Eventually, it was annnounced that the one who got eliminated that night was the Baby Alien, who was later revealed to be former NFL player Mark Sanchez. "They needed somebody who was in decent physical condition that could carry the weight of this costume because it wasn't going to be light," the former New York Jets quarterback revealed to HollywoodLife.com. "Somebody who wanted to have fun and expand their skill set and all that kind of stuff, so they picked the right guy I think. We had a blast coming up with that character and learning how to use a puppet, and then learning how to sing more or less without getting booed off stage."
