"SNL" star Leslie Jones is heading to the 2018 Winter Olympics with NBC as a contributor. You can catch her as the ultimate "superfan," on TV and digital platforms covering live events, meeting athletes, and sharing her enthusiasm for the games that kick off February 8th in Pyeongchang, South Korea.
As you'll recall, its that enthusiasm that originally caught the attention of the NBC producers. She made her debut as an NBC Olympics contributor at the Rio Summer Games after her witty live tweets of the event gained producer Jim Bell’s attention. He says “experiencing the Olympics through the lens of Leslie is unlike anything else.” He thinks her time in South Korea “should be fascinating.”
