Spoiler alert: Don’t read ahead if you haven’t watched Season 4, Episode 6 of “The Masked Singer,” which aired November 4 on Fox.
Bob Saget is not clamoring for a recount. The comedian may be disappointed that his time on “The Masked Singer” is over, but he will accept the results. (Scroll down to see his list.)
“I wanted to continue,” Saget told Variety. But my voice cracked a little, look, the audience voted. And I’m one of those people who takes the result when people say, “You know, you won’t come back.”
Saget took on the role of “Squiggly Monster,” which he admitted was tough to move around – but perhaps the safest outfit in the room. He said, “Squiggly’s head is like 30 to 40 pounds of COVID safety.”
“Nothing goes in or out, including the air,” he added. “So, that was the hardest part. I literally couldn’t see, then they were holding my hand – but they couldn’t find my hand because I had lobster claws in my upper hand and the bottom of it was strings. It was a kind of colored crab with a representation. All creatures on this planet. “
Saget said he’s been asked to perform in the past, “The Masked Singer,” but his busy schedule always got in his way. But with the COVID-19 pandemic halting his tour dates, Saget was eager to get back on stage.
He said, “I was supposed to be on tour now.” “I was supposed to be shooting a special in the next month or two. I gotta perform!”
But for Saget, who loves gossip, keeping the “masked singer” look a tough secret. He said, “I have a big trap, I keep talking.” “Few people sign a nondisclosure agreement, and they can’t tell the soul either. My wife couldn’t tell her family. I told one of my daughters, but I didn’t tell the other two. Everything is like the CIA.”
Even committee member Ken Jeong was kept in the dark, despite the fact that Saget also appeared in Jeong’s new buddy series, “I Can See Your Voice.”
Saget performed the Rolling Stones’ “Satisfaction,” a week after singing another classic rock song, “Have You Ever See the Rain,” directed by Creedence Clearwater Revival. Had he continued, Saget would have also practiced “Folsom County Blues” by Johnny Cash and “Should I stay or should I go” by The Clash.
The comedian said, “I’ve always sung.” I started doing comedy songs when I was 17 years old. After that I sang three or four songs in every special I did. Those two songs, “Satisfaction” and “Have You Ever Seen the Rain” I did with John Stamos, his band, and other well-known musicians. Really. It’s something I do and I like to do. “
Saget, who was already a friend of executive producer Craig Plestis, gave the highest marks in the production. “They are very thoughtful and cautious there,” he said. “And the wardrobe people, they’re just Team A. The reason it’s the first show is because they’re trying their best to do it right.”
Robin Thicke, Jenny McCarthy, Berg, and Ken Jeong find out he’s Saget, while Nicole Scherzinger goes with Gary Cole. Guest committee member (and season two winner) Wayne Brady, who opened the show with singing Maroon 5’s Memories, also discovered it was Saget.
“The first week they were playing the game and they were funny,” said Saget. “It was said it was Doctor Fauci and they guessed Brad Jarrett or Ray Romano. But they knew. I mean, I even heard Robin say, ‘Saget,’ and then I turned my head as Squiggly, looking at him. He wasn’t trying to force me to turn and look at him. I stupidly ditched my cover! ”
New this season, committee members are also competing for a “Golden Ear” award based on their first impressions of each compelling artist – and upon entering the episode, McCarthy, Berg and Scherzinger each received two points, Thicke got one, while Jeong so far has zero.
McCarthy and Wahlberg got a third point, and took the lead, choosing Saget as her first impression. Thicke also chose Saget as a first impression, giving him a second point. Jeong’s first impression was Fabio, while Scherzinger wrote “one of the Ying Yang twins.”
Saget joins previously revealed Season 4 contestants Wendy Williams (Lipps), Mark Sanchez (Foreign Baby), Brian Austin Green (Giraffe), Mickey Rourke (Grimlin) and Busta Rhymes (Dragon).
“I have more appreciation for Big Bird on ice than ever,” said Saget. “The only advice I have for other people doing the show in the future, be sure to go to the bathroom before you get dressed, that’s all I have to say. It’s not a space suit.”
