Clues On The Masked Singer

In her first appearance, the Penguin says it’s “in her DNA” to strive for her voice to be heard. Her whole life, she’s been told she’s not pretty enough, not smart enough, and not funny enough. The clues show her on TV talking about her career being over. A photo of Queen Rania of Jordan is shown in the background. The Penguin has a “hit list” with “classroom bully, comedy club owner, Hollywood casting director, exes, the press, and myself” on it. She says, “I don’t need a permission slip from anyone to be who I am.” The Penguin closes by saying she’s “leading the march” while a bunch of protest signs are shown saying “I’M NOT YOUR SECRETARY” and “GIVEMTHEBIRD.”

Popular Guesses for the Penguin

Robin guessed Melissa McCarthy. Nicole guessed Megan Mullally, who played a secretary on Will and Grace. Jenny guessed Kathie Griffin, which Nicole compliments her on, then Sherri Shepherd. But Robin said the voice doesn’t sound like Sherri. The most popular guesses on Twitter are Sherri Shepherd, Tonya Harding, Raven-Symone, and Amy Schumer.

Our Prediction & Possible Spoilers

There are definitely a few possibilities for who the Penguin could be. But when it comes down to the voice and the clues we’ve seen, we have to guess it’s…Sherri Shepherd! We actually agree with Jenny here.

Here’s how the clues line up. The Penguin mentions being outspoken many times, which Sherri showed in her personality during her time on The View. She co-hosted the show from 2007-2014. The comment about her “career being over” could also allude to when she was fired from her position there. On the Penguin’s “hit list,” she mentions comedy club owners, Hollywood casting execs, exes, and the press, all of which Sherri has had feuds with publicly. The Penguin also says she “dares to be different,” which Sherri Shepherd has based her career on. Sherri has written a book called Permission Slips: Every Woman’s Guide to Giving Herself a Break, which would explain her saying she doesn’t need a “permission slip” in the clues. Finally, the “I’M NOT YOUR SECRETARY” sign is a reference to the fact that Sherri was a legal secretary before she began acting and doing comedy.

Also, in the “Super Sneak Peek,” the clues show the Penguin in a lot of different wigs. Sherri has her own line of wigs and hair add-ins. She also wears many wigs herself.
