You wouldn't think of being able to drum up such wild theories and speculation, but that's exactly what Fox's new reality series The Masked Singer continues to do each and every week. Viewers are dying to know who's hiding behind those costumes, however, the one person in particular who has garnered a lot of audience attention is the Monster. And now, thanks to a new sneak peek, the Masked Singer Monster theories are starting to narrow down. In fact, the clip might have some fans wondering if the Masked Singer Monster is Corbin Bleu ̵
Since the start of the season, each performer has been tasked with not only singing a song for the judges, but also providing various clues about their identity to help make the predictions a bit easier. Thus far, the Monster has revealed that he's male and is dressed up as a monster because that's what society has called him in the past. He also said that he was at the top of his game but when the game decided to turn on him, he retreated into a cave to take a break from the spotlight. But now this show is his chance to show the world who really is by way of his vocal talents, even if he's not considered a professional singer "to everyone."
But now there's a new piece of information that can The Masked Singer on YouTube
"I like to keep my head in the game," the monster can be seen counting the celebrity thanks to this sneak peek of Wednesday's brand new episode. panel of judges in the teaser. Many of them take the clue quite literally, assuming that this is the person inside the costume is an athlete. (Robin Thicke guessed it could recently retired New York Yankee, Derek Jeter.) However, Nicole Scherzinger didn't take the comment as much face value, thinking that the monster is so light on his feet that he could be on Broadway star or comedian. Can anyone think of a Broadway performer known for keeping "his head in the game?"
E! News was quick to recall Bleu's breakout role in High School Musical where he starred as Chad Danforth, which just happened to include a musical number "Get'cha Head In The Game." Is it possible the Monster's phrasing meant to be a subtle nod to this particular scene?
Granted, there are a few hiccups in this assumption – like the fact that Bleu has never seemingly done anything to label himself as a "monster," so it's possible it won't end up being him after all. But you have to admit, it makes for a very interesting prediction.
More often than not these clues end up leading to more questions than answers, but that's all part of the fun. Either way, the Monster definitely has the voice in go competition in this competition, so odds are he'll be sticking around for a while – regardless of who he ends up being.
