Ice skating has always been a fan favorite for Winter Olympic viewers, but this year there is an extra bonus: the commentary of previous Olympians Johnny Weir and Tara Lipinski. Not only are the two dressing as sparkly fabulous twinsies, but they are throwing some mighty icy shade.
Some people love it:
Johnny is too fabulous. Only he could wear a jacket like that and get away with it. Love it.— Christopher Hoven (@NorseNova) February 9, 2018
Others felt the commentary was a bit too harsh:
#Olympics So annoyed with these team ice skating commentators Tara Lipinski and Johnny Weir. A moment ago they were praising Nathan Chen as if he were a God and he makes a mistake (he is human) and now they are crucifying him. Opening ceremonies haven't even happened yet.— Dawn (@DawnGrpntblank) February 9, 2018
For many folks, The Hunger Games kept coming to mind:
But the games don't end there. Weir and Lipinski have also started a podcast:
Fans can't get enough of the dynamic bedazzled duo:
I will always, always need more Johnny Weir and Tara Lipinski in my life. They need to do commentary beyond the Olympics because waiting between Olympics for them is too long!— Meghan McCain (@MeghanMcCain) February 9, 2018
Please put Johnny Weir and Tara Lipinski on every television show— 🇺🇸 OLYMPIC TEAM LIKER (@kevinmccauley) February 9, 2018
It's not enough for these spandex-clad greats to broadcast ice skating. People want more!

Personally, we would like to see them moderate the next Presidential debate. Sequins don't lie.
