Johnny Weir loved those “Hunger Games” memes during the Olympics just as much as everyone else. Before the Sochi Olympics , I was trying to think of great hosts that I joke memes, and Caesar Flickerman was the only one that I could keep in my head,” Weir told us.

It took four years for America to catch on, but it’s not new to me. Why do Tara Lapinski and Johnny Weir look like they’re the announcing the 76th Hunger Games?

And, as a former professional athlete used to putting in the hard work, Weir said that it wasn’t easy for him to let himself go with the “easy” way out.
