Aly Raisman & Colton Underwood Agree to a Date
Underwood asked Raisman on a date via video during a Yahoo! Sports segment about what the star gymnast is looking for in a boyfriend.[su_row][su_column size=”1/4″]

She also mentions Zac Efron, who she and her fellow Team USA gymnasts met during the Games, is off limits.
‘That’s Simone’s (Biles) guy. She’s made it clear to me many times that he’s off limits for any of the other girls out there,’ she says in the video.
She also says in the clip she would prefer someone who is athletic because then she can work out with her potential partner.
Raisman is good friends with 24-year-old gymnast Shawn Johnson, who is married to 24-year-old Raiders long snapper Andrew East and plays with Underwood.
He finishes the video saying: ‘You know if you’re ever in San Jose and want to go on a double date with me, Andrew and Shawn, let me know.’
In the video Raisman admits she finds Underwood cute as she hands the phone back to someone off camera.
On Sunday, Raisman accepted his proposal and tweeted:
‘Thanks for the sweet video…. looking forward to meeting you.’
He replied: ‘Anytime! Looking forward to meeting you too. Safe travels back, see you soon!’
