One of the clues for the penguin is a sign that reads, “Not your secretary.” It was this clue that led Nicole Scherzinger to think it might be Megan Mullally, who played a secretary on Will & Grace.

It was the clues signaling the “end of a career” that suggested, to Jenny McCarthy, that the person under the mask could be Kathy Griffin.

Still, some fans are convinced the person under the mask is Tamar Braxton. After all, the penguin has said she is going to “bring the heat”, and The Heat was the name of Braxton’s studio album.

The penguin shares that her whole life, she has been told she isn’t pretty, smart, or funny enough. She also says she has to “strive for her voice to be heard.”

She has declared, as well, that “Every time you think you’re getting warmer, I promise you’re getting colder.”

The penguin’s many wigs suggest that she likes to change up her look often.


4.  Most People Think It’s Sherri Shepherd

Most people believe the celebrity behind the mask is Sherri Shepherd, and the clues seem to align with that guess.

At one point in the clues video, the penguin says she “doesn’t need permission”. Well, Shepherd’s book is titled, “Permission Slips: Every Woman’s Guide to Giving Herself a Break.” 

As for the secretary references, Shepherd actually started her career as a legal secretary while performing in night clubs on the side as a standup comedian. Another huge clue is the picture of Queen Rania on the penguin’s vanity. Perhaps unsurprisingly, Sherri Shepherd’s 30 Rock character had a fake show called Queen of Jordan.

One thing we know about whoever is under the mask is that she has to have pretty good eyesight, considering the fact that the penguin mask is the most difficult to see out of.

Nick Cannon shares, “A team of over a dozen fabricators handcrafted the penguin head, which is made out of chrome silver.” It’s the size and design of the large beak that actually gets in the way of the singer’s eyesight.

Who could the penguin be? When will she be revealed? Tune in to The Masked Singer Wednesdays on Fox at 8pm ET/PT to find out.
