Bold And The Beautiful (B&B) alumni Wayne Brady has been crowned the winner of the reality show competition The Masked Singer.
The ultra-talented Brady, who played Dr. Reese Buckingham on B&B in late 2018 and early 2019, had spent the entire season impressing judges Jenny McCarthy, Ken Jeong, Nicole Scherzinger and Robin Thicke dressed as the Fox. But it was his performance of Otis Redding’s song Try A Little Tenderness in the finale that sent him over the top and made him the second season champion.
“The thing in people’s minds is, that’s Wayne Brady. That’s the funny guy that makes me laugh,” Brady, told PEOPLE. “That’s cool, but they don’t think about the reason I made you laugh in all of those shows — it was musical. At the same time, I was doing that, I was making records. I’ve put in a lot of work as a vocalist. I had to take the message to a bigger venue and use that as my church. That was the reason really for doing The Masked Singer.”
Bold And The Beautiful News – Fans Speculated The Fox Was Brady Or Jamie Foxx
Some fans had already speculated Brady was the fox, although others thought the character would turn out to be actor and singer Jamie Foxx. He faced fierce competition in the finale, going up against Chris Daughtry (Rottweiler) and Adrienne Bailon (Flamingo).

Brady also told PEOPLE he watched the Masked Singer finale in his Atlanta hotel room and it “wasn’t exactly the victory party I’d imagined, but it’s kind of the dopest way of winning that I could imagine.” He’s currently in the city shooting the film Black Lightning.
I’m here shooting an amazing superhero drama; like the clues said during my Masked Singer packages. I’ve always loved superheroes. I love the Clark Kent persona I feel I have, which was one of the clues because I’m very shy and quiet in real life and very much about business and I like to blend into the background,” Brady said.

“Then on stage, I like to kick open the doors and that’s my superpower. I get to actually play someone with superpowers while watching myself in a costume. It’s pretty much the dream that I had when I was 8 years old in Orlando. So life is great.”
Brady has been busy over the years, starring in Whose Line Is It Anyway and The Wayne Brady Show and of course his guest stint on the B&B. He’s also the popular host of the daytime game show reboot of Let’s Make A Deal.
