“The Masked Singer” returned on November 6 with a bonus episode that featured the five contestants to make it through on the last show to air before the World Series break. Among this famous five was one star who was covered from head to toe in an elaborate costume that was dubbed Thingamajig. He soared with his version of “Rainbow” by Kacey Musgraves.
The Thingamajig had first appeared in week one when he wowed with a cover of The Commodores hit “Easy.” He impressed the four judges (Ken Jeong, Jenny McCarthy, Nicole Scherzinger, Robin Thicke) and won the audience vote. Ever since then, we’ve been trying to figure out the famous face hiding behind that mask. Keep reading for “The Masked Singer” spoilers, including the real name of the Thingamajig.
We are convinced that Thingamajig is NBA player Victor Oladipo. Don’t believe us? Well consider the following:
Oladipo started his NBA career with the Orlando Magic in 2013. Prior to his first performance, Thingamajig, who stands 7 feet tall in his costume, was seen doing a bit of magic and held up a pair of sneakers.
Thingamajig demanded that he not be referred to as “Chewbacca” even though he and the “Star Wars” character do “celebrate together.” Oladipo was born on May 4, which just happens to be “Star Wars” day (as in “may the force be with you”).
While we are convinced that Thingamajig is Oladipo, who is now a star player on the Indiana Pacers, we won’t know for sure until he is unmasked when he either wins the competition or is eliminated. What do you think? Sound off in the comments section and let us know if you agree with us.
