Last week we discussed the joy that is Leslie Jones’s Twitter commentary on the Olympics. But the thing is, she wasn’t actually on the ground in PyeongChang, South Korea. She was bringing us that joy from her couch, while she hung around NYC waiting to attend the premiere of Black Panther.

But that’s all in the past! She’s at the Winter Olympics now, baby, and she’s bringing us the good stuff directly. So what’s she getting up to? Well, she’s enjoying the hell out of the local cuisine:
She’s staying away from “booty water”:
She’s distracted by Adam Rippon’s sparkly shirt:
In fact, she’s got a lot of sartorial opinions, not all of them positive:
She even shares helpful warnings about nature!
She’s breaking the world record for saying the word “thighs” the most times in 19 seconds:
And she’s got a lot of feelings about the looks of Bobsled racers…
She’s supporting our Women’s Hockey Team (loudly):
So loudly, in fact, that player Hilary Knight called her presence a “game changer”:
Okay so @Lesdoggg aka Penalty Box Jones- We need you at our game Thursday. I got you tickets. 💪🏼🙏🏼🏒😍. #Olympics #TeamUSA You went beast mode tonight and we heard you. Def a game changer. #iceNinja pic.twitter.com/9QW11VcxZM— Hilary Knight (@HilaryKnight) February 19, 2018
And of course, she’s doing what any of us would do if left alone with Johnny Weir and Tara Lipinski (and a cell phone camera) — perform an impromptu Beyoncé dance routine:
You guys it was everything I thought it would be. @taralipinski is a freaking Queen!! And @JohnnyGWeir is literally the funniest person ever! Had me cracking up the whole time so fun today!! @NBCOlympics @Olympics pic.twitter.com/UVXayy5UVp— Leslie Jones 🦋 (@Lesdoggg) February 18, 2018
If all that weren’t proof that Leslie Jones is the hero and Olympian we deserve, here’s one final piece of stone cold motherfuckin’ TRUTH: She injured herself to bring us her important commentary. What have YOU done for your fellow Americans?
