SHADE! Simone Biles, 20, has been doing a stellar job week after week on season 24 of Dancing with the Stars, but the Olympic gold medalist was criticized pretty harshly by the judges on the May 8 episode for not smiling enough and boy did she have the flawless response.
The Olympic champion gymnast stood tight-lipped while receiving feedback from judge Carrie Ann Inaba following her performance on Monday night's edition of "Dancing with the Stars". So when host Tom Bergeron said he was shocked that she didn't smile when she was occasionally complimented by one of the judges, she had to politely get him together.
'You don't know which wild card of sexy or of happy they want to bring, and you nearly have to read their minds and find it, ' she said.
"Smiling doesn't win you gold medals". So the judges felt Simone's moves were too flawless and robotic rather than authentic. Oh Simone Biles you savage.
Simone also revealed that while she appeared tight-lipped while taking the judges criticism she had tears in her eyes, and she nearly had to run to the bathroom before she "pulled it together". Besides, she smiled at the appropriate times.

One user wrote: "Time for her to leave and let Scotland prosper in a strong union". She added: "Let's take the Tory argument at face value".
Biles' response drew a surprised reaction from the audience.
"I had tears in my eyes". "I think they were pretty tough on everybody so I can't say, you know, I don't know", Simone said.
"Standing there getting those scores I know exactly how Simone is, she's only 20 years old, and to hear all those things, I could feel her heart just hurting".
Still, Biles admitted after the show to Entertainment Tonight that she is still struggling with connecting to the judges.
Bruno Tonioli agreed, telling her: 'You hit everything with such a ruthless efficiency and because of that at times we lose artistry'.
