Who Is The Frog? ‘The Masked Singer’ Predictions and Clues Decoded!
A whole new group of six celebrities was introduced this week on The Masked Singer. And the night kicked off with a lively rap performance by the Frog.
Here are the clues and predictions for the Frog so far!
Clues On ‘The Masked Singer’ Season 3
In the show clues, the Frog starts with “The Daily Ribbit” newspaper. The headlines read, “TADPOLE PLUCKED FROM LARGE CREEK!” and “FROGS ARE JUMPING! FROGS ARE JUMPING!” He says, “I leapt to stardom as fast as a lightning bolt.” But he never had a chance to evolve and do things his way. A bag of leftovers is shown with hush puppies falling out of it. He was “slithering with the big frogs,” he says as a 1996 Olympics poster is shown. Last, we see a microphone with a Facebook “like” symbol on it and $106, in three bills.
Popular Guesses for The Frog
Most of the panelists were focused on the Olympics clue, so they thought it could be an athlete. Jenny guessed Michael Johnson, and Ken predicted Carl Lewis. But Nicole threw out Ray J as an option. Online, the most popular guesses are Bow Wow, Kevin Hart, Terrence J, or Bruno Mars.
Our Prediction For The Frog on ‘The Masked Singer’
But one prediction has stood out as the most common one. And rightfully so because the clues make sense for this celebrity too! That person is…Bow Wow!
Formerly known as Lil’ Bow Wow, the rapper still has the crazy, fun energy and stage presence he had as a younger performer. Here’s how we know it’s him!
in the newspaper at the beginning, we see headlines reading, “TADPOLE PLUCKED FROM LARGE CREEK!” and “FROGS ARE JUMPING! FROGS ARE JUMPING!” The first is talking about how he started rapping at the young age of six. The latter is referring to his feature on a “Jumpin’ Jumpin'” remix for Destiny’s Child. Frog then mentioned he “leapt to stardom as fast as a lightning bolt.” This is a nod to Bow Wow’s 2002 movie Like Mike, where he is struck by lightning and develops basketball skills like Michael Jordan. The movie is again referenced at the end of the clues when we see a Facebook “like” symbol in front of a microphone.
Frog goes on to talk about how he was “slithering with the big frogs,” which could be alluding to the fact that he was discovered by Snoop Dogg. In fact, Snoop gave him his rape name, Lil’ Bow Wow. We also see a bag with “LEFTOVERS” written on it, also called a “doggy bag.” Doggy Bag was the name of Bow Wow’s second album. The 1996 Olympics poster is not referring to the literal Olympics, but Atlanta, where they took place and where Bow Wow lives. Finally, we saw $106, which is a nod to 106 and Park, a BET show that Bow Wow hosted from 2012-2014.
