Smiling is all fine and good, but when you’re a champion, you have to keep your eyes on the prize — just ask Simone Biles.
After receiving some criticism for her performance on Dancing With the Stars on Monday night, HuffPost says the Olympic gold medalist tried to mask her frustration. In her first performance, espnW says she was criticized by judge Carrie Ann Inaba for smiling too much, and in her second performance, host Tom Bergeron wondered why she didn’t smile after receiving some compliments from the judges.
“I was waiting for you to smile at some of the compliments, you didn’t,” said Bergeron, according to HuffPost.
Biles countered with, “Smiling doesn’t win you gold medals.”
