 What You Don’t Know About Ken Jeong

Born to South Korean immigrants in Detroit, Ken Jeong grew up and attended high school in Greensboro, North Carolina. It seems as if he was destined for success from the start, as the self-described “popular geek” very much excelled in academics (via The Washington Post). Before graduating at the early age of 16 years old (yes, 16!), Jeong participated in numerous extracurriculars including competing for the Quiz Bowl team, playing violin in the orchestra, and participating in student council (via Greensboro.com).

However, it turned out that his talents weren’t the only highlights of his high school career. According to The Washington Post, Jeong also participated in a mock male beauty pageant to appoint the next “Mr. Buccaneer” at his high school, where the then-16-year-old reportedly posed in his swim trunks for the swimsuit competition. “That was where I discovered my own comedy bug,” Jeong told NPR. “I was posing like Arnold Schwarzenegger and just doing all these things and I got a standing O. And, I ended up singing a Lionel Richie song, The Commodores’ ‘Three Times a Lady’ on piano, and that got another standing O.” Todos los regalos y muestras gratis, promociones, productos gratis, cupones descuento, sorteos, concursos, ofertas España del 2022 Muestras gratis y regalos
