Entertainment Fox Bet Launches 'Masked Singer' Season 5 Contest Where Fans Can Win Cash for Correct Guesses
'The Masked Dancer' Eliminates Another Celeb Contestant: And the Exotic Bird Is…
(Warning: This post contains spoilers for Wednesday's "The Masked Dancer.") And then there were four. Fox's "The Masked Singer" spinoff series, "The Masked Dancer," cut another contestant from its remaining lineup of five competitors on Wednesday's episode. On the episode, Tulip, Exotic Bird, Cotton Candy, Sloth and Zebra all took the stage to perform their chosen dances. After each of those competitors shook what their mamas gave them, it was time for panelists Ken Jeong, Paula Abdul, Brian Austin Green, Ashley Tisdale and guest judge Mayim Bialik to vote for their favorite dancers and, in doing so, determine this week's weakest performer.
Are you one of those fans of "The Masked Singer" whose predictions are scary accurate each season? Well, then the Fox singing competition has some great news for you, as its upcoming fifth season is partnering with the Fox Bet Super 6 app to give viewers a chance to win cash prizes for their correct guesses.
Per Fox, ahead of each episode of Season 5 users on the free-to-play app will be presented with six questions to predict what will happen during that night's show.
"For every correct answer, users of the app will receive an entry into a prize drawing where a total of $20,000 will be given away each week," the broadcast network says. "There will be multiple winners each week. Users who enter the sweepstakes every week will receive an extra entry into a grand prize sweepstakes with a $100,000 grand prize, which could be awarded to a single player following the show's season finale in May."

To be clear the free-to-play Fox Bet Super 6, does not accept wagers of any kind, including on the identities of celebrities under the hit singing competition's elaborate costumes. And Fox Bet — which, as it sounds is Fox's owned and operated betting app — does take wagers, obviously, it does not take any action on entertainment. However, other betting apps and websites have taken light action on "The Masked Singer" reveals.
"The Masked Singer" is pre-taped, which makes taking action a risky proposition, but these prop bets usually have a low monetary limit and are essentially considered a write-off for marketing and attracting new and/or casual users. "The Masked Singer" audience (which has been made up of a lucky group of at-home "superfans" and a much, much smaller studio crowd due to the pandemic) and participating talent are all required to sign NDAs.
