We’re now in the game-changing fifth season of The Masked Singer! And with some unpredictable reveals also came unpredictable talent. The Piglet, despite his goofy outfit, has one of the best voices this season. He won’t be going anywhere any time soon!

But who is The Piglet? All the clues are decoded, along with our celebrity prediction, below!

Clues on The Masked Singer Season 5

The Piglet’s first clue package was themed like a reality TV dating show called “Love in the Mud.” He introduces himself with a “Part-time Lover/Full-time Ham” title. He says he hasn’t always been lucky in love. The Piglet is a bit of a “hopeless romantic.” An alarm clock at 6:00 rings in the background. He discloses that he’s “guilty of dropping the L word on a second date,” while standing next to a bench with a pink question mark bouncing on it. The Piglet says he’s “given away a few roses” and “the world saw” his heart break. He learned “some flowers have very sharp thorns.”


But that’s never stopped him from wearing his heart on his sleeve. He displays a heart tattoo with an ax on it on the forearm. It may sound crazy but he “sees a future on that stage.” A fortune cookie is on the table in front of him. He concludes his clues with “will you accept this pile of mud?”, an obvious nod to the Bachelor franchise. Cluedle-doo’s clue says The Piglet “knows how to stay cool, even in the heat.”

Popular Guesses for The Masked Singer Piglet

Judges did not expect this voice to come out of The Piglet! They’ve predicted he could be Clay Aiken, David Archuleta, Adam Lambert, Liam Hemsworth, or Charlie Puth. But online, fans are much more focused on boy bands and The Bachelor clues. They have been speculating The Piglet could be Nick or Drew Lachey, or one of the previous Bachelors, like Nick Viall, Colton Underwood, or Jed Wyatt.

Who is The Piglet on The Masked Singer?

His voice was so familiar, it was just a matter of putting the clues together to prove it. So, as any 90’s kid could probably tell you, The Piglet is…

Nick Lachey from 98 Degrees!

And the clues perfectly match too! Though all the reality TV dating show clues have made people guess contestants, Nick and his wife Vanessa host Netflix’s Love Is Blind. All the clues about being a “hopeless romantic” and about how “the world” saw his “heart back” make sense too. Nick Lachey had a show with his now ex-wife Jessica Simpson called Newlyweds.


Nick has also mentioned in interviews before that he told his wife Vanessa that he loved her on their second date. Come on; it’s too perfect! Cluedle-doo also pointed to Nick’s 98 Degrees past, saying The Piglet “knows how to stay cool, even in the heat.”
