The Masked Singer had its most dramatic episode yet. Season 7 kicked off with some unexpected and head-turning moments. However, viewers had a feeling this moment was going to happen. Months ago, before the premiere, a report claimed that Ken Jeong walked off the stage during an unmasking.
According to a report, Ken blew up at the awkward reveal. He walked off the stage when Rudy Giuliani unveiled himself as the Jack in the Box on the Wednesday, April 20 episode. Fellow judge Robin Thicke followed him while Jenny McCarthy and Nicole Scherzinger playfully bantered with the celebrity contestant.
Ken Jeong walks off after shocking unveiling
Fans of The Masked Singer had a funny feeling this moment was coming. The latest episode teased that the Jack in the Box was one of the new masks that viewers hadn’t witnessed yet. They filmed this episode earlier in the season. Yet, it didn’t air until last night.
The Masked Singer was making headline news for its shocking unveiling. This episode became one of the most highly-anticipated events in the show’s history. Some feelings had mixed feelings about it. Unsurprisingly, Rudy Giuliani revealed himself as Team Bad’s Jack in the Box.
The celebrity panelists, the studio audience, and host Nick Cannon had an awkward reaction to seeing the former New York City mayor on stage. Ken Jeong looked visibly upset with the unveiling. He walked away the moment Giuliani performed one last time. Jeong turned to his fellow panelist, Robin Thicke, and said, “I’m done.” He then walked off the stage.
It’s unclear whether Jeong was over The Masked Singer forever or for that night only. Robin Thicke went to go look for Jeong. Meanwhile, Jenny McCarthy and Nicole Scherzinger remained in their seats to listen to Giuliani’s performance. Fans of the singing competition think Jeong disrespected the controversial political figure.

The Masked Singer viewers watched the drama unfold. Producers creatively edited it, so it didn’t focus as much on Jeong’s reaction. Yet, fans noticed and were upset with how he reacted to Giuliani’s unveiling. They think he should’ve remained professional and stayed to watch his performance instead of walking away. Some are even calling for his firing.
- “Lost respect for Kengon Jeong. Completely uncalled for.”
- “Ken just showed his a**! He should be removed from the show for that!”
- “Very disappointed in his actions hope Ken is DONE.”
- “Ken should be fired from #TheMaskedSinger.”
- “Not nice Ken. Isn’t about being inclusive.”
But other Masked Singer fans respected Jeong’s reason to leave. They think he should do whatever he feels comfortable doing. What are your thoughts on Jeong’s reaction? Do you think he should leave the show? Sound off below in the comment section.
