Who is Cluedle-doo? ‘The Masked Singer’ Prediction + Clues Decoded!


Possibly one of the biggest twists on The Masked Singer season 5 has been a non-competing hidden celebrity, Cluedle-Doo! His entire presence is shrouded in mystery, to the point that we haven’t even gotten many clues about his identity. And that means we have to dig harder than ever to figure out who it is.

So who is the secret celebrity revealing clues about The Masked Singer contestants this season? Let’s take a look at Cluedle-Doo’s own clues and who could be under the mask.

Clues on The Masked Singer Season 5

Over the course of the season, Cluedle-Doo has only released a few clues about his identity. In one episode, he revealed he has a connection to a past contestant, the Gremlin. The Gremlin was revealed to be Mickey Rourke. He also had a strong connection to someone remaining on the show as of last week, which included the Piglet, Robopine, Chameleon, Black Swan, Russian Dolls, and Yeti.

Through The Masked Singer podcast, we’ve learned that this person has never been on The Masked Singer before, either as a contestant or as a panelist. And finally, in a social exclusive clue, he said “You’ve seen me in the kitchen, now solve my identity like you solve a jigsaw puzzle. Even Ken Jeong should figure me out.”

Popular Guesses for The Masked Singer Cluedle-Doo

Donnie Wahlberg!

There’s always been talk of him being on the show, because of his marriage to panelist Jenny McCarthy-Wahlberg, so this just makes perfect sense. It’s a way to have him on without having Jenny ruin it by recognizing his voice right away! Now we’ll go through the clues that led us to Donnie Wahlberg.

First, Wahlberg does have a connection to the Gremlin, Mickey Rourke. They starred in the movie Bullet together, which was one of Wahlberg’s first film appearances. He was also in the movie Annapolis with Tyrese Gibson, who was just revealed to be the Robopine. Wahlberg has never been on The Masked Singer stage before, so that clue checks out. Even calling out Ken Jeong makes sense because they were in the movie Zookeeper together! His “in the kitchen” clue is a nod to the Wahlburgers restaurant chain and the “jigsaw puzzle” clue points to his role in the Saw franchise.


Do you agree with our prediction? Or are there any clues we missed? Watch The Masked Singer on Wednesday nights for more clues and don’t forget to tune in to our YouTube channel for full episode recaps and new reveals each week!
