Laurie Hernandez continued her winning streak as she took home the crown for last season's Dancing With The Stars. She stopped by The Ellen Show to chat about life after the win.

DeGeneres congratulated Hernandez on winning and remembered being nervous when she was last on the show promoting her team.

The host said she found out that the win meant a lot to Hernandez's family and the gymnast explained that her mother put the mirror-ball trophy in the center of the room atop a coffee table.

Hernandez thinks it is a bit weird that the trophy is there but thankfully, the Olympic Gold medals are hidden in a safe somewhere. The gymnast chatted about her goals moving forward and one of them was to actually go on a date.

She had never been on one and doesn't have a plan. Hernandez joked that as long as the guy looks like Dave Franco that's all that matters.

The DWTS winner also sent some love to her teammates Gabby Douglas and Aly Raisman who were featured in Sports Illustrated. She said she was happy that SI is promoting strong and powerful bodies because it's good for everyone.

As Hernandez continued to chat about her goals, she revealed she really wanted to be on Law & Order. She and DeGeneres exchanged excitement over the show before a big surprise.

Mariska Hargitay, Ice-T and more of the cast and crew surprised Hernandez with a video inviting her to visit them on set and be on the show.

You can watch the awesome moment and more in The Ellen Show video below.
