See Why Ken Jeong Thinks Travis Kelce Might Be “The Masked Singer” Season 11's Lovebird (Exclusive)

'The Hangover' star makes his first bold guess of the new season in PEOPLE's exclusive sneak peek at Wednesday's premiere

Travis Kelce nabbed another Super Bowl win this year — and he might be coming for the Golden Mask trophy next.

In PEOPLE's exclusive sneak peek at Wednesday’s premiere of The Masked Singer, judge Ken Jeong guesses that Lovebird could be the 34-year-old Kansas City Chiefs tight end.

“When I think of hot leading men, I think of Travis Kelce,” explains Jeong, 54. “He had his own dating reality show, Catching Kelce, of which I was a big fan. I never missed an episode. But Travis has caught the eye of some amazing starlets, most notably Taylor Swift. I know, right? Hubba hubba!”

New panelist Rita Ora has a different idea. “I don’t know a lot about football, right?” concedes the British pop star, 33. “The only football player that I know is somebody that’s very easy on the eye, he was the lead of his own reality show, which makes me think leading man, the clue: Odell Beckham Jr.

Jeong thinks Ora might be on to something. “He’s got the exact same color hair as OBJ,” The Hangover actor says of Lovebird.

Ora is sitting in for Nicole Scherzinger on the panel this season alongside returning judges Jeong, Jenny McCarthy and Robin Thicke. Nick Cannon will be back as host when season 11 of The Masked Singer premieres Wednesday.

Theme nights this time around will include Girl Groups, Soundtrack of My Life, TV Theme Night and Shower Anthems, as well as tributes to The Wizard of Oz and Transformers.

Last season, R&B singer NE-YO — a.k.a. Cow — come out victorious, with actor John Schneider (Donut) ending as runner-up.

“I had an absolute ball with it. It was a lot of fun stepping outside of the NE-YO box for a minute and being somebody else,” NE-YO, 44, told PEOPLE. “I genuinely enjoyed the experience and I would do it again if I felt like I could get away with it.”

Schneider, 63, told PEOPLE that The Masked Singer “helped me get through the worst year of my life” following the death of his wife Alicia.

“It was a great opportunity to be able to entertain, yes, and to have fun, yes, but also to grieve and let people know that it's OK,” The Dukes of Hazzard actor said. “Grieving is something you've got to do. And I liked that the Donut grieving actually is helping people who are on the same road. It's not a job I ever wanted. It's nothing I ever really wanted to understand. But it is the hand that I've been dealt. And I'm doing to make the very best of it, in honor of my beautiful wife.”
