‘SNL’ stars fire back after no ‘hot women’ on cast TikTok goes viral: ‘Grieving privately and uglily’

Live from New York, no “hot” women?

A woman on TikTok is going viral for claiming that “Saturday Night Live” has “never” hired a “hot” woman in its nearly 50-year run — and some of the show’s female cast members had hilarious reactions.

“Am I the only person who’s ever noticed that ‘SNL’ has never hired a, like, hot woman?” the TikTok user, who goes by Jahelis on the platform, asked in a video uploaded March 21 and currently has more than 482,700 views.

Two “SNL” stars reacted to the viral claim on social media.

“I’m not saying that every single woman who has been a cast member on ‘SNL’ is ugly,” she continued. “It’s just that none of them have ever been, like, hot.”

In the nearly four-minute video, Jahelis used cast member Heidi Gardner in an attempt to prove her point, claiming Gardner is often used as the “super hot and super dumb” girl in sketches even though “she’s not that pretty,” but “I guess technically the most conventional hot female on this cast.”

Jahelis went on to call “SNL” alumni Maya Rudolph “really beautiful” and Kristen Wiig “very conventionally attractive,” but said neither of them are necessarily hot.

She then switched to some of the men on the show, pulling up a photo of a young Jimmy Fallon, claiming he’s a “conventionally super hot guy,” along with Andy Samberg, Jason Sudeikis and current cast member Bowen Yang.

Jahelis wondered if this was purposeful due to the misogynistic take that “once we see women as super funny, we have a hard time seeing them as also both sexy and attractive.”

Nevertheless, the hot commentary made its way to current cast member Sarah Sherman’s feed, who approached the video with her sarcastic humor.

The 31-year-old, who joined “SNL” in 2021, addressed the TikTok on X, joking, “Just found out I’m not hot. Please give me and my family space to grieve privately and uglily at this time.”

Season 49 newcomer Chloe Troast stitched the video on TikTok, serenading viewers with a version of “Beautiful” by Christina Aguilera.

The Post has contacted reps for “SNL” for comment.

Fellow TikTok users passionately disagreed with Jahelis’ “random and mean” analysis, advocating for the beauty of female cast members past and present.

“Ego Nwodim is literally drop dead gorgeous,” one person said.

“Have you SEEN CHLOE FINEMAN ? shes so gorgeous,” another said.

A third quipped: “Kate McKinnon is unironically one of the most beautiful people I’ve ever seen.”

Julia Louis Dreyfus is one of the hottest women of all time?” another confused viewer remarked.

“Kate McKinnon??!!! Melissa Villasenor?! Amy Poehler?!?? Kristen Wig?!!! helloOoOo,” someone else asked as another person added, “Cecily Strong??? Tina Fey??”

Wiig returns to host “SNL” for the fifth time on April 6 with musical guest Raye. The show airs at 11:30 p.m. EST on NBC.
