Jenny McCarthy, a judge on The Masked Singer, has long speculated that her husband, Donnie Wahlberg, could be under the Rabbit mask. In a recent interview with ET, Donnie neither confirms or denies that he is the Rabbit.
Watch the clip for yourself here before hopping to any conclusions!
As Donnie noted, he is currently the second top guess for the Rabbit on The Masked Singer. And some of the clues do add up! Donnie was in a boy band, New Kids on the Block. The Rabbit has mentioned many times that he started in a group.
Donnie also knows a lot about the show! But his wife is a judge on it after all so that is easily explained. She has mentioned multiple times though that Donnie never answers the phone when the Rabbit is on the stage. Could she just be trying to throw us all off? We wouldn’t put it past her.
Though Donnie is hesitant to put on the mask in the interview, it all seems to be a guise. At the beginning of the video, he talks about how he was going to step aside and stay at home, to give Jenny a chance to be on the show. If he was the Rabbit, he wouldn’t be able to do that. So while trying to leave the answer up in the air, he actually confirms that he is not the Rabbit.
But who could it be then? Well, we have our guesses, but we won’t know for sure until he’s unmasked. Don’t miss The Masked Singer, every Wednesday at 9pm on FOX.
