Frog on ‘The Masked Singer’ Top Clues
Some of the major episode 4 clues for the Frog were a spilled paper bag of “leftovers,” lightning, a poster for the “1996 games,” 106 dollars, and a black and white newspaper said that the “tadpole” came from a “small pond.” The Frog teased “Newsflash: my metamorphosis has been anything but typical.”
After his performance of “U Can’t Touch This” by MC Hammer, the Frog told host Nick Cannon that behind the mask “I feel free, baby. I came here to win it all, baby. That’s what I came to do. Win it all.”
During his episode 5 clue package, the Frog said “Last week, I felt like I got a new lease on life but it makes me wonder why haven’t I felt this before?”
The video was full of visual clues, including the letters CSI on a typewriter, a basketball, toy army men, and the phrase “Not every frog wants to be a Prince” typed out onto a sheet of paper.
The Frog delivered a unique rendition of “In Da Club” by 50 Cent. After his performance, he told Nick Cannon that in school, “My favorite subject was actually P.E.” He said he loved that it kept him in shape “so I can bust these dance movies that make the ladies go crazy.” While the Frog may not be a professional athlete, it’s clear that fitness is an important part of his lifestyle.
‘The Masked Singer’ Frog Top Guesses
During episode 4, the judges guessed that the Frog could be Michael Johnson, Carl Lewis, or Ray J.
On Twitter, the most popular guess from fans of the show is that the Frog is American rapped Bow Wow. Some clues that support their theory are the $106 (for “106 and Park”) and the 1996 Olympics (which were held in Atlanta). Another guess, because of the Olympics references, was Usain Bolt.
After the Frog sang “In Da Club,” Jenny McCarthy guessed Alfonso Ribiero and guest judge Gabriel Iglesias. Ken Jeong guessed Kevin Hart and Robin Thicke guessed Omarion.
On Twitter, The Masked Singer asked viewers “Which celeb gave that ribbiting performance as #FrogMask?” The majority seemed to be in agreement that they think the Frog is Bow Wow. One user said the basketball clue was a reference to Bow Wow’s role in Like Mike. Bow Wow also had a role on CSI: Cyber.
SPOILER ALERT: At the end of the episode, the Mouse was unmasked, which means the Frog performs and offers new clues in episode 6 with the other remaining “Group B” contestants. Keep guessing, and check back next week for more clues and guesses!
