Saturday Night Live asked fans who should step up to host during the upcoming season 42. Simone Biles has an idea: the Final Five.

The gold medal-winning Olympian replied to SNL‘s tweet Wednesday night, nearly begging for the chance to step into Studio 8H. “PLEASE! We have been dying to do it,” Biles wrote on behalf of Gabby Douglas, Laurie Hernandez, Madison Kocian, Aly Raisman, and herself.

During this month’s Summer Olympic Games in Rio, the five gymnasts accounted for nine medals, including gold in the team all-around. Biles herself brought home gold in the individual all-around, the vault, and the floor.

SNL returns for its 42nd season on Oct. 1 at 11:30 p.m. ET on NBC.
