Who is Beet?

In their first hint packet, Beetroot said, “Hey sugar, I’m beetroot.

“I’m just a fun girl from the northern town.

“Growing up away from the plant worlds of fame inspired me to discover who I am today.

“Look around, I’m very happy with my plot, it impresses me a lot. I’m a glass half full of a girl, I enjoy the little things.

“It’s early closing time here in the country, no more clues for you. I’ll let you decide if this is all just hearsay or not.”

In their second VT, Beetroot appeared to speak in an American accent and said, “I love your accents, hello boys and girls, do you want a cup of tea?

“I like the traditions of history, Henry VIII, the queen.

“Even though I party in the USA, there’s English in these purple roots you know

“I’m known for driving an iconic British car from the 60s.”

When was Beetroot exposed?

Beetroot was unmasked in episode three – and it was Dita Von Teese!

In an interview after the reveal, Dita said, “I thought it would be fun to do something unexpected and unlike me… I’ve never done anything like this, and I’m not a competitive person, but I knew that would be hilarious. I also knew that people wouldn’t expect me to be under the mask.

She added: “I was also nervous about taking on The Masked Dancer because my dance experience is limited to ballet and 30s and 40s social dances, and, of course, striptease. I didn’t expect to go far in the competition but I knew it would be hard for them to guess me and I knew I would be unique.”

Who are the other Masked Dancer competitors?
