AceShowbiz - "The Masked Singer" returned with a new episode after not airing last week. In the Wednesday, November 8 episode, which marked "One Hit Wonder Night", Donut, Candelabra, Hibiscus and Anteater hit the stage for the first time.
The singer kicking off the night was Donut. His clue revealed that he had a "mega-hit" that rocketed him to fame and he called himself a country boy. His visual package, meanwhile, included a badge, a Los Angeles flag, cowboy boots and an arrow.
That night, Donut sang "Hooked on a Feeling" by Blue Swede. Later, a karaoke machine came on stage to give a one hit wonder clue, and Donut chose "How Bizarre" because he said it was bizarre to have him in this episode because he had "hit after hit after hit." Panelist Nicole Scherzinger guessed Sylvester Stallone, Ken Jeong named Jeff Bridges, while Jenny McCarthy and Robin Thicke agreed that Donut could be Tom Jones.
Hibiscus followed it up. She claimed in her clue that she grew up in a large family, adding that she did a stint in a hospital before she moved to Los Angeles. Her visual clues revealed a gingerbread house, first aid kit and Statue of Liberty.
Hibiscus opted to sing "It's Raining Men" by Weather Girls. As for the onstage clue, Hibiscus chose "I'm Too Sexy", saying that she's "been in a couple of beauty pageants." With all the clues, Jenny believed that Hibiscus was Luann de Lesseps. Ken guessed Bonnie Hunt, while Robin thought she was Janice Dickinson.
Later, Anteater hit the stage to give his debut performance. In his clues, he said that he started his career on a yacht. However, he moved to a farm after falling into some bad business deals. His visual package saw clouds opening to reveal an angel.
Anteater performed "Walking in Memphis" by Marc Cohen that night, while his onstage clue was "Somebody's Watching Me". "There's a time when I performed in front of 40 percent of the entire world," Anteater explained. Ken mentioned Rick Springfield. Nicole guessed Bryan Adams. John Mellencamp was also among the guesses.
It was then Candelabra's turn. In her clue package, Candelabra could be seen calling Kevin Hart. She said that she's always been ambitious, but was ready to let loose on "The Masked Singer". She also claimed that she has fans all over the world.
Candelabra showcased her singing and dancing skills while performing "1 Thing" by Amerie. Her onstage tune, meanwhile, was "Two Princes" as she said, “Who needs two princes when you have one fire princess.” Ken confidently said that Candelabra was Mariah Carey, though host Nick Cannon said that he'd know if she was really Mimi. Ken then changed his guess to Regina Hall. Nicole named Brandy, while Robin thought Candelabra could be Anika Noni Rose.
It was time to find out the results, and the two singers being sent to a Smackdown were Anteater and Hibiscus. They would be singing their own take on "Hey Mickey" by Toni Basil.
Following the performance, the panel had to choose one singer who would stay in the competition. The singer moving to the next round was Anteater, meaning that Hibiscus was eliminated.
Before she got unmasked, the panelists revealed their final guesses. Robin went with Janice Dickinson, Nicole guessed Hannah Waddingham, Ken mentioned Kim Cattrall, while Jenny still thought she was Luann de Lesseps. Jenny was correct because Hibiscus was revealed to be "The Real Housewives of New York City" star.
