The judges actually guessed Jake was the Unicorn. He said after the show: "It was hard at first, because friends could tell I was excited about something but I couldn’t tell them which made them crazy, so I just had to learn to pretend like there was absolutely nothing going on!"

Denise didn't even tell her family what she was up to including boyfriend Eddie her kids.

- CeeLo Green (Monster)

CeeLo just missed out on a place in the final. He said he didn’t find it hard to keep the show a secret, adding: "I have a small group of people I live and work with.
