‘The Masked Dancer’: Is Zebra a Performer? Plus 3 Guest Panelists Revealed (VIDEO)

Singing or dancing doesn’t have to be a celebrity’s profession to appear on the Masked shows, but might one of the contestants on the spinoff be trained?

That’s what the panelists are thinking about Zebra in TV Insider’s exclusive sneak peek of the January 6 episode of The Masked Dancer. The Group B Premiere introduces the remaining five contestants — Sloth, Ice Cube, Zebra, Cotton Candy, and Moth — and the panelists are picking up things about one of them outside of the dancing.

Ken Jeong thinks Zebra “may be a trained dancer” and says he’s “been in character from the very beginning.” Brian Austin Green agrees, suggesting he’s “a performer who moves really well.” Watch the clip above to find out why and to see Paula Abdul dancing a bit in her seat.
