Olympian Simone Biles is setting the record straight on her love life.

“I don’t have a boyfriend!” Biles, 20, told PEOPLE backstage after Monday’s episode of Dancing with the Stars. “Hollywood is trying to get me!”

After becoming a household name at the Rio Olympics last year, Biles said she’s often romantically linked to men she isn’t dating.

“We’re never seen with guys because we didn’t go to school or anything,” she said of herself and her fellow Final Five and other elite gymnasts. “So the first guy they spot us with is our boyfriends.”


She added jokingly: “So, I have seven boyfriends then. I don’t have any favorites. No time.”


During weekly rehearsals for the ABC show, Biles said that mastering the sexiness behind a samba dance with her pro partner Sasha Farber was a bit difficult for her.

“Most kids our age are going out and learning where they fit in in the world and I feel like I’ve missed out on a lot of that,” she said.

“I’ve been on like one date. We went to get frozen yogurt, or sushi. I don’t know which one was a date.”

However, the athlete admitted that she does find a certain fellow season 24 contestant “very” sexy.

“Don’t put that out there,” she said of her attraction to Rashad Jennings. “He’s going to kill me when he sees this!”

Dancing with the Stars airs Mondays (8 p.m. ET) on ABC.
