BEWARE OF SPOILERS FOR EPISODE 3 BELOW.
‘The Masked Singer’ Snow Owls Clues So Far
Before the season 4 premiere, the Snow Owls offered this first clue to fans: “You can try and figure out who we are, but as for who is more talented, it’s a tie.”
During the Snow Owls’ first animated clue package of the season, several important visual clues stood out, including a castle, a pearl inside an oyster, a birdhouse covered in snow, Christmas lights, and a rose. Three signs labeled “Jam-A-Lot,” “Magnolia,” and “Quarrel Canyon” were also featured.
The male Snow Owl teased to host Nick Cannon that he loves wings.
FOX teases that “The Season Four celebrity contestants combined have sold more than 281 million records worldwide, appeared in more than 5,120 episodes of television and 204 films, appeared in five Super Bowls, have four stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and one of Time magazine’s 100 Most Influential People.” Which accomplishments belong to the celebrities behind the Snow Owls masks?
For their episode 3 clue package, they said that “Luckily, we’ve always had each other’s backs.” The male Snow Owl said when he was going through a bad breakup, his pair was there to help him, making it seem like they are best friends or siblings. The female Snow Owl said her partner has always had her back, and after being offered an “Opportunity fit for a queen that I was too scared to do,” he encouraged her to give it a try and it changed her life.
The visual clues that stood out included a pink light-up letter D, an anchor with the word “Management” on it, a knight, a bouncy house, and a rope net.
The Snow Owls’ drone clue was a witch’s hat. They teased to the judges, “We will tip our hats to WITCH-ever one of you figures out the clue.”
The viewers watching asked the Snow Owls if Ken Jeong has ever guessed them on the show. The female Snow Owl said, “I’m definitely not Bjork and I’m not Honey Boo Boo.” The male Snow Owl added, “I’m not Fabio, I’m not JAG. I’ve never been on JAG. I mean… JAG?!”
Top Guesses for the Snow Owls on ‘The Masked Singer’
On premiere night, the judges guessed the duo could be Marie and Donnie Osmond (Donnie competed on the show previously, as the Peacock), Amy Grant and Vince Gill, Eugene Levy and Catherine O’Hara, or Derek and Julianne Hough.
After their first performance, our leading guess for the Snow Owls’ identities was country music star Clint Black and his wife Lisa Hartman Black.
The Snow Owls performed “Like I’m Gonna Lose You” by Meghan Trainor; while their clues suggested they are siblings or friends, the choice to perform a love song had the judges thinking they might be a real-life couple. After their moving performance, Ken Jeong guessed Will Farrell and Rachel McAdams, guest judge Joel McHale guessed Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood, and Jenny McCarthy guessed Keith Urban and Nicole Kidman.
New episodes of The Masked Singer season 4 air on Wednesday nights at 8/7c on FOX.
