J.J Watt: From NFL Texans Player to SNL Host
Last Saturday night, Houston Texans’ defensive J.J Watt hosted SNL (Saturday Night Live) for the first time. With this milestone, he officially became the eighth NFL player to be asked to deliver this prestigious honor.
Since last night, many fans have searched for his profile on IMDB as well as on YouTube. Therefore, this article will give you some background knowledge on J.J Watt.
Since entering the NFL, J.J Watt has created a wave across the United States, presenting in NFL sportsbooks around the globe. In the 2011 season, Watt caught the attention of the sports world when he blocked Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton and reversed the score with just a touchdown. This gave Houston the impetus to win the first playoff match in franchise history. Since then, at sportsbooks such as NFL Betting Indiana, he has been rated by fans as one of the best NFL players and always has high odds of betting.
Based on his outstanding play and great performances on the pitch, Watt was voted Defensive Player of the Year three times and became the second player in NFL history to win this prestigious award three times. This helped him to join the Hall of Famer Lawrence Taylor.
One of the things that made fans deeply impressed with this NFL player was his actions in 2017 when Hurricane Harvey hit Houston and partially flooded the city. The storm also destroyed countless houses, with damage of nearly $200 billion. After this disaster, Watt began a social media campaign to raise $200,000 for relief efforts. He used all of his money to rebuild 1,183 homes in the Houston area and more than 971 child care centers. For these significant contributions, in 2018, Watt was given the Walter Payton Man of the Year Award.
However, the 2019 season seemed to be unlucky for Watt. The betting community was quite upset when he missed eight matches due to a torn chest muscle. For this reason, he was taken to Injured Reserve for followup for eight weeks and had to miss the rest of the season.
With his accomplishments and dedication, Watt has undoubtedly been very successful in the NFL field, especially gaining people’s attention when betting NFL odds. He has also appeared on television shows such as “The League,” “New Girl” and even Billy Lynn’s “Long Halftime Walk.” Therefore, Watt’s SNL performance was solid, with him portraying Kristoff from “Frozen 2” and The Bachelor.
