Later in their meeting, Biles got to return the favor when she planted a kiss on Efron’s cheek.
Thankfully she held it together and managed to grab a few snaps and a Snapchat video with the Hollywood hunk. “Her personality’s on display all the time, but it really blooms here on the floor”, one commentator says as Biles heads right into a double twist.
Just so we’re all clear, HE kissed her first, ok?
The 19-year-old Olympian, who has won four golds at the games and is the most decorated gymnast in American history, is a long-time fan of Efron and has been harbouring a crush on him for quite some time. Biles tweeted photos of the meet-and-greet.
He continued: “They won gold medals, they were crushing it the entire Olympics, and I was like hiding in a closet waiting to come in, so I didn’t know what to think”.
In July, prior to the start of the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio, Biles revealed she and Mariano were in a relationship with a message to fans on Twitter.
She has a point: Although she’s taking home most of Team USA’s gymnastic golds, her teammates’ performances weren’t too shabby. Meanwhile, all the other teammates sat in silence looking in their phones, trying not to laugh, because they know how serious she is about Efron. Raisman told Joyce she would consider it.
In response, Mariano jokingly posted: “Hey @zacefron I saw her first …”
Fellow medal-winning gymnast Arthur Mariano has laid claim to Simone and warned Zac Efron to back off, seeing as he’d seen her first.
But she sure acted like one when the “Today” show surprised the US gymnastics star and her teammates with a visit from movie and TV heartthrob Zac Efron in Rio. She reminded Biles about asking the actor to come to Rio, to which Biles responded, “If you bring him out, I’m going to pass out”.
