It appears NBC couldn't get enough of Leslie Jones's Olympics enthusiasm because she's heading to Pyeongchang, South Korea with Team USA. The Saturday Night Live comedian has been invited back by as a contributor for the XXIII Olympic Winter Games by NBC Olympic programming president Jim Bell.

In a statement released early Tuesday, Bell said, "Experiencing the Olympics through the lens of Leslie is unlike anything else...Her passion for Team USA is contagious, and her adventures in South Korea should be fascinating." To which Jones responded...

During the Summer games in Rio back in 2016, Jones was welcomed as a contributor for the first time after the comedian's fanatical live tweeting became too funny to ignore. The reactions were fun, but nothing topped her head-to-toe patriotic outfits or her plastic gold medals. You can expect to see Jones and the NBC team covering the Winter Games from Pyeongchang beginning February 8.
