Leslie Jones, Olympics

Twitter: Leslie Jones

Leslie Jones has made it to the 2016 Rio Olympics!

The Ghostbusters star, who has become known for her live-tweeting marathons, received an invitation to the Brazilian city after her Olympic commentary went viral. Jones landed in Rio Thursday morning and was graciously welcomed with her own Snapchat filter. Not one to skip a beat, the Saturday Night Live star began taking note of her surroundings as soon as she was headed to her hotel.

Sharing videos on Twitter—outfitted with her filter and one of the official Olympics filters—Jones provided colorful commentary of the roads, her hotel and the beach.

"Look at that, y'all," she said as she took in the views from a car.

"Yeah, bitches, I'm in Rio," she said in another video while exploring her hotel's pool alrea. "This is how we do it in Rio. I don't see no damn Zika nowhere!"

Along with the pool video she tweeted, "Nice hotel." She must be keeping it simple for now before she goes all-out at the events!

In one final video, Jones captured the Copacabana beach and its Olympic rings and narrated her enthusiasm she felt while taking in the scenery. "Across the street from the beach, y'all, where epicness-ness is about to happen. Look at them rings! The Olympics!"

"CHEAH WE HERE!!" she wrote with the video.

With Jones on the scene, we know she's going to slay all day.
