Olympic gold seems to be the secret to winning the Mirrorball Trophy. Though we are only one week into Dancing with the Stars season 24, we already have two athletes, Simone Biles and Rashad Jennings, as frontrunners. Biles could be the second consecutive Olympic gymnast to take home the Mirrorball Trophy!
Dancing with the Stars season 24 premiered last week and the athletes are going for the win! NFL-pro Rashad Jennings is showing he’s got the moves with Emma Slater. Meanwhile Slater’s fiancé, Sasha Farber is partnered with another sports star, Simone Biles on Dancing with the Stars season 24 and is at the top of the leaderboard. If it continues, she’d be following in her teammate and DWTS season 23 winner, Laurie Hernandez’s footsteps and taking home the Mirrorball Trophy. Besides ruling the gymnastic floor and the ballroom, the 20-year-old knows how to rock Instagram.
The Ohio native celebrated her 20th birthday on March 14, only a few days before the season premiere of DWTS. Don’t go by her 4’8″ height —everything this pint-sized Olympian does is larger than life! She made her ballroom debut with Sasha Farber, dancing an exciting tango to “Untouchable” by Tritonal & Cash Cash. The pair were scored 8’s from each judge, bringing their total score to 32, the highest of the night. Rashad Jennings and Emma Slater were behind by a single point. Biles is so amazing; even her Instagram is better than ours could ever be! Gush over this amazing young lady in the hottest pics from her Instagram.
#1. Hope your smile will always remain bright as this birthday pic, Simone!
#2. There’s no time or place where these two don’t rock the dance floor!
#4. She is literally putting herself in Laurie’s shoes to win. (P.S. Charo looks rightfully afraid!)
#5. Sports and modeling come together in Simone’s Sports Illustrated spread with Aly Raisman.
#6. The summer beauty got the stomach and ear piercings after winning the all-round gymnastics title twice. What a way to reward oneself!
#7. If you didn’t think this photo could get any funnier, Shaq posted a head-swap version.
#8. She’s beauty, she’s grace, no one can stop her from taking first place!
