The Internet Is Not So Sure About Celebrities Taking Over Shark Week 2019

By

Shark Week 2019 is already making waves — but it's not just the sharks people are talking about. Rob Riggle took Adam DeVine, Anthony Anderson, Joel McHale, and Damon Wayans Jr. on the ultimate "Shark Trip," and the internet has mixed feelings about these celebrities upstaging the sharks. 

So who is the host of Shark Week 2019? Have the sharks gone Hollywood on us? Here's everything you need to know at this fin-tastic time of year! 

Who is the host of Shark Week 2019? Unofficially, it's Rob Riggle.

In previous years, Discovery has announced one official host for the entire duration of Shark Week festivities. In 2018, Shaquille O'Neal had the honor, and Rob Riggle joined him on a shark expedition. 

For Shark Week 2019, Rob is hosting Shark After Dark, a nightly roundup of Shark Week's most awesome moments. He'll be joined by celebrity guests and shark experts throughout the week.
