Simone Biles: Pretty Little Liars set invites Olympian
Simone Biles seems so nice, but could she be the next member of Team A?
Shortly after winning the gold medal in the women’s individual all-around final at the Olympics in Rio, Biles was invited to come to the set of one of her favorite TV shows, Pretty Little Liars.
“Hey Simone! I heard you’re a big PLL fan. Well, we are huge fans of yours and everybody there,” showrunner Marlene King said in a video posted to the official Pretty Little Liars Twitter account. “We’re so proud of what you’re doing in Rio. The Final Five, we love it. Come see us as soon as you get home and bring your friends.”
“Hey @Simone_Biles! @imarleneking wants you & the #FinalFive to come to PLL set when you get back – are you in?” read the tweet accompanying the video.
Despite what we can only imagine was a slew of people vying for Biles’ attention following her big win Thursday night, she responded five minutes later. “YES X27238833,” she wrote.
“So proud of you and the #FinalFive,” King replied. “See you in Rosewood.”
This isn’t the first time Pretty Little Liars has hosted a breakout star of the Olympics — swimmer Missy Franklin appeared on the show shortly after her medal-winning run at the 2012 Games in London.
Star Shay Mitchell also posted a video congratulating Team USA’s gymnasts. “We are so proud of you because you’re rocking it over there with all your gold medals,” she says.
