Watch: Hunter Hayes Reveals the Toughest Part of "The Masked Singer"

How's everybody doing tonight? Pretty boring time? Nothing going on? 

While you're killing time waiting for nothing in particular, why not take a little trip down Masked Singer memory lane? We've now witnessed more than 50 unmaskings over the course of three and a half seasons, and some have definitely hit harder than others. Sometimes our reaction actually does match the suspiciously shocked faces of the audience members and other times, all we can do is say, "Who?" 

In order to distract ourselves, we've updated our ranking of all of the reveals so far, in order from least to most thrilling. Remember when Sarah Palin was a Bear? And when Bella Thorne was a Swan? Bret Michaels was also a Banana once! 

This show has given us some truly wild moments since it first premiered in January 2019 (practically an entire lifetime ago), and now it's time to take a little look back. 

Meet the Cast of The Masked Singer Season 4

Scroll down to see all of the reveals ranked, starting with some of those we were not quite so impressed by. 

Jackie Evancho as Kitty

No offense to Jackie Evancho, but...who? Apparently she was on America's Got Talent but we could not have told you that when she took off her mask. 

Mark Sanchez as the Baby Alien

So sorry to Mark Sanchez but we did not immediately know who he was when he took off his elaborate Baby Alien puppet situation. That seems to always happen to us with the sports stars. 

Busta Rhymes as the Dragon

The first contestant to be eliminated always gets the short end of the stick. We hardly knew the Dragon before he was outed as Busta Rhymes, so all we really had time to say was "Oh." 

Tommy Chong as the Pineapple

Few things have been more obvious in life than the fact that Tommy Chong was the Pineapple, in a good way. Tommy Chong knows his brand. 

Antonio Brown as the Hippo

This was the show's very first reveal back in season one and don't worry if you totally forgot it ever happened, because we did too! 

Clint Black and Lisa Hartman Black as the Snow Owls

We won't lie and say we weren't disappointed by this one, because we were. We got so caught up in the idea of the Snow Owls and the fact that there were two of them that we never even got close to guessing this iconic country couple. 

Paul Anka as Broccoli

We're really sorry but when we hear Paul Anka, we think of Gilmore Girls and Lorelai's dog. That is entirely Gilmore Girls' fault. So sorry. 

Laila Ali as the Panda

Laila Ali was once revealed to be the Panda! Good for Laila Ali! 

Rob Gronkowski as the White Tiger

Of course Rob Gronkowski was the White Tiger on The Masked Singer. Of course! 

Terry Bradshaw as the Deer

If we were Terry Bradshaw we would wear this costume around our house because it really just works for him. 

Paul Shaffer as the Skeleton

Paul Shaffer really embodied that Skeleton and that kooky Skeleton really represented the essence of Paul Shaffer. They feel one in the same. 

Hunter Hayes as the Astronaut

The Astronaut was so good that he had to be a professional singer, and he was! This was not a surprise! 

Dr. Drew as the Eagle

Once upon a time, Dr. Drew Pinsky was dressed as an Eagle singing Meatloaf. Feels like more of a fever dream than something that actually happened. 

Barry Zito as the Rhino

Recently someone was talking about Barry Zito for some reason and we were like "Oh my god, the Rhino?!" At least he made some kind of impact on us! 

JoJo Siwa as the T-Rex

The T-Rex was so clearly JoJo Siwa that we've never been less shocked to see a person take off a dinosaur mask. But when it comes to being exciting, that appears to be JoJo's only mode. 

Rumer Willis as the Lion

We all knew the Lion was Rumer from day one, but this still would have been way more exciting if she hadn't had to awkwardly deny it so many times. 

Tori Spelling as the Unicorn

Tori Spelling on The Masked Singer just feels right, and thus not all that shocking. 

Ninja as the Ice Cream

Honestly, justice for Ice Cream and Egg. They got unmasked in the same season two premiere episode and it really took the excitement out of both of them a little bit. Sorry for Ice Cream, but Egg wins here just because the Egg was a truly insane costume we were all obsessed with before the season premiered. 

Lonzo Ball as Whatchamacallit

Basketball player Lonzo Ball did not knock our socks off but it was nice to see him. 

Taylor Dayne as Popcorn

Taylor Dayne is a name we hadn't heard in a while so it was sort of exciting to be reminded that she exists and so do hit songs like "Tell It To My Heart." 

Ricki Lake as the Raven

Ricki Lake, where you been? It was nice to see this former talk show host taking the stage again, especially after what she had been through over the past few years with losing her ex-husband. Not shocking, but a pleasant reveal. 

Bret Michaels as the Banana

"Bret Michaels is the Banana" is absolutely one of the funnier sentences to come out of this show. 

Aloe Blacc as Mushroom

Mushroom was such a mystery all season and he was so talented that it was just exciting to find out who he was. Aloe Blacc is not exactly the biggest celebrity but dang he's got some pipes! 

Ana Gasteyer as the Tree

Ana's literally got Scheddy Balls on her Tree costume, reminding us she's been making us laugh for decades and she's not stopping now. 

Dr. Elvis Francois as the Serpent

Dr. Elvis is an incredibly good singer and had us fooled that he was a Hamilton cast member or someone similar, so he was a little bit disappointing. Really great singer, though, and absolutely fitting that in 2020, The Masked Singer would feature a doctor who was a) good at singing and b) not Ken Jeong

Brian Austin Green as the Giraffe

BAG was the Giraffe and now he's a panelist on the new show The Masked Dancer. It feels like a joke but it's not! 

Sherri Shepherd as the Penguin

Are we alone in being unable to look at Sherri Shepherd without hearing her say "HAM!" on 30 Rock

Kelly Osbourne as the Ladybug

Ladybug very cleverly disguised her voice with a Southern accent but Osbournes fans knew what was up. 

Tori Kelly as the Seahorse

Tori Kelly's voice pretty unmistakably always belonged to the Seahorse so this one wasn't even sort of a surprise, but good to see Tori showing off her impeccable skills. 

Chloe Kim as the Jellyfish

Chloe Kim is an Olympic gold medal-winning snowboarder who also sings well enough to make it to the semi-finals of The Masked Singer with Tori Kelly and Taylor Dayne. That's simply too many talents!
