According to a report by Gold Derby, the Yeti is Omarion, the 'Ice Box' singer. He is one of the four wild card competitors to have made it this far. The Yeti first appeared in Week 6 when the judges made him sing 'If It Isn't Love' by New Edition. A week later, he nailed the cover of Justin Bieber's 'Lonely'. By now, it was evident that the Yeti would be someone like Omarion, the judges had Jason Derulo, Miguel and Trey Songz on their minds. What should have helped them make a correct guess was the video clue package.
"As a Yeti, I only come out of hiding for a mammoth reason, and here's its to be a loud force to be reckoned with so watch your step. Where I come from, too many Yetis become monsters but I had a secret weapon. A village of loyal women who were always there to show me the way. Having them as motivators and teachers made me the abominable gentleman I am today. Knowing these warriors have my back gave me the confidence to go for the mountaintop when others wouldn't even dare. Yetis are usually chased from the village but I was raised by it. Being here is a thank you to them, and you know they saved the best wild card for the last, yeah," the Yeti said in the clue package.
This aside, he was brought on to the stage in a giant snow cage, which was possibly a hint towards one of his biggest hits 'Ice Box.' The came the berry and jelly sandwich in the clue package. Even though it was an unusual snack, it could be a reference to Omarian's birth name: Omari Ishmael Grandberry. The third and final clue, which made it clear that it was indeed Omarion was the three cupcakes, which were a subtle hint to his album titles, 'B2K', 'Hooked Me Up', and 'Pandemonium'.
'The Masked Singer' airs every Wednesday at 8 pm ET on FOX.
