Molly Qerim returned to First Take this week after a brief absence from the show.
While Stephen A. Smith is obviously the face of the program and inarguably the biggest reason for First Take’s success, Qerim is the heart of the show.
She adds an irreplaceable element to it, and whenever she is away, the show is worse off for it.
As soon as Qerim returned, fans couldn’t help but notice her choice of outfit to the program.

“This guy is a fantastic talent. … He’s gotta find a way to get back on the court. Period. Because it’s starting to look very bad and it’s raising suspicions everywhere.” pic.twitter.com/MlgTZMCYsp

Fans absolutely loved the look.
They immediately took to social media while the episode was still going to express just how much they enjoyed it.

Qerim has been in the headlines nonstop over the past few weeks. Between her wild photo shoot, provocative Super Bowl outfit choice and never-ending rumors about her and Smith, she feels like a permanent fixture in the news cycle.
NBA playoff season is generally a great ratings time for First Take. Obviously basketball is Smith’s bread and butter, and it leads to a lot of eyeballs.
At least Zach Wilson is doing well for himself off the field. https://t.co/hlFld8xEv4

That means Qerim’s profile will only increase from here. What will she ultimately go viral for next? Time will tell.
