'The Masked Singer': Whatchamacallit eliminated and revealed as Lonzo Ball, fans surprised Ken Jeong got it right
'Not sure what's more shocking.... Lonzo Ball being a contestant or Ken Jeong being right about guessing it was Lonzo Ball,' a fan wrote
Whatchamacallit has left 'The Masked Singer' building. The "tall treat" as Nick Cannon described him on Wednesday night's episode was revealed as Lonzo Ball. For the unversed, he's a professional basketball player with the New Orleans Pelicans of the National Basketball Association. On a related topic, his brother LaMelo Ball was just drafted by The Charlotte Hornets in the NBA. Coming back to the show, the Whatchamacallit was the lowest voted masked celebrity on Wednesday's episode. He delivered a very entertaining rap performance on 'Lean Back' by Terror Squad, and everyone on the judges' panel including guest judge Cheryl Hines was on their feet, grooving along to the bars that Whatchamacallit was belting out with complete ease.
When it came time to guess his identity after the performance, Nicole Scherzinger aka 'Sherlock Scherzy' thought it could be NBA player Carmello Anthony because of his height and the basketball clues. However, Cheryl Hines didn't quite lean into the theory that the Whatchamacallit necessarily had to be an athlete because of the height. She went along with JB Smoove as her guess for the masked celebrity. Ken Jeong, on the other hand, was sure that it was Lonzo Ball under the mask and had a whole explanation to back his claim up. Robin Thicke, who's also a judge, felt that Ken for once might just be right. Ken's wrong guesses have been a very entertaining element of this show, everyone loves him for that. That is one of the reasons FOX gave him a whole another show 'I Can See Your Voice' to host solo and he's also the only judge from 'TMS' who's also on 'The Masked Dancer' that premieres at the end of December.
Whatchamacallit was unmasked and it indeed turned out to be Lonzo Ball and the internet went into a frenzy about Ken getting it right. "Well look at Ken with another good guess. Everybody looked shocked. Lol #WhatchamacallitMask #TheMaskedSinger #MaskedSinger" tweeted a fan. "Ken was right!!!!!!! Good job Ken!! @kenjeong #TheMaskedSinger" wrote another. "I can't believe that Ken was right. Holy Shit.#TheMaskedSinger" tweeted another. "Not sure what's more shocking....
