THE newest episode of The Masked Singer season 3 revealed its third batch of clues for the Banana, and they all point to Bret Michaels.
The Poison frontman, 56, hasn’t been officially unmasked as the contestant yet, but the evidence is pretty convincing.
The Masked Singer clues are pointing to Bret Michaels are the celebrity underneath
In the first set of clues, Banana’s on a school bus with a couple of faceless women, possibly referencing his old reality show, Rock of Love Bus with Bret Michaels.
Also in the clip, he’s asleep on the grass with a cowboy hat next to him, with the American flag colors painted on the ground, and he mentioned rodeos, and Bret’s known for wearing cowboy hats and singing some country rock music.
A close-up was shown of a blue dog collar, and while the judges focused on the color of the item, more attention likely should’ve been paid to the product itself.
Bret used to have a pet clothing and accessories line, called Pets Rock, with PetSmart, and dog collars were included in its lineup.
He is known for wearing cowboy hats, just like in one the show’s clue packages
He’s a rocker with ties to country music and the country music scene
Banana also said, “I just wanna see you smile,” and Poison has an album titled Crack a Smile… and More!
That same word, “Smile,” was mentioned again in tonight’s clue package by one of the women in the Banana Fam.
She said: “Anything to make us smile.”
In the second batch of clues, Banana attended a meeting with his management team regarding his image, and one of them was wearing black cowboy boots, just like he often wears.
He’s in the group Poison, which referenced in the clues
The Banana is apparently his ‘fantasy’ alter-ego
The agents went on to tell him that they think he needs a “rebrand,” which is something he might’ve been told often in real life after living that rocker lifestyle.
Before they showed him ideas on the laptop, the background image was that of a snake, and those are often poisonous, like his band.
After he’d heard enough, he said: “I may be high in carbs, I may have a few bruises, but I’m still here after all these years.
“So, tonight, I’m embracing my flaws and rocking out as my fantasy self.
He’s performed three times on Masked Singer so far
Bret has a lot of similarities with the information in the clue videos
Having a few bruises could be about all of his health troubles, including car and motorcycle accidents, kidney issues and heart problems.
The carbs mention could be about Type 1 diabetics, like Bret, supposedly needing lower-carb diets to be healthier.
The newest selection of clues only makes the idea of Bret being the Banana even more likely.
He said his memory isn’t what it used to be, but he’s “a real driven Banana.”
More Banana clues are on the way
The singer had a brain hemorrhage, which is why he might’ve mentioned having memory issues.
Plus, he has a song titled Driven.
The clip then jumped over to two “lovely ladies” who are part of the Banana Fam, and Bret has two daughters.
They’re concealed and sitting behind a desk that has a jar of “jam” on it, like rocking out or all of the music jam festivals Bret’s part of or his album Jammin’ with Friends.
Bret also has two daughters, as Banana seemingly does
There was also a fake spider with a red middle, which could be poisonous like his music group.
They revealed that Banana taught them how to drive by buying them go-karts and even built them a racetrack in the backyard.
There are videos of Bret “Go Kart Jamming” online, as well as clips of him go-karting with his daughter Jorja.
The women continued: “He’s been through a lot of heartburn in his life, but he’s always been able to laugh through anything.”
Again, the Poison singer’s had heart issues and even underwent surgery to repair the problem.
To top it all off, Banana told the judges that he chose Wednesday’s song because his father died recently and they both used to love the tune.
Bret’s father, Wally Sychak, passed away last year.
If all of these clues aren’t enough to convince fans that Banana is Bret Michaels, more will be revealed in the coming episodes of The Masked Singer, which airs on Wednesdays on Fox at 8 p.m.
