Simone Biles must be fearless enough to be the greatest gymnast of all time. But she admits there are a lot of things she hasn’t tried and things she’s afraid of in life.

The Houston-raised 25-year-old is challenging herself in a 10-episode original series, “Daring Simone Biles,” which premiered Sunday, August 20 on Snapchat.

The series chronicles her adventures as she jumps out of her comfort zone to try new things such as beekeeping, DJing, and even competing with her Houston Texans fiancé, safety Jonathan Owens.

By the way, she is terrified of bees and recounts her encounter with a bee during the world championships in 2014.

“Life’s most incredible journeys begin when you dare to experience something new,” she says in the show’s trailer.

Episodes air every other day until September 7 exclusively on Snapchat.
