‘The Masked Singer’ Season 2 Episode 5 Updated Betting Odds

by James Murphy in Entertainment  / October 27, 2019

  • ‘The Masked Singer’ is a US adaptation of a hit Korean TV series.
  • The season 1 winner was T-Pain aka ‘Monster’
  • Episode 5 of ‘The Masked Singer’ Season 2 will air on October 30, 2019 at 8 PM Eastern on Fox TV

Episode 5 of The Masked Singer was originally scheduled for last Wednesday, October 23 but ended up being pre-empted due to the World Series.

In Episode 4 of The Masked Singer 6 of the 12 remaining contestants squared off mano a mano…uh…boca a boca….and when the mayhem concluded The Skeleton (El Esqueleto) was eliminated. Under mascara contra mascara rules he had to unmasked and was revealed to be none other than David Letterman sidekick Paul Shaffer.

That puts my pre-season ‘inside information’ on who is under the masks to a pitiful 1-5 and now I need to get some new sources. Everyone I spoke with was adamant that The Skeleton was ‘writer’ Stephen King. Not even close. Anyway, The Skeleton’s dismissal leaves us with 11 contestants. Next time these contestants will go at it: Flower, Fox, Ladybug, Penguin, Rottweiler, Thingamajig and Tree.

After this week there will be 10 contestants remaining. We’ll be adding in some additional prop bets starting next week as well as some ‘Who is under the mask?’ type prop bets. Stay tuned.
