The Masked Singer season 4 is underway, and the 5 remaining contestants from “Group B” are taking the stage for a second performance on Wednesday, October 14 for the Group B Playoffs round of the competition. One of those contestants is the Crocodile.
So, what do we know about the Crocodile so far, and who do we think might be performing from behind the mask? Read on to find out.
BEWARE OF EPISODE 4 SPOILERS BELOW.
‘The Masked Singer’ Crocodile Clues So Far
The Crocodile’s “sneak peek” clue, released ahead of the season premiere, teased, “A special set of keys reversed my game forever. Tic-tac-whoa.”
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 of those notable accomplishments belongs to the person behind the Crocodile mask?
In the Crocodile’s first animated clue package of the season, several visual clues stood out, including a lagoon, tiki torches, slip n’ slide, red heart balloons, a rainbow, a hotel, a fountain. He said he grew up in Hollywood and is “happiest in water.”
At the start of the Crocodile’s episode 4 clue package, he said, “Becoming the Crocodile has really revived my passion for performing,” adding that he last had this kind of love for performing when he was a kid.
A skull and crossbones early in the package made the judges wonder if he’s connected to pirates in some way. The animated video package focused on the Crocodile’s relationship with his father and his struggle to get his father’s approval and support early in his career. He said, “My own father didn’t believe in my talent.” He revealed he gave his first check for $100 to his father, and his dad cried when he saw it.
“Shazaam” was another clue the judges made note of, and he also seems to be associated with the American flag and performing in New York City.
His childhood clue was a Crocodile piñata with little dolphins inside of it. The Crocodile told the judges and Nick Cannon, “I just cracked the case wide open, because this clue has an important porpoise to it.” That hint left the judges as stumped as ever as to who he might be.
Top Guesses for Crocodile on ‘The Masked Singer’
After the Crocodile’s first Masked Singer performance of “It’s My Life” by Bon Jovi, the judges guessed he might be Jon Hamm, Nick Lachey, or Donnie Wahlberg.
The Crocodile took a sharp turn with his second performance, choosing to sing and dance to “Toxic” by Britney Spears. The panelists were impressed by his versatility as a performer, and predicted that he will continue to switch things up week after week.
Jenny McCarthy guessed Adam Lambert, and Robin Thicke agreed with that guess. Ken Jeong said the Crocodile’s falsetto reminded him of Lenny Kravitz. Guest judge Joel McHale guessed Harry Connick Jr., who was in Dolphin Tale.
New episodes of The Masked Singer season 4 air on Wednesday nights at 8/7c on FOX.
