  • Do contestants get paid?

    According to Bustle, contestants on The Masked Singer likely do not get paid at all.

    The outlet states the show itself is “just for fun.”

    “Each person behind the masks is a celebrity of some kind who presumably has plenty of money and opportunities, so it wouldn’t make sense to give them even more,” Bustle continued.

    Every season, the winner of The Masked Singer earns a trophy with a mask on it, while the judge who guessed correctly the most amount of times earns the Golden Ear trophy.

    There is apparently no cash prize on the show, and no specific option to donate to a charity.

  • How much do the judges get paid?

    The judges of The Masked Singer include: Nicole Scherzinger, Jenny McCarthy, Robin Thicke and Ken Jeong.

    FOX tends to remain extremely tight-lipped when it comes to salaries and payments, but there are some estimates based on the net worths of each judge.

    According to Cosmopolitan, judges on the UK version of The Masked Singer get paid between $250K-500K. If the payment is similar for American judges, they have probably earned between $1.25million and $2.5million for their time on the show.

  • Who was caterpillar?

    Fans were in for a surprise on Wednesday, November 17 when it was revealed who the caterpillar was.

    Queer Eye’s Bobby Berk was under the mask.

    Before Berk was revealed to be the Caterpillar, Jenny McCarthy was very ‘confident’ that the star under the mask was actor Jake Gyllenhaal. She even used her one and only Take It Off buzzer to make the guess.

  • Who was the Mallard?

    The Mallard made it to episode ten of this season and fans nailed the man beneath the costume.

    Some of the judge’s guesses included Billy Ray Cyrus, Kiefer Sutherland, Jack Osbourne, and John Rich.

    Robertson said his costume was actually a wood duck, not a mallard, but he thought it would throw people off his trail.

    After he was eliminated, Robertson said, “I was just hiding in plain sight, I guess.”

    “We just really love each other and it’s better not to judge people,” Kat said about her time on the show.

    Before taking the stage, the contestant said “there was a time in her life she was living like an animal,” concerned about how to get food or shelter.

    “I got to see life from both sides now, real poor and real wealthy, and it’s the poorest people who are the most generous,” she added.

  • Banana Split’s cannon clue

    This week’s clue for the duo was a Madison Square Garden shirt.

    Banana said the clue was related to judge Nicole, who said she understood the reference from her first show, which was produced by David Foster, rumored to be the Banana.

    Robin said his father was close to David and he grew up calling him “uncle Dave.”

    The judge said he didn’t believe Foster would perform in a Banana costume.
