The talk show host Halloween costume contest is officially on!

And we may have an early tie between Matt Lauer and Ellen DeGeneres -- who dressed as Pam Anderson and Nicki Minaj, respectively.

Yep, you heard that correctly. Matt Lauer DRESSED IN DRAG ... again!

Sporting the actress' famous "Baywatch" swimsuit and fake boobs, Lauer even had the slow-mo run down as he ran across the plaza with Willie Geist as David Hasselhoff and one of the show's actual stars, Carmen Electra.

Of course, this isn't Matt's first time dressing as a woman. He's also been Jennifer Lopez and Paris Hilton on the show in the past.

He wasn't the only one wearing a fake chest this year either.

Ellen DeGeneres donned one too to play Nicki Minaj, as she hosted her show today wearing an outfit Nicki herself wore earlier this year on her show.

Between this outfit and the one she wore last year as Sofia Vergara, it's clear Ellen loves a revealing full-body transformation!

As for the rest of the talk shows, both "Today" and "Good Morning America" put on pretty impressive displays. We're LOVING Al Roker as Mr. T -- and "GMA" had Miley Cyrus, Sharknado and even Joffrey from "Game of Thrones."

Over on "The Chew," the hosts all wore Spice Girls get ups. Trust us when we say that Mario Batali makes one very scary Ginger Spice.

See those and more in the gallery above. We'll update with new photos from all the morning shows as they come in!
