Who is Lemur in The Masked Singer US? We now know. 

Lemur, competing in Group B of The Masked Singer US season 7, was unfortunately the first contestant from the group to be eliminated and have their identity revealed. 

Here's who was underneath the mask as Lemur...

Who was Lemur in The Masked Singer US?

Supermodel Christine Brinkley was revealed to be Lemur after she was the first contestant from Group B of The Masked Singer season 7 to be eliminated. In addition to her modeling career, Brinkley is most known for her role as the woman in the Ferrari in National Lampoon's Vacation, but she has also appeared on TV shows like Ugly Betty, Parks & Recreation and The Goldbergs.

Ken Jeong correctly guessed that Brinkley was Lemur, while the other panelists thought she was Goldie Hawn (Nicole Scherzinger), Pamela Anderson (Jenny McCarthy) or Melanie Griffith (Robin Thicke).

Who is Lemur in The Masked Singer US? Song picks...

Lemur's one and only performance on The Masked Singer was "I Feel the Earth Move" by Carole King.

Apparently, this wasn't her first choice. According to The Wrap, Brinkley said that she was set to perform "Dream a Little Dream," but the producers changed it the morning of her performance. Brinkley thought King's song didn't suit her vocal range as well, but she shrugged it off, saying simply, "You know, that's showbiz."

Despite the change, many fans felt that she didn't deserve to go home. 

Who is Lemur in The Masked Singer US? First clue…

Lemur's first clue is a ring light, leading fans to believe that it could be a beauty influencer or YouTube star as that's a key piece of kit used when making videos. It's a pretty vague clue but we could definitely be shining the spotlight on one of the big beauty gurus.

James Charles is a strong theory for Lemur's true identity, as he's well known in the YouTube and beauty communities for his videos and tutorials. It could also be someone like NikkieTutorials or Safiya Nygaard who are also well known in the beauty space.

It could also be a TikTok star for those who favor the short-form videos, and big beauty names in that community include skincare guru Hyram Yarbro, or MUAs like Chris Grave or Charlotte Roberts.

Who is Lemur in The Masked Singer US? Show clues...

In the "cluemercial" for Lemur on the show, we got a number of clues, including a sun pillow with sunglasses, a guitar, a magazine with Lemur riding in a red convertible and a "rolling stone," all while pushing a vegan "nocturnal skin care cream."

With Brinkley being revealed as Lemur, the big clue is the red convertible (a nod to National Lampoon's Vacation).

Who is Lemur in The Masked Singer US? Costume clues…

There doesn't appear to be many costume clues for Lemur, as this one's a little more straightforward and doesn't have any numbers, symbols, or anything that gives the game away! However, Lemur's mask does have some fancy eyelashes which could definitely point towards being the celebrity being a beauty guru, or at least having some interest in makeup.

In addition to this, there's a bit of sparkle on the costume suggesting that our hidden celebrity likes a bit of glitz and glam in their life. But so far, there are not a lot of clues to go off!

The Masked Singer US season 7 airs Wednesdays at 8 pm ET/PT on Fox.
