Fans Think They’ve Got ‘Masked Singer’ Identities All Figured out Less Than a Day After Fox Premiere

What, you DON’T believe Donny Osmond is Peacock?

Fox’s new Nick Cannon-hosted celebrity singing game show, “The Masked Singer,” premiered (to huge Nielsen numbers) Wednesday, revealing at the end of its very first episode that the identity of one of its famous contestants — who performed disguised from head to toe in an elaborate hip-hop-style hippo costume — was none other than NFL wide receiver Antonio Brown.

However, we still don’t know the identities of Peacock, Deer, Lion, Monster and Unicorn, the contestants who wowed panelists Jenny McCarthy, Nicole Scherzinger, Ken Jeong and Robin Thicke and the studio audience enough to move on to next week’s competition.

Or at least we don’t officially know who they are, as some viewers are already taking to Twitter to try to decipher the clues about each masked famous person, which were given to them during last night’s show, a series based on the South Korean format created by Mun Hwa Broadcasting Corp.

The leading theory for Peacock appears to be Donny Osmond:

The overwhelming guess on Monster’s identity is T-Pain:

A decent number of viewers think Unicorn is Tori Spelling:

Fans were torn over Deer, with a pretty even split between the leading guesses of Terry Bradshaw or Peyton Manning:

By far, the character that seems to be stumping everyone the most was Lion, who viewers think might be a Kardashian, Rumer Willis or Paris Jackson:

And things will only get trickier as the season goes on, as there will be more masked singers joining the party in the weeks to come, with a total of 12 celebrities competing.

According to Fox, between all of the celebrity competitors on “The Masked Singer,” they’ve amassed 65 Grammy nominations, 16 multi-platinum albums, 16 Emmy nominations, nine Broadway shows, four stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and four Super Bowl titles.

“The Masked Singer” airs Wednesdays at 9/8c on Fox.
