Simone Biles’ husband, Jonathan Owens, thinks he’s more of a catch than the 4-time Olympic champion

Simone Biles’ husband, Jonathan Owens, said he is more of a catch than his Olympian wife, who is the most decorated gymnast of all time.

The Green Bay Packers player, 28, is catching heat for comments he recently made about how he “pulled” his wife, 26, during the couple’s guest appearance on the “Pivot” podcast.

Owens admitted he “didn’t know who” Biles was in 2020 when they first matched on the private dating app Raya.

“I’m like, ‘Lemme see who this is.’ I never really paid attention to gymnastics, so it piqued my curiosity,” he said.

“The first thing that I saw was that she just had a bunch of [Instagram] followers. So in my mind, I’m like, ‘OK, she’s gotta be good.’”

Owens said he and Biles started “texting back and forth” before finally coming face to face three days later.

“We couldn’t do much because COVID happened and everything was shut down,” the safety, who was playing for the Houston Texans at the time, recalled.

“So, she came down to Houston. She lived in the suburbs, so she had to drive about 45 minutes. Then the rest is history.”

When the NFL star was asked whether he believed he was the “catch” in his relationship with the gymnast, he replied, “I always say that the men are the catch.”

Fans were not happy with Owens’ “embarrassing” comments about his superstar wife.
