The Masked Dancer reveals Oscar De La Hoya as The Zebra leaving fans ‘stunned’ by boxing champ’s ‘unbelievable’ moves
THE Masked Dancer revealed Oscar De La Hoya as The Zebra during Wednesday’s episode of the dance competition show.
Fans took to Twitter to share they were “stunned” by the boxing champ’s “unbelievable” moves.
After The Zebra was eliminated on The Masked Dancer, the contestant was unmasked as he was revealed to be the 48-year-old boxer.
Once his identity was shared, Oscar said: “This is the best experience I’ve ever had. But it was a lot harder than boxing.”
He added that his time on the show was a tribute to his late mother, explaining: “In the clue package, I honored my mother. She passed away right before the Olympic Games and I honored her.”
Oscar previously represented the United States of America during the 1992 Summer Olympics, while he professionally competed as a boxer from 1992-2008.
He won 11 world titled in six weight classes throughout his impressive career.
A number of The Masked Dancer fans took to Twitter to discuss the big reveal, as many admitted they were surprised by how well Oscar can dance.
Alongside a number of applause emojis, one viewer wrote: “OMG #ZebraMask is Oscar De La Hoya!!!!! Unbelievable!!!!!”
Another added: “I’m surprised they were able to afford Oscar de la Hoya. Nice to see him on #TheMaskedDancer.”
A third fan chimed in: “What an honor to see Oscar De La Hoya on the @MaskedDancerFOX.”
An additional fan wrote: “Oscar de la Hoya!! He was a fabulous.”
Before Oscar’s identity was revealed, the show’s judges took turns guessing who the performer under the mask was.
Brian Austin Green correctly guessed he was the professional boxer, while guest judge Will Arnett agreed.
Paula Abdul said she thought it was Mike Tyson, while Ken Jeong guessed he was The Mix.
Ashley Tisdale also guessed he was a professional athlete when she shared she thought he was Connor McGregor.
