Olivia Dunne is far too young to think about retirement from sports to host a show. But, Olivia Dunne auditions for a sports show in a new video clip, and she’s hilarious.

The prized LSU gymnast auditioned for the third hosting role on ESPN’s Monday Night “ManningCast” with Eli and Peyton Manning in a new promo video. Peyton’s Omaha Productions shared the funny clip last week. She definitely has a sense of humor.

Olivia Dunne Auditions for a Sports Show

Dunne appeared with a bunch of different stars in the comedy bit, including retired NFL quarterback Tom Brady, plus a slew of active players and coaches. Some of the other stars in the video included Patrick Mahomes, Pat McAfee, Stephen A Smith, Kirk Cousins, Jared Goff, Jamaar Chase, TJ Hockenson, Sean McVay, Dan Campbell, Nick Sirianni, Sarah Silverman, Lil Wayne, Mike Tyson, DJ Khaled, and many more. She appeared at the ManningCast host auditions in a purple Lady Tigers leotard. Dunne, the 20-year-old Sports Illustrated model, is going into her senior year at LSU. She’s actually the NCAA’s highest-paid female athlete. Watch her clips HERE and HERE.

In other news, Dunne recently took to TikTok to answer the question from fans of, “Can I come watch you practice?” You’re not going to like the answer. In the video, she answers the question while lip-syncing to Alexis Rose’s lines from Schitt’s Creek. “I am going to have to, like, bring you down to earth for a sec,” she synced. “There’s no way you’re getting tickets for that show.” Ouch. But, at least she adds, “But I love your enthusiasm.” So, all is not lost. You can watch the full video view her TikTok below. Are you a fan of Dunne on TikTok and other social platforms?
