Who Is The Cotton Candy?

Clues: The clue package started with The Cotton Candy talking about how love has always taken a backseat in her life. There was a cup with a supergirl picture on it in the clue package. She said four years of her life flew by and she has done a ton of traveling. In the background were some images of destinations she has traveled to. The word “boss” was highlighted in the clue package. The Cotton Candy was also standing in a cute bedroom with a bed that has a heart patterned comforter on it.

Performance: The set had signs that resembled the New York City Subway. This cheerleading themed routine was extremely high-energy. In the middle of the routine, the music switched to “Hey Mickey.” The Cotton Candy began stepping along to a tune of her own. She did multiple high kicks and leaps throughout the routine. In this episode, the contestants went with a Valentine’s Day theme and read a valentine that connects with one of the judges. The Cotton Candy said that guest judge Will Arnett has given her love on The Masked Singer and now she is giving him love. Her one-word clue after the performance is “cover girl.”

Judges Guesses: Will guessed Tara Lipinski because when he was a guest judge on The Masked Singer, that was one of the guesses he made. Brian Austin Green agreed with this guess. Ashley is convinced that it’s Simone Biles. Paula guessed that it is Gabby Douglas because she was on an episode of Undercover Boss.

After the performance, The Cotton Candy gave an undercover clue. She said that she is a “fierce performer” and has gone up against fierce competition before.

Who Is The Sloth?

Clues: The Sloth held a pita bread on a plate and took a bite out of it in the clue package. He said that he found true love. When he was younger he was a bad boy and a ladies’ man. The Sloth was lonely until he met the love of his life. There was a stethoscope in the clue package. A stork also flew across the screen.

Performance: The Sloth danced to “Dancing With A Stranger” in another comedic routine. He wore a bright yellow suit and did a partner routine that required both ballroom skills and hilarious acting abilities. There were quite a few quirky moments with him doing pelvic thrusts or shaking his bum. His Valentine’s Day clue said that he has worked with one of Brian’s co-stars. His one-word clue after the performance is “app.”

Judges Guesses: Ken thinks it’s Patrick Dempsey under the mask because he was always a ladies’ man. Paula thinks it is Maksim Chmerkovskiy from Dancing With The Stars. Brian thinks it’s Maks’s brother Val Chmerkovskiy.

His undercover clue after the performance is that competing runs in the family and he just wants to make them proud.

He knows the person he lost is going to be watching his performance from up above.

Performance: This was a Las Vegas-inspired jazz routine that involved a lot of traditional moves. A pool table was on the far right of the stage as he danced with his partner.

Who Is The Tulip?

Clues: There was a clue of an iceberg coming out of The Tulip’s back like wings. There was also a clue that referenced sleeping. She said she is the youngest left in the competition and that some things never change. She misses her best bud even though she has taken home more trophies than her.
