Season 2 of The Masked Singer is well underway and that means one thing — fans are actively trying to guess the identities of the celebrities behind each of the extravagant costumes. As more clues are revealed throughout the season, it becomes easier for fans and judges to guess the identity of the hidden celebrity. But one character who won't be making it easy is the Penguin, who has viewers at a loss for words as well as guesses.

Who is Penguin on The Masked Singer?

Prior to the Penguin's debut performance on Oct. 9, fans only have a mini clue package to help them guess the celebrity's identity. It kicked things off by saying, "I might be cold as ice, but I’m bringing the heat." It later says “I’ve already got my tux. Now I just need to get my hair done,” followed by a laugh and flashing photos of Penguin with different wild, colorful hairstyles. Penguin then ends the video with a mysterious line that says "America, can you guess who I am? Every time you think you’re getting warmer, I promise you’re actually getting colder."

One popular theory was that Cindy Lauper was beneath the Penguin suit. The "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun"singer is known for her ever-changing bold hairstyles, which would fit with one of the clues given in the video.

But a newly released clue video has fans thinking differently. In the pre-performance package, the "flightless but fearless" bird notes that they have had to "strive for their voice to be heard." She then goes on to break our hearts but saying she's always been told that she's, "not pretty enough, not smart enough, not funny enough."

After panning over a "hit list" and other stills, the Penguin says she's gong to "sing for those who dare to be different." We then see protests signs and the Penguin leaving the forest with her entourage saying she's "leading the march."

It is a truly mixed bag of clues: the Penguin could be anyone from a wronged celebrity, to an activist, to a member of the supreme court (she is dressed similarly to a judge, after all.) And the varied guesses from fans and judges prove that the Penguin's identity isn't so clear.

One thing fans agree on, however, is that the Penguin is NOT actress Raven Symone, despite what judge Robin Thicke thinks.

Thicke's theory is based on nothing more than the fact that the bird squeezed Nick Cannon's butt, which is something he thinks Symone would do. But fans weren't having his half-baked guess.

In fact, many were hoping the Penguin would lose its showdown with the Eagle just to prove Thicke wrong.

But the main reason for Twitter's collective eye roll over Thicke's guess is the fact that they thing Symone is behind the Black Widow.

It will be at least another week before the Penguin's identity is (potentially) revealed, but fans will feel pretty silly if it ends up being Symone.
