This week was “One-Hit Wonders” night on “The Masked Singer” and, perhaps fittingly, they sent a competitor home after just one appearance on the show.
Wednesday’s episode, pushed back from the World Series, saw the debut of Group D and with it the introduction of Hibiscus. She gave her best for a performance of “It’s Raining Men,” but unfortunately it was the flower that went home at the end of the night.
Her clues included references to Sharon Stone, Elton John, a gingerbread house and more, along with a cryptic clue from Hibiscus herself: “I’ve entered a few beauty pageants and also worn a tiara.”
As a result, the panel rejected guesses including Kim Zolciak, Bonnie Hunt and Janice Dickinson. But in the end, Hibiscus was unmasked and revealed… Luann de Lesseps.
De Lesseps, of course, is best known as one of the original cast members of Bravo’s The Real Housewives of New York City — and, in fact, NYC was included in her clue package. But she enjoyed taking part in a singing competition.
“I love a good challenge. Like we did in the Berkshires, the treasure hunts and all that stuff. I love competition,” she told TheWrap. “I think it’s so much fun. I love playing and it was a great experience. I’m very grateful that I was able to do something like this.”
“The Masked Singer” airs Wednesdays at 8pm ET on FOX.
