Simone Biles Talks About 'The Bachelor' And 'DWTS'


Simone Biles is a busy woman nowadays.

You'd think the 19-year-old gymnast would take a breather after winning four gold medals at the 2016 Olympics in Rio, but she's just getting revved up.

The only difference is she's gearing up for the dance floor in preparation for Season 24 of "Dancing With the Stars," where she'll be competing against "Bachelor" heartthrob, Nick Viall.

Luckily, I had the chance to talk with Simone so I asked her if she's just as obsessed with "The Bachelor" as we are.

Judging from her response, it looks like dance floor might get a little awkward this year.

Elite Daily asked Biles if she watches "The Bachelor," and she responded, saying,

(OOF. Sorry, Nick.)

I guess when you're a gold-medal olympian, there isn't much time in your schedule to kick back and watch a two-hour episode of a viral dating series, and we get it.

It's OK, though. I'm sure Nick won't take it to heart if Simone doesn't gush over him like all the women who have watched the show.

Regardless of her "Bachelor" oblivion, Simone seems stoked to be featured on the dancing show and talked about the beginning stages she's gone through as of Friday, March 3.

She said,

WOO! We're excited for you, Simone!

If her dance moves are anything like Laurie Hernandez's, she's bound to tear up the dance floor.

Speaking of Laurie, I asked Simone if she still keeps in touch with the Final Five, and her answer will give you serious friendship goals.

It's true, with schedules as busy as these girls', finding time to hang out with a friend (or watching "The Bachelor") might be a little difficult.

Biles' most recent endeavor consuming most of her time is an admirable one.

The gymnast is currently teaming up with Kellogg's and No Kid Hungry for a #BucketsForBreakfast challenge which will help raise money and awareness to end child hunger. 

When explaining the challenge, she said,

She continued,

Biles encourages her fans to participate in the challenge, post a video to social media and use the hashtag #BucketsForBreakfast to spread the word about child hunger.

So, there you have it.

On top of dancing, rehearsing and finding downtime for friends, Simone is actively working in a charitable organization in effort to raise awareness for child hunger.

She's basically Superwoman, and we can't wait to watch her groove on the dance floor of "Dancing With the Stars."

The next season begins on Monday, March 20.
