Week Clue
1 "Man, oh man, I have never in my life been as excited as I am now becoming 'the Skeleton', which, by the way, I chose because I have no fear of death and I don't overeat. I've been around the block a few times. But I'm far from dead. Throughout my life, so many doors have opened for me. And my key to success is always say yes. Just like a skeleton, I've always provided support. And I'm tired of playing second fiddle. So tonight's going to be a wild and crazy party. Because I finally get that spotlight all to myself, I'm gonna knock 'em dead. Party on, dudes."
4 "Going up against 'the Egg', I thought for sure I was going to get beaten. It would have been a shame to unmask after my first shot at being a headliner. You see, amigos, my life has been pretty great. But sometimes it feels like joint custody, and I'm the deadbeat dad who only gets the keys on the weekend. The long and short of it is that, ever since childhood, I've felt overshadowed. But then, in my career, I realized that being in the background let me be more instrumental in orchestrating those around me. Now that I've had a taste of the spotlight, I'm holding onto it for dear life, and I'm dead serious."
