“The Masked Singer” reached the quarter-final stage of the competition on December 10 with six celebrities still in the hunt to win season 2. Competing for a place in the semifinal are the Butterfly, Fox, Leopard, Rottweiler, Thingamajig and Tree. Each is hoping to earn enough voters from the studio audience that they don’t end up in a showdown in front of the four judges (Ken Jeong, Jenny McCarthy, Nicole Scherzinger, Robin Thicke).
One of these contestants is head and shoulders above the others, literally. That is the Thingamajig. He has scored with each of his first four performances. He was the stand-out on week 1 with his cover of The Commodores hit “Easy.” He returned in week 4 and impressed us with his version of the Kacey Musgraves hit “Rainbow.” He changed it up yet again in week 5 with a lively rendition of The Temptations “Ain’t Too Proud to Beg.”
He was at risk in week 8 after singing “Haven’t Met You Yet” by Michael Bublé but saved himself with his cover of “Caught Up” by Usher. That secured him a place in the quarterfinal. We’ve been busy since then trying to figure out just who is the Thingamajig. Keep reading for the fifth of this week’s “The Masked Singer” spoilers.
We are absolutely certain that the Thingamajig is Victor Oladipo, the Indiana Pacers all-star guard. Don’t agree? Just consider the following:
The Thingamajig is the tallest contestant; Oldaipo is just under 6 and a half feet tall.
In his clues video, the Thingamajig was seen doing a bit of magic and held up a pair of sneakers. Oladipo began his NBA career in 2013 the Orlando Magic. He played with them for three seasons, did one with the Oklahoma City Thunder, and has been with the Pacers since 2016.
The clues video referenced two of those teams with the line: “What’s that he has? A magic case? Come on you all, keep up the pace!”
The Thingamajig insists that we don’t call him “Chewbacca” even though he and the “Star Wars” character do “celebrate together.” Oladipo was born on May 4, which is better known as “Star Wars” day (as in “may the force be with you”).
Do you agree with us about the real name of the Thingamajig? If not, who do you think is hiding inside the Thingamajig costume? Sound off in the comments section below.
