At the start of the show, Farber was asked how nervous he was after learning that Simone Biles was his partner. He said:

Sasha Farber also discussed their first dance and how he got ready for the amazing Simone Biles.

Later, Biles was asked if she was nervous. Being 20 years old at the time, and never having been to school, having never had a boyfriend, it must have been tough for her to dance with Sasha Farber. She agreed that it was.

Foxtrot, Tango, and Rumba were just a few of the traditional dance forms they showcased throughout their nine-week spell as a duet, along with freestyle and modern. Simone and Sasha came in fourth place.

What Simone Biles is doing right now?

Biles is hoping to unwind after a great spell of success in which she won a total of 32 medals at the Olympics and World Championships.

Biles is engaged to NFL player Jonathan Owens and currently resides in Houston, Texas. This is probably because her fiancé is a player with the Houston Texans. According to reports, she bought the house in 2019.
