During Tuesday’s FYC event for Fox’s reality TV show “The Masked Singer,” Emmy-winning costume designer Marina Toybina gave the biggest Season 2 spoiler yet when she revealed that one of this fall’s celebrity cast members will be wearing an Egg costume. When panelists Ken Jeong, Jenny McCarthy, Nicole Scherzinger, Robin Thicke and Nick Cannon asked the audience at the Westfield Century City’s Atrium whom they wanted to see as part of the upcoming cast, actor Neil Patrick Harris by far got the most shout-outs. Hmm … might NPH be wearing the Egg mask in Season 2?
Also during “The Masked Singer” Emmy event, which was moderated by the Raven herself Ricki Lake, Jenny confessed that she knew when she originally signed on to the project that it would be a B-I-G. “This thing is gonna be a huge hit,” Jenny recalled telling her manager when she heard about the concept of everyday celebrities performing while wearing extravagant costumes.
Nicole declared that one of the greatest things about the show is “the authenticity behind it.” Specifically addressing Ricki’s journey as the Raven, Nicole divulged, “It wasn’t all smoke and mirrors. Yes, it’s about the mystery behind who’s behind the mask, but [it’s also about] the vulnerability and the transformation and the journey with who’s behind the mask and what they’re going through and their true story.”
