The Masked Singer has revealed their fourth masked celebrity in their latest episode on Wednesday night (Jan. 24.) The show’s latest casualty was the Poodle.
The poodle was the fourth celebrity to be unmasked, following the hippo — revealed to be Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown, the Pineapple, who turned out to be Tommy Chong of Cheech and Chong and the deer was unmasked as former Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Terry Bradshaw.
Do you recall some of the clues that were given to help discover the poodle’s identity? The poodle is someone you’ve known for years but you have no idea, turns to her best friends to practice new material and she followed that up with a joke. She also referenced “justice” and “the verdict,” leading the panelists to think the poodle was a judge at one point.
The poodle had the judges going crazy, shouting out all kinds of ideas. While Nicole Scherzinger and Joel McHale guessed fitness trainer Jillian Michaels, Robin Thicke guessed “a very fit judge judy,” Jenny McCarthy guessed comedian Kathy Griffin and Ken Jeong had no idea, guessing Melissa Rivers.
Guess what? None of them were even close. The time came for the poodle to unmask herself. Who could it be? None other than comedian/actress Margaret Cho.
“Ken I thought you would know,” Margaret said after revealing herself.
“She was my sister on Dr. Ken,” Ken said. “I should know that. I had all the clues and I knew nothing. I am so dumb. This is a pioneer in Asian-American comedy. You are the reason I am a comedian. I love you so much you have no idea.”
Margaret is a stand up comedian, actress and fashion designer. She starred in the Lifetime series Drop Dead Diva, where she played a paralegal assistant, hence the legal clues that were given.
The Masked Singer airs Wednesdays on FOX. Stay tuned to find out as the rest of the masked singers are revealed.
