Last night (April 5), Twisted Sister’s Dee Snider was officially unveiled as the Doll on “The Masked Singer.” The frontman came in third place on the show and no one was able to figure out his identity.
Snider told Entertainment Weekly the following about taking part in the show:
“Well, actually, to tell a secret, I was asked season one to be on the show. And I said, ‘No, this show will never work.’ [Laughs] Nine seasons later, they said, ‘Will you be on it now?’ ‘Yes, I’ll be on it now.’ I did the same thing with ‘Sharknado’ by the way. They asked me to be in ‘Sharknado 1’, I go, ‘Oh, this will never work.’ And then ‘Sharknado 6’ there I was in Romania dressed as a sheriff. And apologizing to the director. ‘You were right. You were right.’ So you gotta imagine I said no and all of a sudden this show it’s just like, blowing up. Well, that was really a bad call. So I was glad to get asked to have another chance.”
He also added the following about having to perform in the Doll costume:
“I had to pull back my natural performing tendency. People say, ‘Wow, you were really moving on stage.’ But what I would do normally and what I wanted to do was so much more, but with my limited range of vision, and wearing these high heels, there was a lot of obstacles, many edges of the stage to fall off of. There was gaps, there was wires, all kinds of things like that. So if I communicate anything to your readers, I’d say, appreciate that this is a very difficult thing for every single member of the cast who comes on that show. And we’re out of our comfort zone. It’s almost like a sensory deprivation situation when they put that headpiece on you. It is like, whoa, where am I? What am I doing? Where am I going? I can’t see anything. You know, so it’s tough.”
