Olympic figure skater Meryl Davis has an issue with a few athletic brands’ marketing strategies: She wants them to stop hiring models. Using side-by-side photos of Bella Hadid, Kylie Jenner and Olympic gymnast Aly Raisman, Meryl took to her Twitter account on Wednesday and called out Nike and Puma for choosing models to represent their respective brands instead of actual athletes.
Zac Efron literally cried when he got the chance to meet Team USA’s Final Five gymnasts at the Rio Olympics. Now, one of the girls is sharing who has dibs on Zac if he makes good on the pizza date he promised. In a recent interview, Aly Raisman told E! that she knows better than to think of Zac’s promise to get pizza as a chance for a one-on-one date with him. Simone Biles won’t allow it.
“She was not happy that I tweeted to Zac, ‘When are we getting pizza?'” Aly reveals, speaking about Simone. “She has made it clear that Zac is hers, and he’s off limits to everyone else.” Apparently, Simone is fine with a group outing for some pizza, but she’s intent on her own proper date with the actor.
Speaking to Zac, Aly said that she and the girls are looking forward to catching up with him stateside for those pies.
Check out everything Aly had to say about Zac and Simone below.

Zac Efron made dreams come true for the USA women’s gymnastics team. More importantly, Simone Biles’ dreams came true when the actor surprised the Final Five in Rio. The gold medalists spoke with “TODAY” show co-host Hoda Kotb after the individual events when the actor appeared and turned Simone from a calm athlete to a standard issue fangirl.
“They have such heart,” the actor said later when he appeared on the “TODAY” show to talk about the surprise. Tears, kisses and hugs were all shared during the actor’s surprise visit that apparently will continue with Zac and the girls getting pizza.
