“The Masked Singer” season 6 is making history in more ways than one. There is the introduction of the “Take It Off Buzzer,” which allows the judges to halt the performance if they are convinced they know the name of the famous face inside the mask. And this marks the first time that there is a costume that is a human, albeit an over-sized infant with one tooth.
The Baby is one of the two Wildcards who debuted on the second episode of the super-sized premiere. He replaces Mother Nature (Vivica A. Fox) who was sent packing at the start of the show on September 23. Before Baby sang a note, we thought Jack Black was hidden inside this elaborate costume but changed our mind when we saw him perform. Keep reading for all “The Masked Singer” spoilers, including the answer to the question “Who is Baby”?
Baby made his debut on episode 2 with a cover of “You’re the First, the Last, My Everything” by Barry White and returned in episode 4 to sing the catchy theme tune “Meet the Flintstones.” We remain convinced that the Baby is the stand-up comedian Larry the Cable Guy. Consider the following:
As a group, this season’s contestants have taken home 27 Grammys from 85 nominations. Larry has contended twice for Best Comedy Album. The second of these came for a recording of his show with three other funny fellows: Bill Engvall, Jeff Foxworthy and Ron White. They often perform together, a la the original Rat Pack.
Larry’s life on the road would explain the tour bus clue. And he has often spoken about bringing his family along for the ride, hence the photo of the Baby’s babies.
This year’s celebrities have also been nominated for 12 Razzie Awards; Larry accounts for five of those including one shared with judge Jenny McCarthy for Worst Screen Couple in “Witless Protection.”

The Baby bragged that he replaced Arnold Schwarzenegger in a movie; Larry starred in the direct-to-video sequel to one of Arnie’s biggest comedy hits “Jingle All the Way.”
Larry has enjoyed a lot more success as the voice of Mater the tow truck in the “Cars” series of films; his character’s shortcomings were referenced with the Baby’s line about failing driver’s ed. And the Baby copped to being in a lot of high speed car chases.
Group A: Baby | Bull | Hamster | Pepper | Skunk
Group B: Banana Split | Cupcake | Mallard | Queen of Hearts
