“My fans and supporters, they really know my story. And I’m an open book,” latest unmasked singer tells TheWrap (Warning: This post contains spoilers for tonight’s episode of “The Masked Singer.”) The artist formerly known as Robopine — and formerly, formerly known as Porcupine — was unmasked on Wednesday’s “The Masked Singer” to reveal actor and singer Tyrese Gibson. And before he took his spiky head off, judge Nicole Scherzinger and guest panelist Chrissy Metz were sure Robopine had to be the “Fast & Furious” franchise alum, due to the episode’s clues about him being a blockbuster film star who had lost a dear friend, a reference to the late Paul Walker. But Scherzinger and Metz weren’t the only ones to decipher Robopine’s true identity, as some “Masked Singer” Season 5 viewers had been guessing he was Tyrese ever since he appeared on the season premiere. Gibson told TheWrap he was worried that would happen from the moment he signed on to the Fox singing competition, given how much is known about him and how “obvious” some clues would be. “I told them, if you do some of the most obvious ones, it’s going to be a dead giveaway,” Gibson said. “My fans and supporters, they really know my story. And I’m an open book.” That’s why Gibson said he “loved it” when Robin Thicke, Jenny McCarthy and Ken Jeong all gave incorrect guesses (Terrence Howard, Jamie Foxx and Wesley Snipes, respectively), because at least he managed to fool some of them with his Robopine persona. “For one, my goal was to throw them off with my clues,” the singer said. “I said to the producers, if you guys are willing to work with me, I have a lot of information out there about my life. I’ve written two New York Times bestsellers, I’ve put all my business out there about my childhood, my backstory, who I am, the challenges that I’ve had to survive growing up in South Central LA. So I said, a lot of artists, they are not as much of an open book as I am, so if you start going into your usual clue packages, everybody is going to know it’s me. And they listened — but in certain areas they didn’t listen.” He continued: “If anything, I’m considered a person who overshares. And I said, guys, there’s a lot of people that are on this show that are more mysterious than me, they keep a lot of their personal stuff close to the vest. I said, I am not that guy, so if you start hinting at anything that’s too obvious, my fans and supporters are going to know it’s me. And every time they put some obvious stuff up there, my Instagram and Twitter just went crazy. And I could not post about Robopine, nothing.” As we mentioned before, Robopine wasn’t always Robopine — a name change that came directly from Gibson, who decided to take a more creative approach to being the robot porcupine. “That was me being innovative. I want to figure out a way to entertain,” he said. “I think sometimes people do these really fun shows that are very fun and for kids, ‘American Idol,’ ‘The Voice,’ this and that. I think a lot of times people will do those type of shows and then they go out there and take things way too seriously. And I wanted Robopine to be fun. That was my goal.” “And so when they came out and said Porcupine, I was like, ‘I’m sorry. That is not my name, my name is Robopine,'” he added. “I saw all the dancers and the dudes with the little men in black suits, and it felt like an M.C. Hammer moment. That’s why I came out dancing to M.C. Hammer and I had to correct them on what my name was, because I wanted to make it fun. I didn’t want to go in there taking things way too serious. And hopefully Robopine, even though I didn’t win, hopefully Robopine is a memorable character because they’re going to say, ‘Man, this dude was a lot of fun.'” “The Masked Singer” airs Wednesdays at 8/7c on Fox.

Five competitors remain (Warning: This post contains spoilers for Wednesday’s “The Masked Singer.”) “The Masked Singer” returned to its classic format on Wednesday after taking a week off from eliminations for its first-ever “Masky Awards” episode last week. That meant at the end of tonight’s episode, one of the remaining “Spicy Six” contestants was cut from the lineup and unmasked. The returning competitors were Russian Doll(s), Robopine (f.k.a. Porcupine), Yeti, Chameleon, Black Swan and Piglet. Each one performed for judges Jenny McCarthy, Ken Jeong, Nicole Scherzinger, Robin Thicke, guest panelist Chrissy Metz and host Nick Cannon, while also giving a few more clues about their identities. In fact, each contestant was technically unmasked, but wore visors to completely cover their faces as they revealed some hints about themselves. At the end of the hour, it was time for the judges and the at-home audience to cast their votes for the night’s best singer and, in doing so, decide who would be going home. The contestant with the fewest votes ended up being Robopine, who had performed Boyz II Men’s “Water Runs Dry.” Robopine was unmasked to reveal singer, model and actor Tyrese Gibson. Before his true identity was revealed, Scherzinger and Metz correctly guessed he was Gibson, while the other judges’ incorrect guesses were Jamie Foxx, Wesley Snipes and Terrence Howard. Along with Gibson’s Robopine, the previously eliminated “Masked Singer” Season 5 contestants include Kermit the Frog (Snail), Caitlyn Jenner (Phoenix), Mark McGrath (Orca), Logan Paul (Grandpa Monster), Danny Trejo (Raccoon), Bobby Brown (Crab), Tamera Mowry-Housley (Seashell) and Cannon, who very stealthily competed as the Bulldog on one episode before returning to host the show following his recovery from COVID-19. Next week, Russian Doll(s), Yeti, Chameleon, Black Swan and Piglet will be back to continue competing for “The Masked Singer” Season 5’s Golden Mask trophy. “The Masked Singer” airs Wednesdays at 8/7c on Fox.

"We are selling the very first seat on New Shepherd, and that flight will take place on July 20th of this year." Blue Origin on Wednesday opened bidding for one single civilian seat aboard its first crew flight into spaceon July 20 that it promised would be a “spectacular” suborbital trip -- marking what would be a landmark moment in the race for private commercial space travel. Billionaire Jeff Bezos’ rocket company said one seat will go to a winning bidder of a five-week sealed online auction, with proceeds donated to the space firm's foundation. But the company’s Director of Astronaut Sales Ariane Cornell was silent about the details of the future ticket prices -- a closely guarded secret inside the company for years. Reuters reported in 2018 that Blue Origin was planning to charge passengers at least $200,000 for the ride. Cornell, however,did offer a glimpse of what that lucky bidder can expect to experience on July 20th if all goes according to plan. "The capsule sits on top of the New Shepard booster. The two lift off together, the booster pushing up the capsule up toward space. We aim for an altitude of 105 kilometers, about 350,000 feet up. That's about 10 times the altitude of what you fly in a commercial airline. Now, as the rocket and the booster, excuse me the booster and the capsule lift off, they accelerate to about MACH3, the astronauts experience about three GS. In fact, it's quite comfortable in those reclining seats that you just saw. And then at about seventy-five kilometers, or about 250,000 feet, the two vehicle separate. And that's when the astronauts start to feel their zero GS. That's when we're going to let them unbuckle, take in the three minutes or so of Zero Gs." …That’s whenBlue Origin saysthey’re expected to experience weightlessness and see the curvature of the planet before the pressurized capsule returns to earth under parachutes. The capsule’s six observation windows are the largest ever used in space. After its first flight in July, Cornell said Blue Origin would have "a couple more" crewed flights before the end of the year. It’s unclear if Mr. Bezos himself will take a flight, unlike Richard Branson, who plans to be aboard rival Virgin Galactic’s first flight later this year… with plans for Branson’s company to fly private customers in early 2022.
