Is Uri Sasson the falafel in “The Singer in a Mask”?


This week in “The Singer in the Mask” we saw quite a few excellent performances, but if we have to pick a brother who moved us (and also made us hungry) it is undoubtedly the performance of the falafel for “Cold Little Heart” by Michael Kiwanuka.

But with all due respect to the falafel’s touching singing (and there is respect), our croaking stomach was mostly concentrated on the hints and guesses of the expert panel. The falafel’s negative answer to the question of whether it kissed Michal Ansky took down from the betting table quite a few names we thought of, including Lior Miller, Michael Lewis and Dudi Belser.

Still, after hearing the expert panel bets we decided to go this time with Shahar Hasson, who guessed that it was none other than the Olympic medalist, Uri Sasson. True, he vehemently denied in his story any connection to the affair, but there are quite a few clues that made us suspect that the senior judoka is the one hiding under the falafel costume? Here are all the reasons.

The third hint:


Extra time usually connects to the world of football which managed to confuse us a bit, but the hint also has a connection to the world of judo. 4 minutes is the length of a competitive judo fight, but what does that have to do with the number 90? At the Rio Olympics where he won a bronze medal, Sasson lost in the semi-finals to Frenchman Teddy Reiner in the last second of the fight or as it is commonly said in sports – right in the 90th minute. sophisticated? Maybe, but we’ve learned many times that not always the clues are necessarily what they look like.

“I fought tooth and nail to get back when no one promised me I would succeed”

In the break after the Rio Olympics, Uri Sasson was injured in a basketball game, underwent surgery that disabled him for a long time and caused quite a few people to doubt his ability to return to the front of the mat. After returning to competition, he was injured again during a 2018 Grand Slam fight, forced to retire from the competition and give up the bronze medal fight. The same injury caused quite a few people to question Sasson’s ability to recover.

“Everyone praised my career, but I knew it was to be or to stop”

And despite the uncomplicated injuries, Sasson will show everyone that the obituaries came too soon and that he is made of the right material. Judoka is back as a big man, winning gold medals at the 2019 Budapest Grand Prix and the 2020 Tel Aviv Grand Prix and proving that he is a true champion and that his career is far from over.

The second hint:

Rorschach ink stain test

For those unfamiliar with the test invented by the Swiss psychiatrist, this is a projection test designed for a psychological assessment of a person’s personality and mental and emotional characteristics and functions. So how does this relate to Sasson? Between winning one medal and another, the Olympic athlete also found time to enroll in psychology at the IDC Herzliya.

Around the world in eighty days

In the second allusion to falafel, Jules Verne’s classic book, “Around the World in Eighty Days,” was presented that immediately made us think in the direction of someone who flew a lot. As an athlete, Sasson competes in competitions around the world so that at least in our opinion, there is definitely a connection.

The cards

We don’t like to pick ourselves up, but the truth is that in the case of analyzing this hint, we totally played it. In the second hint, different cards were presented to Falafel – 9 kings, 7 queens and 11 princes. But what is the connection between cards and the Olympic medalist? Please note: Uri Sasson has 9 gold medals, 7 silver medals and 11 bronze medals, which of course works out for us with the cards shown.

First hint:

“I was a good boy Jerusalem”

Beyond the modest image that is so closely identified with Sasson there is a connection to the Holy City. The Olympic medalist was born in 1990 in our capital city.

The cup of coffee

In 2013, a few years before winning the Rio Olympics, Uri participated with his brother, Alon Sasson, in an advertisement for instant coffee.

The falafel costume

Maybe it’s just us, but in our eyes the costume itself can be a hint. Falafel is our national dish, a source of pride and who better to step under a costume than Sasson, who represented us with dignity and pride on the biggest stage of world sports.


Still, there are some clues we could not decipher such as the DJ position or the connection to Galit Gutman, Bar Sommer and Esti Ginzburg, which made us doubt our guess a bit. So if you have any idea what is behind the clues you are totally welcome to share us here in the comments and even if you have a more intelligent guess than ours you are totally welcome to share. In the meantime, we’ll try to deal with our craving for falafel, at least until the next episode.
