  • Who is Giraffe on The Masked Singer season 4? Below are the best guesses and theories based on the clues revealed.

  • At the moment, we’d say Giraffe is former NFL quarterback Peyton Manning.

By far, Giraffe is the most dapper character on season 4 of The Masked Singer. Hailing from the African savanna, this contestant is dressed in baroque fashion from the 18th century. Giraffe is the definition of class with a costume decorated in long ruffles, lace cuffs, and glasses. But who could be hiding behind such an elegant getup?

Making the most out of the initial clues, Masked Singer fans have already come up with a few strong theories about Giraffe.

Who Is Giraffe on The Masked Singer?

Let’s start off with the clues we know:

  • Giraffe wears a fancy wig with couture-inspired jewelry.

  • Giraffe has a cane, period-appropriate heels, and stockings.

  • This tall mammal is a whopping eight feet tall.

  • Giraffe “shares something in common with a powerful giant.”

  • Giraffe says, “America, trying to figure out my identity is going to be a real pain in the neck.”

  • In the first clue package, Giraffe revealed he’s “had a rollercoaster career full of ups and downs.”

  • Giraffe has music in his blood, but when he took a risk, he “became the butt of everyone’s jokes.”

  • Giraffe was also seen next to a $3 sign and driving a bumper car.

Based on these clues, here’s who Masked Singer fans believe it is:

As football fans know, Peyton Manning is the older brother of former New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning. This would explain his connection to “a powerful giant.” In addition, during his 18-year career in the NFL, Peyton experienced neck problems and had a total of four surgeries due to a herniated disc that caused him pain. What’s more, the former athlete stands at 6’5, and we’d say that’s a pretty good height to comfortably wear the eight-foot tall costume.

TV personality RuPaul was born RuPaul Andre Charles. Based off the clue that Giraffe “shares something in common with a powerful giant,” RuPaul has the same name as French professional wrestler and actor André the Giant. But if that’s not convincing enough, RuPaul is best known for being an iconic drag queen and donning elaborate costumes. The promo video also shows that Giraffe is going to bring some flair to the competition, saying, “Oh, did it just get giraffe-ty in here?” And to top it all off, RuPaul has experience dancing on stage, which ties into the contestant saying that they’re “ready to move and groove.”

If Giraffe’s outfit looks familiar, you may be thinking about the musical Hamilton and its creator Lin-Manuel Miranda. The New York native doesn’t just write award-winning Broadway productions, he also stars in them. In his 2015 historical musical, Lin-Manuel portrays Founding Father Alexander Hamilton, wearing a period-appropriate outfit strikingly similar to Giraffe’s look. Of course, Lin-Manuel also knows how “to move and groove” on stage.
