Bridget Nelson (born September 24, 1964), also credited as Bridget Jones or Bridget Jones Nelson, is a former writer for MST3K and has been married to Michael J. Nelson since 1990.

Bridget played various recurring or guest characters on the show in addition to co-writing. Her characters included Mr. B Natural, Nuveena, Flavia and Darlene.

On the RiffTrax Blog (4/25/07-10/23/09), an iTunes exclusive downloadable podcast, there was a May 1, 2007 episode that featured an excerpt of Mike Nelson and Kevin Murphy being interviewed by the Free Beer and Hot Wings Radio Show! During the episode, Mike remarked to the interviewers that his wife, Bridget, was creeped out so much by "Manos" The Hands of Fate, that she couldn't even watch it to that very day.

In June 2015, Bridget teamed up with Mary Jo Pehl to regularly riff shorts for RiffTrax.

Personal quotes

  • "When I started on the show, Mike and I were engaged. I was writing scripts at home, so Mike would come home and the movie was still on the VCR, and he’d be like, “Oh, God—please!”"
  • "We didn’t have the Internet when we started, so our references were from our own brains. There was no looking stuff up."
