Fox’s ‘Masked Singer’ reveals second celebrity masked singer: And the pineapple is… (video)

(Warning: This post contains spoilers for the second episode of Fox’s “The Masked Singer”)

Fox’s oddball, already-smash-hit celebrity singing game show “The Masked Singer” returned Wednesday, revealing at the end of its second episode that the identity of one of its famous contestants — who performed Gloria Gaynor’s “I Will Survive” disguised from head to toe in an elaborate anthropomorphic Pineapple costume — was none other than comedic legend Tommy Chong.

After three rounds of sing-offs in which studio audience members voted to determine the results, Alien lost to Rabbit, Pineapple lost to Raven, and Poodle lost to Bee. Next, it was time for panelists Jenny McCarthy, Nicole Scherzinger, Ken Jeong and Robin Thicke to choose which member of the losing trio was the “weakest performer,” who would then be eliminated and unmasked. And that ended up being poor Pineapple.

After much debate among the panelists, with Thicke guessing Sugar Ray Leonard, McCarthy picking Chong, Jeong landing on Jimmy Buffett and Scherzinger saying Kid Rock, host Nick Cannon revealed the answer to their second “whosungit mystery” (his pun, not ours), by having Chong remove his mask, confirming McCarthy’s guess.

Earlier in the episode, a short segment featuring the Pineapple washing a car gave us a few clues as to who the masked singer really was, including: 1) he’s a pineapple because they are “fun, tropical and go well with ham,” 2) he went through some “dark times” and beat a “life-threatening disease,” 3) he’s an “OG” who has decided to “take things as they come,” 4) he’s been in the public eye for decades, but has “always dreamed of being a singer,” 5) he’s got some attachment to Michigan and 6) some reference to “pipe dreams” and a lot of smoke in the scene made the panelists think he “definitely smoked weed.”

Now, we still don’t know the identities of Raven, Alien, Poodle, Bee and Rabbit, along with last week’s contestants, Peacock, Deer, Lion, Monster and Unicorn — though we did find out Antonio Brown was Hippo.

According to Fox, between all of the celebrity competitors on “The Masked Singer,” they’ve amassed 65 Grammy nominations, 16 multi-Platinum albums, 16 Emmy nominations, nine Broadway shows, four stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and four Super Bowl titles.

“The Masked Singer” airs Wednesdays at 9/8c on Fox.
