Leslie Jones told people not to use her guest bathroom even before covid
A post shared by Leslie Jones (@lesdogggg) on
Leslie Jones was on Jimmy Kimmel Live promoting the reboot of Supermarket Sweep, which she’s hosting. The new season premiered last night on ABC. I’ve taped it and am excited to watch it! Leslie told Jimmy that she used to watch the original Supermarket Sweep in the 90s and even applied to be a contestant. (Her roommate had to leave early to go work her shift as a waitress and Leslie lost her chance!) I used to watch that too! That show was so much fun and I know the reboot with Leslie will be awesome. They couldn’t get a better host for that. She also said that things aren’t that much different for her in the pandemic because she’s always been very germ conscious and she called herself a hypochondriac. At least she knows that about herself. Before covid she would try to discourage people from even using her guest bathroom and when they did she’d clean it right afterwards. Plus she’s always had PPE! Here’s some of what she told Jimmy and that video is below. She kept cracking me up.
On how she’s keeping busy during the pandemic
Doing what I always do, watch TV and tweet out what I’m watching. Pandemic wasn’t really a pandemic to me. That’s how I live my regular life.
How safe she’s being now
You could say I had PPE before PPE was actually PPE. I don’t let people use my bathroom.
“Before [this] if somebody came to your house they’re not allowed to use your bathroom?”
I’ve got two bathrooms now but if somebody used that bathroom it is immediately cleaned. Most of the time I ask them to go to the lobby. I don’t play like that. I don’t get in the swimming pool when other people are in the swimming pool. That’s booty water at that point. I absolutely stay at an Air BnB and no one is allowed in my pool. It has to be heated so it can kill the germs.
“Do you go outside?”
No, it’s a pandemic. Sometimes I go [out]. Wherever I go it’s limited. Everything has to be planned out.
She’s a hypochondriac
I am a hypochondriac. My doctor wants me to just stop. She’s like ‘there’s nothing wrong with you. We can’t run anymore tests. There are no more tests.’ I think I’m having a heart attack [all the time] I’m like ‘which side is the heart on?’

I have not had one person in my house since March 13th other than my son’s dad, who came to stay with us and got tested before. I can completely understand people who are germ conscious not wanting anyone to use their bathroom. It seems like you would catch more just from hanging out with the person, but that’s mostly based on our knowledge of covid. Before now we were worried about things like flu and norovirus hanging around on surfaces. Remember all the commercials about killing colds and flu in the bathroom? Simpler ass times.
Leslie also did an interview with ET where she said that she doesn’t miss SNL (she left last fall after five seasons) because it was a really hard job. She said “That job was like two jobs and very restrictive too. I wasn’t very free there.” I bet she has some stories and hopefully she’ll dish at some point.
Here’s that interview!
Yep getting that vote in!! #VOTEVOTEVOTE
Who’s ready for Supermarket Sweep?! Make sure you tune in THIS Sunday October 18th @ 8pm on ABC! @supermarketsweepabc
