In her opening monologue, Selena joked that one of the reasons she wanted to host SNL was to find love.

At that point, SNL cast members Kyle Mooney and James Austin Johnson both volunteered to take Selena out, but she was quick to point out that they’re both married. Punkie Johnson then decided to shoot her shot with Selena, who responded, “It’s vibe, but lets see how the after party goes.” Find out which Netflix star will be hosting the SNL season finale next weekend!Read more on justjared.com
