Simone Biles has sky-rocketed herself to international fame, and rightly so. The 19-year-old Olympian has solidified herself as the best American gymnast of all time. She has also tied the world record for most Olympic gold medals for a gymnast in a single year. Pretty impressive for a teenager, no?
But just because Biles is a superstar, doesn't mean she doesn't get starstruck herself. Recently Efron tweeted about Biles' incredible athletic ability.
To understand just how big of a deal this was to Simone, you need to realize she's obsessed with the Hollywood Heartthrob. Her love for Zac Efron was first made public on The Ellen DeGeneres show back in March.
She literally has a cardboard cutout of Efron in her room.
But it didn't stop there. Efron kept tweeting out his support for the Final Five gymnastic team.
Simone was losing her Olympic MIND.
NBC caught wind of the story (how could they not), and flew Zac Efron to Rio to surprise Simone and the rest of the Final Five. The plan was to surprise the girls during their appearance on The Today Show.
"When I found out Simone and this team were fans, I was like, 'What kind of guy am I if I don't show up?" Efron said to The Today Show. "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. I kind of was getting nervous myself, but it ended up being so sweet."
Check out all these pictures from the meet-up. It's probably the cutest thing you'll ever see. Simone looks over the moon excited, even though obviously nothing will top her Olympic wins.
proof : had to do a retake bc I thought we were taking a picture then he kissed me instead ❤️ pic.twitter.com/rld33V14qe— Simone Biles (@Simone_Biles) August 16, 2016
