After taking home the gold at the Summer Olympics in Rio, Simone Biles is back stateside.

Below, you’ll learn all about must-have gym bag items, what gold really tastes like and more!

In the rapid-fire question round, the 19-year-old showed off her gym (yes, she’s got her own practice space!), dished about her Final Five teammates (and how they prep for competitions by listening to music) and complained about the newfound paparazzi presence since competing in the Summer Games.

The Olympian also shared her favorite Disney princess (Ariel), the food she can’t live without (pizza, duh!) and the most popular celebrity to follow her on Twitter (Zendaya).
