“The Masked Dancer” revealed the identity of another dancer on Wednesday night and showed none other than the surviving activist Elizabeth Smart.
“The Masked Dancer” – a spin-off of “The Masked Singer” – is a reality show where celebrities and stars in costumes compete in a dance competition.
Wednesday night, the show hosted the Group B playoffs. Smart was revealed to be the mill after she failed to defeat her opponents in the dance round.
Why it matters
Most of the celebrities revealed on “The Masked Singer” or “The Masked Dancer” have been singers, athletes, YouTube stars and actors. Meanwhile, Smart has become an activist for drug survivors after she was abducted from her bedroom in 2002.
Why did she do that?
Smart told host Craig Robinson that she attended the show to have fun.
- “My grandmother actually died recently, but she was so funny. She never let a moment pass by her. And so when this opportunity came, I thought, ‘I live a pretty serious life, and I want to take this opportunity and just have fun,’ ”said Smart.
- “It was probably the scariest thing I’ve ever done voluntarily,” Smart said. “But it was a lot of fun. I mean, how often does one get a person to say that they have a whole team of people training with them every single day, like five people working there to make you the best you can be. ”
Judge Brian Austin Green, who was the only one to correctly judge Moth’s identity, praised Smart for her courage.
- “Can I just say that for what you have been dealing with in your life, you have been an inspiration to so many people and you have done so much good with a really difficult situation and we need more people like you on the plane. Thank you.”
