This week, we’re diving into some of the top guesses for Rhino, who seems to be confusing both the judges and the viewers at home with his identity. So, we combed through some of the internet sleuths’ best guesses and combined them with the judges’ guesses as well as our gut feelings and landed on two possibilities: Sam Hunt and Tim McGraw. Hear us out here.
We’ll start with Hunt. The country singer actually fits a lot of the clues. First, he’s tall, fit and played college football, which matches the Rhino’s build. Not to mention, Hunt can (obviously) sing, and Rhino in our opinion has one of the best voices of this entire season. He's from Georgia, which matches one of the clues that implied he’s from the south. Hunt also loves motorcycles (the Rhino rode a motorcycle in one of his first clue packages).
As for McGraw, not only does he have the vocals, but a handful of Rhino’s clues fit as well. So much so that the judges have even thrown his name into the ring a few times. First of all, in one of the clue packages, Rhino is holding a sign that says “Faith” and while many have taken that to mean he is religious, we believe it could be referring to his wife, Faith Hill. He also stated that he hit a rough point in his life which his wife got him out of and McGraw has been open about his struggle with alcoholism. There was also a subtle clue that included a butterfly in one of his packages, and while Nicole Scherzinger pointed out that that might be a reference to a professional swimmer who swims the butterfly, the country star has a song called “Butterfly Kisses’” which totally makes sense. Looks like we’ll just have to wait and see.
The Masked Singer returns on Wednesday, April 2, at 8 p.m. PT/ET on Fox.
