The Masked Singer Season 4 Episode 4 Recap
Joel McHale came back as the guest panelist, and the episode followed the theme of childhood. For this very reason, a clue pertaining to the contestant’s younger years was revealed after their performance. Serpent kicked things off with his amazing version of ‘The Bones’ by Maren Morris. In his clues video, the character stated that he was not very well off and that being on ‘The Masked Singer’ stage was a childhood dream come true for him. To make ends meet, he worked in retail and also did manual labor. We saw an ATM machine with the word “error” and a pink Cadillac as well. For Serpent’s childhood clue, a bottle of milk on 4 wheels was presented. Furthermore, he referenced the iconic ‘Got Milk?’ campaign. Jenny McCarthy felt it could Taye Diggs, whereas Joel McHale guessed that Serpent was Jesse Williams. Nicole Scherzinger went with Brian McKnight.
Then came Crocodile. We found out that his family was poor when he was a child. A suburban home with the number 5, the American flag, and a pirate flag is shown. Furthermore, his own father did not believe in him until Crocodile earned $100 (his first paycheck) by performing. The contestant sang ‘Toxic’ by Britney Spears, and everyone really loved his rendition. The childhood clue was a piñata of a baby crocodile, which contained baby dolphins inside it. Both Robin Thicke and Nicole Scherzinger guessed that Adam Lambert was behind the mask. Ken Jeong actually went with Lenny Kravitz, and the guest panelist thought that Crocodile could be Harry Connick Jr.
The third performance was by Baby Alien, who said that he had been roasted before and that his relationships were discussed publicly. He also encountered many money-hungry sharks and wanted to protect other “Baby Alien-ers” from the pitfalls he has faced in life. A reference was also made to ‘Baywatch.’ Visually speaking, we saw a UFO, a hot dog stand, and the beach. After his performance to ‘It’s Time’ by Imagine Dragons, the childhood clue was revealed: a toy fire truck. Joel McHale felt it was Eric Bana, whereas Ken Jeong thought it was Taylor Lautner. Nicole Scherzinger was befuddled between Sacha Baron Cohen and Jeff Dunham.
Next up was the ever so zany Whatchamacallit, who stated that he had experienced many rough patches in his clues video. At the height of his career, he received some pretty bad news about his mom, but she made him see that his dream was hers as well. The animation contained planes and balloons, and reminded the judges of the movie ‘Up.’ Then, Whatchamacallit sang ‘Money Maker’ by Ludacris ft. Pharrell Williams. The childhood clue was a book titled ‘Hairy Tales of the Whatcha Fam’ by Doodad Doohickey. In the end, Jenny McCarthy thought it was Cam Newton, whereas Robin Thicke felt that Terrell Owens was Baby Alien. Lastly, Ken Jeong guessed that Armie Hammer was behind the mask.
The Western themes continued in Seahorse’s clues video, where we saw a tavern called Under The Sea Saloon and Rodeo. There was also a sign that read “Place Your Bets.” The contestant revealed that this was not her first rodeo and that she did try to act like a hero when she was young. Unfortunately, she was not successful. After giving a rather moving performance to Celine Dion’s ‘My Heart Will Go On,’ her childhood clue was revealed. Nick Cannon was made to pop a balloon that had feathers inside it. As for the guesses, Kim Jeong thought it was Camilla Cabello, whereas Robin Thicke stuck with Bebe Rexha. Joel McHale felt it was Jessica Simpson.
It was then time for elimination, and Baby Alien was unmasked. It turned out that none of the panelists had hit the nail on the head: it was Mark Sanchez. The former NFL player said that being on the show was a great experience and that his son also knew the lyrics to all the songs he had performed on the stage. For his final act as Baby Alien, Mark Sanchez sang again, albeit unmasked.
The Masked Singer Season 4 Episode 5 Spoilers
With the playoffs of Group A and Group B completed, we will finally meet the contestants of Group C. They are Broccoli, Jellyfish, Lips, Mushroom, and Squiggly Monster. We suspect that they will be just as good, if not better, than the other performers who have already graced ‘The Masked Singer’ stage, and so, we are in for a treat. Dragon (Busta Rhymes), Gremlin (Mickey Rourke), Giraffe (Brian Austin Green), and Baby Alien (Mark Sanchez) have already been eliminated. As for who leaves the competition in the next episode, only time will tell.
There is also the matter of the competition between the judges for the Golden Ear trophy. So far, Robin Thicke, Nicole Scherzinger, and Jenny McCarthy are tied and have 1 point each. However, Ken Jeong still has to catch up. Will he make any strides in the next episode?
