Kristen Stewart Tries to Get a Throuple Going on SNL

Kristen Stewart, Ego Nwodim, and Kenan Thompson

During her second time hosting Saturday Night Live, Kristen Stewart gave viewers a memorable glimpse of a unicorn attempting to do the hunting for a change.

In “A Proposition,” Stewart employs her signature half-closed eyes and husky voice to try to woo a cheerfully oblivious couple, played by Kenan Thompson and Ego Nwodim. 

“Have you ever heard that song by Katy Perry, something like ‘I kissed a girl, and I liked it?’” Stewart purrs, practically into Nwodim’s neck. When that’s unsuccessful, she explains she’s pansexual. 

“I’m enjoying these pan-fried crab cakes,” Thompson quips back, after Nwodim asks whether that meant she liked to have sex at breakfast time.

Finally, Stewart breaks it down. “Let me be blunt: I want to explore tonight, with someone here,” she says.

“Well, whoever that’s gonna be, I’m sure they’re gonna enjoy it,” Thompson says. 

Stewart slinks off but doesn’t go far, body-rolling a few feet from the couple’s table and asking for their feedback. “I can just keep doing this all night,” she explains.

“It’s wonderful!” Nwodim encourages her.

Finally, Stewart gives up. Her charms may have worked on Vanessa Bayer’s repressed housewife in Stewart’s unforgettable first SNL appearance, but they’re not so effective this time around. The couple, it turns out, already has a third: Bowen Yang’s “pig boy.” 

Stewart’s opening monologue — in which she asked a series of audience members increasingly personal questions (“Are you closer with your mom or your dad?”) — also played with queerness, perhaps unintentionally. 

Stewart’s other appearances included a scruffy World War II factory worker vowing she’d kill Hitler if she only got the chance; a jury foreman whose growly stomach interferes with the criminal justice process; a new mom who fistfights Aidy Bryant over the parentage of her child; an amateur astronomer who has more than stars on the brain; and an awkward adult who needs an app to learn how to talk to children.
