The panelists on The Masked Singer appear to be getting worse at guessing as the season goes on.
After they failed to guess Brian Austin Green last week despite getting very close, they didn't even get in the ball park of this week's reveal. Turns out the Baby Alien is former Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez. While the panel was guessing comedians and Broadway stars (thanks to the clue about the Tony Awards stage), they didn't even begin to approach a sports star. Sometimes football players also like theatre, and sometimes they also present awards at the Tonys in 2010. Who knew?
Mark did not explain why he went with the Eastern European accent for the character, but he did say that the best part of being on the show was getting to share the experience with his son, which is very cute. He also joked that Nicole Scherzinger is his "mom," since she and Jenny McCarthy were arguing about adopting the Baby Alien, and oddly that was less cute.
The Group B playoffs also featured performances from Serpent, Crocodile, Seahorse and Whatchamacallit. The only one with an obvious-feeling answer is Serpent. An awful lot of his clues seem to fit famed singer and actor Taye Diggs, but do they fit too well, perhaps? Do the Rent and Private Practice clues feel just a bit too obvious?
Seahorse showed off a truly incredible voice that the panel claims is the best voice they've heard, but they say that so often that it sort of ceases to mean anything at all. She sounds a lot like Tori Kelly to us (and to every commenter on Youtube) but we'll have to wait a couple of weeks to see her again. For the next two episodes, it's Group C's turn at bat.
