The Masked Singer: Christine Quinn reveals identity after performing as Scorpio on hit Fox show
Christine Quinn revealed her identity after the Selling Sunset star performed as Scorpio on Wednesday’s episode of The Masked Singer on Fox.
The 34-year-old reality star gave an inspirational speech after being unmasked during the ’80s Night themed episode.
‘Well, I call myself a closet singer,’ Christine said. ‘So, the fact that I’m here on the stage singing in front of people just goes to show that anything is possible if you put your mind to it and practice.’
Christine as Scorpio wore a gold crustacean outfit with a giant tail and made it all the way to the Battle Royale before she was eliminated.
Her clues included: athletic balls, a photo of a house, and a red suit. She sang Girls Just Want To Have Fun by Cyndi Lauper while panelists Ken Jeong, 53, and Nicole Scherzinger, 44, danced to the music.

‘I am a girl that just wants to have fun. You did us proud tonight,’ Jenny McCarthy, 50, said.
Before she was unmasked, Robin and Jenny thought she might be a Real Housewife. Jenny insisted that Scorpio was Denise Richards, but Robin Thicke, 46, said he thought it was her former co-star Lisa Rinna. Ken guessed Heidi Klum, but Nicole thought it was Willa Ford. All the panelists were wrong.
‘I thought that you really rocked it,’ Robin told Christine after she unmasked.
‘I was like, if I’m going to do it, I’m going out with a bang,’ Christine said.
Show host Nick Cannon, 42, asked Christine what made her want to do the show.
‘Well, I’ve always loved the show, and I was like, ”I wanna be on that show’,’ Christine said. ‘That’s so fun. I want to do it.’
‘Your enthusiasm and your energy has probably been the best this entire season,’ Nicole said.
‘And your stage presence, you owned the stage like you’ve done this before,’ Jenny said.

Robin had on a Michael Jackson inspired coat and Jenny did a stage dive into the crowd wearing sequined pants and bright pink tube top.
Doll, with buttons for eyes and his mouth stapled shut, was the first contestant of the episode.
The scary contestant shared clues to his identity that included a house full of animals, a playbill, a flag, and hairspray. Doll sang Simple Minds song Don’t You (Forget About Me) and the crowd cheered for him when he finished.
‘I love the song choice,’ Robin said. ‘There was such elegance and a seasoned performer. This person knows how to work a crowd. You got the crowd in the palm of your hand.’
‘Best crowd-worker,’ Ken said.
Erik Estrada, 74, from the hit series CHiPs appeared on stage to give another clue about Doll. Jenny hid under her desk and Nicole revealed that Erik was her crush.

‘Listen I got a thing for guys who play cops on TV and you were the first,’ Jenny said. ‘In the 80’s, I had a poster of you on my bedroom wall.’
Erik wrote ‘ghostwriter’ on a ticket book as the clue. Jenny thought it was someone in the Motley Crue family. Ken thought it was Donnie Wahlberg, Jenny’s husband.
‘It’s not Donnie Wahlberg,’ Jenny said.
Ken asked Jenny how she could be so sure it wasn’t him.
‘I know this Ken because Donnie Wahlberg is right there,’ Jenny said, pointing to her husband wearing an 80’s tracksuit in the audience.
Nicole thought it might be Sebastian Bach.
Moose, a giant furry creature wearing a plaid shirt and huge antlers, went next. Moose shared clues that included that he was born in the Midwest, a varsity jacket, and that he was king on a favorite show.

For final guesses, Robin thought it might be Jon Lovitz. Ken was confident it was John Goodman. Nicole guessed Ed O’Neill from Married with Children and Modern Family but only Jenny guessed correctly that it was George Wendt who played Norm on the hit show Cheers
‘We got a legend in the building,’ Nick said after Moose was unmasked.
Nick then asked George, 74, why he came on the show.
‘I thought maybe I’d win,’ George quipped.
Good answer: ‘I thought maybe I’d win,’ George Wendt quipped when asked why he decided to appear on the show
‘You are not far off, they love the Moose,’ Nick said.
Ken told him that Cheers was one of his favorite shows and that he had seen every episode. The crowd cheered ‘Norm!’
‘You are one of my influences and it is just an honor to see you on the stage,’ Ken said.
Nick asked if there was anything he wanted to say to his fans and the panel.
‘Let’s go have a beer,’ George said.
