A new episode of The Masked Singer aired Wednesday, October 7, on Fox and another celebrity was eliminated.
One contestant that stood out and continued to make a huge impression on the panel — Nicole Scherzinger, Jenny McCarthy, Robin Thicke, and Ken Jeong — was the Giraffe. For their song choice this week, they switched it up and had everyone wondering who it could be.
As previously reported by The Inquisitr, they performed the Black Eyed Peas’ hit song “Let’s Get It Started” for their debut performance. Instantly, they had people assuming they may be a male rapper.
However, Wednesday night, Giraffe showed off more of their vocals while singing Kool & the Gang’s “Get Down on It,” which showcased their versatility.
For their first clue package, Giraffe said they have had a roller-coaster career that has been filled with ups and downs. They revealed “music is in their blood,” but when they tried to take a chance, they became a joke. There were also cars and racing references throughout.
For their second clue package, the Fox from Season 2 was shown, hinting they may have some sort of connection to Wayne Brady. They continued to say their life came crashing down and that everything “transformed in the blink of an eye.” At the end, a robin was sitting on the Giraffe’s shoulder.
The panel’s guesses then changed for Giraffe. Thicke initially said Vanilla Ice, while McCarthy said Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker.
When it came down to choosing who should stay in the competition, Giraffe received the least amount of votes and was announced as the next contestant to be leaving the show.
Before they were unmasked, host Nick Cannon asked the panelists one final time who they believed was singing underneath the costume.
Jeong guessed actor Shia LaBeouf as he has a tattoo of a giraffe and has been in a car accident.
Scherzinger said American race car driver Dale Earnhardt Jr. due to all the car crash references. He and his family also survived a plane crash, and she believed the No. 8 domino they were shown as a clue was the number of the car he drove.
McCarthy went with Seth Green, while Thicke stole one of her previous guesses and assumed it might be Barker. The “All the Small Things” hitmaker has also been in a plane crash, and Thicke thought the “blink of an eye” mention was a reference to his band.
Despite all their well-thought-out guesses, the panel all failed to guess Giraffe’s identity correctly. When they took off their mask, it was revealed to be actor Brian Austin Green.
Thicke appeared the most surprised as Green is a friend and neighbor. In fact, the robin on Giraffe’s shoulder in the clue package was supposed to symbolize Thicke. The pair formed a duo when they were kids called Think Twice.
