Who is the Hamster? ‘The Masked Singer’ Prediction + Clues Decoded!
Season six of The Masked Singer is already bringing the twists and the FUN! The Hamster took the stage with a ton of energy as the first Wildcard of the season. But his big costume conceals the identity of the celebrity underneath.
So who could it be under The Masked Singer Hamster mask? We’re breaking down all the clues and making our prediction!
Clues on The Masked Singer Season 6
In his first set of clues, the Hamster cracks a lot of jokes and talks about how he’s felt “stuck in a bit of a wheel.” There are stars decorating everything in his hamster cage. He says he’s usually “jumping from one project to the next with my famous friends.”
We see a red fish in a case. The camera then pans to a poster of Alcatraz Island. Hamster is used to being in “all different kinds of arenas,” but now he’s breaking routine to get out all his pent up energy.
After his first performance, we saw some Hamster clues in his locker. In there was a baseball bat and ball and a stuffed strawberry toy. He explains, “It’s sunny and I like to play baseball.”
Popular Guesses for The Masked Singer Hamster
Ken says that with that kind of energy, Hamster reminds him of himself. He predicts Hamster may be Bill Murray or Brendan Fraser. Jenny chimes in to guess Albert Brooks, Tim Allen, Kelsey Grammer, or Andy Richter. Nicole says he’s “gotta be a comedian,” suggesting it might be Jack Black under the mask.
People on social media are also thinking that Nicole may be right and it’s Jack Black. Other popular guesses are Seth Rogen, Kevin Hart, Rob Schneider, and Rick Astley.
Who is The Hamster on The Masked Singer?
After some expert clue research and watching videos of comedians singing, we’ve definitely got this one figured out! The Hamster is…
If the clues and sense of humor weren’t enough, Schneider singing with his daughter Elle King sealed the deal. That voice is spot on!
The clues all make sense for Rob Schneider too. The stars decorating his cage could all be referencing his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. The fish is a nod to the iconic scene in Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigolo where he crashed a fish tank.
Hamster mentions “jumping from one project to the next with my famous friends,” which is obviously talking about Adam Sandler, Chris Rock, and David Spade, with whom he’s done multiple projects.
The poster of Alcatraz Island also lines up with Rob Schneider, because he’s from San Francisco. Hamster mentioned being in “all different kinds of arenas” too, and Schneider is an actor, comedian, screenwriter, and director.
Finally, the two locker clues point to Schneider as well. The baseball is because he used to play baseball, and because he was in the movie Benchwarmers about a baseball team. And the stuffed strawberry I take to be a subtle hint at his history of winning Razzies. Gotta laugh at yourself, I guess!
