  This season, we've seen Lil Wayne (The Robot), Drew Carey (The Llama), Chaka Khan (Miss Monster), Tony Hawk (The Elephant), Dionne Warwick (The Mouse), Tom Bergeron (The Taco), Sarah Palin (The Bear), Bella Thorne (The Swan), JoJo Siwa (T-Rex), Rob Gronkowski (White Tiger), Jordyn Woods (The Kangaroo), Bret Michaels (The Banana), Hunter Hayes (Astro the Astronaut), Jackie Evancho (Miss Kitty), and Barry Zito (The Rhino) in a new light as they performed in front of a live audience. Now we're down to three, Frog, Turtle, and Night Angel. One of them will win the Golden Mask and be crowned King (or Queen) of Masked Singer.

- First up, the FROG confesses that the first time he alked onto the stage, he was lost. The more he pushed himself, the more he felt at home. He sings "Bad Boy for Life" by Black Rob, Mark Curry & Diddy.
- Second, the TURTLE admitted that he had no idea that this competition would change him as an artist. He's only grown a thicker shell because performing is what he was meant to do. He sings "Before You Go" by Lewis Capaldi
- Finally, the NIGHT ANGEL says that she was terrified to fail when she started this journey. She didn't find success as a solo artist, but she found success in other businesses to support her family. She sings "River Deep, Mountain High".

The final votes are locked...

UNMASKING #16: Coming just short in third place is... THE FROG! Before he hops out of here, we have final guesses. Ken thinks he's Kid Cudi, Jenny goes with Lil Romeo, and Nicole & Robin both say he's Bow Wow.
- THE FROG IS... rapper/actor Shad "Bow Wow" Moss!

And now, the moment of truth.

THE WINNER... and KING (OR QUEEN) OF MASKED SINGER IS......

....

....

....

.... NIGHT ANGEL!

UNMASKING #17: That means that the Turtle has to come out of his shell first. But we have guesses... Ken says he's Nick Jonas. Jenny says he's Jesse McCartney. Nicole agrees with Jenny. Robin is going with Adam Lambert.
- THE TURTLE IS... singer/actor Jesse McCartney!

FINAL UNMASKING: Before we salute the new Queen of Masked Singer, we have to find out who she is. Nicole says she's Taraji P. Henson. Ken says she's Tisha Campbell. Jenny & Robin agree on Kandi Burruss.
- NIGHT ANGEL IS.... "Real Housewife" KANDI BURRUSS!

"The Masked Singer" will return.

CHASE TAG: The three contestants will have to navigate an oval course without getting tagged by a Tagger. The last one standing gets three points, second place gets two, and the first tagged gets one. Any tagger who could avoid getting tagged within 2 minutes gets one bonus point. After the first tag, an additional tagger will take the field.
- TAGGING FOR THE MEN: The Flow (Tavon McVey), Geek (Omar Zaki), and The Kid (Corbin Reinhardt)
- MEN'S SCORE: Charlie has 3, Na'eem 2, and Juvie 1
- TAGGING FOR THE LADIES: Flame (Caitlin Hudson), Beach Boy (Travis DesLaurier), and Iron Giantess (Laura Micetich)
- LADIES' SCORE: Lisa has 3, Jessica 2, and Sarah 1.

DODGE TAG: The three players will have to run the course again, making their way to a scoring button. Each time it's hit without the player being tagged is worth 1 point. If the player is tagged, he or she must return to the start. The two players with the highest cumulative score after two minutes will move on.
- TAGGING FOR THE MEN: The Boss (Brooke Ence) & La Flair (Jesse La Flair)
- MEN'S SCORE: Charlie hit the button 4 times for a total of 7, Na'eem hit it 3 times for a total of 5. Juvie hit it once for a total of 2. Juvie's out.
- TAGGING FOR THE LADIES: Iron Giantess & Atomic Ant (Lorena Abreu)
- LADIES' SCORE: Jessica hit the button 4 times for a total of 6. Lisa hit it twice for a total of 5. Sarah hit it 3 times for a total of 4. She's done.

DOME TAG: This time, the players would be dodging three Taggers while climbing on a 30-foot-high dome with no harness. Longest time on the dome without being tagged wins 3 points; the other picks up 2. There's a 2-point bonus for anyone who lasts longer than 2 minutes.
- TAGGING FOR CHARLIE: Caveman (Josh Yadon), The Boss, and The Kid. He lasts 2:31 for 2 bonus points
- TAGGING FOR NA'EEM: Geek, Banshee (Carrie Bernans), and Big Deal (Austin Raye). He... misses both the 2 minutes and Charlie's time.
- MEN'S SCORE: Charlie leads, 12-7.

REVENGE TAG: The ladies will run through a maze again one Tagger. Whoever lasts longer wins 3 points, the other picks up 2. A bonus point will be awarded for anyone who can hit a scoring button before being tagged.
- TAGGING FOR LISA: La Flair. She lasts... 36 seconds.
- TAGGING FOR JESSICA: Spitfire (Sydney Olson). She lasts... 35 seconds for 3 plus a bonus for hitting the scoring button.
- LADIES' SCORE: Jessica leads, 10-7

FINAL SHOWDOWN: The players will run through the main course one more time, this time trying to make their way to the summit of the course to stop the clock without being tagged by one of two Taggers. Each players has three tags, and each tag removed would be a 5 second penalty. The leaders would get a second advantage for every point they were ahead.

First, the ladies.
- TAGGING FOR LISA: Spitfire & Banshee - 1:10 (+10 seconds for two tags
- TAGGING FOR JESSICA (+3 seconds): Flame & Atomic Ant - 1:43 (+10 seconds for two tags)
WINNER: LISA!

Now the men...
- TAGGING FOR NA'EEM: La Flair & Bulldog (Ruel DaCosta) - 0:54 (+10 seconds for two tags)
- TAGGING FOR CHARLIE (+5 seconds): The Flow & Geek - 0:42 (+5 seconds for a tag)
WINNER: CHARLIE!

Our first trip takes Chavis, Wally, & Yonathan to Cooper & 5th Street. They get three of the four $50s for $150. They get their second strike when they don't know what award is given by the RIAA for albums that sell more than 10 million copies (diamond status).
- SOCIAL MEDIA SHOUTOUT: Enraged by environmentally-unfriendly pods, Kill the K-Cup is a campaign targeting what single serve coffee company? Keurig... is RIGHT for $350!

DAILY MISSION: DECONTAMINATION - This is an individual challenge. Players will suit in hazmat suits and race through a room full of radioactive material(a/k/a Foam). At the back, there will be a series of colored flashing lights on a board flashing a sequence in a particular order. The players must then run back and stack discs in the correct color order. The fastest male and fastest female will win the challenge and become part of the Tribunal. Oh, BTW, TJ says he wants more red skulls - THIS IS A DOUBLE ELIMINATION WEEK! That means TWO GUYS WILL GO HOME and TWO GUYS WILL EARN RED SKULLS.

Nelson and Kyle scrap at the bar. Nelson calls him the biggest pu**y he ever played with and it gets physical(shoving match)

Kyle says he's digging himself a bigger grave. Melissa screams at Nelson. Nelson says if he fought Kyle he was done. He will see him at the Purgatory. Cory is shocked.

Bananas is shocked at Drunk Big T and she screws up her toe!

The producers take a Drunk Big T to the hospital. 3 Stitches later - she's back at the bunker.

TRIBUNAL: They choose - BEAR/CORY/JORDAN/KYLE

Purgatory: Fessy/Nelson come down and The Tribunal chooses(Not themselves): Jordan(unanimous) and Bear(2-1)

Fessy/Jordan and Nelson v. Bear

TWO DAY CHAMPION
Ben Scripps
Cadillac, MI
television director

$38,158
Nathan Berger
South Portland, ME
restaurateur & sommelier
Rachel Keen
Washington, DC
compliance specialist

JEOPARDY! ROUND: It Was All Yellow, German Animal Names; Hats All, Folks; The "End" Is Just The Beginning, Port Land, Out of Their League

Ben starts with $200 It Was All Yellow. Nathan finds the Daily Double under $600 German Animal Names. He wagers everything - "I could go $1000, but I've always wanted to say, 'Let's make it a true Daily Double.'" - on this: this bug's German name, stechmucke, translates to "stabbing gnat". "What is a mosquito?" That's right... but wasp drops him to zero. He revoers to $2600 to $7400 for Ben. Rachel on $1400 gets the board to start...

DOUBLE JEOPARDY!: Characters from American Folklore, Consecutive Oscar Nominations, Peace Talk, Literary Landmarks, Alexander the Great, High-Scoring 4-Letter Scrabble Words.

... with $400 Literary Landmarks. Ben finds the first Daily Double under $800 Alexander the Great. He fronts $2000 on this: Alexander tried to look to the future by consulting the this "of Zeus-Ammon" in the Sahara but never revealed what he had learned. "What is the Oracle?" RIGHT for $9800! Ben also finds the other under $1600 Characters from American Folklore. He tries to play catchup with $4600 on this: this Texan cowboy hero tamed a mountain lion & rode it like a horse, using a rattlesnake as a lasso. "Who is Pecos Bill?" That's right... but Sam Houston drops him to $5200 to end the round against $5800 for Rachel. But with $11,800, it's Nathan's game to lose.

FINAL JEOPARDY! in "Classic TV Sitcoms": "I Love Lucy" used the friend word "enceinte" in a 1952 episode title because CBS didn't want this word used. Correct response: what is pregnant?

Nathan wins $11,999! Ben leaves with $40,158.

Day 3 of Wayne's Favorite Folks week deals with something I would call WAYNE'S GOT TALENT. Every one in the audience today has some sort of talent that the show will showcase. For example, we start with Kyle the Karate Guy(violinist) and Denessa the Majorette(baton twirler). For you people under 30, we have three records(yes 45 rpms) on Jonathan's tray(red - 1, Blue - 2 and Green - 3).Each is hiding cash. Kyle can keep the red record or take Curtain 1. He takes the cash and Curtain 1 was a music room including Fender Electric Guitar, Fender Bass and Amps, along with a Pearl 5 Piece Drum Kit worth $4,517! Kyle wins $200. Denessa can take Curtain 2 or her record. She takes Curtain 2 and passes on Record 3 which was $300. 2 was the Biggest Cash Amount at $2,800! Denessa wins a trip to the Fiji Music Festival from YourParadise for 5N worth $11,036!

Julia the Fairy(opera singer/dancer) is playing GOLD RUSH for a Ford Fiesta Sedan worth $18,105! Here's how the game works. We have 8 boxes on stage. 6 have gold and two have dynamite(zonks). Julia must mine 5 pieces of gold in a row to win the Fiesta. That will take her from $500/$1,000/$2,000/$4,000/FIESTA. If Julia hits the dynamite, she is blown back to the bottom and must start over. If she hits the dynamite twice, the game is over. Her first pick is 3 and it is GOLD. She has $500 and Julia plays on with 7. It's DYNAMITE. She can still win the car. Julia picks 2 and it is GOLD. She has $500 again and STOPS. 6 was where the 2nd dynamite was hidden. 

Mackenzie the Ballerina(for real) has Curtain 2 which has a sound effects clue(to this recapper's ear it sounds like a lawn mower, but who knows?) . Will Mackenzie take Curtain 2 or Curtain 1 with no clue? She takes 1 and passes on a home theater(the sound clue was an old school film projector). Mackenzie could have won a 75" Smart LED HDTV, 4K Apple TV Streaming Box, rypen.com Media Credenza and Bose Surround Sound System worth $6,004! Mackenzie wins a LEMON CAR(ZONK)!

Malia the Flapper(tumbler) and Christopher the Doctor(Artist) each get $1,000. Each will be the boss of the deal. For example, Malia can buy the Big Box for $500(if she does, Christopher must do so as well). She does...they do...and they both win a high tech music studio with a Macbook, Roli Blocks tactile Musical Interface and headphones with $2,879! Christopher can buy the small box for his last $500(and Malia must do that as well). He does, they do...and they both add a Can-Am ATV worth $4,199! They both have $7,078 in prizes. Individual decisions time. Who keeps their prizes and who trades for the LMAD Envelope? No one trades for an 8-BIT ZONK VIDEO GAME(ZONK)!

It's time to play RACE TO THE FINISH with Artee(the Bollywood Indian Dancer). She can win a BBQ from Bull with Tools worth $3,424 AND a trip to Jamaica for 4N at the Jewel Paradise Cove Beach Resort & Spa worth $8,650 AND a VW Jetta Sedan worth $19,640! Here's how the game works. We have an oversized deck of 52 cards spread out on a table in front of Artee and Wayne. Artee will draw cards one at a time. She needs 5 hearts for the car, 4 spades for the trip to Jamaica and 3 diamonds for the BBQ. She is trying to avoid three clubs(ZONKS). If Artee wins a prize(or two prizes) and decides to play on, she is committed. She will either lose the prize(or prizes) she has won, or she will add on a 2nd prize or all three, depending on where she is in the game. Her first draw is the King of Hearts, 4 of spades, 4 of diamonds, Ace of Hearts, 6 of Hearts, 10 of Spades, King of Spades, 2 of Diamonds, 6 of clubs(ZONK 1), Ace of Spades(JAMAICA!) She is COMMITTED and goes on and picks the 10 of Diamonds(TRIP + BBQ). She has $12,074 in prizes. Here's the situation. She needs 2 hearts for the car but she is trying to avoid 2 zonks. If she goes for it, Artee is risking everything on a shot to win $31,714 in prizes! Artee STOPS! 

Last talented deal of the day involves Dwight(the Harmonica Player). He takes $1,000 over Curtain 3 which was a 3N stay at the D Las Vegas in LAS VEGAS and a stay at Rock N' Roll Fantasy Camp worth $9,983!
Who trades for a shot at $26,566? Denessa trades her Fiji Music Festival trip! 

She picks 3. 2 was an outdoor sports package with Stansport Camping Gear and a pair of Trek Hybrid Bikes worth $3,219! Denessa wins a high tech kitchen including smart fridge, range, dishwasher, and a $500 GC to Peet's Coffee worth $5,427! 1 had the Big Deal and it starts with a 7N stay at the Hotel Colon in BARCELONA AND a Mitsubishi Mirage G4 Sedan worth $26,566!

Morgan is looking for game 2 in his trivial triple crown.

ROUND 1: Morgan leads the challengers with 600 to 400 for April & 300 for Kristen. Jonathan has 600 to 500 for Muffy and 400 for Arianna.

ROUND 2: Going into our final 400-pointer, Kristen is mathematically eliminated with 300. It's still anyone's game on the Master Minds side with Jonathan at 1200, 700 for Muffy, and 400 for Arianna.
- 400-POINT QUESTION in "Theater": Debuting in 1964, what musical features Tevye, a poor dairyman in the village of Anatevka? April goes with "Fiddler on the Roof"... as does Jonathan. Both are right!

ROUND 3: Morgan beats April, 5100-2700. Muffy wins it over Jonathan, 4600-4500.
