Former Olympic hero and reality star Caitlyn Jenner made her debut at "The Masked Singer," and she did it to show transgender kids that anything is possible.

From her costume to her actual performance, Jenner looked inspiring. The 71-year-old chose to make her bow as Phoenix because she wanted an outfit that would be gender-neutral.

Although her luck ran out as she was easily guessed and was voted out, the night was still thrilling for the former Olympic champion.


Speaking of her experience on the show, Jenner admitted that she had no experience singing or dancing as she grew up as an athlete, skilled in running and throwing things. 

The "Secrets of My Life" author said she signed up for the competition because she knew it would be fun and presented her with a new challenge.

Jenner said that by appearing on the widely televised show, she wanted to show transgender kids that they "can go through this."

The 71-year-old revealed that she is committed to helping little kids realize that they can be transgender and have a normal life and career.

Jenner admitted that while growing up, it was difficult for people to open up and identify. She remarked that everyone felt like they were wearing a mask to hide their true self.


The reality star added that the internet has made it easier for kids to identify these days, but her goal is to use education to make them realize how possible it is for them to be accepted in society.

Speaking of her experience, Jenner admitted that she had tremendous support from her kids and remarked that family support is everything.


Although her relationship with her eldest kids and the Kardashians can be shaky, Jenner finds it easy to bond with her daughter Kylie.

While the 71-year-old agreed she has many similarities with her 25-year-old daughter Kendall, it is Kylie that she is closest to.

She revealed that she and the 23-year-old beauty mogul spend more quality time than she does with anyone else. While Kendall is more difficult to figure out, Jenner likens Kylie to an open book.
