The Professor was the third contestant to be unmasked on Sunday night’s episode of The Masked Singer.
After a sea of chants to ‘take it off’, the mystery celebrity was revealed to be iconic Australian singer Ben Lee.

‘How did nobody guess Ben? We were not even close!’ Dannii Minogue said after learning the news.
Earlier in the episode, Dannii had guessed Jimmy Rees, Dave Hughes went with Simon Baker, Jackie ‘O’ Henderson had guessed Zac from Hanson while Urzila Carlson thought it was Brandon Flowers from The Killers.
But they all gasped upon hearing it was the Noise Addict star, who later said he was elated not to have been voted out first in the competition.
When asked by host Osher Günsberg why he had decided to do the show, Ben replied: ‘I like to do anything that makes me feel weird. When I heard about this I thought – this is so weird, I’m into it.’
