Week after week we find ourselves eagerly tuning in to Fox's 'The Masked Singer' and playing the fun guessing game where celebrities hide underneath the elaborate and impeccably designed costume. One of the costumes in the ongoing Season 6 of 'The Masked Singer' is the Hamster.

In an earlier episode, the hamster left everybody speechless with his jaw-dropping rendition of Roy Orbison's 'Pretty Woman'.

Names like Jack Black to Tim Allen were thrown around by the judges when it came to guessing the identity of the hamster. However, based on the clues revealed, fans are convinced that the hamster could be none other than Rob Schneider. Read on to know why fans think it's Schneider underneath the mask.

Clues for the Hamster mask
This adorable-looking furry mammal dropped his first big clue when he revealed his reasoning behind picking the hamster costume. He explained that his body is very much shaped like a hamster and he was feeling a bit stuck and felt like he was on a wheel going round and round, thanks to being cooped up at home due to the pandemic. A close examination of the hamster costume reveals his super-blingy headphones and several colorful necklaces hanging around his neck.
All the props placed in his clue package had a huge star marked on them. He also dropped another major hint when he casually revealed that he tends to jump from one project to the next with his "famous friends". The camera then zoomed in on a goldfish inside a fishbowl and a picture of Alcatraz Island. During the school night episode, the hamster's locker was opened and it revealed a baseball bat and a strawberry plush toy. The hamster explained that he liked playing baseball, although he gave no explanation for why the strawberry was in his locker.
Although at an initial glance these clues might seem very vague and confusing, hawk-eyed fans quickly connected the dots and came to the conclusion that they were all pointing towards Rob Schneider.
Is Rob Schenider under the Hamster mask?
Now let's unpack each of the clues and see how they all fit in with Rob Schneider. The stars that seem to be scattered everywhere might be a tribute to his Hollywood Walk of Fame star. While the fish might be referencing his iconic scene of crashing into a fish tank in the movie 'Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigolo', the biggest giveaway was when the hamster revealed that he jumps from one project to another with his 'famous friends'. Rob has taken on multiple projects with his long-time fellow celeb friends- Chris Rock, Adam Sandler and David Spade!
The poster of Alcatraz Island could be a nod to his hometown San Francisco. The final clue of baseball and strawberry can be explained by Rob's role in the movie 'Benchwarmers' and also because he played baseball. The strawberry plush toy might be a joke at Rob's three Razzies!
Several fans too are convinced about Schenider being the voice behind the hamster mask. A fan commented on the show's YouTube page with, "Rob Schneider and here’s why: “Famous friends”: Adam Sandler and company “Alcatraz Island” as Jenny mentioned: he’s from San Fran, CA The baseball bat in the locker is a hint to Benchwarmers. He also loves Elvis and did a good Elvis impression in his performance." Another fan wrote, "Rob for sure ! That fish in the fish tank definitely a deuce bigalo reference." "We know this is Rob Schneider. But I wonder what the letters on the Hamster wheel mean?," wondered a fan.
All clues do point at Rob Schenider possibly being the hamster. We can't wait to see who is hiding underneath the skunk mask, but until then we'll be looking for more clues that might confirm our guesses.
'The Masked Singer' Season 6 airs every Wednesday at 8/7c on FOX.
