(Warning: This post contains spoilers for Wednesday’s Season 2 premiere of “The Masked Singer.”)
Fox’s oddball, smash-hit celebrity singing competition “The Masked Singer” returned Wednesday, revealing at the end of its two-hour Season 2 premiere the identities of two of its new contestants: The Egg and The Ice Cream.
Egg turned out to be Olympic figure skater Johnny Weir and professional gamer Tyler “Ninja” Blevins was the famous face behind Ice Cream.
Tonight, Groups A and B were introduced with these matchups: The Egg vs. The Butterfly, Thingamajig vs. The Skeleton, The Rotteweiler vs. The Ladybug, and The Tree vs. The Ice Cream.
After the contestants performed, it was time for panelists Jenny McCarthy, Nicole Scherzinger, Ken Jeong and Robin Thicke, along with the studio audience, to choose which were the “weakest” performers.
They picked Egg, Skeleton, Ice Cream and Ladybug, which meant those four competed in two “smackdown” rounds, with Egg losing to Skeleton and Ladybug beating Ice Cream.
Then the identities of Egg and Ice Cream were revealed to be Weir and Blevins, respectively.
The other eight out of 16 contestants competing on Season 2 include The Penguin, The Panda, The Leopard, The Flamingo, The Fox, The Eagle, The Black Widow and The Flower, who will be introduced in the coming weeks.
According to Fox, “collectively, all of the Season Two undercover celebrities have amassed 69 Emmy Award nominations, 42 Grammy Award nominations, 22 Broadway shows, three New York Times best-sellers and two have been named Time magazine’s Most Influential People.”

“The Masked Singer” airs Wednesdays at 8/7c on Fox.
