SNL Sets Ronda Rousey to Host With Selena Gomez
SNL already had our vote with the announcement that Girls and Star Wars star Adam Driver would kick off 2016, and the year’s second host is just as strong a knockout. Ronda Rousey herself will take the SNL stage in late January, joined by Selena Gomez, while Driver’s musical guest has been revealed as well.
The Furious 7 star and UFC fighter will be crowned SNL host on January 23, Gomez similarly making her debut on the long-running NBC sketch comedy series. In the meantime, next weekend will see Adam Driver also making his hosting debut on January 16, now revealed to be accompanied by country singer Chris Stapleton.
Apart from her burgeoning movie career, Rousey has been somewhat absent the public eye of late, following the former women’s bantamweight champion’s surprise defeat at the hands (and feet) of fighter Holly Holm. The January 23 hosting debut will mark her first major public appearance since, save a few Instagram posts and events.
2016 is already off to a strong start for SNL, but who next might take Studio 8H, after Adam Driver, Chris Stapleton, Ronda Rousey and Selena Gomez? In the meantime, check out the Top SNL Sketches of 2015, and count down the days until SNL returns.
