First thing’s first, Caterpillar shared a lot about himself during his introduction and there’s plenty to unpack, including the details of his costume:

  • Caterpillar is yellow with magenta trim.

  • Caterpillar has blue eyes, bejeweled eyebrows, freckles and two teeth with braces.

  • Caterpillar has six legs and six arms, plus a headset microphone a singer would wear.

  • In the first clue package, Caterpillar is seen in a futuristic living room with flying spaceships passing by outside.

  • An old TV is flipped to the weather channel and a hurricane is seen forming on the screen.

  • Caterpillar grabs a basketball and starts running as it goes up in flames.

  • A picture frame displays an outline of the Great Lakes.

  • While answering rapid questions during the Speed Dating portion, Caterpillar revealed that he has been cheated on and he prefers texts over calls.

The new contestant also opened up that his background inspired his Masked Singer attire and offer other important information. “I chose the caterpillar costume because ultimately, my whole life has been all about metamorphosis,” he said. “Growing up, I was lonely. You know, things weren’t always great at home, and I was rebelling, so I left home at a young age.”

Caterpillar continued: “At some point, I slept in my car, was homeless and even started stealing to make ends meet. My parents used to tell me that I was gonna end up in jail and boy, were they right. I think the thing that throws me the most was all of those voices from my past telling me I’d never amount to anything. Well, I showed them. Tonight, this wildcard is here to steal your day and hope you forget all about these other singers and only have eyes for me.”

With this intel and his performance, judges got having “boy band” vibes and guessed that Caterpillar could be Backstreet Boys member AJ McLean. But do you think it could be an NBA player instead? Maybe that basketball might be a more literal clues. Tell us who these clues made you think of down below.
