It’s not every day our favorite Olympic gymnast stops by our favorite morning show. But that’s exactly what happened when Simone Biles stepped foot onto the Live with Kelly and Ryan stage yesterday. Not surprisingly, Kelly Ripa's ensemble still managed to be the highlight of the entire episode.
The 24-year-old champion paid a visit to Live to tell the 50-year-old TV personality and her co-host about her upcoming Gold Over America Tour. In addition to Biles, actor Ben Platt also stopped by to discuss his new film, Dear Evan Hansen.
Right on queue, producers shared a variety of footage from the installment on the show’s official Instagram account. The posts included a video of Ripa and Seacrest chatting with the athlete about where she keeps all of her medals (spoiler alert: her mom holds onto them in a safe) as well as a selfie of the trio doing Biles’s signature pose.
