SNL's Best Athlete Hosts

Will Ronda Rousey join this list after hosting 'Saturday Night Live' this weekend?

Here’s a surprising fact: When Ronda Rousey hosts Saturday Night Live this weekend, she’ll be only the third female athlete to do so. The other two were tennis star Chris Everett and ice skater Nancy Kerrigan. Even though the hosting duties by a female athlete are long overdue, there’s been no shortage of athletes in general to pass through Studio 8H. Pros who’ve played with the Not Ready For Primetime Players include everyone from elite athletes like Tom Brady to legends such as Derek Jeter and Wayne Gretzky. Some were good at showing off their comedy chops, others…were not. Below, we take a look at the top five (in our opinion) athlete hosts of SNL. Will Rousey crack the top of the list? We’ll see how the UFC star fares after Saturday night.
