One of the last costumes to be revealed was the Snowstorm, looking fierce in all the promos for this season. But will they light up the stage or be the victim of a stone cold double elimination? And who could the celebrity under the mask be? Let’s get into what we know about Snowstorm.
Clues on The Masked Singer Season 8
The day before the season premiere, we finally got our first clue for Snowstorm! It appeared on The Masked Singer‘s Instagram and showed a scarf underneath their costume, using a “mask-ray.” When she took the stage, we got a clue that Snowstorm “can’t sit down.”
During Comedy Roast Night, we got our first real set of clues. She started by saying “to do what I do, you have to be cold-blooded.” She claims that she can be a “b-lizard” when she wants to be, but she’s really “just the sweetest thing.” We see her roasting nuts over a fire. Snowstorm started working when she was 18, and it took two years before she saw herself on the screen. Being a woman, she had to “snowplow [her] way into a male-dominated industry.” She is seen ripping a sign that says “SPEED DATING” on it.
Snowstorm mentions that “things haven’t always been pitch perfect.” We then see a magazine with her on the cover and text reading “Masked Comic Universe” that she hits out of one of the men in black’s hands. She claims she’s “had some failures” but “bombing wildly” has made her fearless. She says this performance goes out to Nicole, “who’s had more famous exes than Nick has had baby mamas.” One of the men in black is seen holding up a “Welcome” sign.
After her performance, Jon Lovitz gave the clue that she’s “shared the stage with A-listers like Rob Lowe and non-A-listers like Dr. Ken.”
Popular Guesses for The Masked Singer Snowstorm
Ken thought through people who might’ve shared the stage with him and guessed Snowstorm could be Heather Graham or Kathryn Hahn. For Nicole, the clues point to Zooey Deschanel but the voice she thought might belong to Iliza Shlesinger. Robin predicted Snowstorm could be Aubrey Plaza or “professional roaster” Whitney Cummings.
In the comments online, the most popular guesses were Sofia Carson, Ashlee Simpson, Nikki Glaser, and Selena Gomez.
Who is the Snowstorm on The Masked Singer?
With all the clues and that recognizable voice, there’s only one option for who is under the Snowstorm mask! And it is…
Comedian Nikki Glaser!
And she honestly brought it with those vocals! Here’s how all the clues line up.
The clue that Snowstorm “can’t sit down” is an obvious nod to her career as a stand-up comedian. We see her roasting nuts, which alludes to her many appearances on Comedy Central Roasts. Snowstorm mentioned that she started working when she was 18 and saw herself on-screen two years later. This perfectly lines up with Nikki, who started performing stand-up at 18 and had her first TV appearance on Last Comic Standing when she was 20.
Snowstorm talked about how she is in a “male-dominated industry” and that is definitely true of comedy. The “SPEED DATING” sign is referencing her roles as host of Blind Date and FBoy Island. Though she mentioned “Pitch Perfect” in her clues, it’s actually pointing to her TV special called “Perfect.” Tricky tricky! We also saw a “Welcome” sign, which is a reference to her E! reality show, Welcome Home Nikki Glaser.
Lastly, Snowstorm has shared the stage with Row Lowe and Dr. Ken. Nikki was one of the roasts at the Roast of Rob Lowe, and has also appeared on his podcast, Literally! with Rob Lowe. And Nikki shared the stage with Ken Jeong at the Roast of Alec Baldwin!
