Another singer has been unmasked on the hit show "The Masked Singer," and it's definitely hard to keep up with all the surprising contestants they've shown so far.

Season five of "The Masked Singer" is getting more exciting as three singers have been unmasked. The first to be eliminated was the Snail, who turned out to be Kermit the Frog. Kermit is known as a fictional frog puppet, surprising everyone when he was unveiled under the mask. 

Some were relieved that the Raccoon was unmasked, as while they consider him an excellent actor, they didn't care for his singing very much.



In week two, Caitlyn Jenner was unmasked as the Phoenix. It wasn't difficult to figure out her identity, given she is unapologetically herself. However, it was a treat for the show's viewers to see her jamming to the famous Ke$ha song "TiK ToK."

The most recent to be unmasked on the show was the Raccoon, who turned out to be actor Danny Trejo. He was sent home following a wildcard, where the Orca gets to compete. Trejo is famous for his films "Heat," "Con Air," "Bubble Boy," and "Desperado." 



When viewers saw him behind the mask, they couldn't help but show their Twitter reactions to express their delight. While some knew from his voice alone that the Raccoon was indeed Trejo, many were surprised. 

Some were relieved that he was unmasked, as while they consider him an excellent actor, they didn't care for his singing very much. "I thought it was him. I love his acting. His singing... not so much," one fan admitted.



While Trejo joining "The Masked Singer" was a great experience for the 76-year-old, Jenner had an entirely different reason for wanting to get up on stage. According to the former "Keeping Up With the Kardashians" star, she had a message she wanted to give children.

The former Olympian left a strong message for the transgender community, especially younger ones, to grow up to be whoever they want to be. She wanted kids to realize that they could follow their hearts and transition while having a normal life and career.
