It’s Not Me, It’s Them by Joel Dommett

The Masked Singer US spoilers follow.

The Masked Singer US season five aired its premiere yesterday (March 10), and now that the identity of its first celebrity contestant has been revealed, we reckon the series might have peaked already.

Because as well as introducing new Wildcard rounds and even a ‘clue-meister‘, The Masked Singer managed to bag – and quickly lose – a genuine, world-famous icon.

Following their performance of ‘You Make My Dreams (Come True)’ by Hall and Oates, Snail sadly lost out against Russian Dolls, Seashell, Raccoon, and Porcupine. The judges threw out guesses of Billy Crystal and Ted Cruz but, as ever, missed the mark.

While it’s never easy being the first one to go home, Snail’s exit did lead to one of the greatest Masked Singer reveals yet, as the show’s “most famous guest” was unmasked as… Kermit the Frog.

Yes, really.

The “movie star, Oscar-winner, and A-list amphibian” was gracious in defeat, but a little worried about returning home. “It’s not easy being green, but sometimes it’s even harder being a snail,” he said.

“I’m never gonna hear the end of this from Miss Piggy.”

Speaking to Variety, the beloved Muppet said that he “loved every minute” of his time as Snail. “After years of being your average everyday talking frog, I thought it would be fun to be someone else,” Kermit explained.

“The chance to become a snail – with my own built-in mobile home – was too good to pass up. I didn’t last on the show very long. But I loved every minute of it.”

The Masked Singer US airs on Fox, while its UK equivalent airs on ITV.
