The Masked Singer’s Super 9: Who Is Banana? Identity Confirmed

0

The Masked Singer is down to its final 8 performers and among them is Banana who let everyone know despite many guesses to the contrary that he is not a comedian. If not some of the early comedian guesses than who is Banana?

We've known who Banana was for quite a while here at Screen Rant. Finally, everyone seems to be on board with that prediction. Banana is none other than rocker Bret Michaels. He cleared up a previous clue from week one of group B, which showed a blue-collar. The panelists and many fans took that blue-collar to represent Blue Collar Comedy Tour, which they combined with the banana being the center of the slip on a banana peel gag to mean he was a comedian. But that blue-collar was a dog collar and Michaels had a pet accessories company called Pets Rock that sold dog collars, among other things. This week Banana backed that up when he said that a blue-collar can mean more than one thing. During his second performance, Banana stumbled a bit forgetting his lines and he spoke this week of how a previous injury was responsible for that. The former Poison frontman had a brain hemorrhage years ago that was life-threatening believed to be a result of an onstage injury at the Tonys.

One of the other new clues was his super clue that if you were rocking a mullet you were likely a kindred spirit. This is a pretty easy connect as though Michaels himself wasn't known for sporting a mullet, definitely, a lot of 90's rockers and rock music fans were. One of the last big clues of the week was the group clue that all 3 of the performers from group C had been interviewed by Oprah. Michaels was interviewed via satellite by Oprah following that previously mentioned brain hemorrhage. Previous clues have pointed just as strongly to the Rock of Love star.

There have been many clues that led people to think of a country music star but these clues actually fit the 90s rocker as well. A pair of black cowboy boots shown were reminiscent of the ones he wore on The Celebrity Apprentice. They even appeared under a board room table in the clue package. The cowboy hat is also something the rocker is known for wearing, and it's not like the star doesn't have some country music connections as well. He did appear as a judge on Nashville Star and released a rock album with country influences. There have been a few Poison clues with a poisonous snake and a poisonous fish. There were posters of Banana shows like the reality shows he's done in the past.

He has made many references to his two daughters as well. The very first was when he said that his daughter helped him come up with the idea of Banana as a costume. His reference to his love of art pointed to an apparel collection he's releasing with his daughters featuring his own artwork. During the final week, his clues were given by two women labeled Banana fam. They mentioned him being a role model and a go-cart track he built in their yard to teach them to drive. It was clear the women were his daughters and a quick search of Michaels YouTube and Facebook pages will net you videos of them riding go-carts together.

Multiple mentions of his many hardships fit with all of the medical challenges the rocker has been faced with over the years. He has no shortage of tough times. Banana also mentioned losing his father recently and Michaels's father passed away this past August. Plenty of generic partying clues but even more helpful a few direct ones included two clocks with "2:13" as the time. The letters "B" and "M" are the 2nd and 13th of the alphabet and he appeared as himself on the show Revolution in, you guessed it, season 2 episode 13. I don't think many people are unconvinced that Banana is Bret Michaels at this point but if so he might be revealed soon. Banana found himself in the bottom three, but managed to stay in the competition. This week we'll see if he can slip through again.

Shang-Chi Star Reveals Favorite Tiger King Personality In Funny Video

0

Much like the rest of the world, Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings star Simu Liu has watched Netflix's docuseries Tiger King, and he's formed some opinions about the colorful cast of characters found on the show. After debuting on the streaming service back in March, Tiger King became an internet sensation as people devoured the wild and shocking story of big cat owner Joe Exotic. Tiger King's popularity can be attributed to people searching for new things to watch while self-quarantining at home due to the coronavirus pandemic, though its many twists and turns certainly have a hand in capturing viewers' attention.

Liu, best known for his role on the Canadian sitcom Kim's Convenience, was officially cast in Marvel's Shang-Chi last year. The film had begun production in Australia last month before it was shut down because of coronavirus concerns, and it has yet to resume work. Shang-Chi also saw its release date bumped as a result of the pandemic; while it was initially aiming to premiere on February 12, 2021, Disney announced on Friday Shang-Chi would be moving to May 7, 2021, a move Liu wholeheartedly accepts.

While trying to keep the good vibes going, Liu posted a Tik Tok on Twitter of him reacting to the various figures who make up the insanity of Tiger King. For the most part, Liu seems wary of Tiger King's cast (with him outright running from Jeff Lowe), but there was one person Liu seemed to enjoy more than the others: John Reinke, Joe Exotic's former manager. You can see Liu's funny video below:

Liu is far from the only celebrity to jump on the Tiger King bandwagon. Multiple actors have voiced their desire to play Exotic in a feature film, with Dwayne Johnson even saying he wanted to make a movie but couldn't because the rights aren't available. However, a limited series based on Exotic's story is in development with Kate McKinnon starring as Exotic's rival Carol Baskin.

Tiger King only has one season comprised of seven episodes so far, but many are certainly hoping for another season. Lowe recently hinted another episode would be arriving this week, but Netflix has yet to confirm such a thing is happening. Regardless, Tiger King has proven to be an excellent quarantine binge-watch. For his part, Liu's social media presence continues to be a delight, especially at a time when people are struggling to find sources of positivity. Marvel fans are certainly lucky to have him on board as their Shang-Chi.

Bachelorette: Chris Harrison Says There May Be No Hugging on Clare Crawley’s Season

0

During a recent interview, Chris Harrison discussed the way that Clare Crawley's season of The Bachelorette will function differently and how the contestants might interact with each other in a different way than previous seasons as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.

In March of this year, ABC made the announcement that Clare Crawley would be the lead of the upcoming season of The Bachelorette and they released the bios for the men competing on her season but her fame was short lived when production had to be shut down due to the coronavirus outbreak. The show was shut down the day that Clare was meant to be filming her opening night and meeting all the men, so no footage has been shot for the season and it's not clear when it'll resume. While they don't know when they'll be back up and running, Chris Harrison has revealed a little more about how the show could function post-pandemic.

In an interview with People, Harrison emphasized that whenever they shoot Clare's season, the show will be "indicative of what's happening in the world." The host says that there will be talks of the pandemic, and conversations about how contestants spent their time in quarantine, "that we're going to embrace." Harrison acknowledges that "20 years from now" when people rewatch the show, fans will wonder "What were these people doing? Why did they not hug? Why were they scared to embrace?" He continued, "That's kind of the beauty of this show, is it always embraces what's happening in the world." Harrison also acknowledged that some of the contestants may be different if and when the show is able to film, because "if you use your common sense, you have to think, 'Okay, out of all of these people, are they all going to be healthy?'" The longtime Bachelor Nation figurehead said that it's going to be "a brave new world and we're going to have to reassess everything."

While talking about Clare's season of The Bachelorette, Harrison also answered questions about Bachelor in Paradise, which would typically film after Clare's season wrapped and would air throughout the summer. For the fans who wonder if it's still happening, the host said, "All those conversations are premature because it's all about the calendar." Harrison said that before they can start having those conversations, "all we can do is sit and wait for this thing to subside," so it looks like finding love on the beaches of Mexico isn't going to be a reality for Bachelor Nation any time soon.

It should come as a surprise to no one that the timeline for filming Clare Crawley's season of The Bachelorette is still unknown considering the times we're living in. It'll be interesting to see how her season functions from contestant interaction to date choices and filming locations, as everything will have been affected by the current pandemic. Though some fans aren't thrilled about the choice to have Clare as the lead of The Bachelorette in the first place, Chris' statement definitely makes it seem as if it's a "when it happens" not an "if it happens" situation so Clare will still get her chance to be the leading lady... eventually.
