The Masked Singer season 4 is underway, and the 5 remaining contestants from “Group B” are taking the stage for a second performance on Wednesday, October 14 for the Group B Playoffs round of the competition. One of those contestants is the Baby Alien.
So, what do we know about the Baby Alien so far, and who do we think might be performing from behind the mask? Read on to find out.
BEWARE OF EPISODE 4 SPOILERS BELOW.
‘The Masked Singer’ Baby Alien Clues So Far
The Baby Alien’s “sneak peek” clue, released ahead of the season premiere, teased, “All you have to do is look to the stars.”
FOX’s description for the season says that “The Season Four celebrity contestants combined have sold more than 281 million records worldwide, appeared in more than 5,120 episodes of television and 204 films, appeared in five Super Bowls, have four stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and one of Time magazine’s 100 Most Influential People.” Which of those notable accomplishments belongs to the person behind the Baby Alien mask?
A number of key visual clues stood out during the Baby Alien’s first animated clue package of the season, including a space ship shaped like a red sports car, the Liberty Bell, red roses, and a ninja turtle. The number 5 also seems to have significance to the masked celebrity, and he teased being a Broadway star who even appeared on “the Tony Awards stage.”
The Baby Alien speaks in a Eastern European accent which disappears when he sings, so it’s likely he’s putting it on to throw the judges and the audience.
For the episode 4 clue package, some visuals that popped out were a title card for “Babywatch,” a horse made of sand, a crown, a shark, and a hotdog stand.
Baby Alien said “I’ve been roasted before,” which made the judges wonder if he’s done a Comedy Central Roast. He also made reference to interaccting with “money-hungry sharks” – was he on Shark Tank?
The Baby Alien’s childhood clue was a toy fire truck. He told the judges and host Nick Cannon, “This particular toy is near and dear to my heart. But Joel McHale, you’re hot on my trail.”
Top Guesses for Baby Alien on ‘The Masked Singer’
Baby Alien sang “Faith” by George Michael for his Masked Singer debut, and the judges guessed he might be Ralph Macchio, David Schwimmer, or Freddie Prinze Jr.
Another good guess is Matthew Broderick, who starred in Ferris Bueller’s Day Off and has starred on Broadway.
The Baby Alien sang “It’s Time” by Imagine Dragons for his second performance. Guest judge Joel McHale guessed Eric Bana. Nicole Scherzinger guessed Sacha Baron Cohen or Jeff Dunham; Dunham is a comedian and puppeteer, and he attended Baylor.
Ken Jeong guessed Taylor Lautner because he was the baby of the Twilight cast and he played Sharkboy.
Jenny McCarthy said she thinks it’s a comedian, and we agree. The Baby Alien’s voice reminds us of comedian and actor Nick Kroll, who recently starred on Broadway in Oh, Hello! with John Mulaney.
UPDATE & MAJOR SPOILER ALERT: At the end of the night, the Baby Alien was voted off and eliminated. When he took off his mask, he revealed himself as former NFL quarterback Mark Sanchez.
New episodes of The Masked Singer season 4 air on Wednesday nights at 8/7c on FOX.
