Why Michael Che's Wedding Gift Worries Colin Jost & Scarlett Johansson

Colin Jost and Scarlett Johansson are still waiting for a wedding present from Michael Che, and they have some concerns. During Wednesday’s episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Jost reveals why he and Johansson, whom he married last October, are feeling uneasy about what the Saturday Night Live “Weekend Update” co-anchor might gift them following their nuptials.

While Che had jokingly promised to cause a disturbance during his pal’s wedding, Jost says the 37-year-old comedian “was well behaved” at the event, which left him more nervous than ever.

“For the whole time I was waiting for the other shoe to drop and wondering what his long con was going to be,” Jost admits, before revealing that he thinks Che’s long-term plan has something to do with a wedding gift. 

“The other day, he just kinda came up to me in the hallway and was like, ‘Hey, I got you something.’ And I was like, ‘What do you mean?’ And he’s like, ‘Wedding present. I’ll have to bring it by sometime.’ I’m like, ‘Oh God,'” Jost says. “So I’m waiting to find out what this thing is, but we’re both pretty concerned for our well-being.”

“It’s also kind of a ‘house warming’ present. It’s going to be something that I know is going to take up a lot of space,” he adds. “It’s probably going to be haunting in some way.”

Despite the potential pranks from Che, Jost says that he and Johansson “felt lucky that we were able to get in a wedding, have our families there and be able to do it safely.”

“It was nice,” he says. “We felt like we got away with it.”
