Here are all the clues about the Russian Dolls that we have so far.

During the first clue package, it was revealed that the Russian Dolls had stepped out of the spotlight for a little while.

"I’ve been doing my own thing for quite some time," they explained on the show. "Not like in the beginning, when I was the world’s hottest toy. Those were the days. But I knew I was something more than someone to be toyed with, a puppet. And as much as they tried to put me in a box, I just didn’t fit."

Other clues featured in the clue package from Episode 1 include a sign for "Mizfitz Toyz Store," a pitcher of milk, puppet strings, boxes on a conveyor belt (with recycling logos on them), a ship wheel, a sign for "Garden State Highway," a bench with a sign that reads, “Coming to a Country Near You,” and a train.

In the following episodes, viewers got a few more clues, including baby blocks spelling out "HELP," a mobile hanging over a cradle featuring part of the solar system, a banjo, a firetruck, and a varsity jacket with the letter M on it draped in a wheelchair.

There was even a self-portrait of the Russian Doll costume in a car in an Andy Warhol style. When the portrait was revealed, the Russian Dolls said, "Well, these colors just really pop like we do."

Emphasis on pop...

In Episode 10, we got more clues, including a dime and a nickel, an ornate gold-colored belt buckle, a dove, a gold chain wrapped around a vase, a tea set, and a wok.

'The Masked Singer' fans are convinced the Russian Dolls are Hanson.

The popular theory is still that the Russian Dolls will reveal themselves to be legendary "MMMBop" boy band and brothers Hanson

Someone even pointed out that the first Cluedle-Doo clue ("A Russian doll can sometimes have 15 replicas of itself") may have been a sneaky clue about the brothers having 15 kids between the three of them.

Furthermore, a recent clue package said that the Russian Dolls' favorite meal is jelly beans. Hanson fans quickly took to the comments to point out that Dr. Pepper jelly beans are actually Hanson's favorite candy, which is an almost surefire sign of who's behind the doll costumes!

And for anyone who was confused by the fact that there were four Russian Dolls in the most recent clue package: There is a fourth Hanson brother!
