‘The Masked Singer’ Seahorse Clues So Far
The Seahorse’s “sneak peek” clue, released ahead of the season premiere, teased, “Living in the ocean can be dangerous, so it’s always good to find a quiet place to hide.”
FOX’s description of the season says that 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 Seahorse mask?
The Seahorse’s first animated clue package had a number of visual hints on display, including a cowboy hat, a bubble, a hollowed-out tree, a hog with warts, dolphins, two dogs, a white dove, teacups, and a rainbow stuffed frog. She revealed, “All my life I’ve felt trapped by my insecurities and shyness, too scared to release the fire burnin’ inside.”
The Seahorse’s episode 4 clue package was an emotional one. She opened up, revealing, “I’ve experienced unimaginable loss and pain.” Continuing, she added “No matter how dark the seas get, we just have to keep swimming.”
Some visual clues that popped out were a dolphin-drawn buggy, a clown wig, a “FAIL” branding, a broken heart, 5 winged clocks, and a “Place Your Bets” sign. She said “This isn’t my first rodeo,” suggesting she’s a professional performer. “A Thousand Years” was a key phrase – could it be Christina Perrie, who has a song called “A Thousand Years?”
The Seahorse’s childhood clue was a blue balloon with colorful feathers inside of it. The Seahorse told Nick Cannon, “Light as a feather, heavy on clues, this should help you not confuse.”
Top Guesses for Seahorse on ‘The Masked Singer’
The Seahorse sang “Only Girl (In the World)” by Rihanna for her first performance of the season, and the judges felt confident that the celebrity behind the mask is a recording artist. They guessed Halsey, Hailee Steinfeld, or Bebe Rexha.
The judges and Nick Cannon were in awe of the Seahorse’s episode 4 performance of “My Heart Will Go On” by Celion Dion, which they called “oustanding” and “perfect.” It’s clear she’s a professional singer.
Robin Thicke stuck with his original guess of Bebe Rexhe, while Jenny McCarthy guessed former Fifth Harmony member Camilla Cabello. Guest judge Joel McHale guessed Jessica Simpson, influenced by the Daisy Dukes in the clue package.
New episodes of The Masked Singer season 4 air on Wednesday nights at 8/7c on FOX.
