Although the sixth season of “The Masked Singer” only started on September 22nd, fans have already seen five prominent contestants on their way home.
Organized by Nick Cannon, The show has been judged by the same panel of four celebrity stars for the past six seasons: Robin Thicke, Jenny McCarthy-Wahlberg, Ken Jeong, and Nicole Scherzinger.
Though fans have seen winners like T-pain (Monster), Wayne Brady (Fox), Kandi Burruss (Night angel), LeAnn Rimes (Sun) and Season 5 winners Nick Lachey (Piglet), executive producer Craig Plestis teased that fans can expect more “unexpected voices”, hinting, “We have discovered a lot of hidden talent around the world and in Hollywood, people who can sing and perform.”
Here are the shocking celebrity contestants who already dropped out of season 6!
Based on what you read:
The first player eliminated was an NBA player Dwight Howardwho acted as an octopus. Howard, 35, plays for the Los Angeles Lakers and is an NBA champion and eight-time all-star.
In an interview after his exposure, Howard admitted that he was a longtime fan of The Masked Singer and didn’t want to leave.
“I really enjoyed myself no matter what the result,” he said. “I learned a lot about myself and it gave me so much confidence. I’m glad I did, I’m glad you asked me to come. I wouldn’t have refused that for anything. “
Vivica A. Fox
The second player to be eliminated was the “Independence Day” actress Vivica A. Fox, 57, who acted as Mother Nature. Many fans were puzzled by the clue linking them to season two winner Wayne Brady, only to realize after their exposure that his Fox costume was a nod to their last name.
“Oh my god, that was intoxicating,” she said after her exposure. “I challenged myself. I’ve done so many things in my career and I’ve never done anything like it. And I had fun! “
This could go down in history as one of the biggest surprises in the history of “TMS”. Seven-time Grammy winner Toni Braxton, 54, best known for her 1996 single “Un-break My Heart,” was eliminated as a puffer after her second appearance. As one of the best-selling R&B artists in history, it was shocking to see that she wasn’t eliminated until the third episode.
Braxton’s powerful singing might not have reached the audience, however, as she also wore a mask under her costume for added COVID-19 protection.
Braxton stated, “I was in one house during the whole pandemic and saw them do something fun. But I still had to be extra careful and do it with the mask under the mask. “
Next went the Grammy-nominated rapper Tygawho appeared as a Dalmatian. Tyga, 31, said after his exposure that he was inspired to appear on the stage of “The Masked Singer” afterwards Lil Wayne listed in the broadcast.
Lil Wayne played the Lenny Kravitz hit “Are You Gonna Go My Way” as Robot during the season three premiere, proving that critically-acclaimed artists are not safe on the “TMS” stage.
Larry the cable guy
At last night’s shocking elimination, the audience was stunned when Baby was exposed to reveal stand-up comedian and actor Larry the cable guy, 58.
“It was just fun. Everyone was super fun and super nice, and it was a great time. It’s fun to be part of it, ”he said of his run. “They said it was fun and you’d have a great time and that was all that stuff. I’m glad i did. It’s about entertaining and making people laugh and doing something that is completely different and that was it. “
“The Masked Singer” will air on Fox Wednesday night.
