Olympic Gold Medalist Simone Biles Meets Her Crush
Olympian Simone Biles and the rest of the members of America’s Final Five gymnastics team were in for a huge surprise when one of their biggest fans came out to meet them.
Simone hasn’t been shy about her huge crush on actor Zac Efron and Efron has reciprocated the love over social media- revealing that he’s also a huge fan of Simone. The LA Times gives a great behind-the-scenes recap of the meeting, which started with Today co-host Hoda Kotb reminding Biles about what she said the last time they discussed her celebrity crush “Do you remember,” Kotb asked, “when we did the interview last time, you said that if a certain person showed up, you would need a defibrillator?”
It didn’t take long for Simone to figure out what- or should we say who- could be coming out, telling Hoda “Stop,” the gymnast said in disbelief. “If you bring him out, I think I’m gonna pass out. Stop.” She wasn’t the only one who was a big ball of nerves, however. “I don’t know,” said Efron once he made his surprise entry. “I’m the one with butterflies. I was nervous too.”
