Season 2 of The Masked Singer debuts four new disguised celebrities on tonight’s episode, which airs at 8 p.m. ET/PT and 7 p.m. CT, on the Fox network. Two of the four are the Eagle and the Fox. Get to know more about these characters with their clues so far and some of the guesses that have come out prior to their performances. Also, beware of spoilers.
Eagle on “The Masked Singer”
When it comes to Eagle, he had a hand in creating his rocker costume, so, perhaps he is a rocker. He also said that the other contestants on the show will be “saluting” him at the end of the competition. In addition, he said that wearing a mask allows him to live out his wildest dreams. According to TV Line, the Eagle stated on the sneak preview, “If you know an eagle’s body temperature, you may be hot on my tail.” And, TV Line reported 106 degrees is the temperature. What could that mean?
Entertainment Tonight has reported that the most popular online guesses from viewers are Bruce Springsteen and Adam Levine. But, we don’t think Adam Levine would quit The Voice just to be on The Masked Singer, especially with his singing voice being so recognizable. Could Eagle possibly be someone like Willie Nelson?
UPDATE: The Eagle was revealed to be Dr. Drew Pinsky.
Fox on “The Masked Singer”
When the Fox costume was revealed on the season 2 sneak peek, he said that this “superhero” is ready to devour the competition. TV Line reported that the Fox was hanging out by signs that were pointing to Studio 46. According to Billboard, the Fox described himself as “clever, strategic, and they’ll eat almost anything”.
In addition to the above clues, some guesses have already started to come out, even though Fox has yet to perform. Some of the guesses have been Jamie Foxx, Jeremy Renner, and Josh Brolin, according to ET Online.
