Nick Cannon has got some jokes as a father of 12, teasing “the mother of all game shows” yesterday (March 7). With Kevin Hart hosting, Cannon, 42, sat in the hot seat in front of an audience as he was presented contestants who want to have his baby.
Cannon teased the trailer of the game show, Who’s Having My Baby With Nick Cannon, on Instagram with the cheeky caption: “We’re expecting… a new show.” In the video, Cannon has a big smile on his face while Hart tells him, “You’re gonna get some contestants that wanna have your baby.” Several women appear in the teaser clip, in which Cannon also jokes about his selection when he says, “Eeny, meeny, miny, [moe].”
Today, the Masked Singer host revealed that the show isn’t real — thank God — but actually will be a show titled Celebrity Prank Wars. Cannon revealed that Hart will be joining him on the series, which debuts on April 6 on E!. He gave a first look at what to expect of the show in which “besties”will be pranking each other. Featured celebrities in the clip include Joel McHale, Tiffany Haddish, Taraji P. Henson, Lil Jon, Chance The Rapper, Killer Mike and Ludacris. Watch the big reveal below:
Following the success of Ashton Kutcher’s iconic Punk’d series, which ran for 11 seasons since 2003, Cannon is giving his version a shot. As we previously reported, Kutcher said he has no interest in reprising his iconic prank show. “I have friends again,” Kutcher said last July. “For a long time, I would go out and like, nobody would want to hang out. They were like, ‘I am not messing with him.’ So now I have friends again — it’s nice to have friends.”
Kutcher tormented A-listers including Justin Timberlake, Justin Bieber, Kanye West and Beyoncé. The show’s first prank was set at singer Justin Timberlake’s home, where he was led to believe that government agents were seizing his home and valuables because of unpaid income taxes. To help the pranks go along, Kutcher enlisted funnymen Dax Shepard, B.J. Novak and Bill Hader, among others.
