It’s unmasking season! The Masked Singer season 10 premiered on September 27. Rubber Ducky became the first masked singer of the season to be eliminated. The following week, Diver was unmasked. During 2000s Night, Pickle was sent home. When the show celebrated the work of Elton John during the October 18 episode, Royal Hen was eliminated at the end of the night.
Prior to the official season 10 premiere, The Masked Singer aired a special kickoff episode that featured a special performance by Anonymouse. At the end of the night, Anonymouse’s identity was revealed, and the moment was one of the most memorable unmaskings in the show’s history.
So, who was eliminated on premiere night? As season 10 continues, this will be the spot to find out who has been unmasked on The Masked Singer. By the time the finale rolls around, every celebrity will be unmasked, so stay tuned!
Billie Jean King as Royal Hen
During the show’s celebration of Elton John, legendary tennis pro Billie Jean King was revealed as the Royal Hen. The 79-year-old performed Elton’s song “Philadelphia Freedom,” which was actually written about her. Billie faced off against Hawk in a Smackdown, but she was eliminated in the October 18 episode. Ken Jeong got yet another identity right this season!
Michael Rapaport as Pickle
Michael Rapaport was revealed as Pickle during The Masked Singer’s 2000s Night on October 11. The comedian, 53, performed “Beverly Hills” by Weezer, and then faced off against S’More in Smackdown. Unfortunately, it wasn’t enough to keep in the competition. Pickle was eliminated on 2000s Night, but none of the panelists guessed his identity correctly.
“I was very proud that nobody got me. I’m not sure if that is common, but I was very happy that they didn’t get me until I showed my face,” Michael told HollywoodLife. “I was nervous off the top that they were going to know who I was, and they didn’t. The more guesses they had and just didn’t get me, the cockier I got.”
Even though he didn’t win the competition, Michael would be down to return to The Masked Singer as a guest panelist. “I think I would bring a lot to the show. I know I would have a lot of fun doing it. I would love to do that,” he said.
Tom Sandoval as Diver
Vanderpump Rules star Tom Sandoval was revealed as Diver during the October 4 episode. The 40-year-old performed “I Ain’t Worried” by OneRepublic during NFL Night. Ken Jeong guessed Tom’s identity correctly before the big reveal. During his time on the show, Tom opened up about his difficult year and addressed his cheating scandal.
“I’m here to show the world that I’m more than my mistakes. Being here already feels like a healing experience. Getting to share my talent instead of my drama is exactly what I’ve needed,” he said in his clue package.
Anthony Anderson as Rubber Ducky
Black-ish alum Anthony Anderson was revealed as Rubber Ducky in The Masked Singer season 10 premiere. In his very creative Rubber Ducky costume, Anthony, 53, performed “Come On Eileen” by Dexys Midnight Runners and faced off against Diver, Cow, Gazelle, and S’More in the episode. Ken actually guessed Anthony’s identity right off the bat.
Just before he was unmasked, the panelists made their final guesses. Ken stuck with Anthony, while the other panelists thought Rubber Ducky could be David Arquette, Jaleel White, or one of the Wayans brothers. In the end, Ken was right!
Demi Lovato as Anonymouse
During the special kickoff episode, which aired on September 10, Demi Lovato took The Masked Singer stage dressed as Anonymouse. The 31-year-old performed a terrific rendition of Heart’s “What About Love.”
The panel didn’t initially guess Demi’s name. They thought Anonymouse could be Miley Cyrus or Christina Aguilera. However, Nicole Scherzinger eventually caught on after assessing all the clues. “I wanted to do your show because it seemed so fun, and it has been so fun,” Demi revealed after she was unmasked.
