The Deer was one of the five mystery celebrity contestants who performed “The Masked Singer” Season 1 episode 3 titled “Five Masks No More,” which aired on Fox on January 16, 2019. In the episode, resident judges Ken Jeong, Robin Thicke, Nicole Scherzinger and Jenny McCarthy were joined by Joel McHale as a guest panelist.
In “Five Masks No More,” The Deer performed “Get Your Shine On.” The song was released in as the second single from Florida Georgia Line’s album “Here’s to the Good Times” in January 2013.
“I love all your albums, Brett Favre,” McHale jokingly told the Deer while the mystery singer stood beside host Nick Cannon waiting for the judges comments. Jeong laughed at the comment of his fellow “Community” alum.
In 1991, Favre made his NFL debut as an Atlanta Falcons player. A quarterback, he then played for the Green Bay Packers from 1992 to 2007, the New York Jets in 2008 and the Minnesota Vikings from 2009 to 2010.
Thicke told McHale that Favre “might be the best guess yet.” Thicke reminded the audience that the clues to the identity of the Deer include his wrestling background, his claim of being knocked out and his warning ravens.
But Thicke thought The Deer could be Brett Roethlisberger. For Scherzinger, the mystery contestant could be Terry Bradshaw.
Born in Shreveport, Louisiana, United States on September 2, 1948, Bradshaw is a retired National Football League player. He played as a quarterback for the Pittsburgh Steelers from 1970 to 1983.
According to The Deer, he had multiple world titles in track and field. However, he moved on to “horses.”
In the end of “Five Masks No More,” The Deer received the lowest votes so he had to unmask himself. It turned out he is indeed a retired NFL star but he was not Favre.
Here is Bradshaw giving his final performance on “The Masked Singer” following his unmasking as The Deer:
