When is a Masked Singer wild card not a wild card? When he’s actually host Nick Cannon, pulling a fast one on judges and the audience alike!
That’s precisely what took place in Wednesday’s episode, when a wild card contestant named Bulldog wound up getting the short end of the fetching stick: He was chosen by fill-in host Niecy Nash to be unmasked, leaving Crab, Piglet, Black Swan and Chameleon safe for another week. (Read a full recap of the episode.)
And when the golden dog’s head came off, he was revealed to be Cannon, returned from his quarantine after testing positive for COVID-19 just before the start of the season.
Ahead of Episode 5 on Wednesday (Fox, 8/7c) we’ve gathered what we believe are the most important clues from the premiere and consolidated them into a handy guide. The goal: Figure out who’s beneath those costumes far before their unveilings.
All season long, we’ll update the gallery at right — go to it directly here — with information gleaned from this week’s show, and we’ll add our (and some of your) thoughts about who’s beneath the costumes. So make sure to log your thoughts, theories and evolving guesses in the comments section!
