'The Masked Singer' Spoilers: Is Bobby Berk the Caterpillar? Here are the clues
Right from the get-go, the Caterpillar managed to intrigue fans with his clue package
The Caterpillar made his big debut as Group B's wildcard entry and left everybody awestruck with his riveting performance of Beyonce's 'If I Were A Boy'. Ever since then both fans and the show's judges have been trying really hard to figure out which celebrity might be hiding underneath this gigantic yellow, fuzzy costume. With three sets of feet, a toothy grin with braces and a headset around his ears, this furry little bug dropped quite a few clues to reveal his identity.
The upcoming episode of 'The Masked Singer' will feature judge Jenny McCarthy using her Take It Off Buzzer on Caterpillar as she is convinced that she knows the identity of the celebrity underneath the mask. While we will have to wait to watch who Jenny this is underneath the costume, we decided to take a stab at guessing the identity of this furry bug ourselves. After carefully analyzing all the clues and watching Caterpilla's performances, we believe that the Caterpillar might be none other than 'Queer Eye' star Bobby Berk. Read on to know why we think it's Bobby. Season 6 of 'The Masked singer' featured several top celebrities like Vivica A. Fox, Toni Braxton, Tyga, etc., so we wouldn't be surprised if Bobby pops out of the Caterpillar costume.
Clues for Caterpillar mask
Right from the get-go, the Caterpillar managed to intrigue fans with his clue package. In a brief video clip, this furry bug reveals his connection to Taylor Swift by saying, "You might not know who I am yet, but I can say a Taylor would. Especially this one," and a picture of the pop icon pops up. From there on the Caterpillar proceeds to drop several clues about his identity. The Caterpillar says that he grew up lonely and that their life has been all about metamorphosis. Then we see a hurricane on our screen. He also reveals that he left home at a young age, and went to jail. The showrunners also threw in a picture of the Great Lakes into the clues package and a clip of Caterpillar watching himself on TV. Then we see a flaming basketball, and a shot of a pentagon with "call center" written above it. Caterpillar used to be a telemarketer and would use it as an excuse to call the family members he didn't know.
Is Bobby Berk under the Caterpillar mask?
Based on all the above clues and the boy-band vibe of the performances that the Caterpillar is giving off, several fans concluded that Natasha Bedingfield was underneath the pepper costume. The biggest clue was the one referencing to Taylor Swift. Swifties may remember that Bobby alongside his 'Queer Eye' co-stars was featured on Taylor's 'You Need to Calm Down' music video. The showrunners definitely tried their best to throw us off the scent by adding the picture of Great Lakes in the clue package, but many hawk-eyed fans immediately connected it back to Bobby. The five Great Lakes may be a homage to the Fab 5 , nickname of the 'Queer Eye' cast.
Before becoming a household name as a popular interior designer, Bobby was a lead singer of several Christian rock bands which explains the boy-band vibes that Caterpillar's performances gives off. The clue about metamorphosis makes sense when you hear about Bobby's life. The designer has been pretty vocal about all the difficulties and challenges her faced growing up gay in the Bible Belt. He left his home at 15. Although we will have to wait till the unmasking to see if Bobby is indeed the Caterpillar fans however are beyond sure that it is the 'Queer Eye' star under the costume.
