Is The Mallard really Garth Brooks?
On Wednesday’s The Masked Singer, which will see the final four Group B singers competing in the semifinals, panelist Ken Jeong believes that the celebrity behind the Mallard mask is the iconic country singer. Why? Because one of the clues pits the celebrity-in-question as one of Barbara Walters’ “Most Fascinating People.”
“Is it Garth Brooks?” Jeong asks, prompting a lively discussion among the rest of the panelists — including guest Cheryl Hines. And when they continue to discuss whether Brooks could be the one in the elaborate costume, the singer’s name transforms into a cheeky joke, all in good fun of course.
But Hines, who is a judge on Fox’s other singing competition show, I Can See Your Voice, has another idea on who could possibly be The Mallard: George Foreman.
“That’s fascinating,” Jeong quips, before host Nick Cannon acknowledges how wide-ranging the guesses are for this one: “This might be the craziest guess range ever.”
“Well, whoever you are, you have us stumped,” panelist Jenny McCarthy admits. So who is it?
