Chloe Kim of the United States smiles in the Snowboard Ladies' Halfpipe Qualification on day three of the PyeongChang 2018 Winter Olympic Games at Phoenix Snow Park on February 12, 2018 in Pyeongchang-gun, South Korea. 

Seventeen year-old snowboarder and first generation Korean-American Chloe Kim came into the 2018 Winter Olympics as the favorite to take home gold. And when the California native dropped into the half pipe Monday night (Feb.12) in Pyeongchang, South Korea, she somewhat nonchalantly scored a nearly perfect score of 98.25 in her final run to position herself as the youngest female snowboarder to win in the event.

And, understandably, everyone's fallen in love with this snowboarding legend in the making. Maybe it's her age, her demeanor, or her tweets about food literally during the runs, but Kim's allure is undeniable. Celebrities, who are just like us, seemed to be just as enthralled by the teen as the rest of us, with tweets of adulation pouring in after her win.
