Another undercover celebrity was exposed in the second episode of "The Masked Singer". Who disguised themselves as a unicorn?

The guessing and singing show "The Masked Singer" (live on ProSieben and on Joyn) went into the second round on Tuesday evening. The undercover stars had to compete in a new mode that evening. In three groups of three, the nine remaining candidates fought for advancement. The two celebrities with the most votes went straight through. The one with the fewest voices wobbled. In the end, it was made up of three wobbly candidates.

The chick, the turtle and the monstronaut fought the first three-way battle among themselves. The latter two were very convincing, the chick got the least calls for his performance of "Jungle Drum" by Emilíana Torrini (43) and had to tremble. Rea Garvey (47) guessed that there was definitely no professional singer under the chick costume, Collien Ulmen-Fernandes (39) could imagine. Ruth Moschner (44) threw comedians like Maren Kroymann (71) or Cordula Stratmann (57) in the round. Councilor Smudo (52) thought of Enissa Amani (39).

Good singing pays off after all

The second team of three consisted of the flamingo, the dinosaur and the unicorn. In this group it was once again clear: talented singers are definitely important for the audience. And since the unicorn sang "Lean on Me" by Bill Withers (1938-2020) in a relatively crooked manner, but the other two candidates had a shovel on vocals in contrast to the first show, the unicorn consequently received the fewest calls and joined them as a wobbly candidate for the chick. Tips from the advice team included names like Enie van de Meiklokjes (46), Bibi Claßen (28), Franziska van Almsick (42), Britta Steffen (37) and Victoria Swarovski (27).

The last team of three was led by the bull. "A little hot too," said Moschner, guessing an actor who is named at least once in each season: Elyas M'Barek (38). This was followed by the quokka. Smudo put everything on one card and named, like many viewers on Instagram before, entertainer Thomas Gottschalk (70). The conclusion was made by the leopard – and it had a very powerful voice. Accordingly, the advice team was certain: there had to be a professional singer under the costume. The tips ranged from "one of the No Angels" (Smudo) to "whoever that is" (Garvey) to Cassandra Steen (41) (Moschner). The audience waved the leopard and the bull through, the quokka had to tremble.

Garvey is right

So who had to take off their cover and reveal their identity? It chose between the unicorn, the chick and the quokka. The unicorn received the fewest calls. After the now usual egg dance, the mask fell: Ex-professional swimmer Franziska van Almsick, who was previously mentioned by Garvey, had hidden under the costume.
