The world was shocked when Sara Palin was revealed to be the Bear on this season of The Masked Singer. She returned to the aftershow to speak about why she decided to do the show and how it made her feel to be up on that stage. She even gave a prediction on who she thinks is going to win, and it might not be who you think.
Palin said this was the first time she had seen a clip of her ‘Masked Singer’ reveal. She jokingly said that she was having a cold-sweat after seeing that clip. “It was so much fun being incognito,” she said. She really embraced the experience and had tons of fun with it. Her energy during her performance on the show was contagious and she even twerked on national television. This is not something anyone expected from a former vice presidential candidate. The former Governor of Alaska has been at the center of controversy for years and even made waves when she announced her divorce from her husband Todd in 2019.
Host Nick Cannon asked her what the response has been like from her friends, family and colleagues. She said that she has been working for years in politics and never had a reaction like the one she got from being on the show. It is clear that Palin had a fantastic time being a part of this fun show full of surprises. “It was so positive, it was so encouraging, I just absolutely loved it and I feel so blessed that you guys even asked me to do it,” she said.
There is no denying that Palin’s performance as the Bear was absolutely explosive. She said that she was either going to perform “Baby Got Back” or Rapper’s Delight.” Cannon questioned why Palin chose that song and she said that back in the day when she was a student-athlete, she would listen to rap songs to get her hype before sporting events. For her, this experience was “all about the mask.” She went on to say “I knew that it would be so refreshing and so freeing and kind of a walking middle finger to the haters out there in the world.” We have to say that Palin definitely achieved this and now nobody can say that she doesn’t take risks. She is finally doing what she wants to do and not caring what anybody says about her.
She said that her ‘Masked Singer’ experience is beyond the craziest thing she has ever done. It was “weird, wild, and fun” and she got to show her true personality on the show. It is a true testament to how she wants to live life vibrantly and try new things because that is what life is all about. We’re so happy that the show gave her the platform to be free.
Before her reveal as the Bear, judge Ken Jeong guessed that the Bear was Brtiney Spears or figure skater Tonya Harding. Robin Thicke guessed it was Tina Fey. The funny part is that Fey played Palin in quite a few SNL sketches. Nobody was expecting it to be Palin underneath that mask. A popular guess on Twitter was that the Bear was actually actress Tiffany Haddish. But boy, was everyone fooled!
When asked who she thought was going to win the show, she said the Turtle. She thinks he is the underdog and has exactly what it takes to win. Check out who our Talent Recap team thinks is under the masks of the final contestants.
