After the announcement as the champion of season 4host Nick cannon awarded LeAnn with the official Masked Singah Golden Mask Trophy. Every winner in there Masked Singer The story has reportedly taken the trophy so far (although the Season 2 winner Wayne Brady did allegedly claim he didn’t receive his trophy last spring).
Aside from that, though, there’s really no other tangible prize. Of course, given that the show’s contestants are all celebrities, it makes sense that no cash prize would be awarded to the winner. Then again, Fans have pointed this out in the past, it would have been nice for Fox to reward the award-winning celebrity with a donation to a charity of their choosing.
But until the network announces otherwise, the true price of The Masked Singer will continue to brag about rights and good publicity.
