Masked Singer Installs Barricade To Prevent Spoilers From Leaking

The Masked Singer team had quite a lot of work to do in order to keep nosy fans from identifying any of the secret celebrities on the show, including installing a barricade. The singing competition show is now in season 7 and has had some incredibly talented performers and great reveals so far. Contestants Firefly and Ringmaster blew the panelists and fans away with their vocals and have already taken two of the three spots in the season 7 finale. Viewers were also excited to see stars like actor Jorge Garcia, supermodel Christie Brinkley and Broadway performer Jennifer Holliday on the show. However, there are still three contestants yet to be unmasked: Cobra, Space Bunny and Prince.

While The Masked Singer does its best to keep contestants' identities under wraps, in February it was reported that former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani had been revealed during filming for season 7. The controversy sparked a lot of anger from fans, who were threatening to boycott the season. For fans who did intend to watch, they couldn't wait for the episode to air so they could move on and hopefully never hear about it again. Last week, Rudy finally made his appearance when he was unmasked as the Jack in the Box, prompting an angry reaction from panelist Ken Jeong. As reports said earlier this year, Ken was not pleased with his appearance, likely due to the former mayor's involvement in Donald Trump's attempts to overturn a free and fair election, and he walked off stage right as the episode finished.

Apparently, fans and paparazzi were trying to get more information, and the show had to go to extremes to prevent any spoilers from leaking. According to TMZ, fans and paparazzi have been waiting outside the studio trying to see which celebrities are competing on the show. They've been trying to snap pictures between cracks in the fence and have even stood on top of cars to get a better look. In order to prevent them from uncovering any uncovering any Masked Singer secrets, the set designers had to team up with the show's security team.

The team used set pieces from past seasons to create a barricade that would keep out fans and paparazzi. While it was a lot of hard work, it seems to have worked in their favor, as no photos have leaked online. With just a few contestants left, The Masked Singer is getting ready for its season finale. It's been revealed on the show that Cobra is hiding more than one celebrity, making fans believe R&B group En Vogue may be in the snake costume. Fans also think they've got the other contestants figured out as well, guessing reggae singer Shaggy for Space Bunny, and Broadway performer and actor Cheyenne Jackson for Prince.

The Masked Singer fans sure are sneaky. Apparently, they'll do whatever they have to in order to get a look at the show's set. While it doesn't sound easy building a barricade out of set pieces, it's good that the show's team got creative in order to protect their show. Hopefully, no more secrets will leak, like the unfortunate Rudy situation, and The Masked Singer can go on as usual.
