SPOILER ALERT: Don’t read ahead if you haven’t watched “The Masked Singer” Season 7, Episode 8, “The Mask of Least Resistance – Round 3,” which airs April 27 on Fox.
So I guess we’ll just pretend last week didn’t happen and move on. But Wednesday night’s unmasked celebrity was a bit controversial in its own way: Kirstie Alley, who has generated her own kind of notorious headlines in recent years, was unmasked in this week’s episode as Baby Mammoth – part from “Team Cuddly”.
For Baby Mammoth, one of the “Masked Singer” panelists got it right: Jenny McCarthy Wahlberg figured it was Alley. Robin Thicke thought it was Kirsten Dunst, Nicole Scherzinger named Rachael Ray and Ken Jeong guessed Reese Witherspoon.
Alley as Baby Mammoth performed Cher’s “The Shoop Shoop Song (It’s in His Kiss)” on Wednesday’s show; later, she also sang “Me Too” by Meghan Trainor. Last week Alley/Mammoth performed “Walkin’ After Midnight” by Patsy Cline.
A “mega clue” for Alley was a birdcage: “Well, I think all animals should be wild things. So I freed him and helped him escape. (Coincidentally, Alley once presented his crew with live birds, in birdcages, at a “Veronica’s Closet” wrap party.)
During last week’s episode, the Baby Mammoth revealed that “they told me I could do whatever I wanted here except poop on stage. So I’m going to take it as a really big win because even though you can poop in the circus, you’re not allowed on this show. I feel very good because even though I got a lot of money, I want to go for the gold!”
Previous panel guesses also included Sandra Bullock, Diane Keaton, Dianne Wiest, Nancy Kerrigan, Tonya Harding, Kathleen Turner and Suzanne Somers.
The episode was set in Alley as Baby Mammoth versus Space Bunny, in the duel. Alley/Mammoth began with “Me Too”, by Meghan Trainor, followed by Space Bunny with “Do You Really Want to Hurt Me”, by Culture Club.
Kirstie Alley as Baby Mammoth joins the roster of unmasked celebrities this season which also includes Rudy Giuliani as Jack in the Box, Duane “Dog the Bounty Hunter” Chapman as Armadillo, Jennifer Holliday as Miss Teddy , Penn and Teller as Hydra, Christie Brinkley as Lemur, Jorge Garcia as Cyclops, Jordan Mailata as Thingamabob, Duff Goldman as McTerrier and Joe Buck as Aries.
“The Masked Singer” entered Season 7 with 15 contestants, which were split into “The Good, the Bad and the Cuddly”. Costumes this season include THE GOOD: Ringmaster, Armadillo, McTerrier, Firefly, Frog Prince; THE BAD: Hydra, Ram, Jack in the Box, Cyclops, Queen Cobra; THE CUDDLE: Baby Mammoth, Thingamabob, Lemur, Space Bunny, Miss Teddy.
Season 7 nominees have 112 movie appearances, 15 Grammy nominations, eight Emmy nominations, seven Super Bowl performances, two Hollywood Walk of Fame stars, two world records, and an attempt to destroy democracy by plotting a coup and undermining the properly elected president. the United States.
In another change, the show’s panelists don’t appear to be competing for a “Golden Ear” trophy based on their first impressions of each masked performer (which McCarthy won twice, but Scherzinger won last season) this season.
