While everyone was anticipating the Super Bowl I was waiting up for the real show to start - the season 3 premiere of The Masked Singer. How can you not love this show? It's so bad it's good. Last night kicked off with the Group A contestants. There are so many people on this show we are grouping them now. Fun Fact: The 6 contestants on this episode have been featured in a combined 9 Super Bowls. Let's dive in.
Panelist Picks: John Cena, Gronk, Jason Momoa.
My Pick: This is Gronk. Listen to the voice. The hint was a clam? It's him. If I had money to gamble I would put all of it on this pick.
Panelist Picks: Joey McIntyre, Donny Wahlberg, Zac Efron.
My Pick: Turtle has the worst costume but the best voice of the night. Can't decide if this is Jesse McCartney or someone from a 90s boyband. Both parties would be desperate enough to be on this show.
Panelist Picks: Howard Stern, David Spade, Joel McHale.
My Pick: Congrats Llama! You're the first contestant to wear a strap on! This show is so progressive. Everyone saying this is Howard Stern should stop talking. Not even he would stoop this low. My money is on someone like David Spade, maybe? I'm stumped on this one. If you have any ideas please share with the class.
Panelist Picks: Dolly Parton, Mary J. Blige, Dionne Warwick.
My Pick: A grown woman is inside a pink monster costume.I just feel bad. This performance wasn't that memorable which says a lot given the premise of this entire show. I really don't want this to be Chaka Khan but Twitter says it is and I have no choice but to believe.
Panelist Picks: Johnny Knoxville, Steve-O, Floyd Mayweather.
My Pick: I was immediately attracted to Robot because he covered Lenny Kravitz. I recognize that's a me problem. I'm getting BIG Lil Wayne vibes. A small skateboard was a clue and nobody forgets Lil Wayne's rock phase. And although this 100% sounds like Lil Wayne I'm thinking there is NO WAY he would go on this show.
Panelist Picks: Jordin Sparks, Iggy Azalea, Kelly Rowland.
My Pick: This is the first time the show has given us a sob story. Kangaroo is a survivor and standing up to bullies. I can't make fun of this one right now but stay tuned. I'm betting it's Iggy Azalea. She's from Australia, constantly gets roasted on the internet, and is very tall just like this giant Kangaroo.
If you get kicked off the premiere episode of The Masked Singer are you really the loser? I don't think so. Let's see who couldn't make it past the first round…..
NO! Not Lil Wayne! I cannot believe Gronk beat out Weezy in the first round. I have seriously underestimated this show's budget. I thought someone like Tunechi was better than this but I was wrong. The guessing game just got a little bit more difficult but I welcome the challenge. See you next week.
