Absolutely no one expected Larry the Cable Guy to be under that gigantic baby head. But this was precisely the reaction he was looking for when he agreed to be a part of this season of The Masked Singer. Known for his classic comedy show, the bearded celebrity had the judges’ jaws on the floor during his reveal. None of them had come even close to uncovering his identity, which in Larry’s book, was the ultimate victory.
The Masked Singer contestant packed his diapers and binkies after the end of Episode 4. His final song was the theme song of kid’s cartoon, The Flintstones. Before that, he performed Barry White’s “You’re the First, the Last, My Everything.”
Needless to say, Larry’s primary goal was to throw off the judges as best as he could. He topped off this technique by talking in different accents and inflections. His plan, in fact, worked so well that The Masked Singer judge Ken Jeong guessed Gordon Ramsay was behind the babyface. Meanwhile, fellow judges Jenny McCarthy went with Bruce Willis, Robin Thicke with Chuck Norris and Nicole Sherzinger with James Corden.
“I knew they wouldn’t guess me,” Larry the Cable Guy told Variety. “I knew they would be completely stumped because it’s totally something that they’ve never seen me do. And definitely, they’d never heard me in a different voice. I have a certain sound to my voice, but when I completely went British, and baby talk, and opera, and it worked.”
Larry the Cable Guy Used Time on ‘The Masked Singer’ to Entertain People
Before Larry the Cable Guy jumped into a giant baby costume, he knew he wasn’t going to make it too far in the competition. Better with knock-knocks than notes, the comedian decided to use his time on The Masked Singer to get a laugh out of the audience.
“One of my favorite things to do is sing operatic, goofy songs,” the former contestant shared. “I’ve been doing it since I was a kid, because it’s fun. I’m not a singer, so I figured, I’m just gonna have fun. I’m gonna do something completely different. It’s about entertaining people.”
As for his choice in costume, Larry the Cable Guy claimed that it was “the only thing I could fit in… I didn’t have a lot of mobility, but just the fact that it wasn’t tight, it was great. You know you could put the five members of the Commodores in that.”
Overall, The Masked Singer contestant was happy he answered the call to join the competition, even if it was for a short time.
“Other than I couldn’t move or breathe, it was a lot of fun,” Larry added.
