Despite no shortage of seriously stiff competition, Pita Nikolas Aufatofua of Tonga is being roundly hailed as the heartthrob of the Olympics. Nevertheless, that’s really no reason for Today Show host Al Roker to sic news anchor Hoda Kotb and (urk!) Jenna friggin’ Bush on the 32-year-old taekwondo fighter.

Both women take it upon themselves to languidly smooth baby lotion all over his pecs in a 51 second clip that seems to drag on for a cringe-inducing eternity as Aufatofua achieves otherworldly levels of glistening sheen. Only slightly terrifyingly, the girls subsequently wipe any residual lotion onto their own arms, perhaps hoping his vital essence will rub off on them/absorb into them.

Meanwhile, Aufatofua tries to be the perfect gentleman, flashing the most athletically awkward frozen smile this side of Jack Nicholson at the end of The Shining.
