The Masked Singer's Season 7 premiere kicked off on Wednesday and one singer, McTerrier, already got the boot. But, the singer's reveal left viewers with more questions for one particular reason. Ahead of the premiere, it was reported that Robin Thicke and Ken Jeong stormed off the stage after Rudy Giuliani was revealed while filming the premiere. When that moment didn't happen, fans took to Twitter to share their thoughts on the interesting situation.
Deadline reported that Giuliani, the former New York City mayor who worked closely with President Donald Trump to overturn the results of the 2020 presidential election, was unmasked while filming the premiere episode. His costume was not revealed. The outlet reported that Jeong and Thicke left the stage in protest after Giuliani removed his mask while Jenny McCarthy and Nicole Scherzinger "bantered" with the lawyer. TMZ also confirmed that he was the first celebrity to be unmasked during the season.
As a result, fans were expecting to see Giuliani be unmasked during Wednesday's premiere. Since that did not happen, and McTerrier was revealed to have been celebrity chef Duff Goldman, viewers flocked to Twitter to question what was really going on.

Fans were eagerly waiting to see the undoubtedly dramatic moment take place. It's unclear why the show did not feature Giuliani's reported reveal.prevnext
There were reports that Rudy Giulani or however you spell it would be the first unmasked this season of #TheMaskedSinger which means one of two things. Either a) there was enough outrage that they scrapped the episode or b) he's going to be the first unmasked in a different group— Elizabeth 🧣 (@AwkwardPancake) March 10, 2022
Masked Singer fans have been left to speculate whether Giuliani will make an appearance, at all. As this user noted, it's possible that he'll be revealed during a later episode.prevnext

Season 7 is already shaping up to be the most dramatic season of The Masked Singer yet. In addition to the Giuliani drama, the premiere also featured a medical emergency from Firefly and a major slip-up from McTerrier.prevnext
I dont think they are gonna put Rudy in night 1 knowing so many are tuning in to see that mess, i still dont know who Cyclops is but just my thought there. Could be wrong 🤷♀️ #TheMaskedSinger— Amanda A 😘✌ (@AmandaRPI) March 10, 2022
While it was originally reported that Giuliani would be unmasked in the premiere, that didn't turn out to be the case. But, as this viewer noted, his reveal could have been pushed to a later episode.prevnext
I would love to believe they edited out Rudy but each team has 5 masks. Hard to believe one originally had six #TheMaskedSinger— Brian NG (@brianng416) March 10, 2022
Due to the fact that he wasn't in the premiere, many believe that Giuliani could have been edited out of the show altogether. Fans will simply have to stay tuned to the rest of the season to see whether their theories are correct.prev
