'The Masked Dancer' is finally picking up among the audience. One of the reasons could be that the celebrities this season are really tough to decode and the clue packages are really interesting, the kind that makes you turn into an internet sleuth and get to work on finding out who these masked celebrities could be.

The third episode of the debut season of 'TMD' aired on January 13 where Group B battled it out once again on stage. Zebra, Miss Moth, Sloth, and Cotton Candy danced their feet off in a bid to cement their position in the Super Six of the show. Kicking off this episode was the never still and ever-moving Zebra. 

What are the new clues for the Zebra?

Zebra's first clue package that aired during last week's episode had a third-place medal, a license plate reading 154-128, a vintage convertible, a magazine with a picture of the Zebra on it, which read “This Is a Clue” as the visual clues. This week's clue package opened with him saying that after his first performance he got back some of what he’s been missing “ever since my golden promotion to ZEO.” He was also looking at a website that said "Dad's Appliance Store".

He also said that he was thankful for the “support of great mentors and friends.” Zebra also said that “love will always help you fight through,” adding, “If I can channel the love, I’ll come out on top," according to a Heavy report. Some visual clues included a leopard print desk, a UFO with the letters “UFC” on the side of it, a vinyl record that he broke in half, a detonated bomb as well as a cinnamon powder bottle. 

Who do the judges think the Zebra is?

Paula Abdul noted that he moves like a boxer. He constantly keeps moving just like boxers do to keep their heart rate up. She deduced that the Zebra is Floyd Mayweather because he fought Canelo which when translated to Spanish means cinnamon. She tied it all up together with the cinnamon guess in the package. Brian Austin Green went with another UFC fighter Tito Ortiz as his guess. 

Is Belal Muhammad the Zebra?

Belal is an American mixed martial artist who is currently competing in the UFC Welterweight division. He goes by the moniker ‘Remember the Name’ and is known for his iron chin and gritty fighting style.

The dad's appliance clue could mean that Belal is the Zebra. His father's store was vandalized when mass riots broke out across the country earlier this year during the George Floyd protests. 



The Zebra has made it to the Super Six and whether he wins or not and if he's any of the above-mentioned celebrities or otherwise, only time will tell. 'The Masked Dancer' airs Wednesdays at 8 pm on FOX.
