Ken Jeong, a panelist on The masked singer, took on the role of host in the latest game show of Fox’s singing contest I can see your voice.
Jeong, speaking on Contenders TV of Deadline: Documentary + Awards Season Unscripted Event, said he wanted to single out Fox’s latest Korean adaptation of The masked singer and called it more of an “emotional roller coaster” than his other job, and that’s designed to help applicants earn “life-changing” money.
The show sees contestants attempting to win a prize if they can tell the difference between good and bad singers, without ever hearing them sing a note. Helping the contestant navigate through series of lip-syncing challenges, comedic hidden clues, and true or false evidence will be a panel of famous comedians / experts and a musical superstar.
Jeong, who produces alongside showrunner James McKinlay and Craig Plestis, admitted it was much harder to be a host than just a panelist “in terms of cracking”.
He added that filming during the pandemic was a “fragile” situation, but approached it with a “Zen mindset” and shouted out the work being done by the Covid-19 team at WorkCare.
The show was recently renewed for a second season, and Jeong promises the second season will be “even better” than the first. “There are more features and more twists that we’re adding,” he says. “We really looked at the heart and soul [of the show]. “
Check back on Monday for the panel video.
