'Everyone else won't look as good as me, will they?'

Kim Kardashian on SNL? No, it's not a joke: the reality TV queen and SKIMS founder is gearing up to take the stage with comedy's biggest players, and viewers aren't entirely sure what to expect from her hosting gig. 

Ahead of the October 9 show, SNL released a somewhat self-deprecating teaser poking fun at the 40-year-old's inexperience in the comedy world, but we have to admit, she kept up.

"So Kim, are you nervous about doing sketch comedy," Cecily Strong jokes. 

"No why, I don't have to write sketches do I?" Kim responds. 


"Memorize lines?"

"No, there are cue cards," musical guest Halsey interjects. 

"Everyone else won't look as good as me, will they," Kim asks. 

"No," Cecily and Halsey respond in unison. 

Could it be that the joke's on all of us? If you're curious to see how it all unfolds, park a seat on the couch (wearing a SKIMS Velour number of course), and see what KKW has up her sleeve.

Kim Kardashian on SNL—prepping for the gig

According to TMZ (opens in new tab), Kim had some assistance from the pros on delivering lines and performing particular skits. If this is in fact the case, Amy Schumer, James Corden, Michelle Wolf are among the roster of comedians who decided to lend a helping hand. And a few controversial pros, including Dave Chapelle and Ellen DeGeneres, also gave a few words of wisdom. 

TMZ also reports that KKW has been receptive to all of the team's ideas, even the ones that might potentially poke fun at her and her family in the process. (Met Gala 2021 memes are comin' your way, guaranteed.)

Judging from the reality star's Instagram page, fans have been given a sneak peek, and her time on the show is likely going to be just as glamorous as one would expect. A bedazzled getup? Gloves? SNL is pulling out all the stops for reality TV royalty. 

Time is ticking until KKW is live from New York. Will you be watching?
