"This person, if you even notice, they use the Lion the most in the promos," he spilled."It looks like it's the most expensive costume ... so whoever is underneath there must be someone really important. [They] must be really heavy in the star power department."
Right now, we are pretty certain that Rumer Willis is the Lion on The Masked Singer. Think about it: Rumer has scored parts in all sorts of hit shows, including Dancing With the Stars, Empire, CSI:NY, and Pretty Little Liars. That sounds pretty "heavy in the star department," if you ask us.
Nick's comments aside, the clues revealed in episode one totally match her identity:
- She's 5'6."
- Some might say she's "Hollywood royalty."
- She's "stepping away from her pride" to sing.
- Her "pride" includes lots of women.
First off, Rumer is definitely "Hollywood royalty" given that her parents are Demi Moore and Bruce Willis. Apart from that, her "pride" is all female - her two sisters are Scout and Tallulah Belle. What's more, her birthday (August 16) falls under the astrological sign Leo (which is typically represented as a lion). On top of all of that, she also flaunts a huge lion tattoo on her shoulder.
Even though all of the clues match up perfectly, folks online still think it could be someone else. On Twitter many strongly believe it's a Kardashian or Carrie Underwood - both definitely fall under the categories of "Hollywood royalty" and "heavy in the star department." It's possible of course, but Carrie has been singing in the spotlight for a while now, so there doesn't appear to be a clear reason for her to "step away from her pride." As for the Kardashian guess, it's hard to say which one it could be. Considering the height though, Kylie Jenner also happens to be 5'6."
Alas, unless the roaring creature is eliminated (or wins!), Masked Singer viewers will have to keep tuning in and putting clues together to see who is correct. But in all honesty, we totally think we cracked the code on this one. Want one more solid piece of evidence? Watch the video below and compare the vocals to the Lion's rendition of "A Little Party Never Killed Nobody."
Told you so ...
