One of the newest members of the TODAY family, Willie Geist had us cracking up in 2013, whether he was testing out a special lip balm by kissing Al Roker or tearing off a T-shirt like Hulk Hogan. 

Here are five of Willie's most memorable moments, as well as a look back at his first year on the job at TODAY (we've compiled 2013's most hilarious highlights for Matt, Savannah, Natalie and Al, too). He cursed (accidentally), we laughed, and despite a valiant effort, he didn't exactly get "digin" into the dictionary. Maybe next year!

Video: TODAY’s Willie Geist and Natalie Morales chat about new words that could be candidates for including in the Oxford English Dictionary, such as “legsie” (a leg selfie) and “appisode” (a TV show you want on an app). They also start a campaign for the word “digin,” which means using social media.
