Who is Ram in The Masked Singer US?

The Masked Singer US season 7 constantly amazes us with their fantastic costumes, but ready to storm the stage with their spectacular costume is Ram! Inspired by a Roman gladiator and complete with strong golden armor and ram horns, we can’t wait to see how they do in the competition as part of The Bad team.

Ram was unmasked on the second episode of The Masked Singer US season 7, but who was the celebrity that was revealed? SPOILERS ahead if you are not caught up with The Masked Singer US season 7.

Who is Ram in The Masked Singer US?

Sports broadcaster Joe Buck was the man behind the mask for Ram. Buck is best known for calling NFL and MLB games for Fox, though in funny coincidence (or not) the night that he was revealed on the Fox singing competition came hours after it was announced that he was moving from Fox to ESPN (opens in new tab), where he will call Monday Night Football games starting in 2022.

Both Robin Thicke and guest panelist Eric Stonestreet correctly guessed Joe Buck as the Ram in episode 2. Guesses by the other panelists included Jason Sudeikis, Jason Biggs and Kelly Slater. Previous guesses were for former NFL stars including Peyton Manning, Jim Harbaugh and Matthew Stafford.

Here's Joe Buck's interview after being unmasked:

The first clue given for Ram during the special The Masked Singer preview on February 20 was a football helmet with the number 6 on it. The easy guess is that this means Ram is a football player.

The Masked Singer has had its share of current and former NFL stars throughout its run thus far, including Antonio Brown, Terry Bradshaw, Rob Gronkowski and Mark Sanchez.

In the video ahead of Ram's performance on The Masked Singer premiere the big clues given were a sign that said "Hamlet x Macbeth," antlers, a heavily bearded man, touchdown, mentioning he's following in the footsteps of "papa Ram," putting a quarter in a piggy bank (quarterback?) and a horse.

In episode 2, the mega clue shared for Ram was an envelope that read "And the Emmy goes to," which the Ram responded to that he would add it to his collection. Kate Hudson also gave a special shoutout to Ram as part of his intro this week.

As the costume seems to be inspired by a Roman gladiator, we thought we could focus on stars who competed on the TV show American Gladiators, which aired during the 1990s. 

The competition show saw a cast of amateur athletes pit themselves against the show’s gladiators and former MMA fighter Gina Carano starred in the remake of the series in 2007 as "Crush." She was a powerful and fierce opponent, but has since pursued a career in acting since her retirement from MMA, starring in Haywire, Fast & Furious 6 and Deadpool. Would she be up for this crazy challenge and take to The Masked Singer stage?

Who is Ram in The Masked Singer US? Theories...

The judges all seem to believe that Ram is a former NFL quarterback, with them making guesses for former NFL quarterback and current Michigan Wolverines head coach Jim Harbaugh, current LA Ram quarterback Matthew Stafford and NFL legend Peyton Manning. Though Ram responded by saying that's "dead freaking wrong."

Meanwhile, fans on Twitter have thrown out guesses like NFL announcer Joe Buck, former college football player turned actor Eric Stonestreet, Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow and former NFL sack artist Michael Strahan.

Looking at all the clues, a strong possibility could be former NFL quarterback Jay Cutler, who wore No. 6 in the NFL and played for the Denver Broncos (the horse?). Other famous No. 6 players in the NFL include current LA Rams punter Johnny Hekker or Cleveland Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield.

Going off some of the other clues, the beard could point to NFL journeyman quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick, who is known for his beard and was originally drafted by the Rams. Former NFL quarterback and commentator Brian Griese could also be a contender.

A more outlandish guess of ours is Phil McGraw aka Dr. Phil. Before he became a big TV star as Dr. Phil, he was awarded a football scholarship to the University of Tulsa where he played as a linebacker for the Tulsa Golden Hurricane. Apparently, one of his games made college football history when his team lost 100-6 to the University of Houston. Could the number 6 on the helmet be a tribute to this game?

The Masked Singer US season 7 air every Wednesday on Fox at 8 pm ET/PT.
