With FOX's The Masked Singer set to return for a fifth season starting next week, viewers already know that there's one big change in store already with the new wildcard rounds. Each round features new masked celebrities (costumes not yet revealed) who will have the opportunity to take the stage to unseat another contestant and take their spot on the road to The Golden Mask Trophy. We've also had the opportunity to meet Chameleon, Grandpa Monster, Phoenix, and Russian Doll masks- and now we can add another name to the list of this season's competitors.
