Chance The Rapper to host MTV’s “Punk’d” reboot
Chance The Rapper has been announced as the new host of “Punk’d.”
Chance The Rapper has been named the new host on MTV’s rebooted celebrity prank show, “Punk’d.”
The rapper announced the news via Instagram with an official teaser for the new season of the show, which will exclusively air on Quibi. He captioned the post, “I got a new job. I’m hosting PUNK’D on @quibi NO ONE IS SAFE.” In the video, you see Chance playing a prank on Megan Thee Stallion. The prank involves a gorilla and you can clearly see that Megan is scared out of her mind.
In a press release, Chance said “‘Punk’d’ is one of MTV’s most iconic franchises. I grew up watching this show and it’s surreal to be in the driver’s seat this time around on Quibi.”
This time around, “Punk’d” will be comprised of episodes that are “bite-sized cuts.” The full list of celebrities that were pranked will be released soon. The new episodes air on April 6 on the Quibi streaming service.
“Punk’d” was originally created by Ashton Kutcher and Jason Goldberg and aired on MTV from 2003 to 2007. The show returned to MTV for one season in 2012 and then went to BET in 2015. Many artists like Beyoncé, Bow Wow, Mya, OutKast, Tyra Banks, and Brandy have all been pranked on the hit show.
Chance is no stranger to being in front of the cameras. He most recently served as a judge on the Netflix music competition series “Rhythm + Flow” alongside Cardi B and T.I. He has also hosted “Saturday Night Live” twice, once being both the host and musical performer. Chance also hosted a special episode of the “Late Late Show” back in December.
Chance is also set to headline to the 2020 NBA All-Star game halftime show in his hometown of Chicago, Illinois. He will serve as an ambassador, partnering with the Chicago Bulls for fan engagement and other programs.
Congrats to Chance The Rapper on his new endeavor!
