Simone Biles & Sasha Farber Foxtrot Their Way Through 'DWTS' Week 8 - Watch Now!
Simone Biles has been dancing her way to the quarterfinals of ABC's Dancing With The Stars, but it hasn't been easy.
And while she took the criticism (and Bergeron's comments) like a champ, it does still get to her during the judging.
Inaba's critique of Biles performance was largely positive, although she did note that while her emotional connection to the music has improved, she'd still like to see her come out of her shell a bit more.
Boom. Mic drop. Biles is officially queen of the dreaded "You need to smile" comment women hear far too often. "I feel like I am trying, I am being honest, but if they don't see that, I don't know what more I can do", she told ET.
Remember, sharing is caring.
Judge Julianne Hough agreed, adding, "I don't know if the smile is authentic because you want to smile, or if it's just because you rehearsed it that way".
OK. She's smiling too much, got it. Let's try this dance.
Biles' response drew a surprised reaction from the audience.
"I've lived in a gym 14 years of my life, so it's hard to show something I've never felt before", explained Biles.
The athlete has been dancing her ass off in these competitions, but has yet to get a ideal score. That feeling ironically came to head this week, when she was accused of lacking emotion in her dance routines.
"I had tears in my eyes", she said.
Biles' face contorted ever so slightly when she finally said, "Smiling doesn't win you gold medals". "I nearly ran to the bathroom at one point, but I pulled it together".
