“The Masked Singer”: Tiff’s Takes

This season feels tougher than the last. I’m surprised by some of these reveals and am stumped by many clues. My spot-on hunches are more seldom. I guessed Raven-Symone from the start, but missed the mark on Sherri Shepherd.

For a fun show, it can be frustrating at times. I never expected to take this guessing game so seriously. With that said, here are my hunches:

● Patti LaBelle is still my first choice as Flower Mask. Even the judges think it’s her. Which doesn’t always say much lol

● Wayne Brady fits the bill for Fox Mask. He’s a skilled entertainer – dancing, singing, impressions…Plus, it totally sounds like his voice.

● All of Butterfly’s clues and that soulful voice point to Michelle Williams from Destiny’s Child.

● I’m beginning to join the Seal bandwagon for Leopard Mask. After a little Googling, I discovered that he was part of a funk band. I had no idea! There’s more to Seal than I realized, so perhaps he can be that theatrical.

● It would be hilarious if Nelly is under the Rottweiler Mask. I mean, they do have the same style.

● As for Flamingo, Ladybug, Thingamajig, and Tree…I’m stumped and need more clues before a do a little digging.

What are your guesses? I could use some guidance. Look forward to hearing your thoughts! Hope you’re ready for the next episode. It’s sure to have extra bite…
