Here's How Simone Biles Responds When Told to Smile

Adjust Comment Print

If you're Simone Biles, you know a thing or two about nailing a flawless performance: After all, the 2016 Olympic gold medalist didn't earn those victories (not to mention just a place on the U.S. Olympics Team) without serious skills or effort.

The team got all 9s for both performances, with Carrie Ann telling her not to always 'dance like a metronome, so on the beat'.

"I was waiting for you to smile at some of the compliments - you didn't". Oh Simone Biles you savage.

Biles and Farber received straight 9's for a score of 36 out of 40, so it's easy to see why she was irked by all the conflicting criticisms. Sure, the judges should be honest and there should be some suspense in the show, but these comments felt particularly mean and personal.

Biles' response drew a surprised reaction from the audience. She took the critiques well, but when host Tom Bergeron asked after her second routine why she hadn't been smiling for some of the judge's nicer comments, she had a clap back that was absolutely flawless: "Smiling doesn't win you gold medals".

Because she's already an incredibly talented athlete, it should come as no surprise that Simone has been kicking butt on the ballroom-dancing reality show.

Sasha stressed how hard Simone works, while she admitted that she struggles to understand what the judges want from her in terms of emotions.

Here's a bit of advice: Don't tell anyone to smile. "Loved @Simone_Biles crisp response to my clumsy question. If they don't see that, I don't know what else more I can do".

'You don't know which wild card of sexy or of happy they want to bring, and you nearly have to read their minds and find it, ' she said. "I nearly ran to the bathroom at one point, but I pulled it together".
