For the first time, two celebrities will embark on undercover journeys as they search for undiscovered talent in their own fields, on two special episodes of Undercover Boss. “Celebrity Undercover Boss” will feature Darius Rucker on Friday, May 12, and chef and restaurateur Marcus Samuelsson on Friday, May 19. (Rucker and Samuelsson were disguised with state of the art prosthetic makeup, so they would not be recognized, despite their fame.)
“I've been in the music business for a long time, and this is an experience I will never forget,” shares Rucker of the multiple days of going undercover for the taping. “Our industry is all about cultivating and sharing great music, so having the opportunity to go undercover and authentically participate in an artist’s early days was just incredible.”
Darius travels to Austin, Texas on an undercover journey to discover the next great musical acts. During his time undercover, Darius runs an open mic night, works as a roadie, and strolls along Austin’s famous Sixth Street in search of standout street performers, on Undercover Boss, Friday, May 12 at 8/7c on CBS.
