The most cryptic talent show on TV returns to Fox next week and fans have already started to scour through the clues to determine which celebrities are under the masks. Could Broccoli be the first Masked Singer contender to have their identity exposed before they’re eliminated? 

The Masked Singer will finally return to screens next Wednesday, September 23 for another thrilling round of costumed competition.

Another batch of hidden celebrities will take to the stage next week to try and impress the judges or face being unmasked and sent home.

Reality show star Kandi Burruss was announced as the winner of season three, so expectations are high for this year’s group of secret performers. 

As always, the first group was introduced with a series of clue videos available to watch on YouTube, which dropped during this season’s special preview episode last week.

Group A will be put under the spotlight next Wednesday, and will include the Dragon, Giraffe, Popcorn, Snow Owls and the Sun. 

However, fans also got a glimpse at the remaining contenders, and some perceptive viewers are convinced Broccoli seems eerily familiar. 

One viewer took to Reddit to propose one of Netflix’s creepiest stars could be underneath the Broccoli mask.

Redditor chickennuggetputa proposed: “In Broccoli’s clue video he mentioned, ‘stalking him for clues’. This made me think of the Netflix show, You.”

You stars Penn Badgely as Joe Goldberg, a former bookshop manager whose obsessive tendencies are revealed when he begins stalking one of his customers, Guinevere Beck (Elizabeth Lail). 

Originally airing on Lifetime, the series achieved international success when it was picked up by Netflix, and returned for a second season at the start of 2020. 

Could Broccoli’s oblique reference to stalking imply Penn Badgely is behind the mask?

The viewer continued: “Although I’ve legit never heard of this person, never watched this show, I do know it has to do with a stalker. So I was thinking it could be Penn Badgley?”

You’s second season was well-received and considered by some as a marked improvement of the show’s first instalment.

Netflix have confirmed a third season is on the way, surely making You one of the most popular series with a stalker playing the role of protagonist. 

After Penn Badgley stepped into the limelight once again with his new role, it would make sense for Fox to go after the former Gossip Girl star to take part in this season of The Masked Singer. 

However, other fans are convinced Broccoli’s atrocious pun is simply referring to their vegetable anatomy.

One viewer replied: “You sure it’s not just a pun because he’s a stalk of broccoli?”

While another observant fan performed some forensic analysis of Broccoli’s elusive clue video.

They added: “I mean, he’s someone who I’d love to see do the show, but Broccoli’s voice sounds too deep to be Penn.”

Given viewers were shown a snippet of this season’s upcoming performances, fans have already been busy trying to match the contestant’s singing voices to potential celebrities. 

The jury is still out on whether Penn Badgley will be making a surprise appearance, but it would certainly be nice to see him up on stage after his uncanny performance on You. 

The Masked Singer continues next Wednesday on Fox.
