Has anyone else been watching this? (The U.S. version)

I'm not dropping any spoilers yet, but....

The first episode I was stymied on most of the contestants, and didn't correctly guess who the eliminated one was. Heidi and I disagree on who Monster is, and have a few candidates we kinda sorta agree on for the others. But we don't agree at all on Lion. Even moreso than on Monster. 

Episode 2, I correctly guessed the eliminated singer. Clues were too obvious, for one thing. Heidi and I think we know who the Raven and Rabbit are, and have some ideas for the others but aren't sure.

The show is great. I'm already hoping for a second season.

The funny thing is, Heidi thinks the Alien from episode 2 might be the person I think is Lion from episode 1. 

If anyone is watching and wants to share their guesses, then I'll share ours.

I'm definitely watching and enjoying the heck out of it.

I'm not sure who all the singers might be, but I'll use spoiler text my guesses though of those I suspect:


 INVISO TEXT (Click or highlight to reveal):
Peacock is Donny Osmond.  Monster is Ceelo Green.  Unicorn is Tori Spelling.  Lion is Queen Latifah.  

Rabbit is Neil Patrick Harris.  Bee is Gladys Knight.  Alien is Kylie Jenner.  Raven is Rikki Lake.  

No idea who Poodle or Deer might be.

I’ve stepped thru the looking glass again, haven’t I?

My first comment to my wife when we saw the commercial still holds: it's like they're actually making Jack Donaghy's "Tank It" lineup into real shows.

Watching the promos, I feel like I'm in an episode of BLACK MIRROR. I'm waiting for the super-dark turn.

Kevin, I agree with you on Peacock, Bee and Raven. Raven is a definite lock, and it can't be anyone else if you add all the clues up. Your choice for Rabbit and Lion don't fit some of the clues. Plus I've heard your choice for Rabbit sing. Doesn't sound anything like him.


 INVISO TEXT (Click or highlight to reveal):
Rabbit's clues point to him being in a band. His last clue, `It's gonna be me' is the name of an N*Sync song. I'm thinking Lance Bass or Joey Fatone. 

Lion is from Hollywood royalty, and there's a lot of women in her pride. Heidi thinks it could be Willow Smith (doesn't match the lot of women clue!), and I think its Rumer Willis (her mom and sisters match the clue).

Meanwhile, Heidi thinks Alien is Rumer, and I think its either Kourtney Kardashian or Kylie Jenner. Heidi thinks Unicorn is Paris Hilton, while I think you might be right about it being Tori Spelling but am not fully convinced (Unicorn could very well be Willow). Heidi thinks Monster is Bobby Brown, while I think it is T-Pain. 

We're both stumped on the rest. But I've been looking at Youtube comments, and am laughing at some of the choices. Lot of people think Deer is Terry Bradshaw and Poodle is Raven Symone. (The family clue pointing to the Huxtables from The Cosby Show, not her real family.) I don't believe either of those. And the `I'm here for your honor' clue has me stymied. I do think Poodle is going to be a `go smack yourself', though, because her singing voice sounds familiar.

I do think Deer is a current or former NFL player, though. Look at the way the mask is laced up. It looks like a football, and they pled the 5th when asked about being a football player. A boxer or MMA fighter would have said no. I thought the shower pointed to it being Terry Crews, who was an NFL player and did Old Spice commercials that mostly took place in the shower, but the other clues don't make sense. I think it is someone who either played/plays for the Colts or Broncos, or has a horse ranch.

Also, how do you do inviso-text in a box? When I attempt it, it just turns up as white text that isn't hidden well.

For some reason, I had to make a separate post to ask, because when I edited my previous post, I couldn't get the text to show up. *shrugs*

My wife finds the whole thing deeply creepy but I enjoy it. And those are some interesting guesses!

Really, isn't this "What's My Line?" with a piano, but sixty years later? Well, and with no dignity or self-respect...

If that's applicable (which I obviously think), it just needs a little cleaning up to make it watchable.

I don't watch the show and, having seen the trailers, never want to BUT I'm hard pressed to understand how someone can assume that there is "no dignity or self-respect" in the product when the person making that comment hasn't seen it either.

Listen, this is obviously a thread started by a fan.  No need to shit on it.  If you don't like it, fine.  Start a thread on that.  But don't rain on their parade by mocking it.  How hard is it not to post your negative thoughts in a thread that's obviously not geared toward you?
