(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 sixth episode that the identity of one of its famous contestants — who performed Sara Bareilles’ “Brave” disguised from head to toe in an elaborate Raven costume — was none other than actress Ricki Lake.
This episode — which aired a week after Fox renewed the series for a second season — saw the returns of Raven, Peacock, Monster and Bee.
After the contestants’ first group performance and individual performances, 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 was the “weakest performer,” who would then be eliminated and unmasked. And that ended up being poor Raven.
After the Raven was voted out, it was time for her to take off her mask and reveal herself to be the Emmy-winning talk-show host.
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 Alien, Bee, Rabbit, Lion, Peacock and Monster — though we have learned Tori Spelling was Unicorn, Margaret Cho was Poodle, Terry Bradshaw was Deer, Tommy Chong was Pineapple and Antonio Brown was Hippo.
Watch the reveal above and Lake’s performance below.
“The Masked Singer” airs Wednesdays at 9/8c on Fox.
