People hug to greet. Yes we have those few who go through this charade and the hug is a travesty for love. And there are the ones where they hug to hurt, kill or defeat the other.
When I saw this moment, I was pleased to think that love is in the air. Indeed it was but it was not between these two gentleman as this awesome hug was to get one of them out of the way so that the winning boy can wed the lady lizard watching the show from a distance!!!!!
It teaches us all that we should not believe all that we see!!!
