Zac Efron & Simone Biles Have an Epic Twitter Romance Going On

Olympic gold medalist Simone Biles has a new number one fan. Zac Efron, everyone’s childhood crush, is falling for America’s favorite gymnast via Twitter. The pair have been flirting it up over the past week as Simone prepared for the gymnastics finals in Rio.

When Zac congratulated her on qualifying for the finals, Simone responded with the class that only a true fangirl possesses. 

Simone also responded to Zac directly, tweeting, “Thanks Zac! I hope you can watch Team Final tomorrow night.”

Their social media love affair first began back in March when Ellen DeGeneres gifted the gymnast with a Zac Efron-printed leotard. The magic continued when Simone told NBC about the Zac Efron cardboard cutout—which she used to kiss on the cheek—that occupies her bedroom. 

Finally, Tuesday night, Zac cheered on his girl and made sure everyone knew he was watching Simone get her head in the game.

Looks like Zac doesn’t need Tinder to find love after all.
