Comedy must run in the Manning family. New York Giants football quarterback Eli Manning, 31, followed in big brother Peyton Manning's footsteps on Saturday by hosting Saturday Night Live, and Eli Manning one-upped his Denver Broncos bro by doing a skit in drag a la RuPaul's Drag Race.

Decked out in a blonde bouffant wig, yellow dress, and blue eye shadow, Manning towered above fellow "contestants" Fred Armisen and Bobby Moynihan as "Ms. Chicken Fried Steak," who came in third in a drag contest in one skit.

Playing the contest's talk show host, Kenan Thompson announced that Manning's takeaway was "no cash prize and a tiny little trophy" shaped like a tube of lipstick.

"Third place?" Manning said, channeling his inner actor. "Do the judges not have workin' eyeballs?"

Saturday Night Live has two episodes left in season 37. Will Ferrell will return to host Saturday Night Live on next week's show, May 12, and Mick Jagger has been announced as the host of the season finale on May 19.
