The Masked Singer has revealed all 16 contestant costumes for the upcoming fourth season, and the latest menagerie includes adorable Baby Alien, as well as Squiggly Monster, Popcorn, Broccoli and Seahorse.
In a sneak preview that aired on Sunday night (Sept. 13), the Fox series slated to return on Sept. 23 debuted how it will deal with filming new episodes during the COVID-19 pandemic after crowning Grammy-winning singer/songwriter and Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kandi Burruss as the season three champ.
In a nod to the current reality, judges Ken Jeong, Robin Thicke, Nicole Scherzinger and Jenny McCarthy Wahlberg will be seated a safe distance from each other as they watch Crocodile, Gremlin, Mushroom, Jellyfish, Whatchamacallit, Lips, Sun, Dragon, Giraffe, Serpent and the previously revealed double-headed Snow Owls battle it out. Fox has teased out some clues already about the contestant’s identities, revealing that they have appeared in “five Super Bowls, have four stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and one Time 100 Most Influential persons.”
