Guys, you know what this means right? This is one of the few times in the history of The Masked Singer that from the season premiere, audience members and panelists alike guessed correctly who was under one of the masks. We’re breaking down some of Gronk’s biggest giveaways and put us on the right track.
For one, his first-ever clue package included the words “Four score and seven years ago,” which is a Gettysburg address reference tied to Boston (where the Patriots play). Four score also means 80 and, with the addition of seven score, it equates to 87—Gronk’s old jersey number. There was also a clam shucking trophy in the clue package, too, which is very New England.
In episode two, he revealed that "dancing heals my body after taking a beating." Gronkowski has been known to bust a move, most recently with the L.A. Lakers cheerleaders. White Tiger’s episode three clue package featured his college roommate dressed as a dartboard in a bar with a Route 66 sign. Gronk went to University of Arizona in Tuscon, a city that Route 66 runs through.
Another important but subtle clue was that the costume included eight bright blue stones (which match the number of rings that Gronk has from his three Super Bowl and five Pro Bowl wins).
We love when things come together purrrfectly. Sorry, we had to.
The Masked Singer returns on Wednesday, April 9, at 8 p.m. PT/ET on Fox.
