Read on for what we know about the Squiggly Monster so far, and who we think might be singing behind the mask:
‘The Masked Singer’ Squiggly Monster Clues
Before the Squiggly Monster’s debut performance last week, their video clue package offered some note-worthy hints about who they are. Those clues included: cookies, a lock, a penguin, a salami, a game called “Super Squiggly World,” a stethoscope, a dog at a birthday party, a castle, a news desk, a DJ turntable, and a man in a top hat and monocle.
The Squiggly Monster called himself “easy on the eyes,” a “father figure,” a “maniac,” and a “worrywart.”
He has said “It’s very fitting that I have so many appendages. After all, I’m known for having a lot of hands to latch onto.”
At the start of the Squiggly Monster’s second clue package, he said, “America, the more time I spend canvassing in this costume, the more time the Squiggly Monster and I are becoming one.” Continuing, he added, “While I have a colorful exterior, there’s more to me than meets the eyes.”
The man behind the mask said that when he was growing up he was “bullied for being different” and “struck by a barrage of tragedies.” He said he turned to comedy to get through the tough times – is the celebrity a comedian?
Additional clues in the package included: a banana peel, a diner, a construction hat, a white powdered wig, the White House oval office, and a pineapple.
The Squiggly Monster’s “magic lamp” clue was a giant teddy bear. “I’m here to ‘bear’ it all, and that starts with this very cuddly clue.”
Squiggly Monster presented Nick Cannon with a hat, not as a clue necessarily but because he likes Cannon.
When asked “Have you ever gotten married?” Squiggly Monster said he is married.
Squiggly Monster on ‘The Masked Singer’ Guesses
After the Squiggly Monster sang “Have You Ever Seen the Rain” by Creedence Clearwater Revival, the judges guessed that he might be Dr. Anthony Fauci, Ray Romano, Brad Garrett, or Al Franken.
Online, one of the leading guesses for the Squiggly Monster’s star persona is comedian and Full House star Bob Saget. Entertainment Weekly points out that in addition to references to his role as “father figure” Danny on Full House, Saget fits the height and build of Squiggly Monster. Also, they point out that Saget has ties to The Masked Singer already, as he appeared as a celebrity friend to last season’s Tom Bergeron.
The Squiggly Monster took the Masked Singer stage for a second time to sing “(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction” by The Rolling Stones.
Based on the Squiggly Monster’s magic lamp clue, Jenny McCarthy guessed Ted Danson. Robin Thicke guessed David Hasselhoff, influenced by the pineapple clue and Hasselhoff’s appearance in The Spongebob Movie.
Swayed by the political clues, Ken Jeong guessed Al Gore. Guest judge Wayne Brady agreed with Jeong’s guess.
SPOILER ALERT: At the end of the night, the Squiggly Monster was eliminated and unmasked, revealing himself as comedian and actor BOB SAGET!
New episodes of The Masked Singer season 4 air on Wednesday nights at 8/7c on FOX.
