‘The Masked Singer’ sends home 2 celebrities in double elimination
LOS ANGELES - It was a double unmasking on Wednesday night’s new episode of "The Masked Singer."
In the "round one finals," all three finalists in "Group A" returned for one last time, performing for a chance to make it to the finale.
This meant two celebrities would be unmasked, while only one contestant would advance to the finale in hopes to win the Golden Mask Trophy.
Jorge Garcia revealed on ‘The Masked Singer’
This time, actor and comedian Jorge Garcia was the first person to be unmasked and sent home.
"I would have loved to stay longer, but I got to sing three songs, and I’m really happy with what I did here," Garcia, known for shows including "Lost" and "Hawaii Five-0," said of his experience during an exit interview. "It’s a real honor getting to be a part of the show and get such a cool costume, so I feel at peace with it," Garcia added.

Despite all the "Lost" clues provided throughout the weeks, none of the panelists were able to guess that Garcia was the one in the Cyclops costume and behind the mask.
"Now that I’ve been on the show, I have a lot more respect for what the people on the show have to do when they’re in these big costumes," he continued, adding, "It’s a whole different ballgame."
