Fans were highly disappointed when a social media influencer with a questionable reputation popped out of the Grandpa Monster suit as they took to Twitter to share their thoughts.
"The Masked Singer" show has revealed its newest participant, and the viewers are not satisfied with the clues that the show chose to point toward the Grandpa Monster's identity over the last few episodes.
Fans were evidently upset when the social media influencer Logan Paul appeared from within the costume that he has been wearing on every episode over the last couple of weeks, with the show making use of some controversial clues.

"The Masked Singer" took to Twitter to share the video where Paul is revealed as the latest contestant to drop out, and a plethora of comments expressing the fans' disappointment ensued.
Known as a social media influencer that has found himself in the middle of various controversies due to his lack of sensitivity, the celebrity singing competition had its viewers questioning why they would invite Paul onto the show. One fan commented:
"Are you guys having a hard time getting people on this season? First a literal puppet and then Logan Paul? Pretty disappointing..."
The show's choice in clues for the identity of Grandpa Monster also had fans scratching their heads. The character was seen wandering through a forest as the clues were displayed with the location as a clue in itself.
Caitlyn Jenner was also featured in the celebrity singing competition, dressed up as a red phoenix.
The forest pointed to the controversial video that Paul uploaded in 2018 of him in Aokigahara, known as the "suicide forest." The video seemed to feature a corpse which had the influencer on the verge of being canceled.
FOLLOWING THE CONTROVERSY
Despite his hefty donation of $1 million to a suicide prevention foundation and an abundance of apologies after the video caused some serious backlash, it seems that it still follows him where ever he goes.
The clues of his love for Dwayne Johnson and singing "Bad Reputation," which he evidently has, wasn't enough for the panel to correctly guess that Paul was the one singing in the Grandpa Monster suit making his reveal a major surprise.
Although Paul's appearance on the show caused some raised eyebrows, "The Masked Singer" managed to get a hold of some other heavy-hitting celebrities to jump into character this season.
Caitlyn Jenner was also featured in the celebrity singing competition, dressed up as a red phoenix. During the St. Patrick's Day episode, Jenner revealed that she was the celeb singing from within the mythical creature.
The celebrities also stretch onto the judging panel as Robin Thicke, Nicole Scherzinger, Ken Jeong, and Jenny McCarthy are seen guessing along with the fans at home about who is sharing their talents from within their costumes.
Although the strange yet gripping competition is a hit with the American audience, it didn't find its origin in the USA. "The Masked Singer" was first kick-started in South Korea in 2015 and eventually made its way over.
