Simone Biles Inspired Other People To Do This New Version Of The Handstand Challenge
Naturally, when a four-time Olympic gold medalist with a huge following does something, fans want to try it out too. People replied to Biles’ video with their own attempts at doing the handstand challenge while taking their sweatpants off. It is a fun way to see people’s hidden talents and athletic ability even when we’re all couped up at home.
One Twitter user replied to Biles’ video and wrote: “My daughter loves you and took your challenge.” And she absolutely killed the challenge and took the sweatpants off in less than 20 seconds.
One woman even attempted the challenge while she is six months pregnant. She was able to free one of her pants legs before falling out of her handstand. However, we are still impressed by her effort.
‘Spiderman’ Star Tom Holland Started The Handstand Challenge
Tom Holland is known for being quite flexible and acrobatic. He trained in dance and gymnastics when he was a little kid. He was the first celebrity to join the handstand challenge. He showed off his fit body while he attempted to do a handstand against the wall while putting on a shirt. He then nominated fellow Marvel actors Jake Gyllenhaal and Ryan Reynolds to take part in the challenge.
Gyllenhaal then attempted the challenge. He was sporting a man bun and he honestly made the challenge look easy and effortless. He then nominated his sister Maggie, Marvel actor Hugh Jackman and rapper 50 Cent.
Olympian Lolo Jones also decided to take the challenge and enjoyed a glass of wine beforehand. She jokingly thanked both Holland and Gyllenhaal for doing the challenge shirtless because she hasn’t “seen a man in 25 days.” Honestly, we feel the exact same way.
Ryan Reynolds Had Hilarious Response To Being Nominated For This Challenge
Not every celebrity is on board to take part in this difficult challenge. Reynolds is definitely not on board. He posted the following video simply saying “no.” Although he did some crazy scenes in the Deadpool movies it seems like the handstand challenge is where he draws the line.
Comments on the video thought it was pretty funny that Reynolds was so adamant about saying no. “His reaction is better than him actually doing the challenge,” said one YouTube comment. Reynolds also tweeted Biles and simply said “Noo.” You have to love Reynolds for making his fans laugh during a time where we need it most. And all of the celebrities who are providing videos and content for their fans really give us something to smile about.
