‘SNL’ spear Try Guy cheating controversy, Ned Fulmer’s exit


Try Guys have tried hard enough that they were their own subject “Saturday Night Live” sketch at the weekend.

NBC’s comedy institution aired the scandal around the YouTube stars which parted ways with group member Ned Fulmer after an “internal review” of his “consensual workplace relationship,” according to a statement issued last week to the official Try Guy’s Instagram account. Fulmer’s exit made national news, and “SNL” didn’t miss the buzz about the former BuzzFeed stars.

In a skit that initially appeared to be political, “SNL” host Brendan Gleeson and cast member Ego Nwodim played a CNN correspondent and anchor, respectively, but Gleeson interrupted a White House broadcast to report the latest Try Guys- news.

“SNL” cast members Mikey Day, Andrew Dismukes and Bowen Yang portrayed the three remaining Try Guys Zach Kornfeld, Keith Habersberger, Eugene Lee Yang, who continued to slam the CNN report: “We’re not working with a white guy anymore , a wife guy, Try Guy Ned.”

Nwodim’s CNN host probably, like many people who encountered the Try Guy news this week, didn’t really understand the controversy or even who the Try Guys are.

“You have to remember the power dynamic,” Gleeson’s character nonchalantly told her. “He was an experimenter and she was a Food Baby.”

“The whole story is that your friend had a side chick and didn’t tell you?” Nwodim’s character eventually realized.

Yang and Day were on the verge of breaking character and laughing during the skit, which parodied recent videos from Try Guys about the scandal. In a later sketch about medieval Europe, Day once again appeared bordering on laughter.

The Try Guys, which boasts more than 8 million YouTube subscribers, began as a BuzzFeed web series in 2014 that chronicled Kornfeld, Habersberger, Lee Yang and Fulmer’s crazy exploits in trying new things — experiencing labor pain simulation, baking without a recipe , taste-testing everything on a fast food chain’s menu and driving under the influence (under professional supervision), to name a few. In 2018, the four left BuzzFeed and founded their own production company to continue the Try Guys brand.
