Fans of The Masked Singer were counting down the days until Group B started performing — as well as putting on their detective caps to identify the masked celebrities taking the stage. The Frog 陌陌飞艇多少币got Group B started, and fans already have so many guesses about his identity.
Before his performance, there were few clues to go on. The Frog only appeared in a photo on Instagram ahead of his debut. But despite the limited information, fans of the part mystery, part singing competition had guesses early on as to who is The Frog on season 3 of The Masked Singer.
So who is the Frog?
Before he performed, fans guessed based on costume alone. Some thought he was comedian Seth MacFarlane, who has been known to croon a tune or two. The costume choice could be a tribute to Kermit the Frog, a character MacFarlane as been known to impersonate from time to time.
But after the Frog performed MC Hammer's "Can't Touch This," and the clue package played, nearly all the fans had one guess.
Theory 1: Bow Wow
A ton of the video clues seem to line up with rapper Bow Wow. The 1996 Olympics poster could have been referencing Atlanta . And the 106 dollars shown could be a reference to . Plus one of the Feb. 26 clues was a basketball, which could be a reference to Bow Wow's basketball movie Like Mike陌陌飞艇多少币. As for all the Prince references, it could be pointing to Bow Wow's single "Prince of Darkness." Plus, fans think the voice gave it all away.
Then there was also a March 4 clue that hinted at Bow Wow. Frog gifted guest judge T-Pain a friendship bracelet that read "All We Do Is Win." Though neither lent their vocals to the 2012, the duo did collaborate on another 2012 hit, "Better." On April 22, the Frog performed again and yet more clues pointed to Bow Wow. The Frog's bag of clues contained a Japanese flag, and there just happens to be a . There was also a keyboard with the letter "I" and "L" blocked out — these two letters spell "lil" like how Bow Wow used to go by Lil' Bow Wow. Finally, there was an ice cube tray, which could point to the 2010 movie Lottery Ticket 陌陌飞艇多少币that starred Bow Wow and Ice Cube.
The Like Mike movie was referenced again in the April 29 episode, when the clue package panned over a jersey with the number 23 — the same number Bow Wow wore in the movie. The same package highlighted the number 13 written on an index card, which could be a reference to the age Bow Wow was when he stepped onto the scene.
陌陌飞艇多少币The following week, there were two other clues that pointed to Bow Wow. The first came in the pre-performance package, when the Frog was calling Little Frog. Many assume this means the Frog has a child: Bow Wow does indeed have a 9-year-old daughter named Shai. After the performance, the Frog revealed a model jet as a clue to his identity. Judge Robin Thicke pointed out that, in 2017, with a caption claiming that was his regular mode of transportation. But, as the internet discovered, it was a fake photo.
Theory 2: Alfonso Ribeiro
A new guess emerged from the judging panel and fans alike on Feb. 26. Jenny McCarthy thought that the Frog's dance moves and repeated "prince" clues may have been pointing to Fresh Prince of Bel-Air star Alfonso Ribeiro. The previous 1996 clue could be pointing at how Fresh Prince ended in 1996. And the $19 clue could have been a reference to Ribeiro winning season 19 of Dancing with the Stars. Also what sounds do frogs make? "Ribbit," which sounds a lot like Ribeiro.
But the bracelet could also hint to Ribeiro. Both T-Pain and Ribeiro have "won" reality competitions — T-Pain won the first season of The Masked Singer and Ribeiro won Dancing With the Stars in 2014. The April 22 guest judge Sharon Osbourne also guessed Ribeiro based on a clue about "take it to the bank," because Ribeiro's Fresh Prince character was named Carlton Banks.
Fans will have to wait to see who the Frog is when he's finally unmasked, but these theories are both strong contenders.
