According to herself, Chrissy Teigen may be out of a job. The model, author, TV personality and Twitter queen was so excited to advertise her new series Bring The Funny on social media that she accidentally tweeted out the entire episode instead of a sneak peek. Well, at least it wasn’t an intern. They would be fired. One of the three famous judges? Probably not going to be fired. Almost definitely. Pretty certain. Good luck, Chrissy.

On Monday night, Teigen tweeted about her new comedy reality show, writing “GUYSSSSSS! so excited to share a clip of my new show BRING THE FUNNY!! Premieres TOMORROW, 10PM after AGT on @NBC!!!!” Name of show, tune in time, reference to America’s Got Talent, and great energy. From a promotional and marketing standpoint, this tweet doesn’t get much better. Too bad Teigen also included the ‘For Review Only’ YouTube clip, which in the world of TV means that it’s only to be seen by employees and not Teigen’s 11.3 million followers. The episode is even watermarked with Teigen’s name, so no chance to blame fellow Bring The Funny judges Kenan Thompson or Jeff Foxworthy.


Teigen quickly realized her mistake, or at least she quickly realized it after she was inundated with Twitter replies, DMs, and probably some really frantic phone calls from her manager, her agent, her boss at NBC, and maybe a very nice intern, who still has their job. Returning to the scene of the crime and tweeting about her mistake, Chrissy kept her sense of humour about the guffaw (you could say she brought the funny), writing “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.”

She also reiterated the tune-in time for those who didn’t watch the accidentally leaked episode, showing that 98 per cent of the time she’s a great employee. A great employee who also may need to speak with HR for a few reasons.


Teigen’s Twitter tirade continued with the celeb poking fun at fellow judge Kenan Thompson after the SNL actor went the safe route and opted to share a picture of the cast instead of a clip. Good call, Kenan.

 

While some Twitter followers thought that Teigen’s accidental upload may have been actually been done on purpose as a marketing strategy (it’s not a bad idea), Teigen was adamant that her tweet was accidental. Still, we think it did more to help ratings than to hurt them.
