Who is the Lion? The Best Guesses So Far

Rumer Willis

The internet feels pretty strongly that this is the identity of the Lion and the evidence is pretty compelling. She 's the daughter of Bruce Willis and Demi Moore, which would qualify her as Hollywood royalty. She is also one of Bruce's five daughters — quite a female-heavy pride, we'd say. She's acted in several shows, including FOX's Empire. Her astrological symbol is Leo and she has a lion tattoo on her arm. She also grew up in Hailey, Idaho.

Kelly Rowland

The pieces seemed to pull together for viewers on Reddit this week after seeing the Lion hard at work on her wine rack. Apparently, Kelly has been heavily involved with charity renovation projects by Lowes and the Boys and Girls Club in the last year. She's a former Destiny's Child member, ticking the box for Hollywood royalty, and her pride is certainly full of women. Last summer, Kelly got a temporary Lion tattoo dedicated to Demi Lovato. In her video clue, the Lion says, "Here I am behind the mask," which could be connected to one of Rowland's albums titled "Here I am."

Kimberly Wyatt

This member of a girl band was definitely on the list of possibilities presented by the judges during week one, and Kimberly Wyatt appears to check some important boxes. She is 5 feet 6 inches tall and a former member of the Pussycat Dolls. She has also recently formed a new band called "Her Majesty and the Wolves."

Kylie Jenner

The Kardashians have been suggested for several of the masked singers, and for this one, Kylie Jenner gets thrown into the list of likely suspects. Her height checks out at 5 feet 6 inches and she definitely comes from a pride filled with women. She's been known to do some singing and actually has a pretty decent voice. She also checks the box for Hollywood royalty.
