Before their identity was revealed Ken Jeong, 52, wearing a silver sequined jacket, thought the duo might be Kim and Khloe Kardashian inside, while Robin Thicke, 44, said he was getting more of a ‘Kendall/Kylie vibe.’

‘I think it is (Scott) Disick and Rob Kardashian,’ quipped actor Joel McHale, 49, who appeared on the show as a guest panelist.

The show’s host Nick Cannon, 40, told them their guesses were all over the place.

The judges were stunned when Honey Boo Boo, 16, and Mama June, 42, then got out of the giant Beach Ball mask wearing tie-dyed shirts and waved to the crowd.

Nick asked them what it was like being inside the giant Beach Ball costume and Honey Boo Boo told him, ‘It was definitely very hot’.

She also said that they had to move the ball’s mouth while making sure they didn’t roll off the stage.

‘It was a lot,’ said the 16-year-old reality star, who said that she was in front of the ball. ‘You know I got to be the star of the show.’

Jenny McCarthy, 49, asked them about one of their clues mentioning being apart.

‘I was in my addiction,’ said Mama June. ‘I was away from my kids for two years. Now, I’m fixing to celebrate two years clean. So this is the first project outside of our show that we have done together. It feels kind of nice.’

Mama June added: ‘I cried, that was why I missed the first line. I always do whenever she performs.’

Nick thanked them for being on the show and sharing their experiences with them. Then they sang Miley’s song unmasked dancing with Nick on the stage.

The Thanksgiving-themed episode titled Giving Thanks started with Joel coming on the stage eating a turkey leg. He tried to hand it to Nick, but he said he didn’t want it because he was vegan.

‘This is the first time I’ve seen a ham eat a turkey,’ joked Robin.

Mallard took the stage first. Before he came out, he shared clues that he rose to fame as part of a famous family and that he had been scrutinized over things his family had said.

He sang Play Something Country by Brooks & Dunn. The song he said had a specific meaning to him because once Luke Bryan asked him to get on stage and sing this song, but he couldn’t do it because he didn’t know the words. Mallard said his performance was payback for that screw up.

After he sang, Jen told him he had ‘moves like Jagger.’

A bunch of balloons with a turkey leg dropped with an additional clue about Mallard – a crown.

Jen said it made her think of Hollywood royalty. She guessed that it might be Billy Ray Cyrus. Robin thought it might be Kiefer Sutherland. Nicole guessed Jack Osbourne.

‘We could just stop all the guessing and he could just tell us who he is,’ cracked Joel.

Then the show aired a video message for Mallard from Chris Pratt, 42. Chris, who was covered in mud, said that he met Mallard a while ago when the two of them went out ‘catching frogs.’ He then asked him ‘any chance you can send someone to come pick me up. I’ve been waiting a while.It’s muddy in this swamp. Send help Mallard.’

Caterpillar took the stage next. For his clue, he said that he didn’t know his whole family growing up and when he became a telemarketer he called them over and over but was too scared to say hello. He said he finally connected with them and they were welcoming.

Wearing a giant yellow costume with pink fur and braces that had six hands and six legs, Caterpillar sang It’s Gonna Be Me by NSYNC.

When Caterpillar left the stage he was thankful that Jenny didn’t push the reveal button.

The next performer was the Queen of Hearts. She shared clues about her identity before she took the stage that the press was very critical of her.
