‘The Masked Singer’ Adds Bride, Venus Fly Trap, Gopher—Early Predictions

The Masked Singer has revealed three new costumes as the Fox singing competition enters the third and final round before the semi-finals.

This season there is a new format that sees just one costume move on to compete the following week. So far there have been two 3-week-long, rounds, with Harp and the Lambs winning their respective rounds and securing their spot in the semi-finals.

The third and final three-week round will begin on Wednesday, November 9. It is dubbed the show’s “Hall of Fame Night” episode, and the winner of that round will join Harp and the Lambs in the semis.

The Masked Singer’s new episode, which was filmed earlier this year, will be extra special as the late comedian Leslie Jordan, who died two weeks ago in a car crash, will be seen joining panelists Robin Thicke, Ken Jeong, Jenny McCarthy Wahlberg and Nicole Scherzinger as a special guest, along with Community star Joel McHale.

Newsweek has everything you need to know about the three new costumes on The Masked Singer.

Bride’s clue has not yet been revealed by the show but fans were quick to give their guesses as to who could be behind the mask on The Masked Singer’s official Instagram account.

Commenting underneath a picture of Bride and show host Nick Cannon, one fan guessed rock singer Alice Cooper while another went for Dee Snider from Twisted Sister.

Back in September it was revealed on The Masked Singer’s official YouTube that Venus Fly Trap’s clue is the fly.

This led fans in the comment section to speculate whether the famous face behind the mask could be Michael J. Fox as he played Marty McFly in Back to the Future.

Others predicted it could be Jeff Goldblum, who starred in 1986 horror The Fly.

Who Is Gopher on The Masked Singer?

The Gopher can be seen dressed up in a Western-themed costume complete with denim, tassels, red leather gloves and a cowboy hat.

The first clue for the Gopher is a lasso, which some fans think means the celebrity is an actor from Apple TV+ series Ted Lasso.

Several others predicted it could be country singer Trace Adkins behind the mask.

So far on The Masked Singer Season 8, William Shatner, Montell Jordan, Chris Kirkpatrick, Eric Idle, Jeff Dunham, Daymond John and The Brady Bunch stars Mike Lookinland, Christopher Knight and Barry Williams have been unmasked.

Mario Cantone and Gloria Gaynor, Jerry Springer and Kat Graham, and Joey Lawrence and Le’Veon Bell have also been revealed as contestants.

The only characters to remain unmasked are the winners of the previous rounds; Harp, who fans think is Glee actress Amber Riley, and the Lambs, who viewers believe are “Hold On” hitmakers Wilson Phillips.

The Masked Singer airs Wednesday nights at 8 p.m. ET on Fox.
