‘SNL’ Cast React To Viral TikToker Who Claims Show Has “Never Hired A Hot Woman”

The women of Saturday Night Live are commenting on a viral TikTok video that claims the NBC sketch show has “never hired a hot woman.”

“Am I the only person who’s ever noticed that SNL has never hired a, like, hot woman?” the TikTok creator, who goes by the name of Jahelis, said. “And I want to be clear, I’m not saying that every single woman who has been a cast member of SNL is ugly, it’s just that none of them have ever been like, hot… They all just kind of have looks that eventually grow on you.”

The video got the attention of current SNL cast member Sarah Sherman, who reshared it on X (formerly Twitter) and added, “I just found out I’m not hot. Please give me and my family space to grieve privately and uglily at this time.”

Chloe Troast reshared the video on Instagram and stitched it as she sang Christina Aguilera’s “Beautiful” while she doubly flipped-off the TikTok creator.

The TikTok creator used Heidi Gardner as an example of the moment that “really settled in for me when they hired” her making her play “someone super hot and super dumb.”

“And the point of the joke is that she’s super pretty,” she added. “And it always makes me laugh, because like, no offense to her, but she’s she’s not that pretty like that.”

After the video got the media’s attention, the creator released a statement, which she read off on a subsequent video.

“I never expected that video to go viral,” the viral content creator read. “Had I known, I would’ve maybe articulated myself a little bit better. I was expecting to have a dialogue with my community, who is used to my unfiltered opinions that rarely come from a place of malice.”

She continued, “In return for being brave enough to share a peek into what is the magical, colorful wonderland that I call my mind, I have received comments calling me ugly, fat, a trunk full of racially charged insults, etc… You know what they say: No good deed goes unpunished!”

In the original video, the TikTok creator cited the likes of Jimmy Fallon, Andy Samberg, Jason Sudeikis and “even Bowen [Yang]” as “relatively hot men.” She also said that former cast member Maya Rudolph “is really beautiful.”
