Cupcake revealed to the panelists during a post-performance speed dating quiz that she considered herself the Black Elizabeth Taylor because she has been married multiple times. 

Nicole, 43, told her she loved her performance. When Nicole asked her if she would give her past self some advice Cupcake said, 'Date don't marry.'

Before Cupcake's unmasking show host Nick Cannon, 40, wearing a sequined top and a black fedora, gave the panelist one final chance to guess her identity. 

Ken, 52, said something in his gut was telling him that she was Tina Turner.  Robin said he thought she was comedian Leslie Jones. Jenny McCarthy, 48, guessed she was Grace Jones.

Only Nicole guessed correctly after switching from her First Impression guess of Roberta Flack. 

Ruth after her unmasking revealed that initially there were going to be two Cupcakes on the show, but her sister Anita, 73, couldn't compete because of health issues, so she decided to compete alone.

Nick then asked Ruth to address her ailing sister.
