The Broccoli Mask was eliminated at the end of the Group C finals episode of 'The Masked Singer'. The Jellyfish, the Mushroom and Broccoli were competing for a spot in the Super Six. The former was added to the lineup at the end of the episode, while the Mushroom and Broccoli had to battle it out in a smackdown to make it to the coveted Super Six to join: The Sun, the Seahorse, the Crocodile, Popcorn, and the latest addition: the Jellyfish.

Unfortunately due to the lack of votes from judges as well as pre-selected 'TMS' fans watching and voting from home, the goofy Broccoli Mask was ousted from the competition while his fellow competitor advanced to fill the final spot in the Super Six. As is tradition on 'TMS' the eliminated contestant goes home but not without unmasking themselves to reveal their true identity but before all that, the judges' panel take their final guess for the identity of the masked celebrity.

Nicole Scherzinger's final guess was Wayne Newton, Jay Pharoah's final guess Paul Simon, Ken Jeong guessed Ringo Star, and Robin Thicke said it could be Paul Anka under the mask while Jenny McCarthy guessed Neil Sedaka's name for the final guess for Broccoli's identity. It was now time for the unmasking and when the mask came off, it was none other but the legendary Paul Anka who emerged from under it. After his unmasking, the legendary American-Canadian singer said, "I am very humbled. We have all gone through something and to enjoy something like this I am so happy and you should all be proud of yourself."

"@Paulanka you are a legend&u have the most glorious crooning voice, thank u for sharing your energy, talent, humor& warmth of spirit with us all! It has been a joy& honor to watch u on stage!" said a fan. "@Paulanka god bless you for doing #TheMaskedSinger, my friend. Your versions of famous songs have made me incredibly happy and I just became a big fan of yours! I hope your family and friends are doing well this time of year. God bless," shared another fan on Twitter.

"Paul Anka is 79 years old. He did an amazing job and seemed to have a great time! And I'm impressed he didn't complain about how hot and uncomfortable the costume is (unlike other contestants). He was really fun to watch. #TheMaskedSinger #BroccoliMask," read another tweet. "Even if you got cut, we are all so proud of you @paulanka, you were the highlight of this Thanksgiving!! Truly an honor #TheMaskedSinger #BroccoliMask," shared judge Robin Thicke.
