(Warning: This post contains spoilers for Wednesday’s episode of “The Masked Singer.”)
Fox’s oddball, already-smash-hit celebrity singing game show “The Masked Singer” returned Wednesday, revealing at the end of its eighth episode the identity of not one, but two of its famous contestants. Yes, for the first time, the competition series eliminated two masked singers at once, as it heads into its Season 1 finale next week.
Rumer Willis was unveiled as the actress behind the Lion’s mask, while the Rabbit’s true identity was revealed to be singer Joey Fatone. Along with those two, tonight’s episode saw the returns of Bee, Peacock and Monster.
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 member of the group were the two “weakest performers,” who would then be eliminated and unmasked. And those ended up being Lion and Rabbit.
Then it was time for the booted celebs, Willis and Fatone, to unmask themselves and reveal their identities to the audience and viewers at home.
According to Fox, between all of the 12 celebrities competing on the first season of “The Masked Singer,” they’ve amassed 65 Grammy nominations, 16 multi-platinum albums, 16 Emmy nominations, nine Broadway shows, four stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and four Super Bowl titles.
Now, we still don’t know the identities of Peacock, Bee, and Monster — though we have learned La Toya Jackson was the Alien, Ricki Lake was Raven, Tori Spelling was Unicorn, Margaret Cho was Poodle, Terry Bradshaw was Deer, Tommy Chong was Pineapple and Antonio Brown was Hippo.
The remaining three contestants will compete on the two-hour Season 1 finale next week.
