If you've been following along with the reality competition known as The Masked Singer, you probably know how the show works. A panel of three judges attempts to guess which celebrity is hiding behind an elaborate costume. Celebrities who have appeared on the show already include singers, actors, dancers, and even a few YouTubers.
In the second part of the Season 6 premiere, audiences were introduced to the Queen of Hearts character. Queen of Hearts is stylish in her bright red costume with a winking eye, a pair of blue lips, and a crown on her head. Fans have been eager to discover who is in the costume, so read on for more info — including clues about Queen of Heart's identity, our best guesses for who is behind the mask, and the eventual big reveal!
Queen of Hearts on 'The Masked Singer' — The Clues
The Queen of Hearts' first clue package has a few hints about her identity. Queen of Hearts sang "La Vie En Rose" in the preview show, hinting she speaks both French and English. Her clue package included a jewel, Wizard of Oz characters, shattered pieces, ten o'clock, a framed photo of Hilary Swank that reads "BFF," and Alice in Wonderland chess pieces. The Queen of Hearts' voice, while distorted, also had a Southern accent (although some viewers think the accent could be faked just to throw people's guesses off).
In Episode 5, we got another clue package for Queen of Hearts. It contained the following clues:
- Queen of Hearts says she is shy (but she doesn't come off as being shy on stage).
- A bouquet of pink flowers
- A quill pen
- Queen of Hearts reveals she is currently single.
- A picture of Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson
- A picture of a clown with the name "Joe Kerr IV"
- "I've never sung in French before."
Queen of Hearts on 'The Masked Singer' — The Guesses
Spoiler alert! While we don't know for sure who is behind the Queen of Hearts mask, the correct identity may be spoiled in the guesses below.
Many people seem to think that the Queen of Hearts is none other than Jewel. In one elaborate YouTube comment, a fan explains that the first clue is a bit obvious with the literal jewel. They also pointed out that the Wizard of Oz characters could be a nod to Jewel playing Dorothy in The Wizard of Oz in Concert in 1995. Jewel also has an album called Goodbye Alice in Wonderland and albums Picking up the Pieces and Pieces of You, which connect back to the given clues.
Others think that the Southern drawl and references to The Wizard of Oz clearly mean it's Kristin Chenoweth, who famously played Glinda in the original Broadway cast of Wicked. Some have even theorized that the person behind the mask is Mariska Hargitay, who is a known BFF of Hilary Swank.
