Simone Biles has wowed many with her near flawless routines during the Olympic Games in Rio, and it appears someone incredibly special has noticed her as well-her mega celeb crush, Zac Efron.
The situation began back in March, when Biles appeared on the Ellen DeGeneres show and the TV host teased her about her crush on Efron by presenting her with a leotard adorned in his face, joking with her that maybe it would catch Efron's notice.
It did appear to a few months later, when Biles tweeted about the Olympic Trials in July-and Efron responded to wish her the best of luck. Naturally, that elicited an ecstatic reaction from Biles.

@ZacEfron @TheEllenShow OH MY GOSH I THINK I AM GOING TO PASS OUT OH MY GOSH CRYING! THANK YOU — Simone Biles (@Simone_Biles) July 8, 2016
Things didn't end there however, as a few days ago, Efron tweeted more appreciation and support for Biles as she impressed during her routines.
So phenomenal a skill's named after her. Congrats on sticking the Biles and qualifying for the finals @Simone_Biles! https://t.co/7jiUHq03HF — Zac Efron (@ZacEfron) August 9, 2016
@ZacEfron Thanks Zac! I hope you can watch Team Final tomorrow night. — Simone Biles (@Simone_Biles) August 9, 2016
Then, the best Tweet of all was crafted, as Efron took a photo of himself in front of a photo of the entire Final Five, which includes Biles, Aly Raisman, Gabby Douglas, Laurie Hernandez and Madison Kocian, assuring that he was watching them-and even made a heart with his hands.
The flirty exchanges are all we need to hope that this becomes the next hot celeb pairing, and since both do appear to be single (Biles hasn't mentioned any love interests in interviews and Efron broke up with Sami Miro earlier this year)--please, let's ship Zacone.
