Anthony Anderson revealed his identity after appearing as Rubber Ducky on the Season 10 premiere of The Masked Singer on Fox on Wednesday.
The 53-year-old actor received the lowest score among the five cast members and was eliminated from the show.
Ken Jeong, 54, was the only panelist to correctly guess his identity and was shocked.
“It’s a season 10 wonder,” Ken said. ‘I love you so much. You know how much I love you. You’re all about fun. You make me laugh so much. “Everything about you just screams fun.”
When he first took the stage, star Anthony, dressed in black, wore a Rubber Ducky costume, an elaborate, sequined duck in a bathtub. He shared clues to his identity, including a horror film, a picture of Leonardo DiCaprio and a turtle.

“I’ll quack my way to the finale,” Rubber Ducky said before he was unmasked.
Rubber Ducky sang Come On Eileen by Dexys Midnight Runners as bubbles filled the air. The panelists stood and sang along.
“This is the funniest performance of the night,” Ken said.
The show’s hosts, Men in Black, brought out a clue, which was a signed headshot of three ducks.
Robin Thicke, 46, thought it might be David Arquette because he came from a famous family. Jenny McCarthy, 50, thought it might be comedian Marlon Wayans.
Nicole Scherzinger, 45, suspected it could be Jaleel White of Family Matters.
After being exposed, Anthony said it was the “most bizarre thing” he had ever done.
“I’m naked under these bubbles right now,” Anthony said. “Don’t let the tights below the knees fool you. I should never have lost! I should never have lost! “Rubber Ducky is here forever.”

Her clues included performing in a national talent competition, wearing bulldogs and wearing a Hawaiian shirt. Gazelle took the stage and sang Alanis Morissette’s song Uninvited.
“Wow, that was incredible,” said show host Nick Cannon, 42.
“You completely dominated this stage,” Nicole said.
Comedian David Spade, 59, who hosted a new Fox show called Snake Oil, came out to provide a clue about a record that said “movie soundtrack.” Gazelle then shared that she not only acts in films but also sings in them.
“I feel like Riverdale actress Camila Mendes,” Jenny said. “Guess what the Riverdale mascot is – the bulldog, and we saw the bulldog in the clue package.”
Robin thought it might be Lucy Hale, but Nicole thought it might be her “dear friend” Vanessa Hudgens.

He then sang Journey’s hit Anyway You Want It. When he finished, the crowd went crazy for him and chanted his name.

“Who is this bad boy?” said Robin.

“Could that be Adam Levine?” Nicole said. “You know Adam a little bit from the doghouse, but he is undoubtedly a great artist and singer.”
“And some people don’t like him,” Jenny said.
“This might just be the biggest star of 2023, Tom Sandoval,” Ken said. “Sandoval, if I can call you that, Sandoval is a great singer!”
Jenny thought it might be Scott Disick.
“He’s a neighbor,” Ken said. “Lives down the street, voice of an angel, salt of the earth.”
S’More came out smiling with a graham cracker marshmallow hat. S’More’s clues included a tip jar, a Chicago deep dish pizza and a Christmas tree. S’More then took the stage and sang Niall Horan’s song “Slow Hands” and ended his performance by handing Nicole a stick of marshmallows.

“This is the sexiest sex I’ve ever seen,” Nicole said as Jenny ate one of the marshmallows.
A note was put out that said, “Starring s’more.” Robin told Jenny, who was still eating the marshmallows, that he didn’t think they were real.
“It matches every other part of my body,” Jenny joked.
Nicole thought it could be Joey McIntyre from New Kid on the Block, while Jenny thought it could be American Idol alum Justin Guarini.
“He’s got a killer voice and he’s got those moves,” Jenny said.
Robin thought it might be Kevin Richardson from the Backstreet Boys.
Cow, wearing a red dress and granny glasses, was the final singer. Cow shared references including coffee, the Fourth of July, Las Vegas and that she won Grammys. The cow sang the song “Bones” by Imagine Dragons.
“I think it’s a guy,” Nicole said.
