"I'd be going to the market and somebody would say, 'I know he's the raccoon!.' I'd be like: 'No, didn't you see me in Heat? I did Con Air. I'm not the raccoon. What's the raccoon?' I think my best acting jobs have been in Vons Market, when women started telling me I was the raccoon!" Trejo told Variety.

Caitlyn Jenner and Kermit the Frog were previously eliminated from the competition this season.

Niecy Nash is filling in as host since the show's usual emcee, Nick Cannon, was battling the coronavirus when the episode was taped.

Ken Jeong, Jenny McCarthy, Nicole Scherzinger and Robin Thicke are back for another season as judges.

Country singer LeAnn Rimes was crowned the winner of Season 4 of The Masked Singer.
