The Masked Singer Wiki

Hammerhead is a masked celebrity on the US series The Masked Dancer.


Hammerhead is dressed up similarly to the stereotypical "surfer dude". He wears a yellow tank top with a golden chain around his neck and red shorts with golden edges. His shoes are two different colors - the left is blue with red laces and the right is red with gold laces. The mask is a hammerhead shark's head with an open mouth for the celebrity to see through.

Week Clue
1 "As a shark, I've always been killing it. I'm a workaholic. But things have never come easily to me. I made them happen. I became famous too quickly. That early fame it felt great at the time, but then it started to feel like my best moments were behind me. I had departed from who I was, and shifted into who I thought everyone wanted me to be. I realized I just wasn't happy. So now I'm revisiting evrything I missed out on by swimming away from what comes easy and straight towards everything that used to scare me. I pumped the brakes on where my life was headed. Now, moving backwards is the way I move my life fowards, staying hungry for learning, for love, and for life.
4 “The best part about this experience is being here on my own terms. And last time, I really wanted to show I could be the life of the party. But people already know that side of me. So this time, I’m going to show I’m so much more. I have layers. Years ago, when I first entered the public eye, I had one shot, one opportunity. I didn’t want to lose myself. But I sort of did. I gave up my dream of being a lawyer. I was depressed, like I was locked in a cage. Eventually, I realized that in order to succeed, I had to embrace both parts of me: my fun-loving side and my disciplined side. And this performance is a combination of both. Fear is no longer a factor for me. Though the dance steps are really hard. I finally found my purpose in my situation. To earn my spot in the Super Six, get ready to see a different side of my heart. Hammerhead out.”
5 “I can’t believe I made it to the Super Six. I might not be the best dancer, but I am loving this. I do not want to go home. In my mask, I can finally let loose, and it’s liberating. Tonight I’m doing the Paso Double. Remember, when you mess with the bull, you get the horns. Or in my case, mess with the shark, you get the teeth. And since this bull fight is BYO clue, who wants to get my back?”
