The Masked Singer has revealed the famous faces behind the Gopher and Venus Flytrap costumes.
The Fox singing competition, hosted by Nick Cannon, aired its latest episode on November 9 and welcomed Gopher and Venus Flytrap to the show for the first time, alongside another new costume, Bride.
In the episode that was filmed during the summer, comedian Leslie Jordan, who died in October in a car crash, had joined panelists Robin Thicke, Ken Jeong, Jenny McCarthy-Wahlberg and Nicole Scherzinger as a special guest along with Community star Joel McHale.
To open the episode, and celebrate the “Hall of Fame Night” theme, Scherzinger took to the stage to sing a version of Irene Cara’s hit song “Fame.”
Then, it was time for the three new costumes to battle it out in hopes of making it through to the next week unmasked.
Newsweek has everything you need to know about what happened on The Masked Singer, including the two celebrities who were revealed as contestants behind the masks.
Who Is Venus Flytrap on ‘The Masked Singer’?
Venus Flytrap was the first costume to be revealed after he received the fewest number of votes following his performance of “Get Ready” by The Temptations.
Thicke guessed boxing legend George Foreman, McCarthy Wahlberg guessed former baseball and football player Bo Jackson and Scherzinger went for NBA Hall of Famer Charles Barkley.
After the guesses it was revealed that Venus Flytrap was, as Thicke correctly guessed, two-time world heavyweight champion and Olympic gold medalist George Foreman.
Who Is Gopher on ‘The Masked Singer’?
After Gopher’s performance of “It’s Your Thing” by The Isley Brothers, Thicke predicted he could be funk musician and songwriter George Clinton while guest judge Jordan said rapper Flavor Flav and McHale guessed comedian George Wallace.
Following Venus Flytrap’s elimination Gopher took on Bride, who had previously performed “Shut Up and Dance” by Walk the Moon, to determine who would win the episode.
In the battle royale, they both took turns singing “All Star” by Smash Mouth and Bride was ultimately declared the winner.
Gopher was then unveiled to be Rock and Roll Hall of Fame member and Grammy Lifetime Achievement honoree George Clinton.
This season, the new format sees only one costume move on to compete the following week. This week Bride was that costume. So far there have been two three-week-long rounds, with Harp and the Lambs winning their respective rounds and securing their spot in the semi-finals.
There are still two weeks left in the third and final round so Bride could join Harp and the Lambs in the semis.
Harp, who fans think is Glee actress Amber Riley, and the Lambs, who viewers believe are “Hold On” hitmakers Wilson Phillips, are the only characters to remain unmasked so far.
Other costumes to have been revealed this season are Joey Lawrence as the Walrus, Le’Veon Bell as the Milkshake, Kat Graham as Robo Girl, Jerry Springer as Beetle, Gloria Gaynor as Mermaid, Mario Cantone as Maize and Daymond John as the Fortune Teller.
Barry Williams, Christopher Knight and Mike Lookinland as the Mummies, Montell Jordan as Panther, Jeff Dunham as Pi-Rat, Chris Kirkpatrick as the Hummingbird, Eric Idle as the Hedgehog and William Shatner as the Knight have all also been unmasked.
The Masked Singer airs Wednesday nights at 8 p.m. ET on Fox.
