Week Clue
2 "Roll up, roll up! Here I am, the Harlequin. A harlequin is a bit of a clown. And although I'm no fool, you could definitely say that I'm a bit of a joker. Would I say taking part in The Masked Singer is a laugh? Absolutely not. *laughs* The thought of walking on to the stage is honestly, quite terrifying. You might even have to push me on there! It's like doing karaoke, and that is a whole new experience for me. But here I am, I'm up for the challenge and ready to go. So bring on all the fun of the fair!"
4 "My last performance was very scary, but a lot of fun. What did I think of the panel's guesses? Absolute comedy, ha ha ha. All I can tell you, is you gotta be quick to catch this harlequin. Once upon a time, there was a harlequin, who was fascinated by stories and loved to read. She especially loved to be scared and enjoy tales of horror and gore. But it wasn't just reading books. The harlequin also liked to tell stories of her own. As her work spread all around the world, her stories were heard by many people. And they told her their own stories in return. Her stories became legends and even joined another famous story. But now is the time for beginning a new chapter of her tale. Tonight, I'm hoping for a happy ending."
5 "In my last performance, I played really nervous to get out there on that stage, but I had a lot of fun. Despite my colorful appearance, the panel still can't help seeing gray. Which means, this clown is still managing to fool them. In my last performance, it felt like I really cleaned up with some of the comments from the panel. I couldn't be happier. But it's not the first time in my life that I have cleaned up. A tidy home makes me very happy indeed. Happy home, happy mind. I love to be at home. You're more likely to catch me there then out partying. Don't get me wrong, I love a festival. You could say that they're 'lit'. That's a word I've picked up lately. Tonight, get ready to see the harlequin's true colors.
6 "In my last performance, I spun the panel on a dizzy merry-go-round. They're going to have to wait and see who this harlequin really is. They say it's a man's world. Now, I don't know about that. But I did begin my career in a man's suit. Which is maybe, not that surprising. After all, I've stood shoulder to shoulder with dignitaries. I've chatted to world leaders, they've even in all their glory, none of them were a patch on a prince I once met. It knocks me off my feet to think of all the places I've been. Tonight, I'm hoping to dazzle and delight as only a harlequin can.
7 "Each week, I've been moving on up and now I'm here in the semifinal and I couldn't be happier. The Masked Singer really has been one big fairground ride and I've loved every moment of it. I think it's important to make a good impression. Rumor has it, someone I admire very much used to do impressions of me. They do say 'imitation is a sincerest form of flattery'. And it makes me proud to inspire others. But if we're really talking about pride, it's the accomplishment of others that makes me most proud. I'm certainly not worth shy. Though I admit, I only like to work three months of the year, ha ha ha ha. Tonight, I'm going to give it my best and who knows? Maybe this harlequin will see you in the final."
