He wasn’t the only champion to go home. Gopher got the chop after facing The Bride in a battle royale where the contestants took turns singing Smashmouth’s “All-Star”.

Under the mask was the great George Clinton of Parliament-Funkadelic.

“Man, it’s hot as hell in this, but I’m cool with you guys,” Clinton explained, clearly relieved that the mask was off. And why did the clerk put the helmet on in the first place? “You always have too much fun here,” he said. “I had to get some.”

They join the likes of Daymond John (Fortune Teller), “Brady boys” Mike Lookinland, Barry Williams and Christopher Knight (Mummies), Montell Jordan (Panther), Jeff Dunham (Pi-Rat), Chris Kirkpatrick (Hummingbird), Eric Idle (Hedgehog) and William Shatner (Knight) as participants revealed so far in the 2022 series.

TMS season 8 rings in the changes, with several major tweaks to the format.

For the first time, each episode features a brand new round of masked celebrities, with only one contestant moving forward at the end of the hour. Plus, the audience will vote in the studio for their favorite performance of the night, and the singer with the lowest number will then unmask mid-show before taking his place in the new Masked Singer VIP section to watch the rest of the episode.
