Pete Buttigieg to Guest Host 'Jimmy Kimmel Live!'

Pete Buttigieg is heading to late night!

The 38-year-old former Mayor of South Bend, Indiana announced on the Today show that he will be guest hosting Jimmy Kimmel Live! later this week.

“We’re lining up a great slate of guests,” Pete shared via Deadline. “Patrick Stewart is coming on, so we are very excited about that.”

Host Jimmy Kimmel will be taking the night off as he’s in production for new episodes of Who Wants to be a Millionaire.

Today host Craig Melvin asked Pete what he has in store for his opening monologue.

“Hopefully some funnier minds than mine will be doing some writing for that,” Pete replied. “I think it is going to be fun. The thing about running a presidential campaign is you will have been focused on one thing and one thing only. It is nice to be able to zoom out and come back at life.”

Pete‘s hosting gig on Jimmy Kimmel Live! comes a little over a week after he dropped out of the Democratic race for president and endorsed fellow candid Joe Biden.

Pete Buttigieg‘s episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live! will be airing on Thursday, March 12 on ABC.
