If you're wondering how producers on the ABC game show continue to surprise us with the participants telling the truth, you're not alone!

First, Howery asks about puppeteers and the voices of the puppets, then Rodriguez has all three name the person they think is the greatest of all time in the field.

It’s when Howery asks which category of puppetry the Muppets fall into that everyone begins chiming in. “That’s a Muppet, not a puppet,” host Anthony Anderson argues.

“We have a professional here that could answer,” Glaser points out. And so they turn to the three participants. Watch the clip above for their answers.
