Season 6 of “The Masked Singer” has been full of surprises. After legendary Grammy-winner Toni Braxton was eliminated after the third episode, it’s clear that critically acclaimed vocal artists are not safe on this stage.
But it was a comedian who was sent packing on last night’s shocking episode. After performing an interesting twist on the “Meet the Flintstones” theme song, Baby was selected for elimination after gathering the least amount of votes from the audience.
After learning that Baby had replaced Arnold Schwarzenegger in an action movie in one of the clue packages, Robin Thicke stuck with his first impression guess of Chuck Norris. Jenny McCarthy-Wahlberg changed her guess from Kurt Russell to Bruce Willis. Ken Jeong changed his guess from Hugh Jackman to celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay, and Nicole Scherzinger switched her guess from Michael Caine to James Corden.

Why Choose The Baby Costume?
Although “The Masked Singer” costumes are complex, they usually allow for plenty of versatility to give the performers inside the freedom to move and dance around on stage. Although some performers learn complicated choreography to accompany each song, Larry the Cable Guy chose the Baby costume so he wouldn’t have to.
“There was not really a lot of choreography that the Baby could do,” he explained. “So instead of having to put the costume on and go sit through choreography for a couple hours a day, I didn’t have to do that because I couldn’t move.”
He continued, “And I couldn’t walk really, so I had to shuffle everywhere I went. I just had a little bit of mobility, obviously with my arms, but as far as doing anything else — oh, and it was hot. So I’m glad I couldn’t do any choreography because I probably would have passed out.”
Fans were just as shocked as the judges to see Larry the Cable Guy as the judges were, and most of the comments were overwhelmingly positive.
“I never screamed out ‘WTF’ in a happy shocking way to a point I was laughing,” one fan wrote. “Dude ur my childhood & love everything u do.”
“That outfit was creepy, but I’m impressed with Larry’s singing!” another fan commented.
Another shared, “Absolutely loved seeing Larry the Cable Guy as Baby on Masked Singer, he is still so funny and entertaining.”
Even though he was eliminated early on in the competition, he is still proud of his run.
“I’ve kind of been slowing down you know, and I don’t want to be on the road as much,” he explained. “I want to spend time at the house, and so it really takes a lot of prying to get me out of the house to go do something. So it just shows how much fun the show is basically, because I went out there for nine days, 10 days. And that’s a good feat to do, as people that work with me know — if it’s not just a weekend and I’m not at home, I’m not doing it. So just the fact that they got me out of the house for 10 days, and it was everything they said it would be.”
“The Masked Singer” airs Wednesday nights on Fox.
