- The Masked Singer season 2 is back with a whole new batch of cast members, including the Thingamajig, the Leopard, the Flamingo, the Black Widow, and more.
- Here's what GoodHousekeeping.com has figured out about who the masked singers are based on the clues already revealed.
- Plus, scroll down for all The Masked Singer season 2 spoilers you could ever want.
For those of you just joining in on The Masked Singer fun, the singing competition series centers around a bunch of celebrities dressed in over-the-top costumes. Each Wednesday night, a handful of these disguised stars sing while judges Ken Jeong, Nicole Scherzinger, Jenny McCarthy, and Robin Thicke try to guess who they are. Every week, at least one masked singer is eliminated and must reveal their true identity. The last one standing at the end of the competition is The Masked Singer winner.
Got all of that? Now, obviously the most fun (and challenging!) part about the show is the guessing game that ensues. By the sounds of it, you're going to have to really be on your game this fall.
"The clues in season 2 are much harder for sure," The Masked Singer showrunner Izzie Pick Ibarra tells GoodHousekeeping.com. "We were gentle with the clues [in season 1] ... but we went more cryptic this time around."
To help you out, GoodHousekeeping.com has put together a list of Masked Singer season 2 guesses, clues, and spoilers based on our very thorough detective work:
Who Is the Skeleton?
The Top Guesses: Martin Short, Dana Carvey, and Paul Shaffer
The Real Identity: Paul Shaffer
The Masked Singer Revealed: Paul was David Letterman's musical director and sidekick — in other words, Paul played "second fiddle" to the talk show host and was able to "orchestrate" those around him. Also, the Late Show with David Letterman ran for exactly 4,261 episodes, which seems to correlate to the tombstone "4-2-6-1" hint.

Who Is the Eagle?
The Top Guesses: Brett Michaels, Steve Miller, and Willie Nelson
The Real Identity: Dr. Drew Pinsky
The Masked Singer Revealed: The Eagle said in their clue package that they had endured a health scare and the death of a parent. Dr. Drew lost his father in 2009 and mother in 2017, and in 2013 revealed that he had prostate cancer (he was later declared cancer free). As far as the radio station reference goes, that correlates perfectly to the fact that Dr. Drew hosted the radio show Loveline. It all makes sense now, doesn't it?

Who Is the Panda?
The Top Guesses: George Foreman, Laila Ali, and Bindi Irwin
The Real Identity: Laila Ali
The Masked Singer Revealed: In the Panda's clue package, the masked bear talked about how much of an influence her father had on her (a.k.a. Muhammad Ali). The black-and-white bear also said she was "fighting for all her dreams" and that "the competition will be no match for me" — both statements that include boxing references. But what really sealed the deal was when a bumble bee appeared in the video clip. Muhammad Ali's famous line, of course, was "fly like a butterfly, sting like a bee!"
Who Is the Egg?
The Top Guesses: JHope, Johnny Weir, and Brendon Urie
Our prediction: Johnny Weir
The Real Identity: Johnny Weir
The Masked Singer Revealed: The Egg says his mom told him to "always work hard for the first and last vowels of the alphabet." The first and last vowels of the alphabet are "A" and "U" which together make up "AU" the chemical symbol for gold. While the Olympic figure skater never won a medal at the Winter Olympics, he's definitely been "working hard" for gold all of his life. Lastly, the Egg costume could be in reference to the Faberge egg Johnny once reportedly fought over with his ex-husband, Victor Voronov. Consider this case cracked.

Who Is the Ice Cream?
The Top Guesses: Neil Patrick Harris, Justina Valentine, and Andrew Luck
Our prediction: Evan Spiegel
The Real Identity: Ninja
The Masked Singer Revealed: Ninja is one of the highest-paid streamers, which explains why the Ice Cream had lots of money in his video package. What's more, there were references made to the Ice Cream having lots of followers and "performing in front of millions." The Ice Cream's karate chop referenced Ninja's name, while the handclap dance that the background dancers performed is one of the streamer's iconic moves.

Who Is the Penguin?
The Top Guesses: Chris Colfer, Tamar Braxton, and Sia
Our prediction: Tamar Braxton
The Masked Singer Evidence Revealed: All the clues totally add up. The Penguin likes to change their hairstyles often and claims they will be "bringing the heat." Interestingly enough, Tamar's sister, Toni Braxton, named her third studio album The Heat. The Penguin's emphasis on its tux is also a huge clue that it's Tamar. The R&B singer wore a black tux on the cover of her 2013 album Love and War.

Who Is the Fox?
The Top Guesses: Jeremy Renner, Sebastian Stan, and Samuel L. Jackson
Our prediction: Jeremy Renner
The Masked Singer Evidence Revealed: The Fox hinted that they played a "superhero" in a recent show teaser. Jeremy is known for his role as Hawkeye in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Plus, he's going to be the voice of a fox in the upcoming movie, Arctic Dogs, which could explain why the actor chose to be the forest creature on the show. After all, we know that the celebrity behind the Fox personally "conjured up" parts of the costume.

Who Is the Purple Flower?
The Top Guesses: Mayim Bialk, Drew Barrymore, and Bette Midler
Our prediction: Mayim Bialik
The Masked Singer Evidence Revealed: The Flower teased that they "blossom in every field." Mayim, of course, played an important role on the TV show Blossom back in the '90s. What's more, her Big Bang Theory character, Amy Farrah-Fowler, lived in apartment 314, the same number that appeared in the Purple Flower's clue package. Seems like a match to us!

Who Is the Black Widow?
The Top Guesses: Ester Dean, Raven-Symoné, and Rebel Wilson
Our prediction: Raven-Symoné
The Masked Singer Evidence Revealed: In the Black Widow's clue package, the spider has an hour glass on its back and appears on a tarot card. This seems to correlate to Raven's character on That's So Raven, who can see into the future. The eight-legged insect also said in the clue video that they'd leave viewers "hanging by a thread until the very end." Raven was in the sitcom Hangin' With Mr. Cooper.

Who Is the Leopard?
The Top Guesses: RuPaul, Seal, Billy Porter, and Caitlyn Jenner
Our prediction: RuPaul
The Masked Singer Evidence Revealed: RuPaul is always down when it comes to reality TV, making him a good guess for the Leopard. Also, he happens to be a super-talented singer and songwriter, so there's that, too.

Who Is the Flamingo?
The Top Guesses: Adrienne Bailon Houghton, Raven-Symoné, and Katy Perry
Our prediction: Adrienne Bailon Houghton
The Masked Singer Evidence Revealed: The Flamingo has a "leg up on the competition," as does Adrienne, who appeared in Disney's musical film The Cheetah Girls. Besides that, both the Flamingo and Adrienne love mascara (Adrienne frequently shares makeup tips on her series All Things Adrienne). Oh yeah, and Adrienne is a big fan of the color pink.

Who Is the Butterfly?
The Top Guesses: Laila Ali and Michelle Williams
Our prediction: Michelle Williams
The Masked Singer Evidence Revealed: On Instagram, the show's account asked,"will the Butterfly sting like a bee in this year's competition?" which appears to reference the famous Muhammad Ali quote, "Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee." But while many think this is a sure sign that the Butterfly is the famous boxer's daughter, we think the bee reference is about fellow Destiny's Child singer Beyoncé, a.k.a. the Queen of the "Beyhive." On top of that, Michelle is from Illinois and the state insect there is the monarch butterfly. Finally, we know that the Butterfly "prays that they don't fall over." In 2004, Michelle tripped and fell on on BET's 106 & Park.

Who Is the Thingamajig?
The Top Guesses: Victor Oladipo or Wayne Brady
Our prediction: Victor Oladipo
The Masked Singer Evidence Revealed: The NBA star is 6'4 and definitely would "tower over" most of the singers in the competition. Plus, he's number 4 on the Indiana Pacers and the clue package made it clear that Thingamajig has a connection to that same number. Thingamajig also referenced his "magic case," and Victor was drafted to the Orlando Magic in 2013.

Who Is the Tree?
The Top Guesses: Candace Cameron Bure, RuPaul, and Sia
Our prediction: Paula Abdul
The Masked Singer Evidence Revealed: Just like the "Straight Up" singer, the Tree has a beauty mark on the left side of its face. What's more, Paula is often seen wearing various shades of purple, a color the Tree's costume has a lot of. Plus, Paula has a promotional reason to do The Masked Singer. She has a Las Vegas residency for her show "Forever Your Girl," which happens to be going on this fall.

Who Is the Rottweiler?
The Top Guesses: Snoop Dogg, DMX, or Pitbull
Our prediction: Robbie Williams
The Masked Singer Evidence Revealed: Robbie Williams is a HUGE dog person and even has a Rottweiler named Missy. Meanwhile, the Rottweiler's fluffy coat is similar to the one Robbie wore in a promo photo for his PR and record label websites. Beyond that, Robbie has already appeared on reality TV before (i.e. The X Factor), which gives us reason to believe he'd be totally down to do The Masked Singer.
