The honor of hosting “Saturday Night Live” is typically reserved for actors, comedians, musicians, or – sometimes – even reality-TV stars. Every once in a while, however, an athlete will channel their best comedic skills and take a shot at performing on the beloved live program. Over the years, there have been more than 30 professional athletes who have taken the stage and hosted “SNL,” including NFL legends like Peyton Manning and Tom Brady, wrestling icons like Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and John Cena, and NBA stars like LeBron James and Charles Barkley.

While some female athletes have taken on the hosting gig – like Chris Evert – the number is shockingly smaller than men who were at the helm. The discrepancy is hard to overlook, especially as another male athlete steps into the role of host.

The next athlete to star in the live sketch show at 30 Rock is Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce, who recently won the Super Bowl on Feb. 12. Ahead of Kelce’s appearance on March 4, here are all the athletes who have hosted “SNL.”
