Ellen DeGeneres Prank on Olympic Gold Medalist Simone Biles
Spring, Texas – April 20th, 2017 (ENEWS): Springs’ very own Olympic gold medalist Simone Biles appeared on The Ellen Show to talk about her venture on Dancing With the Stars, but Ellen DeGeneres had other things in mind. First, she asked Biles if it’s true that she wants to get her own apartment. “Yes—if my parents allow it, that is,” the 20-year-old athlete said, adding, “If they don’t let me out, I just might have to sneak out in the middle of the night.”
But first, she needs to figure out the basics. “I need to learn how to cook, pay bills, do laundry. Well, I do know how to do laundry; I just had a mistake with the last load I did. It didn’t work. At my house, the washer and dryer look different—but this one didn’t,” she said. Anything else Biles might need? “Maybe a roommate,” she told DeGeneres, “because I’m scared of the dark.”
Biles isn’t a kid anymore, and she’s looking forward to turning 21 in 2018. To celebrate the milestone birthday, she said, “My brother wants to take me to Vegas, go see a show—maybe Magic Mike.” DeGeneres surprised her with VIP tickets to see the show at the Hard Rock Hotel.
