Pita Taufatofua, the shirtless Olympic athlete from Tonga, is back at the Olympic Games.

You’ll recall he became an overnight sensation at the 2016 Rio Games when he appeared in the opening ceremony’s Parade of Nations in a traditional (shirtless) Tongan costume. Even though he lost his first taekwondo match, he was one of the most memorable athletes to emerge from the games.

Two years later, he competed at the 2018 Winter Games in Pyeongchang, South Korea. He was the only member of Team Tonga at the event where he competed in cross-country skiing. He is only the second Tongan to ever compete in a Winter Olympics. Luger Bruno Banani was the first in 2014.

Taufatofua will compete in his original sport of taekwondo at his 3rd Olympic Games in Tokyo.

His worldwide acclaim has led him to become a motivational speaker and a UNICEF ambassador working with homeless charities.

The Twitterverse was thrilled to see the handsome athlete return.

The idea of bungee jumping has always seemed like both a supreme adrenaline rush and scary AF at the same time.

But what if taking that ride meant being in the middle of an Efron brothers sandwich?

Where do I sign up?

Zac Efron and equally hunky bro Dylan, currently down under in Australia, shared a couple of GoPro videos capturing their shirtless duo BJ (bungee jump) for Brothers Day, and its definitely worth the watching.

You may ask, “Why are they shirtless?” Answer: who cares?

As actress Jessica Alba says in the comments, “So many abs – so little time…”

Maluma Got Hot Working Out, So He Took Off His Shirt

Woofy Colombian recording star Maluma brought the heat to his Instagram yesterday when he threw down a video showing off his arm workout and more.

Grinding out his final bicep curls, the blond 27-year-old was serving up sweat and abs. And let’s face it, Colombia can get preeeeety humid, so ditching the shirt was a good move (especially for his fans).

The short clip has garnered over 3.5 million views in less than a day.

Prior to the gym clip, the “Medellín” singer shared another shirtless snap as he relaxed on a lounger in the sun.

But this is hardly the first time Maluma has caught our eye. The singer has become an accomplished thirst trap on his Insta. Let’s face it – the guy knows how to smolder for the camera.

The Latin Grammy Award-winner recently released an EP titled #7DJ (7 Días en Jamaica) in January featuring seven songs along with their music videos on his YouTube channel.

Woofy Dancer’s Search For Room To Rent Becomes Viral Thirst Trap

Saverio Pescucci’s search for a room to rent in New York City went viral after he attached a few photos to his search ad.

A professional dancer by trade, Pescucci posted his search in the 284,800-member Gypsy Housing group on Facebook.

Describing himself as “super chill, friendly, gay, [and] Covid responsible,” Pescucci included the photos so people could put a face to the ad.

“I saw a lot of people … were posting pictures of themselves, like selfies and casual photos, to show that they’re not sociopaths or what kind of lifestyle they have,” the 29-year-old told the New York Post. “I did the same [but] I was not imagining that it would turn into an episode of ‘The Bachelor.’ “

Pescucci says the pics were a general assortment of vacation selfies and photos of him dancing.

To his surprise, the ad went viral garnering over 600 Likes and 400+ responses.

It’s pretty easy to see why the native of Tuscany, Italy, got such a reaction.

One woman commented on Pescucci’s ad writing, “[The] hot ones are never straight.”

Another couldn’t resist chiming in with “You’re cute … that’s all I have to offer you. A compliment.”

Gay men were a bit more to the point (as gay men can be don’t you know…)

“You won’t be paying rent for too long once you get here … [you’re] f–king hot.”

“I don’t have a room but I am single,” wrote Hassan Salazar, a drag performer who resides in Queens. Getting straight to the point, Salazar just put it all out there saying, “I’m just here to snatch myself a good man. He can have my apartment lol.”

Salazar told The Post that he liked that Pescucci is a dancer, and his eyebrows – he really liked his eyebrows.

“I’m going to consider my marriage proposal as pending,” added Salazar.

Pescucci told The Post that he didn’t intend for the ad to be “a thirst trap.” And while he wasn’t “uncomfortable” with the comments, he admits to being “really overwhelmed” by the responses.

He tried to respond to the comments individually but finally gave up by addressing everyone on the post.

“Omg, just waking up and what is happening on this post!?!??,” he wrote. “I just wanted a room!!!!”

He also thanked his new admirers “for all the sweet and kind words” and promised to read all of the comments as soon as he gets a chance.

Originally trained at Milan’s prestigious La Scala ballet academy, Saverio Pescucci has danced around the world with elite companies like the Dance Theatre of Harlem and the Finnish National Ballet. In 2017, he made his Broadway debut in The Phantom of the Opera.

Unemployed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, he’s hung up his dance shoes for a while and will begin a new gig working at an Italian food distributor.

And yes – the housing search was successful. Our furry hero did find a room to rent.
