Chrissy Teigen is ready to “Bring the Funny” in the new competition series with comedians Kenan Thompson and Jeff Foxworthy. The model, author, and TV personality was with “Extra” talking about the new series, her mini-me daughter Luna, and how she convinced Foxworthy to join Instagram.
How is Teigen adjusting to her role as a judge on “Bring the Funny”? “It's very hard… to tell someone something needs a little tweaking or that they're not as funny as they think they are.”
Chrissy posts tons of content of Luna and her brother Miles on social media, so how do the siblings get along? “She's very... ‘Don't take my things, don't touch my stuff.’ She's not there yet. But Miles loves her to death.” She added that Luna is “very vocal,” which all her fans saw when she posted a negotiation between her and Luna over candy, “She's fascinating to us. Everyone thinks their kid is a genius.”
Chrissy — a social media giant — now has Jeff sharing his life on Instagram, too! Teigen said, “He’s so good, he jumped right into it, shows exactly what people want to see. Obviously, he is a well-known comedian, but to see him on a tractor, what vegetables he picks, to see his home life is a different thing for people, and it’s different for him and he loves it and everyone loves it, too.”
Jeff told “Extra,” “She got me started on Instagram. I'm like, ‘No, Chrissy. I'm an old man. Old people don't do that stuff.’ She's like, ‘You can do this.’ Now, she's got me on Instagram every day.”
“Bring the Funny” premieres July 9 on NBC.
