The Masked Singer US has unmasked yet another celebrity, with the slightly sinister Robopine becoming the next contender to leave the competition.Following a recent double unmasking, the reality series went back to basics and revealed the identity of just one of its stars in yesterday’s (May 5) episode, after Robopine lost out to Yeti, Piglet, Black Swan, Russian Dolls, and Chameleon in the latest round.Despite a clue package that even Robopine themselves called “a little obvious”, Nicole Scherzinger was the only judge on the panel to guess the character’s true identity correctly.
I never thought about fans’ expectations of the films. It’s probably a good thing because, man, that could be a lot of pressure. I know when I was looking at the DC film because there are comic books where you can read backstories for these characters, which was really rich to have to draw from. In that character, too, there are lots of variations of my daughter’s backstory, so — I don’t know if you’re familiar with them — but there were some backstories that were more traumatic than others. Yeah, I appreciate that I’ve been able to be in a couple of films where there are such strong fanbases because that’s what makes these things so special. Yeah, comic book and now doing this.
A little irked that Robopine’s last clue package included a reference to his former Fast & Furious co-star and friend, the late Paul Walker, Tyrese added: “I wanted them to go as far as they could to not have any clues and hints that people would be able to put two and two together.”So if you said you had a really close friend that passed away that’s a co-star/movie star, they’re gonna be like, ‘Well, clearly that’s Tyrese’.”The Paul Walker of it all, I didn’t want to create any buzzkills you know, because it’s such a tragedy, right? I respect the show, but I just kind of thought that particular hint was a little obvious.”
