This season of The Masked Singer is set up to be a big one! More theme nights, more twists, and more powerhouse singers. Even though, not ALL the singers are so big…physically. The gnome will be taking the stage on premiere night with only a beard that’s larger than life! And hopefully a voice that will stack up to the competition from the Mustang.

But who could the celebrity under the Gnome mask be? Here’s what we know so far about the secret celebrity’s identity!

Clues on The Masked Singer Season 9

Gnome kicks off his clues by saying he’s become a “mainstay in your lives” over his storied career. He catches a Monarch butterfly on his hand. He says, “just ask the producers” because he really has done it all. Two men in black dance into the frame dressed as sunflowers. He’s “joked with the cleverest comedians” name-dropping Robin Williams and Ben Stiller. He’s performed with the biggest names in music, from Lin Manuel Miranda to Madonna. The men in black take out yellow umbrellas while it starts to rain.

The Gnome’s address book consists of “all the President’s men” from Barack to Biden. One of the men in black holds up a trophy with Tony Danza on it. Gnome claims that being a true entertainer isn’t about money or awards, but about putting a smile on people’s faces.

The last clue we got after his performance was a swag bag with a medal with JFK on it. Gnome explained “I met President Biden and said ‘I used to be as tall as you’ and he said ‘I used to have hair like you!'”


Popular Guesses for The Masked Singer Gnome

The panelists said they instantly recognized Gnome’s voice, specifically Robin. Jenny thought this was the biggest celebrity they’ve ever had! Nicole predicted this was Dustin Hoffman. From the clues, Robin guessed Mel Brooks at first but after hearing his voice, he agreed that it’s Dustin Hoffman. Ken threw out Robert DeNiro as his guess.

After his first performance, the Gnome was the first to be unmasked. And he was revealed to be…


Dick VanDyke!

It was incredible to see such an iconic star be the first one unmasked in season 9. If he is any indication, the star power this season will be on a whole other level!

Sounded incredible for A man who is 97! I hope they let him come back as a guest panelist. Even More iconic than Betty White ( I said it!) And not in the spotlight.
