This week was a monumental one for Fox's 'The Masked Singer.' On Wednesday's episode, Tree was unmasked to be Ana Gasteyer. On Thursday's episode, Thingamajig and Leopard were revealed to be Victor Oladipo and Seal respectively. Three celebrities were unmasked in one week cutting the competition in half before the 3-contender finale.

One of the most dramatic exits was Thingamajig. He was both a fan and judge favorite, but one judge, in particular, was a little more emotional about his departure.

Nicole Scherzinger had formed a special connection with Thingamajig, now known as Victor Oladipo, throughout the course of the season. It started when Scherzinger admitted having a crush on Thingamajig. It all culminated to Oladipo declaring her as "Nicoleamajig" and Scherzinger proposing to him.

After Thursday's 'The Masked Singer' episode when Thingmajig was eliminated, [Scherzinger tweeted,] (https://twitter.com/NicoleScherzy/status/1204942191216300032) "It was such a pleasure to have you on the show [Victor Oladipo]! Your voice is so incredible. Thank you for the 10-week showmance!"

After the show, fans were left wondering if Scherzinger and Oladipo would start dating. Some even suspected that they were dating during the show. While both seem to refute the latter rumor, Oladipo has told People TV that he wouldn't be opposed to going on a date with Scherzinger. When asked about it, he responded, "anywhere, any time, any place."

His response is certainly promising. He then began to seriously consider the question and go more in depth on the logistics.

"If I actually do, hopefully it's in the near future if the moment or opportunity presents itself," Oladipo speculated. "If I did, I would just take her to wherever she wants to go because it would be all about her and me getting to know her, and obviously us getting to know one another."

Oladipo definitely seems like a romantic, but more importantly, that he'd be more than open to dating Scherzinger. Scherzinger hasn't made any comments beyond her tweet the night of the show.

Scherzinger may take some more persuading. According to [PopCulture,] (https://popculture.com/reality-tv/2019/12/13/the-masked-singer-thingamajig-victor-oladipo-wants-take-nicole-scherzinger-date/) she was spotted kissing X-Factor contestant Thom Evans. Scherzinger is 41 while Oladipo is only 27 which would also complicate their relationship.

Aside from his showmance, Oladipo described his experience on 'The Masked Singer' fondly.

"It has been a rough year for me but to be able to come out here and put smiles on people’s faces and just do something fun for once and get away from the game has been awesome. It’s nothing but a blessing for me," he said on the show.
