Conan's 1st Deaf Guest

The first deaf guest appeared on Conan Tuesday. Ashley Fiolek is a two-time women's Moto X Super X gold medalist. Her father served as her interpreter during the Conan interview. After practicing in the green room, Ashley said to her dad, "You have fun, too." She's recently been featured in a Vogue magazine article and is set to appear on ABC Family's Switched at Birth as a romantic love interest of one of the characters. Ashley returns to X Games competition next week at the Women's Moto X Racing competition (June 30 on ESPN). A video of her appearance on Conan is posted below.
