Led by Lizzo, Game Show attendees turn on the host

Lizzo was host and musical guest for Saturday night live this week and brought us a really hilarious episode. In a sketch titled “Trivia Game Show,” contestants are asked relatively easy trivia questions for money, but that still doesn’t sit well with Nicole (Lizzo) and she wins the rest of the contestants over to her side.

Tracy (I Nwodim) has already answered a question correctly and Kenny (Chris Red) Nicole even offers to give some of his money to keep the game going, but Nicole makes some pretty good points: Some of these shows just want you to lose, so what’s the point of even playing?

Lizzo’s Nicole is hilarious in that she not knows the answer, but is close enough to the correct answer that she thinks the host, Clint (Kenan Thompson) should give her the money anyway. Like saying there is a “Robert Kennedy” airport and she was there when she actually meant John F. Kennedy Airport in New York.

The sketch is a fairly basic game show format for Saturday night live but what’s interesting here is that it’s completely flipped on Thompson. Typically, it’s the game show itself that attacks its contestants, or the host is upset because nobody knows the answers. In this case, Tracy and Kenny know the answers, but Nicole just gets them on their side so they hit on Clint and take over the show for themselves.

When Clint tells them all to stop using the buzzer to talk, Tracy asks who made him mayor of Game Town and the sketch then quickly resolves to Nicole wanting to be mayor and everyone talks about this mayoral position as if it were real, much to the annoyance of Clint, who now also loses money in the game, which then goes to all participants.

It was the first sketch of the night and a strong start for Lizzo, who laughed at the sketch, but rightly so. It’s funny and sometimes a host who just laughs when he wants to is the best kind at what he’s doing, and Lizzo is definitely up there in one of the best host and musical guest combo episodes. Maybe just don’t bring them to this trivia game show though.
