Olympic gold medalist Gabby Douglas is the first winner of “The Masked Dancer,” who subsequently won the show’s diamond mask trophy as cotton candy unveiled

Douglas was victorious even though he faced two trained dancers in the final. Runner-up Sloth turned out to be “Dancing with the Stars” Maksim Chmerkovskiy, and in third place was Tulip, who turned out to be Mackenzie Ziegler (“Dance Moms”)

Douglas was exposed after dancing to “This Is Me” by Kesha Panellists were torn whether the cotton candy was a gymnast or an ice skater Paula Abdul found out it was Gabby Douglas, while Ashley Tisdale her teammate Simone Biles named Brian Austin Green thought it was Tara Lapinski, Ken Jeong named Michelle Kwan

One of Douglas’ notable moments on the show was her first dance when she was floating high (disguised as cotton candy) in an acrobatic ring, but then fell to the ground. “The Masked Dancer” earned tons of miles when he played this clip played and noted Cotton Candy quickly recovering and performing

Now Douglas can reveal that, ironically, while dancing in disguise wasn’t easy, it may have been this elaborate, padded costume that protected her

“The ring was spinning very quickly, which I had done so many times before, but I really wanted to make it all very light and airy,” she told Variety. “I was kind of not paying attention and part of my left shoulder is off came out of the ring, and then gravity literally just got me down. But I was so lucky for the Cotton Candy costume because it padded fall and I had a big old skirt on and her [big] head so I just went gone with an injured chin and an injured knee but I was fine I just got up again and thought, “All right, guys, let’s do it all over again”

Douglas may be an athletic superstar, but she admitted that her dance skills were only “at 5% Because I’m so used to doing static poses and not really being in character, moving, doing different genres or dancing so it was very, very different ”

Panellists eventually discovered that Cotton Candy was either a gymnast or an ice skater, which made Douglas more eager to cover her tracks. “I didn’t want to do it very gymnastic at all, so I practiced with choreographers and said,” OK, how am I a ballerina or how am I a hip hop dancer to throw off the judges’ ”

She was amused by some of the early guesses, especially Jeong: “I found Ken super funny, some of his guesses are very wild Kylie Jenner, Ariana Grande, Selena Gomez, what was Wow, he’s only doing this to be funny be, or is he really serious? “

Douglas gives her experience high marks “If I could rewind and do it all over again, I would,” she said. “It’s definitely my passion to dance more.”

Second place Sloth was guessed correctly by Abdul and Green, who had chosen Chmerkovskiy. Jeong called Channing Tatum while Tisdale thought it was Hugh Jackman

For third place, Tulip Tisdale noted that it was Ziegler Abdul went with Liza Koshy, Jeong chose Lucy Hale, Green named Sabrina Carpenter

“I think one of the most difficult things for me was obviously having my head,” said Ziegler. “Because it was definitely a lot bigger than my actual head, and it was hard because I was doing tricks, my partner lifting me up high and it was hard for rehearsals to navigate around the head because it was just so big ”

Ziegler said many of her fans found out early on that it was her: “I’m just so excited that everyone is seeing me because many of my supporters have already guessed me. All my comments are:” Are you the tulip? ” I am curious to see how everyone reacts when they understand me correctly ”

Abdul and Green got into the final with two correct guesses, while Jeong and Tisdale had one. At the end of the night, Abdul won the season with four correct guesses, while Green ended with three, Tisdale with two and Jeong with his one
