'The Masked Singer' Season 3 : Bret Michaels is the Banana, fans say the clues have them convinced
'The Masked Singer' Season 3 is one of the most talked-about shows at the moment. Its unique concept has generated a lot of discussions online wherein fans discuss each episode at length and are actively involved in guessing the identity of the singer under the mask.
To provide a little background, when this season premiered, the series shared that participants of Season 3 amongst them have a combined total of 69 Grammy Nominations, 88 Gold Records, 11 Super Bowl appearances, three stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, more than 160 tattoos and one title in the Guinness Book of World Records.
Tonight's (March 4) episode saw Group B - Banana, Taco, Miss Kitty and The Frog head into the competition to secure their spot on the Top 9. Based on the clue packages, fans have taken to Twitter and are taking their guesses on who could be under the Banana mask but more on that later. In the clue package, there were two women who gave an insight into what Banana meant to them. One of them said, “When we were younger, banana actually thought us how to drive and got us go-karting. He decided to build a race track in our backyard and he dug up all the bushes himself and he would do anything to make us smile”. The second woman mentioned,” He’s been through a lot of heartbreak in his life but he always smiles."
Banana took to the stage later and crooned to ‘Lean on Me’ by Bill Withers. Commenting on his song choice, Banana mentioned, “My father is my best friend and he recently passed away. He loved music and this was our jam." Post this, the guessing game began among the judges.
To make it a little easier, Banana decided to give away his friendship bracelet to Jenny McCarthy as a clue. The bracelet said Nineties Love. He added, “We had a chance to hang out, I love you and you are an awesome person” which led to Jenny racking her head about who this person could be.
Nicole Scherzinger weighed in with her guess, “I’m going to go a different route. I think it’s Brad Paisley.” Ken Jeong was convinced its Larry the Cable guy under the Banana mask. Later on, special guest T-Pain took his guess and mentioned he believes it is none other than Johnny Knoxville under the mask to which Jenny was quick to add, “How many times are we going to guess Johnny Knoxville on the show?"
Fans of the show took to social media to weigh in and take their guesses as well and they're sure that it is none other than Bret Michaels. A user tweeted, "Bret Michaels as the Banana makes more sense than Engvall/Foxworthy #MaskedSinger ". Another fan wrote, "I think the Banana is Bret Michaels. Thought it from the start. And the clues do work for him. #maskedsinger ".
A fan that goes by the username Emo Ashley tweeted, "Im watching the masked singer, which I’ve NEVER seen before, but I am CONVINCED the banana is Bret Michaels". Fan Rachel Rosenthal was shocked when none of the judges could guess that it could be Michaels. She tweeted, "I can’t believe none of the judges guessed Bret Michaels is the banana. #maskedsinger "
