Next up is the Baby Alien. This is the first character to have a moving mouth. The Baby Alien is ready for a “rebirth” after being “stuck in second gear for a while.” He was once in a theater every week and mentions the Tony Awards, but he’s since become a “second thought.” The Baby Alien sings “Faith” by George Michael. He tells Nicole and Jenny that he is a big fan of them. Jenny guesses Ralph Macchio because of the karate clue. Nicole throws out David Schwimmer’s name, while Ken picks Freddie Prinze Jr.

The glamorous seahorse performs after the Baby Alien. She admits she’s been “trapped by insecurities and shyness.” Her clue package has a whole western vibe. She’s ready to show off the “dauntless diva within.” The Seahorse belts out Rihanna’s “Only Girl (In The World.” Nicole thinks we may be “looking at the winner.” The guesses include Halsey, Hailee Steinfeld, and Bebe Rexha.

Nicole guesses Swizz Beatz, while Ken goes with Damian Lillard. Robin throws out Tyler, The Creator.

The Serpent hits the stage after the Whatchamacallit. He’s interested in musicology and medicine. He’s also been a troublemaker in the past, but his dad saved him.
