Bridgerton heartthrob Regé-Jean Page brought the heat to Saturday Night Live as this weekend’s host.
After a sizzling opening monologue that made the ladies of SNL swoon, the British-Zimbabwean actor got a little crazy with Puerto Rican rapper Bad Bunny.
In a music video titled “Loco” — Spanish for crazy — Page showed off his rap skills alongside the chart-topping hip-hop star.

The video opened with SNL regular Ego Nwodim channeling Megan Thee Stallion as a hot girl on the town. Wearing an embellished black bodycon dress, Nwodim strutted in and fired off a rap verse: “Bad bi-ch alert, I look fuego. Tight dress, new heels, don’t play though. Skip the line ’cause this ass VIP. All these broke thots just mad they ain’t me.”
She tried to hit on Page, but he was having none of it and told her she was seeing things after a year in COVID-19 quarantine.
“I’m not real. I just live in your brain,” Page rapped. Nwodim responded, “You’re real and I’m a bad bi-ch.” But Page reminded her, “No. You’re alone and you’re stoned watching Hitch.”
The hot girl was transported back to her apartment and realized it was true, she had gone a little “loco.”
She texted a bunch of guys, but only one hit her back — Pete Davidson, who flexed his rap skills and said he was completely “mad like Hannibal.” But not as “loco” as embattled actor Armie Hammer — “that dude’s a cannibal.” Davidson said he was just crazy enough to understand the plot of Christopher Nolan’s bizarro thriller Tenet.
The video switched back to Nwodim’s apartment and she began talking to a plant.
Suddenly Bad Bunny — this weekend’s musical guest — popped out of the leaves and started rapping. “Mentally, mentally, mentally ill. Go buss it down if you’re mentally ill. Talk to the plant. Say how you feel. Mentally, mentally, mentally ill. Loco!”
