Who is Elephant on ‘The Masked Singer’? Clues and Guesses

The Masked Singer‘ Season 3 is well underway. This time we have three groups of six participants, from which, three of them move forward. These nine performers ultimately try to win the contest. Currently, the show is about to witness the Group B performers getting up on stage.

One of the most anticipated performers taking the stage is Elephant. Everything about the Elephant has sparked an interest, including the severe lack of information, which has left the identity shrouded in much mystery. However, if you happen to be wondering about the clues and guesses surrounding the character, don’t worry, we have got you covered in that regard.

Elephant Clues:

The clues about Elephant have been surprisingly sparse. Until the time that the performer takes the stage, we won’t know who is behind the mask. In fact, when one of the fans asked if the Elephant is a boy or a girl, the official Instagram handle of the show replied that fans had to wait to find out.

Thus, at this juncture, all we know about the Elephant is that the character has been teased, saying “Play That Trunk-y Music”. Now, knowing ‘The Masked Singer’, there is a good chance that this is just a pun on the elephant’s trunk, but with so little clues available, fans are reading into it.

Therefore, we would not rule out this caption as a possible clue hinting at the performer’s bias towards funky music. You can check out the introduction to Elephant below.

However, as you can see, the Elephant’s costume is super sleek and has gotten all the fans talking. There is almost a futuristic feel to the outfit, and fans have even pointed out that the color scheme of orange on black might indicate something that the performer has worn before, in real-life.

Guesses About Elephant:

The most popular guess about the identity of the Elephant appears to be Will.I.Am, The Black Eyed Peas singer. This is primarily because the debut album of the pop band was ‘Elephunk’. The reference to funky music and an elephant seems too good to pass up on.

Moreover, one of the popular songs, “My Hump”, from the band actually has the lyrics “Whatcha gonna do with all that junk/All that junk inside your trunk”. It has also been pointed out that the Elephant outfit is not too different from an outfit in one of the videos of The Black Eyed Peas. In fact, you can check out a fan predicting Will.I.Am to be behind the mask, below.


While it appears most people are inclined to agree with the Will.I.Am theory and the other netizens are busy going gaga over the costume, some other guesses have been made as well, which are worth mentioning. Fans have stated that Tori Kelly could be behind the Elephant costume because she lends her voice to an elephant in ‘Sing‘. However, there have been numerous detractors, who believe that Kitty is actually Kelly.

Some theories also point to Matthew Mercer being the man behind the mask. One fan justified this, saying that the costume looks anime-like, and Mercer plays a part in an anime series, ‘Attack on Titan‘. You can check out the tweet below.


Undoubtedly, some names have been bandied about, and theories have been provided to back up the guesses. However, in the absence of clues, and even a singing voice, it is much like a shot in the dark. In the coming days, when Group B gets up on stage, it will become easier to zero in on the identity of the performer, who we now know only as Elephant.
