In the video, Biles interacted with her fans, taking several of their questions. One of them asked about her preferences when it comes to choosing a partner. While mentioning several good qualities, she also stressed on an aspect which she wouldn’t want.

She said“Being positive is good. I think, when somebody thinks they know everything like a big know-it-all, dislike. I wouldn’t even say too opinionated, I would just say too negative Nancy. Negative Nancy’s got to go.”

It’s safe to say that Owens ticks all the boxes on Biles’ list. Along with sharing endearing moments, they also showed immense support for each other, especially when the other performed on the big stage.
