Kristen Wiig Inducted Into SNL's Five-Timers Club Amid Celebrity Cameos

Kristen Wiig

Actress and comedian Kristen Wiig made a memorable appearance on Saturday Night Live, marking her fifth time hosting the show and officially joining the prestigious Five-Timers Club. Wiig expressed her excitement during the monologue, only to be surprised by a series of celebrity cameos from non-Five-Timers Club members.

The monologue kicked off with Wiig acknowledging her milestone and expressing her joy at being back on the SNL stage. The unexpected celebrity appearances began with Paul Rudd, a previous member of the club, who hinted at the possibility of a classic five-timer sketch.

As the night unfolded, more stars made appearances, including Matt Damon, who humorously claimed his two hosting gigs equated to five in total. Wiig playfully questioned the fairness of the situation, as she had earned her Five-Timers Club jacket through legitimate hosting duties.

The confusion continued as other celebrities, such as Ryan Gosling, donned Five-Timers jackets despite not meeting the hosting criteria. The SNL creator, Lorne Michaels, seemed unfazed by the mix-up, adding to the comedic chaos of the evening.

Despite the unexpected turn of events, Wiig was eventually presented with her own Five-Timers jacket, solidifying her status in the exclusive club. Throughout the night, familiar faces like Jon Hamm, Martin Short, Fred Armisen, and Will Forte made appearances, adding to the humor and camaraderie of the show.

The evening also featured musical guest Raye, rounding out a star-studded lineup for Wiig's milestone episode. The Five-Timers Club, known for its elite members who have hosted SNL five or more times, added Wiig to its prestigious roster in a night filled with laughter and surprises.
