Hummingbird on 'The Masked Singer' — The Guesses
Spoiler alert! While we don't know for sure who is behind the Hummingbird mask, the correct identity may be spoiled in the guesses below.
While the information currently available about the Hummingbird isn't a lot to go on, fans of The Masked Singer are trying their best! There has been wide speculation throughout the fandom that football player Tom Brady will appear this season (a rumor he already denied). However, with Hummingbird's height and suit (football players are known for wearing suits off the field), he seems like an obvious choice.
Our top guess, however, is that Hummingbird is Chris Kirkpatrick. Hear us out.
The NSYNC band member played at the Super Bowl halftime show in 2000 alongside Aerosmith, Britney Spears, and Nelly — which explains all of the football references.
As for his connection to Shaq, NSYNC recorded their first album at his house, as this Reddit user pointed out.
Hummingbird "knows a thing or two about competition" because Chris was on Celebrity Big Brother.
Also, the "71-0" on the scoreboard was a reference to 1971, the year Chris was born.
In a preview for the Season 8 premiere, judge Ken Jeong suggested that Hummingbird could be Peyton Manning, who has two Super Bowl rings.
Other guesses fans have for the Hummingbird include:
- Adam Sandler
- Hulk Hogan
So, who is the Hummingbird on 'The Masked Singer'? The answer is…
While Hummingbird was eliminated in Episode 1, leaving Harp as the first Queen of The Masked Singer, his identity won't be revealed until Episode 2 airing on Sept. 28.
