Why Kim Kardashian? 我的意思是, I know she is a cultural icon, but SNL has hosts, generally, who are performers who are there to promote a film, TV show, or album launch,” 她写了. “Am I missing something?”


Messing isn’t far off in that Kim’s lack of a current project makes her stand out among the other three who were announced to host “SNL” 季节 47. Wilson will star in the upcoming filmThe French Dispatchand Malek will be seen next as a villain in the highly anticipated 占士邦 电影 “No Time To Die,” which drops in October.

Kim’s biggest TV claim to fame at the moment was wrapping up her long-running E! reality showKeeping Up With The Kardashians” 在六月. 然而, that doesn’t mean she doesn’t have anything in the pipeline.

在十二月, it was announced that Kim and her sisters Khloe, 考特尼, Kendall and Kylie inked a deal with Hulu that will see them create global content that will stream exclusively on the platform in the U.S.

当时, the first of these shows was expected to debut in late 2021, but there has been no specific announcement on the matter since. Perhaps reality TV’s first family will have something to announce before Kim takes the “周六夜现场” stage on Oct. 9.
