It’s rare that “The Masked Singer” judge Ken Jeong doesn’t find something to get worked up about on every episode of Fox’s silly singing competition, and this week’s episode is no different.
In TheWrap’s exclusive sneak peek from Wednesday night’s hour, Jeong’s latest bone is picked with host Nick Cannon, who *offends* the “Community” alum following Jenny McCarthy’s guess for Group B contestant Dalmatian.
“For some reason, the way he ran out and was buddy-buddy with you, I thought maybe it was like Kevin Hart,” McCarthy says to Canon in the clip, which you can view above, while she her fellow judges Jeong, Robin Thicke and Nicole Scherzinger make their first-impression guesses for Dalmatian.
In reaction, Cannon goes, “He’d be this big,” gesturing to an imaginary person who is at least half the Dalmatian contestant’s size. “He’d be like a shih tzu or a poodle.”
“Whoa, whoa,” Jeong interjects. “Leave the short out of this!”
(For reference, Jeong is 5-foot-5, Hart is between 5-2 and 5-4 and Cannon is 6 feet tall.)
Hey, all is fair in love, war and “The Masked Singer” guesses, and height needs to be taken into account here, Ken.
Here’s the official description for tonight’s episode, which will feature the debut of Dalmatian and the other Group B contestants, Queen of Hearts, Mallard, Banana Split (which is a two-celeb costume) and Cupcake:
