We knew it was coming. News broke back in February that Rudy Giuliani has been unmasked on The Masked Singer and judge Ken Jeong had walked off the stage (with Robin Thicke following). Last night, the episode finally aired, and while I imagine no one cares about the reveal, it’s interesting to see Jeong’s reaction.

If you’ve seen the show before (God help you, I’m sorry), Jeong is usually ebullient after the reveal because Jeong is an actor, and Jeong plays the part well. But he’s also a doctor who has been pushing back on COVID misinformation, and he’s also seen anti-Asian violence erupt over the last two years because of people like Giuliani.

While everyone else is celebrating during the reveal, Jeong’s face just falls flat. When Nicole Scherzinger looks over at him and asks, “Did you know?” he glumly says, “No. That’s not why we’re here.” (Jenny McCarthy, on the other hand, is Jenny McCarthy). You can watch the full reveal here, but here’s the part where Dr. Jeong walks off the stage and McCarthy and Scherzinger … well, dance in celebration.

Here is how the Internet reacted to both Jeong walking off, and McCarthy acting a fool.
