March 17 (UPI) -- Olympic gold medalist and reality TV star Caitlyn Jenner -- dressed as a phoenix -- was eliminated from Season 5 of The Masked Singer Wednesday night.
Jenner, 71, told UsMagazine.com her son Brandon was in on her secret, but she was excited for the rest of her family to see her on the singing competition series.
"Kendall and Kylie, when I told them I was doing The Masked Singer, they gave me this strange look and said, 'Dad, why are you doing this?'" Jenner said. "I told them: 'I need a challenge! I've just been sitting around, I want to do this.' They said, 'You are crazy.' I'm interested for Kendall and Kylie and the rest of my family to see it."
