He joked to Entertainment Weekly: “I don't accept Squiggly being rejected. I want the Zoom audience of ‘Masked Singer’ to revote because this is unfair. It's a fraud.

“Actually, I wish our democratic system had been as amazing as the dignity that ‘Masked Singer’ has, how strong and careful they are about everything…
“I still wanted to come back. I was kind of surprised that I got booted, but then you immediately make an adjustment about it. I was thinking that maybe there was a Zoom malfunction with the voting on it.
“Maybe the mail-in votes were not tabulated correctly.(sic)”
The 64-year-old star’s ‘Full House’ co-star Candace Cameron Bure had instantly recognised him behind the costume because of his dance moves – but he dismissed her excited message/
He said: “There's one I have a video of, and it's [his Full House costar] Candace Cameron Bure, and she goes, ‘Oh my God. That's you on ‘The Masked Singer’, isn't it?’
“That was last week, and this is a video she sent me of her screaming, ‘That's you! I know you! I know how you dance. I know how you sing. That's you! Oh my god, I can't believe you're on ‘The Masked Singer’. Oh my God!’
“And I wrote back, ‘No, and I don't know what you're talking about, Candace. Love you.’ ”
