Let's Break Down the Biggest Clues About The Masked Singer's Frontrunner, the Rottweiler

The Masked Singer's second season not only offers us another batch of questions regarding which celebrities are under those elaborate costumes, but gave me my own personal collection of nightmares thanks to the abs on the contestant dressed like a Rottweiler. Since when do dogs have abs?! Why are they there?! Will I ever stop thinking about them?!

While the answers to those questions will likely remain a mystery for all eternity, there's one thing we'll hopefully all figure out soon: which extremely talented man is the voice of the Rottweiler? As soon as he opened his mouth to sing "Maneater" by Hall & Oates, the audience and judges were blown away by his voice. While he teases an athletic past, I have to imagine he's a performer of some kind given how good of a singer he is.

The judges guessed Russell Wilson, Brian Littrell, Nick Lachey, JC Chavez, and Bruno Mars, but let's break down the biggest clues to see if there's another likely candidate, ahead.

Clues About the Rottweiler on The Masked Singer:

At first glance, Rottweiler appears to be a football player, since he shows off a "fantasy championship" ring and mentions that he "touched a pigskin under the Friday night lights." He also makes references to being flashy and well-groomed and mentions that "being a hungry competitor is actually how I rose to fame, it happened almost overnight." Other clues include a bouquet of blue roses, a vinyl record player with the word "live" on it, and the fact he was bitten by a Rottweiler as a kid.

Even though there are plenty of football clues, we're thinking he's not actually an athlete — he might have just played one on TV. Friday Night Lights seems a little obvious, but there's reason to believe it could be actor Scott Porter, who played Jason Street on the show. He happens to own the same pair of red and black Nike sneakers the Rottweiler was wearing in the premiere, and he starred in Madden's Longshot, doubling down on the football references. On top of all that, we know from his role on Hart of Dixie that he has a great voice.

Fans also seem to think Rottweiler could be American Idol singer Chris Daughtry given how similar their voices sound and the fact he has a massive tattoo of blue roses on his arm. Hip-hop artist Shad Moss, aka Bow Wow, is in the mix as well.
