The deer will perform on the next episode of The Masked Singer and fans are guessing like crazy as to who the deer is. In the clues video provided by Fox, the deer is seen taped up like an athlete. In addition, the person claims he’s always liked to sing, but reveals that people around him may not agree with him.

The biggest clue? He tells the Ravens to watch out, making the judges think that he could be a football player or related to the NFL in some capacity.

There’s no doubt that he’s an athlete or has some kind of connection to the NFL. And there are tons of guesses as to who the celebrity could be. Listen to the first performance below to take a guess.


On Twitter, viewers are guessing that the deer could be Terry Bradshaw. One of the reasons is that Bradshaw played for the Pittsburgh Steelers for 13 seasons, from 1970 to 1983. The Steelers and the Ravens are division rivals.

It’s also worth noting that Terry Bradshaw does sing and he was even nominated for a Grammy for his work with the Christian gospel group The Isaacs.

Other guesses include Peyton Manning and Tim Tebow, who also have connections to the NFL and the quarterback position. As for the longevity issue revealed in the clues, Manning played 18 seasons in the NFL, five years more than Bradshaw.

Judge Joel McHale guesses that Brett Favre is behind the mask, another NFL player.

However, Favre played for 19 seasons and he played for the Atlanta Falcons, Green Bay Packers, New York Jets, and ended his 19-year-long career with the Minnesota Vikings – none of which have a direct divisional rivalry with the Ravens.

Even though the deer doesn’t sound like Terry Bradshaw during his first performance, there are many clues that match up with his achievements.

The Masked Singer airs Wednesdays at 9/8c on FOX.
