Nearly 5,000 media outlets from around the world have descended on Texas ahead of the Super Bowl this weekend, but one athlete who's not even playing in the big game is making quite a splash.
Simone Biles, who took home four gold medals in the Rio Olympics, has been reporting for Inside Edition as a special Super Bowl correspondent in her hometown of Houston.
At Monday’s media night at Minute Maid Park, all eyes were on Biles.
She took selfies with fans, gave a shout out to the troops and stopped some dead in their tracks who exclaimed, “Oh my God, she is beautiful!”
Even police and players stopped for photos with Biles, as well as the New England Patriots mascot.
As the 19-year-old made her rounds chatting with the players – the four-foot nine-inch Biles was photographed next to the Atlanta Falcons tallest player, Levine Toilolo, who stands at six-foot eight inches.
She was also photographed with other towering Falcons and members of the Patriots.
Simone Biles will be attending the Super Bowl on Sunday thanks to PrimeSport, which helped secure her tickets to the game.
