Yesterday on the Ellen DeGeneres show, she premiered her season 14 opener that included Mr. Magic Mike, Channing Tatum and Simone Biles along with a few other guests
During his interview with Ellen, Tatum admitted that he was one of the Olympic gold medalist’s mega fans.
Tatum said, “I did not meet her back there yet. No, but I want to, I’m going to freak out.” He insisted to Ellen that he was going to freak out more then Simone would do when she got to meet Tatum.

Tatum and Ellen went back and forth about who would freak out more… and he eventually admitted that he was going to “geek out” when he met her.
The interviews goes to Simone and Ellen and Ellen is asking Simone, “So, you’re a Magic Mike fan and have you met Channing yet? Did you meet him backstage?”
Simone says, “No, I haven’t met him yet.”
Ellen being Ellen says, “He’s excited to meet you too. He may ask you something about your toes, you just ignore it.”
Ellen tells Simone, “We got your something because you have so many medals, you have to have a chase, you have to have someplace to hold them” and appears appears Channing Tatum holding four of Simone’s five medals.
It’s funny because in the video’s sound byte, you hear Simone walking up to Channing Tatum saying, “Thank you.”
Check out the vid and see how humble Simone is when she gets to meet Channing Tatum.
