'The Masked Singer' Season 7 Spoilers: Is Joe Buck the Ram? Here are the clues
Season 7 of 'The Masked Singer' may have just premiered last week, but the show's fans are already playing Sherlock Holmes by trying to deduce the identity of the celebrity hiding underneath the elaborate masks. The premiere episode's unmasking witnessed celebrity pastry chef Duff Goldman emerging from the McTerrier's mask. Following the first unmasking, fans are busy trying to uncover the identity of the other celebrities on the show and are convinced that sports commentator Joe Buck might be underneath the Ram mask from Team Bad.
With all the sports-related clues and even the Rams costume, you might be tempted to guess that there's an athlete hiding underneath the mask, and you wouldn't be alone as the show's celebrity judges aka Ken Jeong, Robin Thicke, Nicole Scherzinger, and Jenny McCarthy too did the same. But after carefully analyzing the clues, several hawk-eyed fans believe that it's sports commentator Joe Buck underneath the Ram mask! Suprised? Keep reading to see why fans are convinced that it's Joe Buck masquerading as the Ram on the FOX show.
Clues for Ram Mask
Ahead of the show's release, the Ram was introduced to the world with a clue that featured a blue football helmet with yellow lettering and the number six on it. After Ram made his debut on the show, his clue package dropped more hints on his identity. The first was a giant sign which read 'Hamlet x Macbeth' hinting at the celebrity's association with theater or stage performances. Then Ram is seen shaving his antlers using his "Ram-scaper", he attributes it as his secret to keeping his head in the game and also his smooth look. He also adds that Papa Ram taught him everything he knows.
He says, "My entire life I've hears boos and cheers, but I'm used to telling stories under these lights. I've worked my whole life to get where I am today." He concludes by urging everybody not to be a Sheep but to be a Ram. Aside from the clue package that heavily hinted at a person from the sports or athletic world, Ram also gave a pretty good performance to 'I Want You to Want Me' by Cheap Trick.

Is Joe Buck under the Ram mask?
The judges took the bait and began name-dropping several athletes who they believed could be underneath the massive costume. Jenny guessed it is Jim Harbaugh, while Ken believed it was Matthew Stafford, Robin guessed Peyton Manning. Ram then dropped the biggest clue by declaring that all the judges were 'dead freakin' wrong.' This final hint paved the way for fans to look beyond athletes and led them to zero in on sports commentator Joe Buck.
A fan perfectly decoded the clues and connected them to the famous sports commentator on the show's YoutTube page. The fan wrote, "The clues definitely point to Joe Buck. First of yes lots of football clues indeed which of course Joe Buck definitely does football broadcasts. Also yes his father was also a sportscaster aka Jack Buck who did St. Louis Cardinals Games. Of course we saw a BUCK in the clues duh his name. The horse clue you would think it’s involving the football teams but actually, Joe Buck did call horse racing in the 90s actually. Oh and since Jenny couldn’t figure out the Macbeth x Hamlet clue, it means play by play which Joe Buck does. Jenny dissatisfied me when she said Jim Harbaugh as well as the audience . My guess is he’s doing Masked Singer because he’s done with Fox Sports and heading to ESPN. I also recognize the voice because I remember his voice commentary on World Series games when Detroit Tigers were in the playoffs at the time and Buck was the announcer for that game when David Ortiz hit That Home Run over the fence that Tori Hunter flips over so when you know you know. Nobody should even try to guess Ram because it’s definitely percent Joe Buck. Who knows we might get baseball clues next from Ram."
Another fan commented, "Yes. I compared the voice of Ram . That is INDEED Joe Buck. The clues definitely had so much on football and when u hear his voice, you recognize it. That’s Joe Buck guys." "It has to be joe buck! lots of sports clues Macbeth x Hamlet aka Play by Play The slow zoom on the antlers aka BUCK he also is the son of jack buck a sports casting legend," pointed a fan. "It's definitely Joe Buck. I could hear his voice clearly on stage and in the clues there was a buck, which is his last name," observed a fan. "It's definitely Joe Buck definitely sounds like him!" echoed a fan. "If this is Joe Buck he put more emotion into this performance than he did in his entire career of sports commentating.," joked a fan.
While all the clues do point at Joe Buck possibly being the Ram, we will have to wait until the unmasking to see whether it is indeed him or not. We can't wait to see who is hiding underneath the Ram mask, but until then we'll be looking for more clues that might confirm our guesses.
'The Masked Singer' Season 7 airs every Wednesday at 8/7c on FOX.
