Fox’s breakout hit The Masked Singer, isn’t your average singing competition. The series features celebrities disguised in over-the-top costumes belting out tunes while a panel of judges, and viewers at home, try to guess their identity.
When the show premiered on Jan. 2, 2019, it drew over 17 million viewers becoming one of the biggest unscripted hits for the network since 2008. It has continued to be so successful that it’s already been renewed for a Season 2.
“The response to The Masked Singer has been fantastic and we are thrilled to bring it back for another season,” said Rob Wade, President, Alternative Entertainment and Specials, Fox Broadcasting Company. “We look forward to Season Two being even more fun, weird and wonderful than the first.”
All of the current judges Robin Thicke, Ken Jeong, Jenny McCarthy, and Nicole Scherzinger will return for the second season to keeping on guessing who’s behind the mask. So we’d thought we’d play a little guessing game of our own about these judges and how much they’re worth. Can you guess which judge has the highest net worth?
Former Pussycat Doll singer Nicole Scherzinger has had a lot of previous experience on reality competitions.
Prior to The Masked Singer, Scherzinger served as a judge on The Sing-Off as well as the U.S. and U.K. versions of The X Factor. She also competed on and won Season 10 of Dancing With the Stars.

Ken Jeong has been acting in films and television for several years and is best known for playing Ben Chang on the show Community and the character Leslie Chow in all three of The Hangover movies. Jeong also had his own sitcom titled Dr. Ken from 2015 to 2017.
In case you’re not aware he is a licensed physician, however, he gave up practicing medicine to focus on his acting career.
His net worth of $14 million though isn’t the highest either.
Jenny McCarthy has been in the entertainment business since the early ’90s. The activist, actress, model, and author began her career as co-host of the MTV game show Singled Out. She also previously served as a co-host on The View.
In 2014, she became the host of her own
Like Jeong, McCarthy also has a net worth of about $14 million but that’s still a little short of the highest.
Robin Thicke actually has the highest net worth of The Masked Singer judges with an estimated $15 million.
In addition to his singing career, the “Blurred Lines” artist has also done some acting. He is the son of the late Alan Thicke and appeared on episodes of his dad’s sitcom Growing Pains as well as Just the Ten of Us, and The Wonder Years.
Thicke married actress Paula Patton, who he had dated since they were teenagers, in 2005. However, they went through a nasty public split and their divorce was finalized in 2015. Today, Thicke is engaged to April Love Geary.
