Word on The Masked Singer street is that Ken Jeong will not be gracing us with his judge duties in at least one episode this season and we are massively bummed about it. We live for his wild guesses and sassy quips, which are almost as addictive as the horrifying costumes we endure each episode.
Where is Ken Jeong on The Masked Singer and is this a permanent predicament?
Where is Ken Jeong on 'The Masked Singer'?
Have no fear! Not only is Ken Jeong's departure only temporary but he's totally OK. On Nov. 7, Ken tweeted out that he was, in fact, using a sick day. Hey, we all have to do it!
"Sadly, you won't be seeing my gorgeous face on this week's Masked Singer as I had Covid but thankfully I got better super quickly, thank you vaccines!"
We're super happy Ken is OK, but who could possibly fill in for him?
Ken also pointed out that the Nov. 9 episode is the "last appearance on the show" of their "dear friend Leslie Jordan," who sadly passed away on Oct. 24. 2022. Ken dedicated the episode to him.
Leslie Jordan's last appearance on 'The Masked Singer' will be as joyous as he was.
Beyond the usual quirky adorableness of Leslie Jordan, the show is also going to give him a proper send off in a lovely homage.
The tribute "features fun memories from Jordan's time on The Masked Singer, including when he pretended to be a new contestant, Soft Serve, and gave a little performance to go along with the ruse."
If there is one show that perfectly encapsulates the sweetly supportive and wonderfully bizarre personality of Leslie Jordan, it's The Masked Singer. We cannot wait to watch.
The Masked Singer airs on Wednesdays at 8 p.m. ET on FOX.
