She proceeded to share her excitement about her emcee duties, explaining: “I am single and I’ve heard that SNL is a great place to find romance.

“Emma Stone met her husband here, Scarlett Johannson and Colin Jost, Pete and Machine Gun Kelly,” she continued. “And since I really don’t want to try the dating apps, I just want to put it out in the universe that I am manifesting love.

“And I would like to say that I’m looking for my soulmate, but at this point, I will take anyone,” she joked.

Soon after, SNL star Kyle Mooney offered himself, saying: “I’ll do it,” with Gomez firmly rejecting him.
