Week Clue
2 "Roll up, roll up. The circus has come to town and I am introducing to you, me. Rockhopper. Just call me the entertainer, because I am here to bring you a show. Rockhopper penguins are known for their ability to jump, so hopefully I'll bounce through this competition and dazzle you all. Tonight, I'm gonna put on the greatest show you've ever seen."
4 “In my last performance, I came to show you what I can do. I lost out to Traffic Cone. But tonight, it’s full speed ahead, and I can’t wait to reach full throttle. Now, I’ve never been one to ruffle feathers, I’m not that kind of penguin. Though don’t mistake me, I’m no stranger to giving my opinion, and I’ll gladly let you hear it. I love to talk, but I love to support, inspire and empower even more. A penguin’s habitat can be a harsh envirnment. The Arctic is a great white way, after all. So, if I can huddle and help my fellow penguins, then that’s what I’m gonna do.”
5 “When it comes to guessing who I am, the panel still have absolutely ‘snow’ idea. I might be a penguin but that doesn’t mean things are always as black and white as they may seem. So I’ll confess I’ve been another kind of feathered friend in the past, a jailbird. And while my career might have seen me behind bars, it’s funny because I started as the polar opposite. And I thank those with halos for all I’ve accomplished. Tonight I’m ready to do my thing and bring it once more.”
6 “The panel are certainly still in the dark as to who I am. I’m using every trick in the circus to keep them guessing for as long as possible. I won’t lie to you. I do enjoy a spot of retail therapy. Find me a girl who doesn’t. It’s nice to take a break from the circus. Sometimes I swap the Big Top for another squared circle. Change is good. It provides growth, and that’s always important. [LIGHTS SUDDENLY GO OUT] Did someone forget to pay the electricity? Tonight, I’m hoping to do justice with another legendary performance.”
7 "Last time, the panel kept thinking there's something about me that's familiar. But they're still fishing for a name and I won't to be making it any easier, ha ha ha ha ha. Performers, this is your 15 minute call. Show business can be a whirlwind. It's the ultimate three ring circus. So you have to develop a thick skin, but you also have to develop self love. Because you know, if you can't love yourself, how in the hell can you love somebody else? But I'm preaching to the choir, right?. Tonight, I'm going to style it out."

  • Rockhopper is the second UK contestant to participate in another season, in this case being Butterfly on America's second season.
