Avocado on 'The Masked Singer' — The Guesses

Spoiler alert! While we don't know for sure who is behind the Avocado mask, the correct identity may be spoiled in the guesses below.

Our best guess for Avocado is actor Erik Estrada. After The Masked Singer revealed its first clue, many fans on Reddit and Instagram thought the bag of chips represented Erik’s famous role as officer Francis Llewelyn "Ponch" Poncherello on CHiPS. We must admit; the clue is a dead giveaway for any fan of the 1970s drama.

While Erik is our top choice, fans and the judges have also made other predictions. On Wednesday’s episode, Robin revealed he thinks Avocado could be Tim Allen. The “Lost Without U” singer predicted Tim because of his comedic chops and his role as Tim “The Toolman” Taylor on the sitcom Home Improvement.

Some fans even guessed Avocado is none other than Ken Jeong himself. The Hangover star is around the same height as the costume, and he jokes about his singing career all the time. Nonetheless, Ken is still a judge for Season 8, so that prediction is unlikely.

Tom Brady is also a top prediction for most sports fans. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers player reportedly loves anything avocado-related, so it’s easy to see how viewers chose him. Unfortunately, Tom confirmed on Twitter in August 2022 that he “wasn't on The Masked Singer.”

Other guesses for Avocado include:
