Simone Biles on Ellen DeGeneres Show (video)
Simone Biles performed on a balance beam on the Ellen DeGeneres Show and received a special present from the host -- what appeared to be a leotard with pictures of Zac Efron‘s face all over it.
Biles, the three-time reigning World all-around champion and super favorite for Rio Olympic gold, has long dreamed of going on DeGeneres’ show and, even longer, had a crush on the actor Efron.
“He doesn’t know that you have a crush on him, but I want you to get his attention,” DeGeneres said. “So I got you something to wear at the Olympics.”
Biles also discussed getting her start in gymnastics at age 6 and her viral video of climbing this rope on Santa Monica Beach.
As for Efron, Biles said he has a girlfriend.
“She used to be a gymnast, too, so maybe I have a chance,” Biles said.
In 2012, U.S. Olympic gymnast Jordyn Wieber performed on uneven bars on DeGeneres’ show.
