'The Masked Singer' Spoilers: Mother Nature is Vivica A Fox, here are the clues
Several clues were revealed to help the judges and audience guess that Vivica A Fox was hiding under the mask.
Season 6 of Fox's hit show 'The Masked Singer' kicked off with a shocking double elimination, which means two celebrities were unmasked! Despite her soulful rendition to Diana Ross' 'I'm Coming Out', the celebrity under the massive mother nature costume was among the bottom two performances according to the audience, which led to her elimination.
Before leaving the show, the mother nature costume was unmasked but unfortunately, the audience didn't get a peek of it on the first night as the episode ended with the cliffhanger of the big reveal. We only got a peek of the judges' looking totally shocked. Several clues were revealed to help the judges and audience guess that Vivica A Fox was hiding under the mask. If you're curious to know more about it then read on.
Mother nature clues
As soon as she stepped onto the stage, the mother nature costume pretty much took up the entire space. Vivica wasted no time in explaining why she chose to don the mother nature costume and said that she had done it all. Just like seasons, she too changed continuously. The only thing that she hasn't had a chance to do is become a mother. She then walked through a rainforest while narrating how it took her a long time to come to terms with it.
Don't worry you won't have to sit through an emotional sob story as Vivica eventually realized that the family she already got is more than enough. So the judges immediately narrowed down their guesses to a woman who could probably be a standup comedian as she kept saying that she had to stand up for herself. Judges Kim Jeong and Jenny McCarthy immediately guessed that Issa Rae could be under the costume, while Nicole Scherzinger and Robin Thicke felt that it was Tracy Ellis Ross who could be hiding under the mask. She then lifted a huge penny and a picture of Wayne Brady appeared. She added even though she isn't a mother, her maternal instincts are still pretty strong as she is fiercely protective of her loved ones and won't hesitate to go 'cray cray'. But she's ready to put all that aside as she plans to blossom with her performance. She coyly says "because darling, life is good," before ending her clues package.
Mother nature then took to the stage to sing 'I’m Coming Out' by Diana Ross on a beautiful set featuring a game of whack-a-mole. As soon as she was done with her performance Nick Cannon revealed that he knew who was under the costume. She gave another clue when she looked at Ken Jeong and asked him if he was ready to call her mommy! Ken is convinced it’s a comedian like Aisha Tyler but something about her screams Tiffany Haddish. Nicole Scherzinger guesses Chelsea Handler but Jenny McCarthy points out that Chelsea is a good friend of hers and mother nature didn’t seem like Chelsea. Robin Thicke guesses Tracee Ellis Ross.
The sparkler that was shown in the clue package was a hint at Vivica's breakout role in the movie 'Independence Day'. The giant penny in her clue package was a clue to her role as a copperhead on 'Kill Bill'. If you're wondering where that Wayne Brady clue fits in amidst all this then here you go. The picture of Wayne Brady was a nod to his costume of Fox on Season 2 as Vivica has the same last name. Well, that was certainly interesting unmasking.
'The Masked Singer' Season 6 airs every Wednesday at 8/7c on FOX.
