The Masked Singer officially returned a few weeks ago, and this season is already abuzz with famous people. Better yet, the guesses for who the top performers are are already rolling in.
While the judges, Jenny McCarthy, Robin Thicke, Ken Jeong, and Nicole Scherzinger, have all taken their guesses each episode, the internet has different thoughts.
So far this season we’ve seen four people eliminated and revealed. In Group A, Lil Wayne was the first unmasked as the Robot. Then followed by Llama, Drew Carey, and Miss Monster, Chaka Khan.

For some reason, Tony Hawk was also on this season. In the first episode introducing Group B, he was voted out and revealed. His character, the Elephant, could only make it so far.
It’s kind of crazy the celebrities that The Masked Singer is able to get, including Wayne Brady, and T-Pain, two previous winners.

We’re convinced the fun isn’t as much in the actual singing and dancing, but instead the reveals of the celebrities. That’s what always has us on the edge of our seats.
After the first episode of Group B, fans were already convinced they had learned the identity of the Taco.
In Taco’s clues, he mentions that he’s been a “comforting part” of viewers’ lives for “decades” and also included the catchphrase, “To infinity and beyond!”
The clue video also includes the appearance of VHS tapes, an anchor, and a Rubik’s cube. He’s also chased out of a restaurant by a chef while “Fly Me to the Moon” by Frank Sinatra plays in the background.
A lot of fans believe that the Taco could be either Tom Hanks, Tim Allen, Alan Arkin, John Lithgow, or Tom Bergeron. Clearly they haven’t really narrowed it down yet, but the Toy Story reference makes us believe it has to be Tim Allen or Tom Hanks.
However, Tom Bergeron could fit the clues because of his time on America’s Funniest Home Videos, he’s been a part of our childhood for decades, and the VHS tapes would make more sense.
With all the clues, Bergeron seems like the right choice for the gig. The anchor could be a call back to his previous job where he worked as an anchor for different news stations.
The Rubik’s cube could be a clue to his show Hollywood Squares.
And when he ran from the chef, it seemed like a reference to the Three Stooges who he interviewed in 2009. The only thing that doesn’t really make sense in the Toy Story reference, which Bergeron has no real connection to.
