Let’s judge ‘The Masked Singer’ judges: Who’s the best guesser after 5 episodes? You may be surprised!

Over the course of the first five episodes of Fox’s reality TV show “The Masked Singer,” Nicole Scherzinger, Ken Jeong, Jenny McCarthy and Robin Thicke have shown their competitive spirit by making their best guesses about who’s behind the various masks. While some of the costumed characters’ true identities were quite obvious to guess based on the clues, others were complete shockers. Which of the four regular judges on “The Masked Singer” has the best track record so far? You may be surprised by the results. Scroll down for a refresher on all of the judges’ individual guesses.

In Episode 1 the Hippo was revealed to be Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown.
Who guessed correctly? No one
Scherzinger’s guess: Basketball star Allen Iverson
Jeong’s guess: Football player Deion Sanders
McCarthy’s guess: Football player Deion Sanders
Thicke’s guess: Football player Odell Beckham Jr.

In Episode 2 the Pineapple was revealed to be comedy legend Tommy Chong.
Who guessed correctly? Only McCarthy
Scherzinger’s guess: Rock star Kid Rock
Jeong’s guess: Singing superstar Jimmy Buffett
Thicke’s guess: Boxing legend Sugar Ray Leonard

In Episode 3 the Deer was revealed to be NFL personality Terry Bradshaw.
Who guessed correctly? Both Scherzinger and Thick
Jeong’s guess: NFL Hall of Famer John Elway
McCarthy’s guess: Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning

In Episode 4 the Poodle was revealed to be actress/comedienne Margaret Cho.
Who guessed correctly? No one
Scherzinger’s guess: Fitness guru Jillian Michaels
Jeong’s guess: TV host Melissa Rivers
McCarthy’s guess: Stand-up comedian Kathy Griffin
Thicke’s guess: Television’s Judge Judy

In Episode 5 the Unicorn was revealed to be actress/author Tori Spelling.
Who guessed correctly? Only Jeong
Scherzinger’s guess: Actress/model Denise Richards
McCarthy’s guess: Reality TV star Lauren Conrad
Thicke’s guess: Olympian gymnast Gabby Douglas

Thus, after five episodes, all of the judges are tied at one correct guess and four wrong guesses. The most obvious celebrity to identify was Bradshaw, who was correctly predicted by two regular panelists as well as guest judge Joel McHale. Perhaps the biggest surprise was in the fourth week when Jeong failed to realize that his TV sister Cho from “Dr. Ken” was actually behind the Poodle mask. But Jeong made up for that huge mistake the following week when he was the only judge to correctly call that Spelling was hiding inside the Unicorn costume.
