Update: Looks like few people guessed the right man in the mask! On Oct. 7, it was revealed that Brian Austin Green was the voice behind the Giraffe on The Masked Singer Season 4. Keep reading to see who fans initially predicted.
For one thing, it features the first-ever singing duo in the form of the Snow Owls and the season also is making history because it was shot in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic.
Someone better get out the tape measurer to see if the Snow Owls stay six feet apart!
Judges Nicole Scherzinger, Robin Thicke, Jenny McCarthy Wahlberg, and Ken Jeong will definitely have their work cut out for them in more ways than one.
Especially when it comes to figuring out which famous celeb is hiding under the giraffe costume.
Who is Giraffe on 'The Masked Singer'? Here are the clues.
Ahead of the premiere, The Masked Singer released a few hints about the Giraffe's identity. First, host Nick Cannon described what the Giraffe's ornate costume meant.
"All the way from the African savannah, stretching the limits of fashion with a fancy wig and spectacular jacket, ready to stick their neck out above the competition, meet the Giraffe," Nick said.
The altered voice behind the Giraffe then gave some clues.
"Giraffes are consistent, reliable, and above all, they never stop walking tall. Sometimes, when I'm performing, I feel like I'm going to throw up. But, that would take too long," the person continued. "I just keep my head held high and reach for the giraffe-ters."
The Season 4 competitor concluded the first set of clues with one big (and puzzling) final tease. "If you're looking for a hint to my identity, you should know that I share something in common with a powerful giant," the contestant finished. "America, trying to figure out my identity is going to be a real pain in the neck."
More recent clues include his career is a "rollercoaster of ups and downs" and "music was in his blood."
These are the top guesses about the Giraffe so far:
Vanilla Ice: After performing the Blacked Eyed Peas song "Let's Get It Started," viewers (and judge Robin Thicke) were convinced the singer was none other than rapper Vanilla Ice.
"Me and Robin Thicke are thinking alike... Giraffe is Vanilla Ice," one fan tweeted. Another agreed, adding, "I do kinda agree with Robin that Giraffe is Vanilla Ice. I can hear him in Giraffe’s voice."
Peyton Manning: Some viewers of the teaser clip went in an entirely different direction, and they guessed former NFL quarterback Peyton Manning. People connected him to the "powerful giant" clue because Peyton's brother is the former quarterback of the New York Giants, Eli Manning. Peyton also stands tall at 6'5", which would go along well with the height clues.
Travis Barker: Judge Jenny McCarthy was quick to name Blink-182 drummer, pointing to the plane crash he survived as a major link to the clue that his career is a "rollercoaster of ups and downs."
A few other popular theories are that the Giraffe could be a boy band member, magician Penn Jillette, or Johnny Knoxville. Based on the wide scope of guesses, we can't wait to hear Giraffe sing again. Hopefully, it will help narrow down the list.
