The American reality singing competition known as The Masked Singer has kept audience members on their toes for six seasons now, and it doesn't look like there are any signs of the show slowing down. The show involves a panel of judges trying to guess which celebrity is singing beneath an elaborate costume.
During the two-part Season 6 premiere, fans were introduced to The Skunk, who wears an adorable hat with a fluffy, fur-lined costume. Fans have been eager to discover who is in the costume, so read on for more info — including clues about the Skunk's identity, our best guesses for who is behind the mask, and the eventual big reveal!
The Skunk on 'The Masked Singer' — The Clues
Let's analyze the clues that have been given for Skunk's identity so far. In the first clue package, Skunk appears with a train; a ticket to Seoul, South Korea; and a vase with the letter "D." Skunk also emphasizes that she "took a break to focus on family" and that she may have been in a fight in the past.
Skunk's second set of clues revealed even more. In the second clue package, Skunk says she feels like she's "forever a student" but "life happens," and that she had a full-ride scholarship before she got "unexpected news that changed everything." During this sequence, Skunk pulls out and puts away a book labeled U.S. Government and instead picks up books about acting and golfing.
In Episode 4, we got yet another clue package for Skunk. It contained the following clues:
- The Pufferfish mask (indicating some sort of link to Toni Braxton!)
- A tray with a "family size" box of cookies, shrimp, grapes, cheese, and donuts
- "These days, I limit the people that I allow into my personal space."
- Disco dancing

Spoiler alert! While we don't know for sure who is behind The Skunk mask, the correct identity may be spoiled in the guesses below.
People on Instagram and behind the judges' table agree that based on voice and style, this classy lady can only be a legendary pop culture diva. As clues have continued to be revealed, fans think that the Skunk is songstress Faith Evans.
Faith dropped out of school after securing a full-ride scholarship to Fordham University to have her daughter, Chyna. She has also been involved with legal issues in the past. That might be a reference to the "fight" clue.
