Fox’s oddball, already-smash-hit celebrity singing game show “The Masked Singer” returned Wednesday, revealing at the end of its fifth episode that the identity of one of its famous contestants — who performed Icona Pop’s “I Love It” disguised from head to toe in an elaborate Unicorn costume — was none other than actress Tori Spelling.

This episode — which aired on the same day Fox renewed the series for a second season — saw the returns of Alien, Lion, Unicorn and Rabbit.

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 Unicorn.

After the Unicorn was voted out, it was time for her to take off her mask and reveal herself to be the “Beverly Hills, 90210” alum.

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 Raven, Alien, Bee, Rabbit, Lion, Peacock, and Monster — though we have learned Margaret Cho was PoodleTerry Bradshaw was DeerTommy Chong was Pineapple, and Antonio Brown was Hippo.

Watch the reveal above and Spelling’s performance below.

“The Masked Singer” airs Wednesdays at 9/8c on Fox.
