It all had to do with Pete imitating him on this past weekend’s “Saturday Night Live” episode.
As fans of the sketch comedy show know, Kim Kardashian made her big hosting debut on Saturday, October 9.
To many people’s surprise, Kim didn’t disappoint.

She really went there.
Oh, and Pete got to lock lips with THE Kim Kardashian West!
Eh, not really.
In addition to portraying Aladdin, Pete got to dress up like his friend MGK while starring alongside Chloe Fineman as Megan .
The sketch was called, “The People’s Kourt,” starring Kim as her older sister, Kourtney.
In the skit, the honorable judge Kourtney gets bored with Kanye West and Kim fighting about the rapper’s past tweets, so she invites in her bestie “bailiffs.”
Pete and Chloe appeared as MGK and Fox in the same outfits that the real-life couple wore to the 2021 iHeartRadio Music Awards.
MGK took to his Instagram Story to call out the comedian.
In his first Story he wrote, “Pete you know damn well I don’t talk like that 🤣🤣🤣.”
He then posted a pic of himself Face Timing with Pete and wrote “Twins.”
He then took matters to another platform, Twitter, to let ‘SNL’ know it’s his time to shine.
MGK tweeted, “I think it’s time for me to come on the show as Pete @nbcsnl.”

Lorne Michael has YET to respond, but we’re going to guess that since MGK has acting experience, it won’t be long until he’s a host of the show.
