Spoilers ahead for the latest episode of The Masked Singer, “Date Night.”

Fox singing competition The Masked Singer has eliminated another contestant in the latest episode. With Group B up this week, the performances were pretty amazing, at least for the most part. A Wildcard contestant was brought on and the Caterpillar officially made himself a serious contender. However, when it came time for elimination, Cupcake was sent home. Now the person behind the mask is giving advice to future contestants.

When Cupcake took off its mask, it was revealed that three-time Grammy winner Ruth Pointer of the Pointer Sisters was in the disguise. Following the elimination, Pointer spoke to EW about her time on the series and even gave advice to the future Masked Singer contestants:

I'll just tell them to go for it. It's a lot of fun. The people accommodate you in every way that you could possibly need them for. They're really, really accommodating for all your needs, and patient, and just polite, and they make it to where it was really a pleasure for me to look forward to going every day that I had to go. It's a fun time. It's like Halloween on steroids.

"Halloween on steroids" is probably the best description I’ve heard for The Masked Singer! All of those costumes are so insane and incredible. But while it’s fun to be wearing something so ridiculous, it’s probably not the most comfortable thing to wear on stage while singing and dancing. Though it sounds like the crew on the series tries to make it as comfortable as possible, which is as much as anyone can ask for while wearing a giant Cupcake costume.

Not everyone enjoys the costumes they pick, as last week’s eliminated contestant Larry the Cable Guy almost immediately regretted his choice of the Baby costume. Performing on The Masked Singer always seems like a great, once-in-a-lifetime experience until you have to wear a giant costume every week while singing and dancing. Even though every contestant undoubtedly hopes to win, I’m sure there is just a bit of hope that they will be eliminated so they no longer have to put up with the disguise. Or at least some relief when they can take it off!

There is currently no finale date for Season 6 of The Masked Singer but with plenty more contestants yet to take off their mask, fans are surely in for a wild ride. Just who will be unmasked next? Catch The Masked Singer on Wednesdays at 8 p.m. EST on Fox to find out, followed by new series Alter Ego.
