All the best bits from Jacob Elordi hosting SNLNBC

Man of the moment, Jacob Elordi, is booked and busy. From starring in Saltburn and Priscilla, to replacing Andrew Garfield as Frankenstein in Guillermo Del Toro's upcoming adaptation of the classic story. And this weekend he just hosted the latest episode of American sketch comedy show Saturday Night Live. As expected, there were plenty of unmissable moments.

Keep reading to see some of our favourites…

The Australian actor kicked off the night with an opening monologue by acknowledging that many will know him from the movie that everyone is talking about; Saltburn. He began by saying, “you might know me from Saltburn. Not from seeing the film, just from seeing the TikToks,” with it cutting to one of the most infamous scenes in the movie, involving his co-star, Barry Keoghan and a grave.

He added: “I was the one in the grave. If you saw the movie, thank you. If you saw the movie with your parents, I’m sorry. If you saw the movie with your girlfriend, you’re welcome.”

Jacob also touched upon his breakout role in Netflix’s The Kissing Booth and how Lilo & Stitch helped him get into the role of Elvis Presley for Priscilla.

There were plenty of great skits too. Some of our favourites include the 'Alaska Airlines Ad', where the airline promises to make amends after a panel was torn from the side of one of their planes mid flight, earlier this month.

While his dating life has been getting a lot of discussion this week, two scenes were dedicated to a reality dating show 'Crown Your Short King' and a wedding interrupted by Bowen Yang’s Garrett from Hinge character.

We also loved seeing Jacob attend an acting class with fellow actor Rachel McAdams, plus a women’s AA meeting. He even attempted some professional lip reading in another skit.

Mean GirlsReneé Rapp was also this week's musical performer, with her singing her song 'Snow Angel'. She then joined Megan Thee Stallion for 'Not My Fault', from the Mean Girls soundtrack.

Saturday Night Live is available to stream on NOW, or watch clips from Jacob’s episode on the SNL YouTube channel.
