Because of Caterpillar's voice and the high notes he can reach, many comments are pointing toward Sam Smith being behind the mask. But others think that it's Brendon Urie of Panic! at the Disco since he's known for his vocal range as well.

But neither Sam nor Brendon has a public history of being in jail. Another popular guess is Bobby Berk of Queer Eye fame, who was once arrested for throwing hamburgers at restaurant staff.

Here are some other guesses fans have made:

So, who is Caterpillar on 'The Masked Singer'? The answer is...Bobby Berk!

Fans were right when they predicted that Bobby Berk would reveal himself as the Caterpillar. The clue that Taylor Swift would know who he was may have thrown off judge Jenny McCarthy Wahlberg, who used her Take It Off Buzzer to guess that the Caterpillar was Jake Gyllenhaal, but she guessed the wrong Taylor connection. Bobby appeared in Taylor's music video for "You Need to Calm Down."

You can watch the unmasking happen every Wednesday at 8 p.m. EST on Fox.
