The Masked Singer season 3 episode two aired on Wednesday, February 5. For the second time this season, the Kangaroo took the stage for another performance against her fellow contestants, but not before the show revealed some more clues about the celebrity hiding behind the mask.
Here’s what we have learned about the Kangaroo and the best guesses about their identity so far:
‘The Masked Singer’ Kangaroo Clues
The Kangaroo referred to herself as a “survivor” several times during her premiere video clue package. She recently went through hardship when she lost a person who was very close to her (likely a family member).
The judges have noted that she is tall (but keep in mind that this could be a trick the costume designers have played to throw off guesses).
The premiere clue package featured a number of visual clues, including a sign pointing in the direction of the “Outback,” a Gramaphone, jump rope, boxing gloves, and a punching bag.
During episode 2, the Kangaroo said that she’s “a bit clumsy” and has a hard time navigating her costume because of its big ears.
The Kangaroo used her clue package to open up more about her life and recent struggles. She said “Recently, it seems like I’ve been watching my life from the sidelines.” She then said that “sometimes it feels like everyone is against me.”
Nevertheless, she said she’s ready to “get back in the game,” adding “I gotta be a role model for my little roo.” This implies that the celebrity behind the mask is a mom and has at least one young child.
The main visual clues that stuck out during her episode 2 clue package were the number 23, basketball, and makeup.
When Nick Cannon asked what she was voted “Most Likely” for at the Masked Academy, she said “I was voted most likely to appear on a list with Seal and Mike Tyson, and I might have been.”
Her excellent singing voice suggests she is a professional singer, but the clues hinted that she might actually be an athlete.
The Kangaroo on ‘The Masked Singer’ Top Guesses
During the season 3 premiere, Jenny McCarthy guessed that maybe the Kangaroo is Jordyn Sparks, while Nicole Scherzinger guessed Kelly Rowland. Robin Thicke guessed Iggy Azalea, who is from Australia, the home of the kangaroo.
Robin Thicke guessed WNBA star Candace Parker, while Jason Bigg said he thought it might be Tatiana Ali. Ken Jeong guessed that the Kangaroo is Gabrielle Union.
The Kangaroo delivered an outstanding performance of “You Know I’m No Good” by Amy Whinehouse. The judges agreed that she’s a frontrunner, so don’t expect her to be unmasked any time soon, and keep your guesses coming.
At the end of the episode, [SPOILER ALERT] the Llama was unmasked revealing Drew Carey, keeping the Kangaroo’s identity a mystery for at least another episode. The Kangaroo will perform again in episode 3 on February 10, so stayed tuned for more clues and guesses next week.
