The 2018 Winter Olympics have arrived and the spotlight isn't only on the athletes.
The world is keeping a close eye on the skills, performance, and fashion of announcers, too, and on day one of competitions when people wanted a hot new Olympics meme Johnny Weir and Tara Lipinski volunteered as tribute.
The professional figured skaters showed up looking like announcers for The Hunger Games and Twitter was shook.
The two got their hair did and busted out their best maroon sequins numbers for the big night. It was straight up Caesar Flickerman and Effie Trinket in that arena.

All I know is she was an incredibly pretty performer and as a young woman she is even more ravishing. I chat stop looking at her when she’s on.8Io
Tara and Johnny have always done that shtick.
That is funny!
Mere days into this round of the Olympics and I am worn slick with the Parade of the Overly-Flamboyant Froot Loops on Ice.
There HAS to be an Obama joke in there somewhere........
Call me a hopeless romantic but I always thought they should have married each other.
She’s married now but getting married to her instead of a man would have been so much better for Johnny. He and his “husband” had a violent breakup recently.
Actually, it looks like Johnny has ‘straightened up’ his act a little bit since we saw him at the last Winter Olympics. :=)
They’re probably saving a bit of money as well by eliminating the crewmember standing by with a fire extinguisher.
They left the “d” off of “weird”
Ol’ Johnny is giving off some serious gay vibes, as usual. Stanley Tucci did a great job with that character, as usual.
I remember her competing. She was only a child but she had what my old football coach used to repeat over and over.
“Backbone, grit and determination.”
I’m surprised they don’t have same-sex ice dancing, etc. Yet.
It’s true that they both look as though weird things have happened to their faces.
The way the world is turning, give it time.
No wai! The pravda says that same-sex marriages are much better than normal ones.
What a fuddle, what a fuddle ...
Thats very important news about Jonnys family life. Millions cant wait to hear them, especially readers of FreeRepublic!
I cant stand that Johnny Weir. Weird is more like it.
Really funny. Personally I can do without Johnny Weir.
There was a guy named Lipinski in my unit. He was a real odd duck. I wonder if they’re related.
