Week Clue
1 British Narrator: "Deep within the secluded tropical terrain, we find a species of bird in their natural habitat, at the top of a race track."
"Hey, who said that? Get out of here! This is my story. I'm Exotic Bird, and here's a few things about me. As you can probably tell, I'm a little competetive. I started when I was a teenager. I was lucky enough to win pretty big quickly. But it definitely wasn't easy after that. I felt attacked a lot, for losing, for my relationships, even just for being a big bird. But I'm not going to let those shamers control my life. Win or lose, I will keep flying. Okay, narrator back over to you."
British Narrator: "Lets watch now as she stretches her wings to fly free and dominate The Masked Dancer like a true warrior."
4 "Every single day I'm onstage is a good day. Last round, my confidence was overflowing. But that wasn't always the case. Right before the biggest opportunity of my life. I got really sick with a savage bird flu. I could barely breathe. There was only one person who could help me, my mama bird. She told me, "Baby, what you were born with nobody else has. That's your gift. And right now, it's up to you if you're going to share it with the world. This moment will define who you are for the rest of your life." With her support, I went out and served up something legendary. As my mama told me, these hips don't lie. Tonight, my performance matches the roller coaster ride of my life. These dance steps are so hard, pushing and pulling me in different directions. But with every beat of the song I hit, I will stand more fierce on my own. Nothing will get in my way of the Super Six."
5 "When this competition started, I was super stressed. I've been made fun of before for my dancing. But when the music began, all I thought was the rhythm. Life has really changed since I became a mama bird. But being under the mask has allowed me to rediscover my sultry side again. But now that I'm in the Super Six, this stripped back duet is going to prove to everyone, including me, that I can dance. OK, ready for your super clue? Bye, loves!"
6 Exotic Bird's Dance Partner"Oh, man, I've always been such a big fan of Exotic Bird. She's amazing. But that doesn't mean I've gone easy on her. Each performance, I've pushed her limits, and she's gone above and beyond. She has the biggest heart and is so giving. When she talks about being a mama, it's heartwarming. Every step she dances is for that baby bird. Tonight, we're putting some extra clues on stage, so keep an eye out. But also, we're dancing to a song by one of her idols, our very own Paula Abdul. It's a huge risk. But if she can pull this off, there's nothing stopping her from making it to the semifinals."
