bye Bye Baby!
And just like that, the curtains on “Baby, Nightmare Musical” have closed. The quirky character was eliminated Wednesday and the panel’s first impressions and final hints were revealed.
Thicke doubled down on his original instincts, “Walker, Texas Ranger” star Chuck Norris. Scherzinger turned his first thoughts about actor Michael Caine to “Late Late Show” host James Corden. Jeong dropped his first idea of ”The Wolverine” Hugh Jackman for Ramsay. McCarthy traded actor Kurt Russell for Willis.
But when Baby took off his mask, he revealed himself as comedian Larry the Cable Guy.
“are you not entertained?” Larry the Cable Guy exclaimed, exposing the cannon.
“We told him so many times and now he finally shows up in a kid’s costume,” joked Cannon. “Maybe in the first season you guys didn’t say Larry the Cable Guy.”
During the big reveal, McCarthy beats himself for not guessing correctly. “We did a movie together,” she said. “And I know you raised your family on a tour bus and it still didn’t click there.”
