The teaser also gives a sneak peek at snail, pig, black swan, seashell and porcupine costumes that haven't been announced yet. Chameleon, Grandpa Monster and Phoenix have officially joined the season 5 lineup with Russian Doll so far.

The upcoming installment will switch up the show's format by adding wildcard contestants who will crash the show and battle it out for a chance to join the competition. The 10 original celebrities will be split up into Group A and Group B, with wildcard performers jumping in and taking the stage at the end of the episode for the opportunity to unseat another contestant in the group and join the race for the Golden Mask trophy.
