Jim Carrey kicked off his guest host stint on Saturday Night Live (08Jan11) by proposing to a stunned audience member.
The funnyman got down on bended knee after spotting the woman, called Mindy, in the front row and asking, "You wanna make this moment here tonight really count? Marry me, Mindy."
He then put a finger to the woman's lips as he listed the pluses of marrying the movie star.
Carrey, who split from actress/model Jenny MCCarthy in 2010, quipped, "First of all, I'm Jim Carrey and you know what that means - mucho dinero (cash), big bucks even with a pre-nup, really... Please, please say yes."
When Mindy held up her hand and displayed her wedding ring, the comic added, "Well, I guess I'm gonna have to wait."
Carrey then plucked a burly man from the audience and introduced him as his new "life partner".
The Mask star was a ratings winner on the show as a mysterious ballet dancer in Black Swan, a spurned husband, a cheesy 1970s disco star and a sex guru, among other zany characters.
