Fans admiring Simone Biles and Owens

During an episode of Simone vs. herself on Facebook, Biles challenged Jonathan to try out gymnastics rope. However, the Houston Texans player couldn’t do it quickly then. But as a youtube channel of couples’ shared the video of them as a Youtubeshot, Owens won fans’ hearts. 

One user penned, “So adorable he just burnt out, Or Simone was just faster.” Another wrote, “Very infectious laughter/smiles of Simone always gets me.” Meanwhile, one pointed out their conversation and wrote, “This will never not be funny. “I had you about 3/4 of the way…” Whatever, dude.”

Another wrote, “She’s so godly like such a strong woman it’s crazy… I thought men are stronger, but I guess not because she dusted him.” Meanwhile, one penned, “Very beautiful couple! Good to see they both are competitive and can compete with other and not get mad. Simone is the sweetest; love her laugh.”

However, there was one comment which captured everyone’s attention. The user penned, “Simone being a gymnast, knows very well how to use her own body as her strength. Other people normally use other methods to strengthen themselves, however, gymnasts work against their own body. Notice how her boyfriend used his legs to try to help them, but Simone was smart to keep her legs together almost in a pike position and pointing upwards in order to use primarily her core and her arms to pull her up and not allowing her legs to dangle and weigh her down.”

Another youtube user appreciated Owens, “J.O. is one of the most strongest and fastest players in the NFL. But he was NO MATCH against the most powerful woman walking on the face of planet earth…” One wrote, “I love that girl!!!!” for Simone. They are a beautiful couple. But it’s kind of funny why do I get the impression that he is batting way out of his League. He’s one lucky man.”
