The final group of contestants on the Masked Singer made their debúts on Wednesday, but the night’s unmasking left some of the judges rather speechless.
Panelists Ken Jeong, Jenny McCarthy, Nicole Scherzinger and Robin Thicke met with Baby Mammoth, Jack in the Box, The Prince, Space Bunny and Queen Cobra for the very first time, as they made initial guesses about who could likely be under the last costume batch.
But after the panel and studio audience had voted for their favorite performance of the night, Nick Cannon revealed that Jack in the Box got the fewest counts of votes and therefore would be unmasking.
The panel stayed unmoved from their original guesses, though Scherzinger changed hers to the Today show’s Al Roker. But to the surprise of everyone, when Jack in the Box took off their mask, former New York City major and former US president Donald Trump’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani, who was suspended from practicing law in New York last year after a court had discovered he manufactured “demonstrably false” statements about Trump’s 2020 election loss, appeared.
“This is definitely something I never would have guessed,” Thicke said. While McCarthy claimed she “had no idea” about who Giuliani is, Jeong stood straight-faced with both arms folded. McCarthy decided it was a great thing to jump up and down as Giuliani performed unmasked, but Jeong simply walked off, muttering “I’m done.” Scherzinger and McCarthy remained at the judges’ panel.
