Margaret Cho

This is probably the internet’s favorite theory right now as Margaret checks off a lot of boxes. She is from San Francisco and is a stand-up comedian. She was once a phone sex operator and is an active spokesperson for the LGBT community. Additionally, her father is a lawyer and it may be why she said she was doing this for “your honor.” She also played a paralegal in Drop Dead Diva.

Maya Rudolph

Viewers of The Masked Singer thought they heard comedian Maya Rudolph represented in the voice of the Poodle and she does come a set of musical parents. She also played the role of a judge in the TV show “The Good Place.”

Tracee Ellis Ross

Tracee is also a comedian and the daughter of Diana Ross which checks the box for the musical family. On the show Blackish, she plays a character named Rainbow.

Jillian Michaels

Jillian is no stand-up comedian but she is a part of the LGBT community and a well-known fitness guru, which might fit in with the section of the video where the Poodle is lifting weights.

As more clues and guesses about the identity of the poodle surface, we’ll continue to update this post.

Lisa Marie Presley

Presley obviously checks the box for the musical family. She does reside in San Francisco and has performed Heartbreaker with Pat Benatar at shows a number of times. 

LaToya Jackson

Jackson clearly comes from a musical family and she once had a step class exercise show. She was a judge on RuPaul’s Drag Race and is a LGBT activist.
