Performances and Song Picks

  • Episode 4: "Try" by P!nk

Show Clues

  • Episode 4 monologue: "Growing up, I was just your average professional figure skater with Olympic dreams. I wanted to be a child psychologist. Side note: My super power is empathy. Cute, right? But instead I found myself in the psycho city of Hollywood. What happened next could have happened to billions of bombshells. I modeled for a major agency, did some teen acting commercials, landed some international sitcom parts and made out with Tom Cruise. These days, I love getting to play superheroes, just as much as I love playing the girl next door that's also funny. What can I say? I've got range."
  • Episode 1 Visual Clues: white ice skates, a clothing rack, a smiley face button, a gorilla asking for an autograph, plates of fruit and Swedish meatballs, a white cut-out of a castle
  • Episode 1 On-stage Clue: the phrase "hero time"

The Guesses

  • Robin Thicke's guess: Uma Thurman
  • Jenny McCarthy's guesses: Naomi Watts, Katie Holmes
  • Ken Jeong's guesses: Michelle Monaghan, Renee Zellweger, Margot Robbie
  • Nicole Scherzinger's guess: no guess made
  • Our guess: Our guess is actress Malin Åkerman. She figure skated as a kid, "hero time" could be a nod to her role in Watchmen, she was Tom Cruise's love interest in the movie adaptation of Rock of Ages, and she's Swedish, like the meatballs. She also studied child psychology, and the gorilla clue could be a reference to her movie Rampage.
