On Monday, the U.S. bronze medal-winning figure skater joined the “Saturday Night Live” comedian to commentate on Canadian pair Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir’s short dance routine.
Virtue and Moir didn’t disappoint with their podium-topping performance in Pyeongchang, South Korea — and neither did Jones and Rippon, who brought their A-game with a unique analysis of the ice dance event.
Although Rippon may have turned down NBC’s correspondent gig, he showed off some great commentating chops in the clip. So don’t be surprised to see him in the commentary box at Beijing 2022.
These fans would certainly enjoy it:
OMG thank you so much for posting this! I was upset I had missed it. Yes, yes, yes more please!! Love this so much ⛸??✨?❤️
