One of the most insightful and engaging reality shows out there isn't on TV, it's on Hulu: Behind the Mask chronicles the trials and tribulations of sports mascots -- always outrageous when in full costume, often timid and introverted when unmasked. Watch an exclusive clip from tomorrow's brand-new episode in which Hey Reb! from the University of Las Vegas (Jon "Jersey" Goldman) must determine if he has enough A-game to dance with the school's top-ranked, national championship-winning cheerleading squad.
Hulu's never-before-seen look at the sports world's most unsung heroes follows the lives of four mascots at different levels, both inside and outside the suit: Hey Reb!, Bango the Buck (Kevin Vanderkolk) of the NBA Milwaukee Bucks, Tux the Penguin (Chad Spencer) of the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins minor league hockey team and Rooty the Cedar Tree (Michael Hostetter) from Lebanon High School in Pennsylvania.
Behind the Mask airs on Hulu and Hulu Plus, with new episodes launching each week through December 17. Watch the show's trailer HERE:
