Simone Biles and Jonathan Owens form a highly competitive couple, evident in their playful discussions about who holds the title of the superior athlete between them. The Olympic gold medalist, 26, shared insights into their friendly rivalry during an appearance on Peacock’s Back That Year Up.
Host Kenan Thompson posed the question of who the better athlete in their household is, prompting Biles to diplomatically acknowledge their proficiency in their respective sports—gymnastics for her and football for Owens. However, she humorously asserted, “At the end of the day, gymnastics is harder, if he agrees or not.”
The conversation delved into their good-natured competitions, with Biles revealing that they’ve attempted to evaluate each other based on difficulty and ability. Despite their efforts to settle the debate, it remains an ongoing topic in their relationship. Biles disclosed, “We vowed once we got married, we wouldn’t talk about it again. But it keeps coming up every time.”
The amusing banter continued as Biles recounted instances of Owens attempting her workout routine in the gym and her excelling at an NFL workout. This lighthearted rivalry adds a playful dynamic to their relationship.
The discussion coincided with Owens facing criticism for a podcast appearance where he referred to himself as the “catch” in their relationship. Biles responded with grace, expressing support for Owens and emphasizing their strong bond. Despite the external commentary, the couple remains “locked in” and unfazed by the opinions.
In the face of continued criticism, Biles shared a photo on social media with a caption questioning if the discussions were concluded, maintaining a light-hearted approach to the ongoing attention. The couple’s enduring love and shared laughter serve as a testament to their solid connection.
