Ronda Rousey Skits Saturday Night Live
UFC fighter, Ronda Rousey, was surprisingly natural on camera. I was not expecting that at all. Her best skits were “Love Struck” when she beats the crap out of the mean girl who tried to prank her, and the football party sketch, where she tries to explain party etiquette to her doofus co-workers.
My favorite skit overall was “Bland Man” which perfectly skewers the current season of The Bachelor.
Also, Tina Fey drops by to play Sara Palin with Darrell Hammond as Trump in the cold open. At this point, it doesn’t take much to mock events that already play out like a parody.
