Week Clue
3 "What? Where am I? Oh, no. I'm late for the stage. Ah! Oh, I can't believe I overdid it last night. You'd think this was my first rodeo. I'm 'the Banana' because I'm tough on the outside but a total smoothie on the inside, and a hoot to have at parties. Am I right, ladies? How am I gonna get dressed? Doggonnit. I can't wait to peel back my layers and show I can use my voice in any environment. I just want to see you smile."
4 "I never knew how cathartic becoming 'the Banana' would be. So making it to the Group B championships is sounding more and more ap-peel-ing. I don't want to slip up. So when my team called me in for a meeting about my image, I was like, get er done! I walk in, and these guys are nervous. Like, spit it out. You don't gotta hold my hand. Finally, they say, look, we had some concerns about your shelf life. So we think you could use a rebrand. You're worthy of your own bowl, like açaí, or star in your own show on cable, like that orange. I've heard enough. 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 authentic self. Group B championships, here I come!"
5 "I'm loving performing as a banana, but last week, I had a little setback. My memory's not what it used to be, but I'm a real driven banana. Don't believe me? Ask these two lovely ladies."

(Banana Fam): "That he's such a great role model. When we were younger, Banana actually taught us how to drive by getting us go-karts. He decided to build a race track in our backyard. He dug up all the bushes himself. Anything to make us smile. He's been through a lot of heartburn in his life, but he's always been able to laugh through anything. He called me up one day and was like, guess what? I'm going to be on 'The Masked Singer', and I was like, no way. Now I get to see him in his Banana costume what we've always wanted to see him in."

9 "When I first got here, I was just a party boy looking for a good time. But after that first performance, I didn't want to take this costume off. But man, a traumatic injury from my past made me forget the lyrics in my second performance. But I rallied the next go around. Now, I can't believe I'm in the Super 9. And I'm not ready for the trip to end here. Now are you ready for a clue? You might be a kindred spirit if you've ever rocked one of these, business in the front, party in the back."
11 Banana: "Rhino and I are a couple of cowboys looking for a comeback."

Rhino: "We both got knocked on our butts in the super nine."

Banana: "Pardner, every time this banana is up against the ropes, I bounce back. Ever since a massive injury I suffered, my memory hasn't been the same. That's why I write my lyrics on my hands. I'm a scrappy banana."

Rhino: "In the past, I've put a lot of pressure on myself to succeed, and that's when I flop the hardest. With all the competition in the super nine, I tried to do too much on stage. So tonight I'm taking things nice and slow. I know Banana's a fighter, but heck, I'm a fighter, too, and I've taken on much worse in my time. One thing is clear, though."

Banana: "There's only room on this stage for one of us. Yah! Aah!"
