The Broccoli character took The Masked Singer stage for a second time this season to perform on November 4. The episode also featured a number of new clues and guesses hinting toward the Broccoli’s celebrity identity.
Read on for what we know about the Broccoli so far, and who we think might be singing behind the mask:
‘The Masked Singer’ Broccoli Clues
Before the Broccoli’s debut performance last week, their video clue package offered some note-worthy hints about who they are. Those clues included: a carwash, a swing, peppers, iceberg lettuce, a baby, and the White House.
The Broccoli said he’s gotten to work with “the biggest artists” throughout his career. While this made us think of recording artists, it’s very possible that the star is an actor who has appeared on a number of shows and in film with other A-listers. FOX has teased that the contestants this season “appeared in more than 5,120 episodes of television and 204 films.” If Broccoli is an actor, might he also be one of the contestants with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame?
The Broccoli has teased, “I’m a broco-lean, mean, heart-pumping machine. After all, it’s how I got my six-pack.”
The Broccoli’s second clue package was full of mobster movie references, including “Copabanana,” Good Fellas, and a mustached leader who he called “The Big Cheese.” He also talked about how he’s already lost weight as a competitor on The Masked Singer, yet another reference to his figure.
He said, “As far back as I can remember, I’ve always wanted to be a Broccoli.” Some other clues that stood out were 6 AM, an oven, a phone booth, the number 37265, a limousine, a pizza topped with Canadian bacon, and carrots.
The Broccoli’s “magic lamp” clue was a roulette wheel. He teased, “Take this clue for a spin, and you may land on my identity if you’re lucky.” Nick Cannon pointed out that it landed on black 26. The judges wondered if the clue tied the celebrity to Las Vegas, or if it might be a co-star of Ken Jeong’s from the movie The Hangover.
Broccoli on ‘The Masked Singer’ Guesses
After the Broccoli sang “House Is Rockin'” by Stevie Ray Vaughn for their debut performance, the judges guessed that it might be Bill Murray, Howie Mandel, or Steve Guttenberg.
The Broccoli sang “Hello” by Lionel Richie for his second performance, and the number once again showed off his mature, seasoned vocals.
Ken Jeong guessed Martin Short because of his Broadway background and the Canadian bacon in the video. Guest judge Wayne Brady said he “completely agreed” with Jeong’s guess.
Jenny McCarthy unlocked that the numbers in the clue package spelled “Frank.” McCarthy guessed Jason Alexander because Frank Costanza played his father on Seinfeld.
Wayne Newton was also guessed.
During the clue package, the reference to “Copacabana” made the judges wonder if it might be Barry Manilow; however, Manilow’s voice is quite distinct and it doesn’t quite match the tone of the Broccoli singer.
New episodes of The Masked Singer season 4 air on Wednesday nights at 8/7c on FOX.
