. If Julianne Hough can raise awareness of their plight by going and crying in the jungle, then more power to her. To be honest he didn’t seem that bothered by her. Maybe it’s best that he didn’t try and comfort her though. Gorillas can rip your arms off.
Julianne Hough’s Golden Buzzer
But Julianne will be back tomorrow night on AGT where she will finally hit her Golden Buzzer. Who will it be? We don’t know. Tune into AGT tomorrow night and to The Talent Recap show on Wednesday to find out.
