Week Clue
1 "Well, Hello there, it's me, Mushroom. Welcome to my woodland. As a mushroom I'm quite mellow and care-free, but I have been known to sprout in the more serious part of the forest, from time to time.Did you know that Mushrooms help control life in the woods. They can help things decay and bring new life. Which is just like me. I like to start new things and try new lives. In fact, when Mushrooms pop their heads above the ground, they can take many forms and as they grow, they might want to be any number of things. I know what you're thinking, this all sounds very serious, so I'll let you in on a little secret. I'm actually a real fungi."
2 "Last time, the panel tried to get to the root of who I am, but their guesses were criminal. They'll need to get up much earlier and dig a bit deeper if they want to catch me out. There's very few places on earth that you won't find mushrooms, and I've been very lucky to be able to leave my forest and plant myself in the woods of exciting places, far from home. I must say, it really is nice to be a part of the action and I've seen a lot of places, honestly, I could never have imagined it all. But I tried to take it all in my stride, as you never know when it could be cut short. Tonight, I'm cutting down roots to give you a song."
4 “Last time, I lived out my fairytale and took the panel back to school, but they’ll need to study a lot harder if they want to work out who I am before the school bell rings. Let me present to you, my forest. Living here means I get to watch the seasons pass by. For milennia, each mushroom has been part of an underground biological world that helps to pass information through the forest. It’s like natural learning, ain’t that amazing? And I’ve always been interested in learning and growing from my roots. And it’s from those roots that my abilities sprouted. Soaking up and communicating knowledge is something I’m extremely passionate about. I guess you could say it’s in my nature. Tonight, I’m gonna get a little bit gnarly.”
5 "Last time, I drove the panel insane as they struggled to dig up any guesses that were close to who I really am, but are any of them me? Can't tell yet. We're more than halfway into this competition, and while you might think that odor is the sweet smell of success, it's actually... 'Interest' by Mushroom. Interest. It's the fragrance that asks the question, "Why are you so obsessed with me?" Interest. It's the reality of life on display. Interest. It's the all-natural olive factory experience that makes your heart beat. Interested in Interest? Just call the number on the screen."
6 "Last time, the panel thought they had me figured out to the letter. Without meaning to labor the point, mushrooms are the observers of the woodlands. We see and hear everything, and when we think it's the right time, you'll hear us speak up. I'm not afraid to use my voice to give support to the things I believe in. In fact, I think it's important that people who can, do. I once gave a speech to a quarter of a million people. It's important to stand up for what you believe in, and to protect the things you love. Do I care what people think? Honestly, I don't give a "dame". Tonight, I'm showing what you can do with the power of love."
7 “Last time when it came to names, the panel put themselves in a little mix up over who I am, but tonight the mystery of who’s hiding under Mushroom will finally be solved. They say it’s easy to forget where you come from. But making it to tonight’s final, is something I will always remember. If anything, it’s been super unexpected which is sort of like my career as a whole. You could say that success found me. While I may have been given the ‘diva’ title over the years, I certainly don’t consider myself one. Although I did keep very good company with many of the biggest in my field. I’ve had the best time and if I take home that crown tonight, I’ll keep smiling long after the mask comes off.”
