After The Crab was announced as the first contestant to be eliminated, their identity was soon revealed as Bobby Brown.
After he was unmasked, the 52-year-old told the judges: “As everybody knows, I lost my two children. I lost my daughter, Bobbi Kristina, and I lost my son just recently, Bobby Jr.
“They were a part of everything that I do this for. I do this for my kids and I just felt it was essential that I come out here and do it for my little ones. My five-year-old, my four-year-old, my 11-year-old.”
He concluded: “To let them see their dad is still kicking.”

Meanwhile, the singer’s daughter Bobbi Kristina- who he shared with Whitney Houston- sadly passed away at the age of 22 in 2015 when she was found unresponsive in a bath.
A number of viewers took to Twitter to slam the judges for eliminating Bobby, as one fan wrote: “Damn, Bobby Brown was my initial guess for #CrabMask but I wasn’t ready to lock it in yet… or see him go home so soon. Great job, Bobby!”
A following fan wrote: “bobby brown shouldn’t have gone home tonight.”
A third person chimed in: “I told ya’ll it was Bobby Brown. Why ya’ll send Bobby home? I can’t.”

An additional viewer wrote: “Knew it was the great Bobby Brown & that he would be unmasked tonight. Prayers for #BobbyBrown He has had so much tragedy in his life.”
Before the The Crab’s identity was revealed, the judges each took a turn guessing who the person behind the past was.
Meanwhile, Nicole Scherzinger, 42, guessed he was Keith Sweat and guest panelist Rita Wilson, 64, wondered if they were Martin Lawrence.

Following the big reveal that Bobby was The Crab, a second elimination took place and Tamera Mowry was unmasked as The Seashell.
After Nicole guessed the 42-year-old’s identity correctly, Tamera told the judges: “To have made it this far means a lot because I have heard those voice back there and I was like, ‘What the hell?'”
The actress concluded: “I had so much fun.”

Earlier in the episode, the Yeti brought tears to the judges’ eyes following his emotional performance of Justin Bieber’s Lonely.
Following the conclusion of the Yeti’s performance, Nicole wiped tears away from her eyes as she said: “Oh man, Yeti. You come out here looking like that, your supposed to make us laugh… but your just pulling on all my heartstrings.
“That song was so personal, and was such a vulnerable performance… You’ve made Masked Singer season 5 so special.”

The double elimination episode comes after Sugar Ray’s Mark McGrath was unmasked as The Orca during last week’s episode.
Following his emotional performance of Every Rose Has Its Thorn by Poison, The Orca said he dedicated the number to his late father and admitted he was “crying” behind his mask.
Despite receiving positive notes from the judges, host Nick Cannon eventually revealed that he was the next contestant to be leaving the competition.
One week earlier, Nick was revealed as The Bulldog after guest host Niecy Nash chose the episode’s elimination victim in the show’s “craziest twist ever.”
