Who is the Pepper? ‘The Masked Singer’ Prediction + Clues Decoded!
Season six of The Masked Singer is heating up! Not only from a competition standpoint, but literally. We now have a Pepper as a Wildcard, and this Pepper can SING! We may see her around for a while.
But who is under the Pepper mask? And what are the clues that prove her identity? Let’s get into it!
Clues on The Masked Singer Season 6
In her first set of clues when she entered the show as the Wildcard, Pepper says she’s always had her “own flavor.” She’s holding a phone with her doing a TikTok dance in “Chiliwood” on it. Pepper is “constantly thinking of ways to not be bland.” But this last year has been the craziest, she claims while reaction icons from Facebook pour out from the phone she’s holding. Something she did went viral “basically overnight.”
Then, it shows her placing an “X” on a tic-tac-toe board, making three in a row. The coolest part for her was seeing people take what she did and “add their own flavor to it.” The men in black are shown dancing with Pepper, then one holds up a sign that read “KEEP DREAMING”. She closes saying she’s doing this to “strike while the iron’s hot” and to “keep the flame alive.”
After her performance, Pepper’s clue was a pair of roller skates. She explains, “You bring roller skates to a party because you don’t need a driver’s license.”
Popular Guesses for The Masked Singer Pepper

Many fans online agree that Pepper is Olivia Rodrigo, but other popular guesses include Natasha Bedingfield, Addison Rae, or one of the D’Amelio sisters.
Who is the Pepper on The Masked Singer?
Well just hearing that voice brought me back to the early 2000’s listening to some of this singer’s hits. And going through the clues only reaffirmed my suspicions. The Pepper is…
Again, her iconic voice from songs like “Unwritten” and “Pocketful of Sunshine” can’t be disguised! Now let’s break down all the clues we’ve seen so far.
All the TikTok clues point to the recent dance trend with a remix of her song “Unwritten.” It went viral on the platform earlier this year, even though the song itself was released in 2004. The “X” she places on the tic-tac-toe board could be a nod to her time as a guest judge on The X Factor in New Zealand. The “KEEP DREAMING” sign could be referring to her song “Dream Big” or just the general sentiment of the “Unwritten” lyrics.
And finally, maybe the most obvious clue of all, the roller skates. On her latest album, “Roll With Me,” Natasha Bedingfield has a song called “Roller Skate.” I mean, c’mon! At least TRY to make it more difficult!
