‘The Masked Singer’ guesses: The Raven is Ricki Lake, Rosie O’Donnell or Vicki Lawrence?

The Raven is one of the 10 contestants of “The Masked Singer” Season 1 whose identities have yet to be revealed. Hosted by Nick Cannon, the Fox reality singing competition show features Ken Jeong, Nicole Scherzinger, Robin Thicke and Jenny McCarthy as the celebrity judges.

What we have learned after the unmasking of The Hippo as Antonio Brown in episode 1 titled “Mask on Face Off” and The Pineapple as Tommy Chong in episode 2 titled “New Masks on the Block” is that the objects presented as clues should not be taken literally. The clue to The Raven’s identity is pregnancy but it may not mean that she is pregnant.

“All my life, I’ve listened to other people’s stories so now it’s my opportunity to share mine,” The Raven said before her performance. “No one talks more than me.”

“Recently, I suffered a tragic loss so doing this show gives me the opportunity to honor my beloved,” The Raven added. “Don’t cry, Baby. This one’s for you.”

Though heartfelt and sincere, The Raven’s performance of “Rainbow” by Kesha showed that she was not a trained vocalist. After the performance, she confirmed that she hosted a talk show.

Based on these clues, viewers are confident that The Raven is a talk show host who lost a loved one. Here are the common guesses:

Ricki Lake was born in Hastings-on-Hudson, New York, United States on September 21, 1968 to pharmacist Barry Lake and homemaker Jill Lake but was raised by her paternal grandmother Sylvia Lake, who died in 1978. Ricki hosted “The Ricki Lake Show” from 2012 to 2013 and in 2017, she appeared in the comedy panel game “Celebrity Juice” and starred in the mystery thriller film “Gemini.”


Rosie O’Donnell was born in Commack, New York on March 21, 1962 to Edward Joseph O’Donnell and Roseann Teresa Murtha O’Donnell. Rosie hosted “The Rosie O’Donnell Show” from 1996 to 2002 and “The View” from 2006 to 2007 and from 2014 to 2015 and was married to Michelle Rounds, who committed suicide in 2017.


Vicki Lawrence was born Victoria Ann Axelrad in Inglewood, California, USa on March 26, 1949 to Howard Axelrad and Anne Alene Loyd Axelrad. Vicki’s “Mama’s Family” co-star Ken Berry died on December 1, 2018.
