Zac Efron Leaves Rio and Has Even More Competition as Another Hunk Catches Simone Biles's Eye
It looks like Zac Efron has even more competition for Simone Biles's heart. After the actor revealed he had already left Brazil when the Olympic medalist asked if he would be watching her Team U.S.A.'s flag during the Closing Ceremony, it didn't take long for another suitor to swoop in. Another man makes an appearance in Biles's latest Snapchat videos to rival for the Olympic superstar's affections.
After enjoying a well-deserved beach day with her Final Five teammates, Biles relaxed poolside, capturing the company of a new friend, British gymnast Brinn Bevan, 19. In addition to some quality pool time, the two dined across each other during a group meal and even ended the night with a pizza party with fellow gymnast Danell Leyva. Biles tweeted a photo riding piggyback on a shirtless Bevan, in which the two are all smiles. Look out, Zac!
The world has been watching—and collectively swooning—as we've followed the adorable interactions unfold between the Hollywood hunk and America's gold-medal-winning sweetheart. After admitting she had a giant crush on the High School Musical alum, Biles and Efron began engaging in some super adorable tweets as he showed his support for the Final Five. The record-breaking Olympic gymnast (who keeps a life-size cardboard cutout of Efron in her Texas bedroom) was then surprised by her childhood crush on Tuesday as Efron flew down to Rio see her in person, even planting a kiss on her cheek.
The day after the duo's heart-melting kiss, Biles was seen with another hunky suitor, her "Brazilian boyfriend" (and confirmed platonic friend), gymnast Arthur Nory Mariano. He took to Instagram to share of photo of himself kissing Biles with, "Hey @zacefron I saw her first..."
Hey @zacefron I saw her first... She is my girl ❤️😁🙏🏻 Proud of you Simone! You are phenomal in whole world and special. You made history. Love u "sai daqui ZéKi Éfrom, ta pensando que eu sou bobo é?

It seems like everyone is fighting for Biles's affections, and we don't blame them. Boys' attention aside, one thing she's certainly collected from the Olympic Games is an impressive collection of medals.
Get it, girl!
