Original source (on modern site) | Article images: [1] [2]

"The Masked Singer" saw the return of the four remaining contestants in Group B on October 13 plus the first appearance of the Wildcard contender Caterpillar. This furry fellow replaces one of the first five costumes in this group, Dalmatian. He was eliminated in their debut on September 29 and revealed to be the rapper Tyga.

The five original members of Group B still in the running for the Golden Mask are: Banana Split (a duo), Cupcake, Mallard and Queen of Hearts. We've figured out who is hiding in those costumes (scroll down for those names) and are willing to take a guess about the identity of this newest Wildcard. Keep reading for all "The Masked Singer" spoilers, including the answer to the question, "Who is Caterpillar"?

Before he sang we thought that the Caterpillar was Corey Taylor, the lead singer of the heavy metal bands Slipknot and Stone Sour. Slipknot has won one of their 10 Grammy bids to date: "Before I Forget" was Best Heavy Metal Performance of 2007. Stone Sour contended in that category three times: ""Get Inside" (2003), "Inhale" (2004), and "30/30-150" (2007). As a group, the season 6 contestants on "The Masked Singer" have reaped an astounding 85 Grammy Awards bids.

And in a sneak peek posted by "The Masked Singer" on Twitter, the Caterpillar talks of a connection to the chart-topping Taylor Swift. Could it be as simple as that her first name is his last?

After Caterpillar performed a haunting version of "If I Were a Boy" by Beyonce, we realized we were wrong about with our initial guess. We know know that the Caterpillar is Bobby Berk, who is the interior design expert on the Netflix series "Queer Eye." Before making his name as a designer, he was the lead singer in several Christian rock bands.

Among the clues we saw the five Great Lakes, a basketball and the stage of Michigan. On "Queer Eye" Bobby is one of a quintet who dole out advice who are known as the Fab 5. This is also the nickname of a fabled University of Michigan basketball team.

We also saw a shot of a hurricane; Hurricane Bob was one of the deadliest of the 1991 season.

Bobby has shared in  two Emmy nominations with the rest of the "Queer Eye" cast; this season's contestants on "The Masked Singer" have reaped a dozen bids for TV's highest honor.

In 2019, Bobby appeared in the Taylor Swift video for "You Need To Calm Down."

The Caterpillar confesses that, just like his namesake insect, his life has been one of metamorphosis. Bobby has been candid about the difficulties of growing up gay in the Bible Belt; he left home at 15 and, just like the Caterpillar, lived out of his car for a time.

Bobby accounts for one of the 32 marriages of this season's contestants.


Group A: Bull | Hamster | Pepper | Skunk

Group B: Banana Split | Caterpillar | Cupcake | Mallard | Queen of Hearts

We won't know for sure if the Caterpillar is Corey Taylor until he is unmasked. That will happen when he loses an audience vote or wins the show. Do you think we are right about the true identity of the Caterpillar? Sound off in the comments section with your best guesses.
