Tongan Flag Bearer at 2018 Winter Olympics Pictures

It's -700 Degrees at the Olympics, but Tonga's Flag Bearer Gave No F*cks and Went Shirtless

Tongan Flag Bearer at 2018 Winter Olympics Pictures

This just in: the snow in Pyeongchang, South Korea, rapidly melted away and temperatures mysteriously skyrocketed during the 2018 Winter Olympics opening ceremony. The source wasn't global warming — it was none other than Pita Taufatofua and his oiled-up abs.

The Tongan flag bearer, who went viral at the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio for putting his ridiculously shredded body on display, is at it again in South Korea, truly giving the people what they want. Back in Rio, he competed in taekwondo, and the drop-dead-sexy athlete will be partaking in cross-country skiing in the Winter Games. The jury's still out on whether he'll show up to the slopes shirtless or fully clothed . . .

Needless to say, when Pita rolled up to the opening ceremony wearing nothing but a black and red grass skirt and a copious amount of massage oil, we just about passed out into a puddle of our own drool. He blatantly disregarded the exceptionally freezing weather in Pyeongchang to remind us that he does, in fact, have an insanely bangin' bod, and for that, we truly thank him.

In case you don't have time to tune into the opening ceremony, we did our due diligence and gathered every sweat-inducing snap of Pita in action. Don't blame us if your device spontaneously combusts while scrolling through the pictures ahead. Someone pass me the smelling salts.
