Chrissy Teigen Accidentally Shares Entire First Episode of New Show Bring the Funny
The model and cookbook author, 33, is set to be a judge on the comedy competition series, which premieres Tuesday on NBC. And she’s so excited she accidentally shared the entire first episode instead of just a clip!
“GUYSSSSSS! so excited to share a clip of my new show BRING THE FUNNY!! Premieres TOMORROW, 10PM after AGT on @NBC!!!!” she wrote Monday, right before friends and fans began chiming in letting her know of the snafu.
“Uhh that’s a whole episode, my dude,” one wrote, while a second praised the upside of the mistake, tweeting, “Can’t tell if this is intentional? I mean, @chrissyteigen is a pretty savvy person … 🧐 Either way, kinda great publicity.”
Another reply saw the Lip Sync Battle host ask “Why r u yelling at me 😦” when the user let her know the “FOR REVIEW ONLY” text and watermark was a hint but lauded what he perceived as “a viral marketing trick” that was “working,” since he’d never heard of the show.
Teigen posted a follow-up tweet after the kerfuffle, addressing the (now-deleted) full episode clip by joking, “Well it looks like I have been fired for posting the whole thing thank u all for your kind texts and DMs please send job opportunities to same number.”

In a recent interview with GoodHousekeeping.com, Teigen indeed called her costars “hands-down the best group of people I’ve ever gotten a chance to work with.”
In particular, she praised fellow judge Jeff Foxworthy as “the unexpected love of my life.”
“I never would have guessed how much I could love this man,” Teigen said. “His family is incredible. Our lives couldn’t be more different. In commercial breaks, I love hearing him talk about plowing corn, or his life on the farm.”
