The Lion is one of the four mystery celebrity contestants who will perform on “The Masked Singer” Season 1 episode 5 titled “Mix and Masks.” He will compete against the Unicorn, the Alien and the Rabbit.
“Her voice will take you hostage,” a caption of Lion’s photo reads. Because of this, fans still believe that she is Rumer Willis, who starred with her father Bruce Willis in the 2005 action thriller drama film “Hostage,” although she has already denied being part of the show.
“I am not,” Rumer told People when asked whether or not she was the Lion in “The Masked Singer” Season 1. “All of a sudden when it started airing, I started getting all of these things in my Twitter feed and I said, ‘Oh, okay. Well, maybe I have to watch this and see what’s happening.’ It’s pretty cool.”
Joel McHale will no longer appear as a guest panelist on “Mix and Masks.” He joined resident panelists Ken Jeong, Robin Thicke, Nicole Scherzinger and Jenny McCarthy on the third and fourth episodes “Five Masks No More” and “Another Mask Bites the Dust,” which aired on Fox on January 16, 2019 and January 23, 2019, respectively.
After performing “Get Your Shine On” of Florida Georgia Line, Terry Bradshaw was unmasked as The Deer on “Five Masks No More.” Margaret Cho was unmasked as the Poodle on “Another Mask Bites the Dust” after singing “Time After Time” by Cyndi Lauper.
The Lion sang “Feeling Good” by Nina Simone on “Five Masks No More.” The Unicorn performed performed “Oops, I Did It Again” by Britney Spears on the same episode.
Prior to the airing of “Mix and Masks,” new clues to the respective identities of the Rabbit, the Unicorn, the Alien and the Lion were given. The Lion is seen holding a glue gun while behind her is a man reminiscent of Will Smith’s character in “Men in Black.”
