China Holds Torch For Flame Bearer

China loves a man with a flame:

A handsome but anonymous guardian of the Olympics torch on its troubled world tour has won legions of Chinese female fans — and plenty of marriage proposals.

Known only as “Second Brother on the Right” because of his customary position by the flame, the young man with boyish looks and cropped hair is an Internet sensation and nationalist hero.

“We love him not only because he is so handsome but because he represents the pride of China,” one female blogger wrote.

North Korean premiere Kim Jong-il is said to be insanely jealous.
