Nevertheless, Kim Kardashian West being announced among this season's first few hosts was met with an immediate uproar from a bunch of people we can only assume have never seen the show. "SNL" has always been about breaking boundaries, and has a history of unorthodox and unexpected hosts.
Perhaps it's because we've yet to see much crossover among those hosts and the realm of reality television, and reality TV continues to be seen as the unwanted lesser relation to "proper" television. In all honesty, though, that just shows that "SNL" is a little behind the times.
There are a whole slew of incredible famous faces from the world of reality television, beyond RuPaul, who are more than ready to mix it up with the cast of Lorne Michaels' legendary sketch comedy staple.
After all, people are constantly talking about how fake a lot of reality television is, with these people acting out these staged moments -- kind of sounds like "SNL," doesn't it?
Well, fans and naysayers alike got their first glimpse of Kim on the vaunted Studio 8H stage alongside veteran cast-member Cecily Strong and musical guest Halsey. It's an early chance to see how she handles silly banter, and it quickly proved she might even be down to clown on herself a bit.
