Sofia Vergara's 'Saturday Night Live' promos

Sofia Vergara

Ay, dios mio! The hermosa Sofia Vergara is hosting Sabado Night Live this week, and hey — did you know that she’s from Colombia? Because if this clip is any indication, April 7’s SNL might as well be called An Hour and a Half of The Manuel Ortiz Show, Whether You Like It or Not.

There are two kinds of quips in the following promo reel, which also features cast member Jason Sudeikis:  jokes about Vergara’s accent, and jokes about how hot she is. Granted, SNL episodes that focus on the host’s stratospheric attractiveness can still be funny; see Jon Hamm’s outings for proof. But the “Isn’t Spanish hilarious?” undertone here gives me pause — mostly because I worry that we’re in for a whole lot of Fred Armisen pretending to be various ethnicities. Watch the video yourself to see what I mean:
