SPOILER ALERT: The absolutely bonkers season-2 premiere of “The Masked Singer” unmasked two of the show’s celebrities, and their identities will be revealed by reading ahead.
The second season premiere of Fox’s “The Masked Singer” kicked off with a bang on Wednesday, concluding by revealing the identities of two of the masked celebrities competing in the new season.
The episode began by separating the contestants into two groups, with four contestants placed in each group to face off in a head-to-head singing battle.
In one group, the Butterfly competed against the Egg, while Thingamajig faced off against the Skeleton. In the other group, the Rottweiler took on the Ladybug, with the Tree up against Ice Cream.
With two celebs sent packing this week, panellists Robin Thicke, Nicole Scherzinger, Ken Jeong, and Jenny McCarthy made their guesses.
First up: the Egg, with Jeong guessing “Queer Eye” star Jonathan Van Ness was beneath the mask, while Scherzinger guessed it was fashion designer Christian Siriano. Meanwhile, both Thicke and McCarthy suggested the Egg was Johnny Weir.
As it turned out, Thicke and McCarthy were correct, with the Olympic figure skater revealed as the celebrity wearing the Egg costume.
The next contestant to get sent home was Ice Cream. Jeong thought the celeb beneath the costume was YouTuber PewDiePie, while Scherzinger suggested it was EDM artist Marshmello and Thicke guessed Deadmau5. McCarthy also rendered her guess, thinking it was skateboarder Rob Dyrdek.
They were all wrong: Hiding beneath the cone was pro video gamer and internet sensation Tyler “Ninja” Blevins. “My kids are gonna love this!” yelled McCarthy in excitement.
Look for more celebs to be unmasked in the weeks to come as the second season of “The Masked Singer” continues.
