Ken Jeong is 100% sure he knows who Skunk is on this week’s episode of “The Masked Singer.” In fact, he’s so confident in his guessing accuracy on this contestant’s identity that he’s demanded host Nick Cannon give him the Golden Ear Trophy right now — and promises to buy him a shirt with the profits he could get from selling it. But Cannon thinks Ken is way, way off, which isn’t a wild take, seeing as Jeong is using his stomach to guide his decision.
In TheWrap’s exclusive sneak peek from Wednesday’s “The Masked Singer,” which you can view above, Jeong is telling his theory about the celebrity behind the Skunk mask to Cannon and panelists Jenny McCarthy, Nicole Scherzinger and Robin Thicke.
“But now empire and the the fact I saw cookies in the clue and I’m a little hungry, this has got to be Taraji P. Henson in the house,” the “Community” alum says.
“Really?!?” Cannon says, standing by the Skunk and inspecting her more closely, clearly not impressed by Ken’s guess.
“Just give me the Ear, Nick. I’ll buy you a shirt with it, alright?” Jeong jokes, making Cannon — who is wearing a blazer with his bare chest underneath — laugh, and prompting Nicole to go, “Oh my gosh, Ken!”
Here’s the official description for Wednesday’s “The Masked Singer,” which will feature the return of remaining Group A contestants Skunk, Bull, Hamster and Baby, plus the addition of a new Wildcard contestant: The “Group A” members return, and a new wildcard enters the game.
