Ken Jeong loves being “so bad” at ‘The Masked Singer’
Written by ABC AUDIO on October 20, 2021
Ken Jeong has starred in the blockbuster movies like The Hangover, had his own sitcom, Dr. Ken, and been a part of beloved TV shows like Community. But he’s also famous for being famously bad as a judge on The Masked Singer.
The Nick Cannon-hosted hit has Ken, Jenny McCarthy, Nicole Scherzinger and Robin Thicke trying to figure out whose pipes are piping out of a collection of crazy mascot-like costumes — and bad guesses turn out to be just as fun as the reveals.
Jeong, who pursued a dream of acting after years of being a physician, explained to ABC Audio that his gig on the show is all about having a good time.
“Personally, I’ve achieved everything I want to achieve, and then some, and I feel like the rest of my life is just trying to have fun…for the rest of my days,” he admits.
“Like if you watch me on The Masked Singer… I literally just have fun being bad at that game, you know?” he says with a laugh. “And so I think if the public now just senses that I’m just trying to have a good time, you know, all the time, I think that’s I think that’s part of connection. I think that’s part of entertainment.”
You can check out Ken doing what he does worst, and loving it, when The Masked Singer airs tonight at 8 p.m. Eastern on Fox.
