For S’More’s performance, he sang a soulful rendition of Niall Horan’s “Slow Hands.” In his clue package, S’More appeared in the woods, saying, “Gather round, campers, for the tale of the swashbuckling S’More. Just like this many-layered dessert forged in fire, my life has been all about blazing my own trail.”
S’More was then shown watching a rocket launch, stating, “I started out on a rocket to fame, a journey from obscurity to major heartthrob status in a matter of weeks.” Next, he was seen struggling to climb a snowy mountain, saying, “Millions cheered me on step by step, as I became a household name.” A frozen jar with a label that read, “Tips” was then shown. At the end of the scene, S’More shouted, “Whoa,” as the wind blew him back down the mountain.
Next, S’More was seen on a sailing ship in the ocean. He continued, “I traveled the lands near and far, making headlines with fellow adventurers and idols.” He then appeared on a beach, during which a wind once again blew him away, along with a beach umbrella. The Masked Singer season 10 contestant went on to say, “It was bliss,” as the camera zoomed in on a picnic basket, a Chicago deep dish pizza, and two yellow and black cans of “Masked Soda” in the sand.
After that, S’More stood next to a Christmas tree in the woods decorated with silver ornaments, saying, “And when I finished with my travels, I hung up my cape.” A gold ornament of an angel was then shown at the top of the Christmas tree. S’More added, “I thought it was the end of the road, but I was still hungry for a new journey. So that’s why I’m here to conquer the Masked Singer stage. This S’More’s gonna make you melt.”
After S’More’s performance, another clue was revealed to help figure out his identity. It was a shiny silver film reel that said, “Starring S’More.” S’More explained, “As you can tell, I’m very talented on and off stage.” This lead to Nicole to theorize that S’More might not only be a singer, but maybe an actor too.

S’More went on to say, “While I was still in high school, a huge opportunity to work with an industry legend came my way.” A television set with an M on it was then shown. S’More then looked at a picture of his father, an older S’More, saying, “But when my dad found out, he told me to turn down the gig. I made the hard decision to move out.”

He said, “Years down the road, I conquered the Broadway stage, a lifelong goal.” There was then a Masked Singer game console with a video game controller on the screen.

This has been unlike any other experience I’ve had as a performer.”
S’More then lifted a 10-pound dumbbell saying, “This costume is hot, and it’s heavy.” He was then shown riding an exercise bike as he said, “And it’s a hell of a lot of cardio. I’ve been up until two or three in the morning practicing my choreography. It’s like I’m back in boy band boot camp.” S’More then picked up and pointed to a pair of gator boots, which Robin thought might be a Florida reference. There was also a stuffed growling bear in the background of the cabin scene.

S’More’s Identity Predictions From The Masked Singer Panelists
The Masked Singer season 10 panelists offered some interesting first guesses for S’More’s identity. Nicole commented that the first thing that popped out to her was “step by step.” She pointed out that they’ve had members of boy bands such as *NSYNC, Backstreet Boys, and 98 Degrees, and now they were due for a member of the New Kids on the Block, who have a hit song called “Step By Step.” Because of this, Nicole guessed that S’More could be Joey McIntyre.
Jenny focused on S’More’s instant rise to fame, and guessed Justin Guarini, who was the runner-up to Kelly Clarkson American Idol season 1. S’More’s mustache and goatee reminded Robin of Kevin Richardson from the Backstreet Boys. On NFL Night, the panelists continued to focus on boy bands from Florida because of the oranges clue. Nicole guessed JC Chasez from *NSYNC, who originated in Orlando. Robin stuck with his guess of Kevin because Kevin was on Broadway in Chicago. He also thought the game console could refer to the Backstreet Boys’ song, “Quit Playing Games (With My Heart).” However, Ken thought that S’More could be actor Simu Liu.
During 2000s Night, Nicole guessed that S’More might be New Kids on the Block member Jordan Knight because his brother, Jonathan, is also in the group. Nicole also used the hairspray clue to guess James Marsden, who appeared in the Hairspray movie. Ken then said that he believed that S’More was Rob Thomas. However, Jenny stated that she knew her MTV and boy bands. She guessed that S’More is Ashley Parker Angel from O-Town, who starred in Hairspray on Broadway.
On Disco Night, the Masked Singer panelists offered more guesses for S’More’s identity. Robin stuck with his original guess of Kevin Richardson, while Jenny continued to think that S’More was Ashley Parker Angel. Nicole guessed that S’More could be Jordan Knight. For their final guesses, the panelists offered several boy band members’ names. Robin continued to guess Kevin Richardson, while Ken thought he was A.J. McLean. Nicole continued to theorize that he was Jordan Knight. However, Jenny correctly guessed that S’More was Ashley Parker Angel.
S’More’s Identity Is Revealed
Jenny’s guess of Ashley Parker Angel was right. He was a member of O-Town, the group that was formed on MTV’s reality television series, Making the Band. The M on the television set referred to MTV. In addition, the O in O-Town stands for Orlando, which was represented by the oranges. The gator boots really were a nod to Florida. O-Town was the first group to be signed by Clive Davis to his record label, J Records, so he was the industry legend S’More was referencing. O-Town was a huge success and appeared on TRL. They also had many concert tours in the United States and around the world.
The angel clue referred to Ashley’s last name. The pizza clue referenced his appearance in the film, Pizza Man. In addition, Ashley has appeared on Broadway in Hairspray as Link Larkin and Wicked as Fiyero Tigelaar. The cauldron clue was a nod to Wicked, while the hairspray definitely referenced the musical of the same name. Ashley’s son, Lyric Lennon Parker-Angel was born in 2005, which was the year on the tour bus when S’More was talking about him. In 2011, Ashley decided not to be part of an O-Town reunion.
As The Masked Singer season 10 contestant S’More, Ashley melted hearts with his soulful singing and smooth persona. Everyone definitely wanted s’more of S’more, but it was his turn to be unmasked. Ashley will always be remembered on The Masked Singer for his sweet performances as S’More.
