Episode 2 Clues
In “New Masks on the Block,” the new set of singers are the Alien, the Bee, the Pineapple, the Poodle, the Rabbit and the Raven. The Rabbit, the Pineapple and the Alien are male while the Raven, the Bee and the Poodle are female.
The clues for the Rabbit are a camera or photography and lacrosse gloves. Among the early guesses are Cole Sprouse and Jake Gyllenhaal.
Wearing a Hawaiian outfit, the Pineapple has a parrot on his shoulder as he flexes, showcases his abs, dances Hawaiian and speaks or sings into the microphone and is associated to a Hawaiian girl playing the ukelele. Fans believe that he could be Bruno Mars, Dwayne Johnson, Michael “The Situation” Sorrentino or Adam Sandler
With a platinum record, the Alien is believed to be a professional singer. Her costume makes her look like the titular character in the Nickelodeon animated series “Invader Zim.”
Predominantly black, the Raven is either pregnant or involved in pregnancy controversy. Many fans hope that she is either Cardi B or Carrie Underwood.
The identity of the Bee has something to do with tennis balls. Among the early guesses are Serena Williams, Lorde and Nicki Minaj.
Pretty is pink, the Poodle is said to be always fierce and “fur-ocious.” One clue shows her answering the telephone so some fans guess that she could be Carly Rae Jepsen although that could be pretty obvious, which is unlikely to be what the people behind the show want.
