Masked Singer Spoilers: Hydra is Penn & Teller, The Magicians of Vegas

A big part of the appeal of “The Masked Singer” is trying to figure out which famous faces are hidden beneath those masks. Season 7 of this reality competition series promises to be its toughest yet with 16 celebrities hidden in 15 costumes. Because there are so many stars in the Golden Mask Hunt, FOX has divided them into three groups.

Group A is made up of a single competitor, the Firefly. In the first weeks of the competition, we saw the elimination of Cyclops (Jorge Garcia), McTerrier (Duff Goldman), RAM (Joe Buck) and Thingamabob (Jordan Mailata). Group B made their first appearance on March 30, and Lemur didn’t last; she was unmasked as ssuperior model Christie Brinkleyas we had planned.

We’ve reviewed the performances of the other Group B contenders and have all “The Masked Singer” spoilers, including the answer to “Who is Hydra”? In fact, do this “Who ARE Hydra” because there are two famous characters inside this costume.

TO SEE Everything you need to know about season 7 of “The Masked Singer”

We are convinced that Hydra are magicians Penn & Teller. Sure, there are three heads on Hydra, but we think this is a classic case of misdirection, a tactic that would be well known to those maestros of magic. Disagree with our best guess? Well, keep reading for our reasoning.

In their first appearance, Hydra sang a mean version of “Hey Soul Sister” from Form. We knew from the first negative note that these contestants weren’t raising their vocals in the song professionally.

Penn has a very distinctive voice, with his characteristic rasp. We’re sure that was one of the sounds we heard when Hydra spoke. And Teller doesn’t talk, just like an ATM at the bank (which you go to instead of an actual cashier); we saw a picture of one of these in the cluemerical.

There were plenty of other visual clues pointing to Penn & Teller, starting with the magic 8 ball.

The pair of water skis had the word “Miami” written on them: Penn & Teller made their television debut in the crime drama “Miami Vice.

The beach ball had a bull on it; Penn & Teller had a series on Showtime for eight seasons called “Bullshit!”

And there was a shark swimming in the background; one of their most popular TV specials, “Off the Deep End”, saw Teller struggle to escape from a straitjacket while surrounded by sharks.

We’ll only find out if we’re right that Penn and Teller are Hydra when they’re unmasked. This will happen when they lose a vote or win the show. Do you think we’re right about Hydra’s true identity? Sound off in the comments section with your best guesses.
