Well, Leslie Jones has done it. She’s gotten herself a sports commentary job… and she’s doing it with Adam Rippon too?!
It seems the Saturday Night Live/Ghostbusters comedian is a big fan of Olympic sports (specifically, figure skating). Her entire Twitter feed is full of her comedic Olympic commentary.
As such, it’s only natural that NBC decided to have her over to do a special commentary gig. And who should decide to join her? None other than Olympian Adam Rippon.
While Rippon rejected NBC’s offer to spend the rest of the 2018 Winter Olympics commentating for them, he did decide to pop in and give it a one-time try.
Along with Scott Hamilton, Jones and Rippon commentated on Canadian ice skating pair Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir.
Partway through the performance, Jones asked, “Are they getting in trouble for how sexy they are?”
In reference to Virtue, Rippon said, “I watch her, and sometimes I feel like I can feel my hair growing!”
"What's that like?" quipped Scott after that.
Jones then said, “She just makes me feel like a woman.”
“I get that," responded Rippon.
