Gaston from Beauty and the Beast challenged to push-up contest (and also gets schooled by a little girl)

Posted By on Mon, Jan 5, 2015 at 5:16 PM


Gaston, the very tall and arrogant hot guy character from Beauty and the Beast, went viral twice recently in guest videos from Walt Disney World. The first time was in early November, when he got into a sexist argument with a little girl about who was better – him or the Beast. After he tells the little girl to go back to the kitchen and make him a sandwich, she taunts him with threats that the Beast will beat him up in a fight and win a race against him. You can view that one here:

On Jan. 2, Gaston became Internet famous again, when he was challenged to a push-up contest by Walt Disney World visitor Blake Platt, who says he think she's stronger than Gaston. See how that worked out for him below.
