Week Clue
0 (Super Sneak Peek) If you want to know how I instantly appeared, here’s the prescription number to my identity [31118].
2 "'Sssup, friends? It took a chain of miraculous events to get here, starting when I was young. Mischievous and devious, a troublemaking sneakiling. I was slithering furiously down a path towards destruction, but my Pops saved me, buying me a one-way ticket away from the wrong crowd and onto a path towards success... lighting a fire inside me to aspire to new heights. I didn't want to cause pain, but heal pain, and I hope to lift everyone's spirits tonight. All right!"
4 "Singing as the Serpent has been like a childhood dream come true for me. You see, I've taken an unorthodox path to fame. Starting out, I could barely make rent. To get by, I sold clothes, I did manual labor. I had patience, but all I heard from the gatekeepers was-"
Gatekeeper 1: "No!"
Gatekeeper 2: "No!"
Gatekeeper 3: "No!"
"Nooooo! But I stayed driven, and finally broke through. In a way, those initial failures were my gateway to The Masked Singer. The foundation of hard work I've built over the years is finally paying off, and I never want this dream to end."
8 "This whole experience has been so surreal. But it's going by too fast! I'm not ready to go back to the real world yet. No amount of practice could prepare me for this challenge. it's so far from where I was just a few years ago. Just ask my college roommate."
(Serpent's College Roommate): "When I met Serpent, we were both dirt poor. We got a cheap apartment together so we could chase our crazy dreams. He suffered through a million setbacks, but I remember the day when suddenly, everything changed. It was like God finally flipped the light switch. Serpent wasn't looking for fame; fame found him. I was thrilled that he finally received the love and attention he truly deserves. But Serpent, a 'pizza' advice from someone who knows you well: you don't sing as well when you're stressed, so take a breath, calm your nerves, and imagine yourself in the Super 6."
