America’s favorite guessing game continues! The Masked Singer: Season Four Group C has entered the playoff rounds!

Last week, Emmy-nominated talk show host Wendy Williams was unmasked as the Lips! Tonight, the Broccoli, the Jellyfish, the Mushroom, and the Squiggly Monster faced off for a spot in the Group C Finals! Which performers stepped up to the plate? Did the Masked Singer panel (Ken Jeong, Nicole Scherzinger, Robin Thicke, and Jenny McCarthy Wahlberg) correctly deduce the eliminated singer’s identity? Read on to find out!

After Nick Cannon made his weekly entrance, a mysterious guest star panelist crashed the show. Dressed up as a TV, he sang Maroon 5’s “Memories,” and I immediately deduced that it was Season Two champion Wayne Brady. It turns out that I was correct, and it was the Let’s Make a Deal host (and the artist formerly known as the Fox Mask).

As Wayne took his seat, the Mushroom Mask’s clue package contained several Mean Girls-related clues. Tonight, the Mushroom performed Cher’s “If I Could Turn Back Time,” and I initially guessed it was the original Aaron Samuels — actor Jonathan Bennett. While I might be wrong, I thought that the last note was phenomenal. Nick asked the Men in Black to bring a magic lamp that contained a clue. Mushroom’s clue was a red strawberry-flavored Jello brain. Ken guessed his Community co-star Donald Glover, while Nicole guessed Adam Lambert. Wayne Brady thought it was Jaden Smith due to his connection with the popular Facebook Watch series: Red Table Talk. 

While Broccoli and Mushroom allied, he was the next person to face the audience! His clue package focused on Goodfellas and “the Big Cheese.” He sang Lionel Richie’s “Hello,” and it immediately clicked: Paul Anka. “The Big Cheese” could be either the late Frank Sinatra or Michael Jackson as Anka wrote songs for both of them. Broccoli Mask’s magic lamp contained a roulette table. Nicole Scherzinger guessed Wayne Newton, while Ken Jeong still guessed Martin Short. However, jenny McCarthy Wahlberg thought it was Jason Alexander. 

As The Masked Singer panelists revealed their dream magic powers, the Squiggly Monster took the stage. After a patriotic-themed clue package, they sang Rolling Stones’ “I Can’t Get No Satisfaction.” The vocals reminded me of Lenny Kravitz, but I could be wrong. The Squiggly Monster’s magic lamp contained a giant teddy bear! Jenny McCarthy Wahlberg guessed Ted Danson, while Robin Thicke thought it was David Hasselhoff. However, both Ken Jeong and Wayne Brady assumed it was former Vice President Al Gore. The Monster also gave Nick a top hat! 

The Jellyfish was the final performer of the evening! This super-competitive performer stated that the nerves were a problem, and she was without her support system: her family. Tonight, she sang Patsy Cline’s “Crazy,” and she delivered a fantastic performance, according to Jenny. Wayne Brady even predicted that she could make it to the end of the season if she kept evolving. Her clue was a tiger statue. Robin thought it was Sofia Richie. Meanwhile, Ken Jeong guessed Lana Condor. Guest panelist Wayne Brady thought it was Halle Balley.

Sadly, we had to say “Goodbye” to Squiggly Monster! Before we got to see who he was, the panel got to see their first guess. Jenny and Robin picked out Bob Saget as their first impression and stood by their original guess. Ken thought it was Fabio, but changed it to Bob Saget. Nicole guessed it was one of the Yin-Yang Twins. She changed it to Gary Cole. Wayne Brady guessed it was Bob Saget!

It turned out that Jenny and the guys were right, SQUIGGLY MONSTER was BOB SAGET!!!
