Clues on The Masked Singer Season 10

The Cuddle Monster started his clues by saying that he was a wild child, while lightning strikes the ground in front of him. He claimed that he “grew up in a beautiful but sometimes violent place” but luckily he got out. We see eyes in the sky. He got out “because of [his] passion,” a generational talent. The clues then showed a bubbling bride, shoes, and boxing gloves in the air while Cuddle Monster mentioned he had sponsorship deals, sneakers, and even a record or two.

He was self-destructive during the peak of his career, he explained while a gold bull trophy appeared on the screen. The Cuddle Monster couldn’t figure out why he was always happy and defensive, so he finally got help. All he needed was “a change of perspective and persona.” The Trolls then gave a clue of a glowing globe with “CHAMP” written on it, as some people walked by with a stool and a shield.


Popular Guesses for The Masked Singer Cuddle Monster

Robin predicted that Cuddle Monster could be Dennis Rodman. Ken agreed it could be a basketball star, throwing out Draymon Green as his guess. Nicole thought it could be Shaq, based on his size and past music career! The most popular guesses online included Shaquille O’Neal, Michael Strahan, Mike Tyson, James Corden, or (in one of the most hilarious predictions yet) Kevin Hart. Wouldn’t it be amazing to see him in this GIANT costume? I love that guess.
