Surprise! It’s Zac Efron!

Simone Biles nearly passed out when her celebrity crush, Efron, flew all the way to Rio to surprise the Final Five. But it was Efron who was star struck even before meeting the ladies.

“I totally have butterflies right now,” he told Today‘s Hoda Kotb before meeting Biles, Aly Raisman, Gabby Douglas, Laurie Hernandez and Madison Kocian. “I’m excited more than anything.”

On Tuesday, the Today anchor surprised the gymnasts with the special meeting and Biles could hardly contain herself when the actor walked in to the room.

“Stop. You’re lying. Stop, no way, no way,” Biles said. “Ahhh! Oh my God! Stop, is this real life? Oh my God. Stop.”

The group took photos and shared laughs. And Biles jokingly fainted when the actor leaned in for a kiss on the cheek.

“He’s even more gorgeous in person!” Biles said.

The ladies all swooned as they hung out with the star, but Efron tweeted that meeting the Final Five was an “Olympic dream come true” for him.

Efron told Kotb that he was “captivated” watching the Final Five perform from his couch, so he decided to head to Brazil.

“When I found out Simone and this team were fans, I was like, ‘What kind of guy am I if I don’t show up?”
