  • -Welcome back to the show.

  • -This is ridiculous. -How you feeling?

  • -Why would you do that? [ Laughter ]

  • -Why did we do that? -Why would we do that?

  • Why would we do that then this? -I don't know.

  • I just figured we'd go right into the interview.

  • [ Laughter ]

  • How are you -- How are you feeling right --

  • -Not good, not good. -We have bread.

  • -I'm good. -We have bread, we have milk.

  • [ Laughter ]

  • -I'm gonna be okay. I'm gonna be okay.

  • [ Laughter ] I'm strong, I'm strong.

  • Jerry from "Cheer" yesterday told me I'm strong.

  • -All right, good, yes. All right, good.

  • -Whoo!

  • -Since I've seen you last, congratulations.

  • -Whoa. You've gotten eng-- [ Laughs ]

  • I'm sorry. -You got engaged --

  • You got engaged. -I did, I got engaged.

  • Thank you. -You got engaged.

  • [ Cheers and applause ] -Thank you, thank you.

  • ♪♪

  • -You got engaged. Tell me the story.

  • [ Laughter ]

  • -So, I got engaged in the Bahamas, and I took my fiancée,

  • and I had it all set up.

  • I had a photographer, everything.

  • I set up -- Jesus Christ.

  • [ Laughter ]

  • I'm fine. It was so beautiful.

  • [ Laughter ]

  • So we had, like, this 30-yard-long pier,

  • and I tried to trick her so she didn't know,

  • so it was a surprise.

  • So she's in high heels walking down this 30-foot pier,

  • and she's like, "Why are we walking 30 yards --"

  • I said, "Babe, just come on. Let's go."

  • And so we're walking down this pier,

  • and all of a sudden, there's a fire at the end of it.

  • She's like, "Why is there a fire?"

  • And I was like, "I don't know.

  • Maybe somebody's got something special going on.

  • But not us, somebody else." [ Laughter ]

  • And so we keep walking, and then you hear this drone

  • buzzing overhead -- brbrbr.

  • And she's like, "Why is there a drone overhead?"

  • I said, "I don't know, babe.

  • Maybe somebody's got some big surprise going on.

  • But not for us." [ Light laughter ]

  • So I get down to the end, I drop to a knee.

  • I said, "Babe, will you marry me?"

  • She said yes. Somebody took a picture.

  • Guy came out of a bush, he took the picture.

  • There was a yacht in the background.

  • You have the picture. [ Laughter ]

  • I told her the yacht was ours.

  • It's not, but it looks beautiful.

  • -[ Laughs ] That is the moment right there.

  • [ Cheers and applause ]

  • I saw her backstage. She's gorgeous.

  • -Thank you. -Congratulations.

  • -Thank you. -Does J.J. Watt

  • care about the wedding planning, the flower arrangements?

  • -J.J. Watt doesn't care about anything right now, man.

  • [ Laughter ]

  • I don't care about the flowers, I don't care about anything.

  • I want the food. I'm a big food guy,

  • so I told them... -Oh, really?

  • -..."I've gone to a lot of weddings.

  • I've eaten chicken breasts. I've eaten 4 ounces of steak."

  • I said, "I want -- My guests are from Wisconsin.

  • We're bigger people. I want a buffet, so..."

  • [ Laughter ]

  • I mean, it's -- Yeah, it's not like

  • a Chinese buffet, guys, okay? [ Laughter ]

  • -A real buffet. -It's, like, prime rib.

  • Like, it's a buffet. -Yeah, you're going for it.

  • -I mean, I want my guests to be full.

  • -Full. I heard there's a rumor that

  • Arnold Schwarzenegger offered to be the minister --

  • -Officiant, officiant. -Officiant, yeah, sorry.

  • -Officiant. -Sorry. I'm just

  • freaking out right now. -I know.

  • [ Laughter ] Officiant.

  • He wanted to officiate your wedding,

  • Arnold Schwarzenegger. -He did.

  • -Is he going to? -No.

  • [ Laughter ] He did --

  • He did offer, and it was very generous.

  • But then, I figured he's probably busy,

  • but then I also started picturing in my head...

  • [ As Schwarzenegger ] "Do you take this woman

  • to be your wife?" [ Laughter ]

  • [ Normal voice ] And I thought, for the video...

  • -"You may kiss the bride. You may kiss the bride now."

  • -"I'll be back. I'm going to get the rings."

  • [ Laughter ]

  • And then, we'd get married. He's like, "Get to the chopper."

  • "Arnold, we don't have a chopper.

  • -"We don't have a chopper. There's no chopper."

  • We have a mutual friend, Justin Timberlake.

  • -We do, yeah. -He's a great guy.

  • [ Cheers and applause ]

  • I love that guy. Where did you guys meet?

  • -We met backstage at one of his shows early in my career,

  • and I actually asked him for a sack da--

  • or, a touchdown dance because I was playing

  • a little tight end then.

  • And I was like, "Hey, man, can you give me a touchdown dance?"

  • I didn't know what to ask him.

  • I mean, I was excited. -Yeah.

  • -And he gave me like a 45-second choreographed touchdown dance.

  • [ Laughter ]

  • It was incredible, and he did it in front of me!

  • And I'm like, "You're literally one of

  • the best dancers on the planet.

  • I'm a 290-pound defensive end.

  • I also don't have 45 seconds

  • on the field after the touchdown."

  • -A 45-second touchdown dance.

  • -I don't have any time for... -Did you try it ever once?

  • -I tried it right in front of him right there,

  • and then he was like, "I don't think that was it."

  • I was like, "I don't think that was it.

  • I didn't think it was it when I was doing it."

  • -Do you remember any of the moves right now?

  • -No, I don't remember any of it. It was too long.

  • [ Cheers and applause ]

  • ♪♪

  • [ Cheers and applause ]

  • Oh, oh, my God!

  • Uh-oh. All right, all right.

  • Okay. -What the hell is it?

  • -You could've done that. They would've loved it.

  • [ Cheers and applause ]

  • They would've loved that.

  • J.J., you're hosting "Saturday Night Live"

  • this Saturday night.

  • Luke Combs, musical guest.

  • Everyone's so excited about that.

  • Did you ever dream of being on "Saturday Night Live"?

  • -Yeah -- Well, no. My dreams never got that big.

  • I'm not gonna lie to you. -Oh, really?

  • -I dreamed of playing in the NFL,

  • and I thought that that was as big as I could possibly dream,

  • and it's been unbelievable.

  • I never even imagined being on "Saturday Night Live."

  • I grew up in Wisconsin, so I was watching Chris Farley

  • do Matt Foley and I just -- -Really?

  • -Yes. Iconic. -One of my favorite, too,

  • Matt Foley. -It was insane.

  • I mean, it was unbelievable. So, watching him,

  • "...in a van down by the river,"

  • with government cheese, being from Wisconsin.

  • -Yeah, that's a good man. So this one's for Farley.

  • -Yes, absolutely. -Is there any relation --

  • correlation from the NFL to "SNL"?

  • -This week has been crazy. I think -- as you know,

  • obviously, I don't think people truly understand and appreciate

  • how a "Saturday Night Live" show is put on.

  • I mean, I got there on Monday, just like a football week.

  • You get there on Monday, you're performing on Saturday.

  • But the week of preparation, they're putting out new skits,

  • they're putting out new costumes, new sets.

  • It's truly -- I've never seen anything like it.

  • So the people at "SNL,"

  • I have so much more respect for already this week.

  • -Yeah, well, you're gonna crush it.

  • We're looking forward to watching it.

  • I love you, buddy, you are a -- -I appreciate it, man.

  • Thank you. -You're a hot one, buddy.

  • -Yeah. Thank you. -You are a hot one.

  • -Thank you. -J.J. Watt, everyone.
