“The Masked Singer” showcased four celebrities on the November 20 episode who were disguised as the Flamingo, Flower, Leopard and Rottweiler. One of this newly formed group of contestants was eliminated by the four judges (Ken Jeong, Jenny McCarthy, Nicole Scherzinger and Robin Thicke) at the end of this episode, which was titled “Mask and You Shall Receive.”
Of this quartet of contenders to win season 2 of “The Masked Singer,” one of the best all-around talents has been the Flamingo. She has impressed the judges and the audiences at home and in the studio with her singing and dancing. She first appeared back in week 2 when she rocked the house with her version of “Sucker” by the Jonas Brothers. She returned in week 4 with a cover of the Kenny Loggins‘ classic “Footloose” that had everyone on their feet. And in the second episode of week 5, her voice soared singing the Loren Allred hit “Never Enough.”
We’ve watched those three performances by the Flamingo repeatedly and have studied her clues video as well. We think we’ve figured out her true identity. Keep reading for the first of this week’s “The Masked Singer” spoilers.

We are sure that the Flamingo is Adrienne Bailon Houghton, who co-hosts “The Real” talk show. Adrienne first came to fame almost two decades ago as part of the girl group 3LW. She then appeared in a series of Disney Channel movies as one of the Cheetah Girls, alongside Raven-Symone, who was unmasked as the Black Widow earlier this season on “The Masked Singer.”
Collectively “The Masked Singer” contestants have racked up 69 Emmy nominations. Adrienne has won one of her five Emmy races: a 2018 victory she shared in with the rest of “The Real” hosts.
The Flamingo talks of her love of the tropical life; Adrienne often chronicles her fun in the sun, including a recent trip to Hawaii, on Instagram.
The Flamingo says she loves her mask almost as much as mascara. Adrienne dispenses beauty advice on both “The Real” and her YouTube series “All Things Adrienne.” In the clues video we see the word “Zootube,” a play on the word “Youtube.”
The Flamingo is bright pink and that color is seen throughout the clues video; Adrienne is well-known for her love of all things pink. She even went so far as to make that the main color of her Christmas decorations last year.
What do you think of our guess? Who do you think is hiding inside the Flamingo costume? Sound off in the comments section below.
