Group B consists of Sloth, Ice Cube, Zebra, Cotton Candy, and Moth. The Sloth kicks things off with his clues. He’s “worked hard” to get where he is and suffered a “bad accident” when he was a kid. The Sloth notes that he was “made fun of” as a kid and thought of as just a “Mickey Mouse operation.”

One notable hint is that his toothpaste reads: “GLEE.” He dances to “What I Like About You” by The Romantics. His one-word clue is Broadway. The guesses: Matthew Morrison, Kevin Federline, and Jason Derulo.

His one-word clue: 90s icon. The guesses: Bill Nye, Bill Maher, and Anderson Cooper.

Cotton Candy reveals right away that she’s a “perfectionist.” When she was growing up, she was a “whiz kid” and had to “move in with a new family” at one point. One major aspect of her clue package is a plate of cupcakes with big lips on them. During rehearsal, Cotton Candy actually FALLS from her aerial circle. She recovers and dances to “Glitter in the Air” by Pink. Her one-word clue: primetime. The guesses: Pink, Julianne Hough, and Jenna Dewan.

The final performance of the night is Moth. She was initially “out of the view of the public,” but the next thing she knew she was “making headlines with the president.” Moth reveals she suffered a “traumatic experience” that changed her life forever. She dances to “Boot Scootin’ Boogie” by Brooks & Dunn. Her one-word clue: inspired. The guesses: Megyn Kelly, Monica Lewinsky, and Marla Maples.

The masked dancer going home this week is the Ice Cube. The final guesses are Al Gore, Bill Nye, Bill Maher, and Tim Gunn. Ice Cube is… BILL NYE THE SCIENCE GUY!
