The Masked Singer is coming back into our lives this fall, which means you finally have something new to be baffled by and argue about. But this time Fox is doing things a bit differently. Instead of introducing us all to this season’s crazy characters during the premiere, this weekend the network is airing a sneak peek special about what’s to come.
There’s really nothing else in America quite like The Masked Singer. A group of celebrities don elaborate themed costumes to compete against each other in a singing competition. No one knows who’s underneath the masks, and each singer drops new clues for viewers. Each week a different performer is unmasked for… not singing well enough? Not being psyched enough? Not embracing their costume? Who knows. Much like Whose Line Is It Anyway?, everything is made up and the rules don’t matter.
And it’s a ton of fun. So what do you need to know before you meet this season’s crop of contestants?
Who was on The Masked Singer Season 1? Who Was Antonio Brown in The Masked Singer?
Season 1 of Fox’s insane singing competition featured celebrities from all over the professional map. Football players Antonio Brown and Terry Bradshaw; comedians Tommy Chong and Margaret Cho; actors Tori Spelling, Ricki Lake, and Rumer Willis; and musicians LaToya Jackson, Joey Fatone, Gladys Knight, Donny Osmond, and T-Pain all competed.
But out of all these contestants, Antonio Brown may have been the most familiar with celebrity reality shows. The former wide receiver starred in Season 22 of Dancing with the Stars. You can check out one of his dance performances here. Unfortunately Brown, aka The Hippo, didn’t last too long on The Masked Singer. He was the first unmasked contestant.
Who won The Masked Singer Season 1?
That honor and accompanying trophy goes to The Monster, aka T-Pain. The Monster battled hard against The Peacock (Donny Osmond) and The Bee (Gladys Knight). But at the end of the day it was T-Pain’s enthusiasm and adorable costume choice that pushed him to victory.
