The Masked Singer was back tonight with a special new Thanksgiving episode. And while most of the time guesses from our celebrity panel will make our eyes roll, it was Robin Thicke who got the reveal right tonight thanks to a sharp ear and strong knowledge of Canadian celebrities.
At the end of the night, the Broccoli mask was revealed to be none other than musical legend, Paul Anka. Thicke had him pegged and was certain when he made his guess.
The path to Anka’s reveal was fun. He ended up in the smackdown with Mushroom, who our celebrities are convinced could be Jaden Smith, Taye Diggs, or the Weeknd. If it were indeed the Weeknd, it would continue his roller coaster month of being named as the performer to the upcoming SuperBowl and getting snubbed by the Grammys. But it’s probably not the Weeknd.
The Jellyfish avoided the smackdown with a strong performance. Some of the guesses included Kylie Jenner, Charli XCX, and Mckayla Maroney. Some good guesses online indicate it could indeed be an famous gymnast, but we won’t be finding out tonight.
Towards the end of the show, I was inclined to agree with Nichole Scherzinger that Broccoli was Wayne Newton. But that wasn’t the case. My only correct guess this year so far was Wendy Williams as the Lips mask but everybody got that one.
Jay Pharoh was the guest panelist and as one of the best impressionist in the game he was fun to watch.
We’re moving on into the Super Six. Sun mask, is still my favorite to win it. Many viewers are sure it’s Leanne Rimes. We’ll have to wait to see.
