Bob Saget, 64, was the celebrity behind Squiggly Monster, one of the 16 mystery contestants in “The Masked Singer” Season 4, which is hosted by Nick Cannon, 39. The stand-up comedian, actor, television host and director was unveiled in episode 6, which aired on Fox on November 4, 2020.
In the episode, “The Masked Singer” Season 2 winner Wayne Brady, 48, joined panelists Ken Jeong, 51, Jenny McCarthy, 47, Robin Thicke, 43, and Nicole Scherzinger, 42. As Squiggly Monster, Saget sang “(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction” by The Rolling Stones.
The panel thought Squiggly Monster could be actor and producer Ted Danson, 72, actor and singer David Hasselfhoff, 68, or 45th United States vice president Al Gore, 72.
However, Danson, Hasselhoff and Gore were not mentioned in the panelists’ first impression guesses. Saget was the first impression guess of both Thicke and McCarthy while Jeong’s was Fabio Lanzoni, 61, who is mononymously known as Fabio, and Scherzinger’s was one of the Ying Yang Twins, the hip hop duo consisting of Eric “Kaine” Jackson, 41, and Deongelo “D-Roc” Holmes, 41.
After the announcement that Squiggly Monster was the contestant to be eliminated, McCarthy and Thicke stuck with their first impression guess. Both Jeong and Brady agreed while Scherzinger changed her mind and thought the mystery celebrity was actor Gary Cole, 64.
Saget was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA on May 17, 1956. He lived California, USA but loved to back to Philadelphia.
From 1987 to1995, Saget played Danny Tanner in the ABC sitcom “Full House,” which he reprised in the Netflix sequel “Fuller House” from 2016 to 2020. From 1989 to 1997, he hosted “America’s Funniest Home Videos.”
“I wanted to keep going,” Saget told Variety after being unmasked as Squiggly Monster in “The Masked Singer” Season 4 episode 6. “I deserved it but my voice cracked a bit and, look, the audience voted and I’m one of those people that accepts the result when people say, ‘You know, you’re not coming back.’”
The “Full House” alum told the publication that the head of the Squiggly Monster costume is “like 30 to 40 pounds of COVID safety.” Meanwhile, here is his interview with mixed martial arts color commentator and podcaster Joe Rogan, 53, months before “The Masked Singer” Season 4 premiere:
