“The Masked Singer,” a.k.a. world’s weirdest singing competition, returns to Fox tonight and TheWrap has an exclusive sneak peek from the two-hour Season 2 premiere featuring everyone’s (OK, our) new favorite contestant: The Egg.
In the clip above, which is exclusive to TheWrap, Ken Jeong makes his prediction as to the identity of the glittery, Faberge-style masked contestant, following the guesses of fellow panelists Jenny McCarthy, Robin Thicke and Nicole Scherzinger. And it seems no one agrees with Ken’s pick.
“I think that you’re, like, a television personality or some sort of host that has an amazing charisma and stage presence about you,” Jeong says to Egg, who is standing beside host Nick Cannon. “I think it’s someone from ‘Queer Eye,’ but I think it’s Jonathan Van Ness.”
“No way!” fellow panelist McCarthy shouts, as there are boos in the crowd.
“How dare you,” Jeong responds. “Yeah, I was a doctor!”
Apparently having an MD does not get you any respect in this whosungit.
Along with The Egg, the other 15 contestants competing on Season 2 include The Ladybug, The Penguin, The Panda, The Butterfly, The Leopard, The Flamingo, The Skeleton, The Fox, The Eagle, The Ice Cream, The Tree, The Rottweiler, The Black Widow, The Flower and Thingamajig.
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” Season 2 premieres with a two-hour episode tonight, Wednesday, at 8/7c on Fox.
