Week Clue
1 "Why did I choose to be the Prawn? Well, as you will see tonight, it doesn't take much for me to come out of my shell. I enjoy being in the public eye; here, the UK, and America. nd I admit, I'm a bit of a larry lad. But the big stage is where I feel most comfortable. Some people would say my choice of hobby is unusual, but variety is the spice of life. I'm always trying new things. What do I want to be when I grow up? It's too hard to choose. Just don't put me in a cocktail; that's so 1970s! Do I think I can win the Masked Singer? I've been an arena like this before, so I know what it takes to be crowned the winner. And no one's throwing this prawn on the barbie."
3 "My strategy for my last performance was to really make a splash. And it worked. And I love the fact that most of the panel thinked I've dated them. Have I? This lairy prawn has made a big first impression, so it's no surprise to find me at the big occasions. Although, I famously spent a lot of time around the house. I guess, that why I sometimes feel like an outsider. Entering a competition like this is a change in direction for my career. You might not know it, but we prawns enjoy a change of scenery. I like most types of music, which has come in very handy in the past. But is there music in my future? It's not over till the raw prawn's cooked. I'm in this competition for the long-haul, I know it's going to take more than time to win. Call me big-headed, but that's what I'm going to do."
5 "Being the Prawn has given me the freedom to really let go on the stage, and I love it. I might not be the most experienced singer in the competition, but I'm certainly here to make waves. As a prawn I'm not from around here, so your local customs are quite foreign to me. I have a reputation as a joker who turns his other cheek, but I'm taking The Masked Singer seriously. All you can judge me on, is my voice and tonight my music is going to be big."

("I am a fanatic for sports and I have the perfect platform to sing their praises.")

("As a child, I was on track for a career as a professional skier, but my sporting interests lie elsewhere now.")
