Aly Raisman and Oakland Raiders’ Colton Underwood Are Hooking Up, Social Media-Style
We’ve all been swooning over Simone Biles and her celeb-crush Zac Efron, but it turns out that another US Olympic gymnast might have found potential romance while nabbing her medals. Aly Raisman has obviously been focusing on winning while hanging with her Taylor Swift-worthy #girlsquad, but others were busy watching her every move, including Oakland Raiders’ Colton Underwood.
While being interviewed by Yahoo! Sports, Aly was shown a pre-recorded video of Colton — who not only showed his appreciation of the gymnast’s athletic prowess, but also asked her out on a date. Eee!
Proposing a double date with fellow-gymnast Shawn Johnson and her husband, Andrew East (who also happens to be an Oakland player) Colton’s pickup looks like it was successful. At least, if Aly’s initial reaction (“He’s very cute… I would go on a date with him”) and their following tweets to each other are any indication.
@Colt3FIVE thanks for the sweet video…. looking forward to meeting you :)

“@Colt3FIVE thanks for the sweet video…. looking forward to meeting you :)” Aly tweeted, letting Colton know his crush isn’t unrequited.
Anytime! Looking forward to meeting you too. Safe travels back, see you soon! https://t.co/vWRhhqR5up

Colton seemed just as eager, replying, “Anytime! Looking forward to meeting you too. Safe travels back, see you soon!”
This is a date that definitely needs to happen!
Have you ever been on a double date? Was it a success or a disaster? Tweet us @BritandCo!
