The Cricket contestant was bumped off “The Masked Dancer” Wednesday and revealed to be singer-songwriter Brian McKnight. But before his unmasking, McKnight — who is the fourth celeb to be eliminated from “The Masked Singer” spinoff series’ debut season — was assumed by the judges (with the exception of Paula Abdul) to be multiple other stars, including some very physically fit ones.
“I think sometimes they are looking at height and build, and it was kind of flattering, on the one hand, for somebody to think that I was Ryan Reynolds or that I was a swimmer,” the “Back at One” singer told TheWrap. “It’s not too bad at 51 years old to be thought of as people that the general public think are the most fit, the best-looking people in the world. I was actually flattered by that.”
