(Warning: This post contains spoilers for Wednesday’s “The Masked Singer.”)
“The Masked Singer” moved on from its first crop of Season 3 contestants with its Wednesday episode, which introduced viewers to six more of the third season’s 18 competitors: Banana, Elephant, Kitty, Taco, Mouse and Frog.
Those masked singers are part of Group B, a lineup that will compete over the next two weeks until it’s been whittled down to three contestants — just as Group A was condensed to White Tiger, Turtle and Kangaroo over Season 3’s first three episodes — who will then move on to the finals. And the same will then happen with Group C.
Well, we already know at least one contestant who won’t be moving on: Elephant, who was the first Group B contestant eliminated and revealed to be skateboard legend Tony Hawk on last night’s episode. (You can read TheWrap’s interview with Hawk about his time as Elephant here.)
But what are the identities of the five remaining masked celebrities duking it out on the second round of the singing competition’s third season? See below for fans’ best guesses, which were sparked by clue packages (you can view those here), the contestants’ initial performances, and the names thrown out by panelists Jenny McCarthy, Nicole Scherzinger, Ken Jeong and Robin Thicke.
We’ve also included each of their performances to try and help you figure things out for yourself.
Between the judges on-screen guesses and the fans’ votes on Twitter, the leading theories for who is under the Banana mask are Bill Engvall, Ed Helms and Darius Rucker.
The guesses for Kitty’s identity were Julianne Hough, Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie.
The top picks for Taco were Regis Philbin, Martin Short and Bob Saget.
The judges think Mouse is either Darlene Love, Dionne Warwick or Maya Rudolph.
The names thrown out for Frog were Michael Johnson, Carl Lewis and Ray J.
“The Masked Singer” airs Wednesdays at 8/7c on Fox.
