Entertainment 'Masked Singer' Host Nick Cannon Teases Jenny McCarthy for Guessing Jamie Foxx – AGAIN (Exclusive Video)
'The Masked Singer': Raccoon Explains His Infatuation With Judge Jenny McCarthy
(Warning: This post contains spoilers for Wednesday's episode of "The Masked Singer.") "The Masked Singer" cut another contestant from its Season 5 lineup this week — and added a new one via the show's new "Wildcard" round. Raccoon was the unlucky competitor who got ousted by the crashing singer, Orca, and was eliminated and unmasked to reveal actor Danny Trejo. But Trejo was lucky in that he at least got to perform twice in front of his idol Jenny McCarthy before he was booted. And he made sure to tell her — repeatedly — just how much he loved her while in character as the playful Raccoon.
Nick Cannon makes his epic return as "The Masked Singer" host on Wednesday's episode of the Fox singing competition, with the artist formerly known as Bulldog not missing a beat in his first day back on the job. Yes, that means Cannon will resume mocking the judges' overused guesses in person again, rather than just through the money jar of "shame" he gave guest host Niecy Nash to charge them $50 with every time they threw out a name like "Jamie Foxx" while he was out for the first half of Season 5 recovering from COVID-19.
Welp, guess who Jenny McCarthy guessed the Robopine contestant was on Cannon's first day back, even though it meant adding another Grant to the jar?
Jen Shah’s Future on ‘RHOSLC’ Unclear Amid Legal Drama: Everything We Know
Jen Shah was indicted for her alleged role in a long-running telemarketing scheme while filming season 2 of The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City — and all eyes are on the Bravo star as she faces up to 50 years in prison. Bravo viewers met Shah during season 1 of RHOSLC, which filmed in 2019 and aired in 2020. She quickly became a polarizing character on the franchise, with fans questioning her job and need for several assistants. “People will come to me and I’ll invest in their companies, so we have a got a lot of different investments, all different kinds of things,” Shah said of her career on Access Hollywood’s “Housewives Nightcap” in November 2020. “I’ve been able to do it because what I’ve been able to carve out, the niche I’ve been able to carve out in the direct response marketing world.” Not long after production began on season 2 of RHOSLC, which also stars Meredith Marks, Whitney Rose, Heather Gay, Lisa Barlow and Mary Cosby, news broke on March 30 that Shah and one of her assistants who appeared on the show, Stuart Smith, were arrested in Utah. “Jennifer Shah, who portrays herself as a wealthy and successful businessperson on ‘reality’ television, and Stuart Smith, who is portrayed as Shah’s ‘first assistant,’ allegedly generated and sold ‘lead lists’ of innocent individuals for other members of their scheme to repeatedly scam,” Manhattan U.S. Attorney Audrey Strauss said in a press release.
"I do want to stick with someone that Nicole said, and I know that means I have to participate another $50 to the jar that you gave us," McCarthy says in TheWrap's exclusive clip from tonight's episode, which you can view above. "So I'm going to go once again with Jamie Foxx. He does sound a little like Jamie, he danced a little bit like Jamie. Jamie does have many alter egos, so I do feel confi– you don't feel confident, Nick?"
"Yeah, I just, because you guys always say Jamie Foxx," Nick says teasingly, shaking his head at a celeb who has been guessed repeatedly by McCarthy and her fellow judges Robin Thicke, Ken Jeong and Nicole Scherzinger since Season 1 of "The Masked Singer."

"Well he's gotta end up some day!" she says.
"I'm with Jenny," Nicole added. "Because he's won an Oscar, he's won a Grammy — but he's not won the Golden Mask Trophy."
Scherzinger had Cannon there.
"That is the one thing Jamie Foxx has not won," Nick said, laughing.
