As we discuss in that video, we really should’ve known that this was Laila Ali from the get-go — the clue about her being the daughter of a legend was a big clue, as was the bee that fluttered by in the clue package. Yet, we didn’t quite get it! In retrospect, though, it feels clear that some of these clues were a little too easy for people to figure out, and you can say the same thing about Ninja last week about the Ice Cream. The show is a lot of fun, but at the same time, the producers don’t challenge themselves enough when it comes to some of the clue packages.
Just in case you didn’t know yet, the celebrities themselves are not responsible for coming up with the clue packages. Instead, that comes down to what the producers want to decide after having some conversations with the contestants. Speaking via Entertainment Weekly in a new interview, here is what Ali had to say:
I definitely thought they were too easy. I thought they were a giveaway. I don’t pick the clues, but when I heard them, I was like, “Are they trying to tell you who I am?”
Does this mean that all of the other reveals are going to be as predictable? Not necessarily, as there are some question marks when it comes to who is underneath the Leopard or Flamingo mask. We’d argue that, for now, the identity of the Black Widow is a little more obvious. With all of the information that is out there, how is this not Raven-Symone?
What did you think about the Masked Singer reveal last night?
