Axolotl on 'The Masked Singer' — The Clues

Based on the beloved salamander-like sea creature, this big-headed sweetheart is decked out in a fancy pink suit. Ahead of her debut performance, Axolotl shared some really vague clues about her identity. Her clues were:

  • Pompoms
  • “As a kid, I was bullied so bad I had to transfer schools”
  • Struggled with an eating disorder
  • Raw steak
  • Diamond ring
  • Gold boxing bell
  • Says she heard a song that helped her recover, then fell in love with the man who sings it

A Live Clue was also presented by NFL star Robert Woods: The number 2.3 million. “That’s how many people watch me when I work, and that’s just on a Monday,” Axolotl said, which led the judges to assume Axolotl might be a wrestler on Monday Night RAW

Jenny hit the nail on the head with her guess of Alexa Bliss, who was unmasked on the March 22 episode of The Masked Singer.

"This was something that is personal for me," she said of her struggle with stage fright. "I am so proud of myself... I conquered my fear. I deal with anxiety... do something every day that scares you."
