"Live Every Day Like You're Johnny Weir"

Johnny during his appearance on Hollywood Game Night, 
for which he garnered lots of praise on 
social media for his performance, his outfit—
particularly his shorts—and his legs.

Kayso Hollywood Game Night was the kind of awesome that reminds me all over again why I loved Be Good Johnny Weir so much, and why the world needs a lot more Johnny on TV. (Or in the movies. Or on a 24-hour webcam that follows him everywhere. Whatever. I’m not picky.)

But you don’t have to take my word for it. Here’s just a brief sample of what everybody else said. I love all these comments.

This is my most favorite. IDK if this person was even watching the show or not. Nor does it matter.

More pics here!

Team Evan! (Seriously? Yep.) Johnny, Wynonna Judd, 
Krysten Ritter, and contestant Evan. On the show, Evan 
is playing to win $25,000, and each celeb is playing to win 
$25,000 for the charity of their choice.

Watching Team Amy struggle to spell out 
a movie title with their blocks.

Team Evan not having much luck either...

Playing Clue-Boom!

Selfie with Evan.

A Ridiculous Amount 
of Screencaps!

Because how often do we get a whole hour of Johnny on TV!
 Let’s make the most of it, shall we?

Dancing during the opening credits. 
Nope, he never spilled his drink.

Applause for host Jane Lynch.

Jane introduces Johnny first among the celebrities: 
“US national champion figure skater 
and Olympic broadcaster... 

...the graceful Master of the Ice...

...Johnny Weir!”

Team Evan getting ready to spell out their first title.

Social media loved how Johnny struck a pose 
with his block each time.

Hurrying to get in the right order!

Preparing for Clue-Boom!

Johnny is helpless with laughter that teammate 
Krysten Ritter shouted that the annual baseball 
championship is called the Super Bowl.

Johnny’s turn to face the Clue-Boom bowl, 
which explodes randomly during each round.

And no one looks better facing it down than he does.

Giving clues to his team.

Shoving the bowl toward opponent Nick Swardson 
and hoping it explodes on him!

But the bowl explodes on Johnny! 
Who has the least over-the-top reaction of anyone.

“You’ve been Clue-Boomed!” Jane says... a distraught Johnny. 
(No, no, he’s acting!)

See? He’s fine!

Let’s just take a moment to totally forget 
what they’re doing and appreciate how lovely he looks...

...while Johnny has a shoe moment with Wynonna.

Playing “Back to Back,” in which celebs are handcuffed 
while acting out clues for their teammates. 
During this round, every answer begins with “h.”

Johnny uses his body to illustrate “hunchback”....

...and “hopscotch.” 
Evan guesses both first before Amy, 
so Team Evan gets the points! 

He looks amazing...

...and he’s having so much fun!

He’s yelling the song title “Since U Been Gone” 
to Team Amy, who ran out of time to guess correctly.

Sadly, Team Amy beats Team Evan 
to compete in the bonus round. Amy chooses Scott Foley 
to be her partner for the bonus round, and Johnny joins 
the rest of Team Amy on the floor by their sofa.

Watching the final round 
with his spirit animal Leah Remini.
