Muppets Fans were Shocked by Kermit the Frog Reveal After Elimination from ‘The Masked Singer‘. Fans of The Masked Singer were happily surprised that the latest eliminated contestant was none other than Kermit the Frog from The Muppets! Kermit was dressed as a giant snail for the competition and though he won’t move on, it’s safe to say that no one guessed who was under the shell.
For those who are not familiar with the series, The Masked Singer is a musical competition series that features musically talented individuals, both professional recording artists and unexpected talents from other entertainment industries. The contestants dress up in masked and over the top costumes to hide their identity and the judges must guess who is behind the mask, while also moving mysterious contestants forward in the competition.
His big reveal even caught the judges off guard and the crowd went absolutely wild after he popped up and out of the shell. In response to his elimination, Kermit shared this statement with Entertainment Weekly:
“I’ve done movies, television and a lot of things in my career, but as hard as it is to believe I had never gotten inside a snail costume and tried to fool judges on Masked Singer. So, when this opportunity came up, I leaped at the chance. Never let it be said that this frog shirked a challenge….or is it ‘challenged a shirk?’ In any case, that’s how it happened.”
