Yeti is not your average Masked Singer wildcard.

The mythical creature is seriously shaking up season 5 with their spot-on vocal talent and lively dance moves. Though fans at home may have already picked out their top contestants to root for this season, Yeti just made picking a favorite that much harder. So, who could this talented character be? See what names are being thrown around at the moment.

First, let's look at the clues:

  • Yeti only comes out of hiding "for a mammoth reason."

  • Yeti warns folks to "watch their step" while carrying a pile of fire wood.

  • Where Yeti comes from, too many yetis "become monsters."

  • Yeti's "secret weapon" is a "village of warrior women, who are always there to show me the way."

  • Yeti's clue package includes berries, a jelly sandwich, eggs and three cupcakes with a lit candle on each one.

  • Yeti's cannon clue was a shirt with the name "Aphrodite" on it.

Wondering what these clues could mean? Well, the judges have some initial ideas after analyzing the clue package video and hearing Yeti perform New Edition's "If It Isn't Love." Based on the Aphrodite clue, Jenny McCarthy threw out the name Ray J since he did a dating show called For the Love of Ray J. Jenny also thought the birthday candles could relate to Ray J's song "One Wish."

Meanwhile, Nicole Scherzinger thought it might be Justin Bieber. Her reasoning? The fire wood clue could relate to his song "Fire" while the desserts in the clue package could be hinting at his hit "Yummy." Finally, Ken thought it might be Taran Killam, connecting the fire wood clue to the Los Angeles city Inglewood and pointing out the fact that the SNL star was born in LA.

Of course, these are just the initial guesses. We have a lot more clue decoding to do before we can put forth a few more concrete guesses. If you have a solid guess of your own though, we'd love to hear it in the comments below.
