While The Masked Singer has rarely been accused of giving unfair or difficult clues, there have been a few over the past few seasons that were a real challenge to figure out. For anyone who may have wondered how the clues presented in the clue packages and on stage have come to be, Season 3's Turtle, Jesse McCartney, has pulled back the curtain on what's happening behind the scenes.
McCartney, who was the runner-up of Season 3 of The Masked Singer, admitted some of the clues about his character even confused him. That's due to the fact he only played a part inn the process, which McCartney explained in depth during an interview with EW:
The contestants are interviewed week to week during filming and occasionally targeted with questions about very specific parts of their lives. As Jesse McCartney said, the questions or clues constructed weren't always connected to his public career, perhaps as a way of trying to find clues or factoids that wouldn't be as easily searchable on the internet. Producers then take all those answers from questions and interviews with others and work it into what The Masked Singer shows as clue packages.
It's not entirely surprising the contestants aren't masterminding their clues considering they have to prepare to sing and maintain their secret identities. Having to figure out mysterious clues would be a lot, so it's probably for the best that the producers handle the bulk of the process.
With that said, there may have been contestants in The Masked Singer's past who wished they had more power over their clues. Season 2 contestant Laila Ali was pretty vocal about the fact she felt her clues were too easy and may have asked for more challenging clues had she been aware of them at the time. One has to wonder if there will ever be a clue difficult enough for millions of viewers with Google at their disposal, but that's a conversation for another time.
