Saturday Night Live opened the first episode of 2023 with an NFL post-game show. But the real star is Fox’s newest sideline reporter: Bowen Yang as Congressman George Santos.
Jimmy Johnson of James Austin Johnson said: “Now, first of all, congratulations to George on a wonderful career. “I didn’t even know you played football, but I see here you are the first player to lead the league in passing speed and speed.”
“That’s right,” Santos replied. “I’m almost the real Bo Jackson. And I’m proud to be the first African-American quarterback to ever pitch.” After taking credit for the Philadelphia Eagles’ 38-7 win over the New York Giants, he’s sure to tell viewers he’s definitely “not do scissors in Brazil under the name Kitara Ravache.” But “despite that, whoever did it was very, very good and won a lot of beauty pageants.”
Moments later, Yang reappeared, this time with full force. “I’m not George, I’m Kitara Ravache!” he announced before sharing his “real stats,” which included “tweaked infinity wigs” and “awards for the tightest.”
“I have now rewritten Fox’s football anthem, which I was allowed to do because my mother passed away twice on 9/11!” he concluded before delivering a connotative “direct from New York, it’s Saturday night!”
Meanwhile, earlier on Saturday, George Santos actually seemed to retract his original drag queen rejection, tell TMZ“I was young and I had fun at a festival.”
