Leslie Jones is my Olympics inspiration, and she should be yours too.

No, she isn't slaying a gymnastics floor routine. Nor is she giving us a #PhelpsFace meme. But she is rubbing shoulders with all the Who's Who of the games, and producing some A+ content while doing so.

As you might have heard, Jones was flown out to Rio after an executive at NBC noticed her extremely enthusiastic social media coverage of the games. Snapchat even created a personalized filter with a bitmoji of the comedian.

And now that she's there, her posts have been even more entertaining. Let's now go through all the famous faces the SNL star has befriended. There's a lot.

Matthew McConaughey
The two are, in the words of Jones, the "Best Olympic fans!!" Agreed.
