If you didn't watch "The Masked Singer" last week, don't worry, it's up on Hulu and Fox On Demand. To date, I have watched it 5 times, but not because it's the best show on television...hear me out...
First, the premise of the show is that 12 celebrity performers wear costumes to conceal identities while singing major hit songs. The audience votes out one performer each week and upon elimination, that person reveals their identity. The singing competition guessing game is based on Korean show of the same format called, "King of Mask Singer". I AM HOOKED.
When the show premiered last week I knew within the first 5 minutes that I would love it. I had hit rewind, replayed, and texted my best friend MULTIPLE times by the first commercial break. By the end of the show...we had done our investigative research and had so many theories.
The show feels oddly futuristic, like an episode of "Black Mirror" where the general public is somehow deciding the fate of these celebs. What did they do wrong to end up here? Or are we the ones falling for an elaborate hoax or population mind-control game show. (YES, I KNOW HOW BANANAS that sounds but have you ever watched "Black Mirror"?!). Doesn't it make you wish it were being hosted by that blue haired guy, Caesar Flickerman, from "The Hunger Games"??
Either way - enjoy the goofiness of my best friend Jessica and I pretending to be reality tv detectives via text message (below) and if you have any theories of your own, send them my way!
