Could “The Masked Singer” season 6 be won by a Wildcard? The last one standing is the Caterpillar and he is a strong favorite to win the Group B semifinal on November 17. He faces off against the Banana Split duo, Mallard and Queen of Hearts.
He made his debut as a Wild Card on the October 13 episode and impressed the four judges (Ken Jeong, Jenny McCarthy, Nicole Scherzinger and Robin Thicke) enough that they opted to keep him in the competition and send Cupcake home. She was by revealed by host Nick Cannon to be legendary singer Ruth Pointer. He made it through again in episode 7 when another Wildcard, Beach Ball, was bounced and unmasked as Honey Boo Boo and Mama June.
We’d figured out who was hiding in those costumes as well as the remaining contestants (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”?
After Caterpillar performed a haunting version of “If I Were a Boy” by Beyonce on episode 5, we realized we were wrong about with our initial guess of Corey Taylor, the lead singer of the heavy metal bands Slipknot and Stone Sour. 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. Caterpillar’s performance of “It’s Gonna Be Me” by NSYNC on episode 7 confirmed our suspicions.
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.
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.
