Adriana Lima is heading to the Olympics

NBC has hired the 35-year-old Brazilian model and her compatriot and fellow Victoria’s Secret Angel Alessandra Ambrosio to appear on the network’s late-night coverage of the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio.

Lima and Ambrosio will appear primarily on Ryan Seacrest‘s after-hours show, which will be largely human-interest and entertainment based.

The bombshells will serve as NBC’s food and culture correspondents for the 2016 Rio Games.

“Adriana and Alessandra are the perfect ambassadors to guide viewers through the celebrations taking place outside of the competition, showcasing the off the field experience for Olympic fans,” said NBC Olympics executive producer Jim Bell in a press release.

Olympics coverage typically straddles the line between sports news and entertainment, with the expansion into the celebrity space coming into play to appeal to a broader audience beyond traditional sports fans, as well as fill 6,755 hours of coverage.
