Joe Jonas might just have some competition for Olympic gymnast Aly Raisman's affections!

Signing autographs and meeting fans Friday at a Los Angeles Office Depot store, the 18-year-old London Games gold medalist found herself surprised with . . . a marriage proposal. But don't worry, Mr. and Mrs. Raisman, the teen isn't planning on settling down just yet.

"I got proposed to with a [candy] ring pop, so that was interesting and funny," Raisman -- who took home gold as part of Team USA's Fierce Five alongside Kyla Ross, McKayla Maroney, Gabby Douglas and Jordyn Wieber -- told Us Weekly at Friday's event.

Though Raisman nixed her fan's proposal, she still got the 'bling.' "He got down on one knee and then Harry, my manager, was like 'she's too get married!'" the gymnast continues. "I still took the ring pop and I gave him a picture."

Massachusetts native Raisman has no doubt had a wild ride since she and her teammates returned to the States after the Games. In addition to being feted by Us Weekly staffers in New York City, the Fierce Five rang the New York Stock Exchange Bell, hobnobbed with the likes of Gossip Girl's Chace Crawford, and, on Thursday, Raisman filmed an episode of E!'s Fashion Police with Joan Rivers.

"I didn't realize how many people watched the Olympics!" Raisman admits. "It's really exciting because a lot of hard work and dedication went into this. It feels nice that people know who I am."
