Watch These Thirsty Today Show Hosts Rub Oil All Over Tonga’s Olympic Heartthrob

One of the most memorable moments of the Olympic Opening Ceremonies Friday night was the entrance of the flag bearer for the Polynesian kingdom of Tonga.

Taekwondo fighter Pita Nikolas Taufatofua proudly carried Tonga’s flag bare-chested and dressed in nothing but a ta’ovala (Tongan mat) wrapped around his waist and covered with ample amounts of oil. (Watch his entrance here.)

This morning, the thirsty ladies of the TODAY show helped lather plenty of baby oil all over Taufatofua’s body.
