LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: ‘The Masked Singer’ Season 8 mask Bride was introduced in ‘Hall of Fame Night’ episode. Previously, the masked singer competed with Gopher and Flytrap in Episode 7. With Gopher and Flytrap being eliminated and unmasked, Bride was declared to be the queen of the episode. However, in ‘The Masked Singer’ Season 8 Comedy Roast Night episode, Bride stalled while competing with new masked singers, Snowstorm and Avocado.
The Bride donned the stage dressed up in the mask of the pink dinosaur. The Bride wore the white wedding attire with a similar-colored veil attached to it. Moreover, the masked singer had a diamond-studded wedding ring and various other pieces of jewelry adding a spark to the dress. In the last episode, the clue revealed for this mask was that the Bride is not “she,” but instead is a male underneath the mask. Bride performed ‘White Wedding’ by Billy Idol in the Comedy Roast Night episode. He claimed in his clue package, “it’s not ladylike to showboat, but this Queen just can’t help herself.” Even though Bride managed to win the last episode but stalled in the Comedy Roast Night. The Bride was eliminated in the middle and unmasked as wrestler Chris Jericho, making fans’ speculations come true. Let us dig into the clues.
Clues for Bride
The first clue that was slipped for this masked singer was a "wedding ring." The Bride mask brought two clues as it entered 'The Masked Singer's stage. The first clue saying, "Become a Hero Queen" was cut. The other clue said, "Act Up." Furthermore, comedian Jon Lovitz stepped in to bring the clue in a Comedy Roast Night episode, saying, “They have a movie career and they like to show off their chest, just like Jenny McCarthy, minus the movie career.”
Bride further adds in his clue package, “The Rex appeal is off the charts tonight.” After the clues, panelists' final guesses for this mask were Matthew McConaughey, Vin Diesel, Flea, and Sammy Hagar. Well, none of the judges’ guesses happened to be correct. Bride was unmasked to be a famous wrestler and Fozzy vocalist Chris Jericho.
Jericho is a renowned American-Canadian wrestler and singer.
The wedding ring clue was a connection to the ring name of this celebrity. Moreover, it could have also been a hint for his representation of the 'Ring of Honor'. Jericho is a six-time world champion, therefore backstage performers dressed as champion trophies could be a hint to the various awards in his wrestling career. Jericho is also a lead vocalist of the heavy metal band Fozzy, therefore, his singing skills can’t be doubted.
It seems fans were already certain that it's Jericho underneath the Bride mask. Before the release of Episode 8, a fan took the sneak peek clip to the Reddit thread with the caption, "Bride performance." In no time 'The Masked Singer' fanatics started claiming that it is wrestler Jericho after watching the performance. A fan commented in the thread, "Sounds like Chris Jericho." Another wrote, "Y2J 100%. As a longtime wrestling fan, I'd know his voice anywhere. Drink it in, man..." "That is clearly Chris Jericho who is a new wrestler and lead singer of fozzy," wrote another fan. A YouTube fan commented on the clip, "Chris Jericho, aka “You Just Made The List” guy." Another wrote, "It's Chris Jericho from Aew/Wwe."
Snowstorm has been declared the winner of the Comedy Roast Night episode. 'The Masked Singer' Season 8 Episode 9 will release on November 23 at 8 pm ET on FOX.
