Jason Momoa took the reins as the guest host of Saturday Night Live this week and mentioned his love of playing DC superhero Aquaman and how it has been a full-circle moment for him.

“I’m so happy to be here. I love this place. I love life. I love waking up washing my luxurious hair with a full body of shampoo,” Momoa said as host of the NBC sketch show. “And I love playing Aquaman because I love the ocean.”

Momoa continued, “Growing up, all I wanted to be was a marine biologist. Which makes sense because I’m built like a scientist.”

However, growing up in Iowa presented a problem for a young Momoa. The actor went on to reveal that while watching the movie In God’s Hands, which was filmed in Hawaii, he got the idea to move out there.

Momoa recalled that when he returned to Hawaii he “ended up getting on a TV show called Baywatch.

“I call it the B-word, but I fell in love with acting,” he added. “I only stayed for a few seasons because you really don’t want to get stuck in the b-hole. And now I feel like my life has come full circle.”

Furthermore, Momoa talked about working to protect the oceans and small island nations talking about the water company he started “to eliminate single-use plastic water bottles. It’s called Mananalu.”

Momoa said that the word in Hawaiian means “suck it Dasani.”
