Spoiler alert! Cyclops has been revealed! Scroll down to find out who was behind the mask!
We don't know about you, but we're gearing up for the new season of The Masked Singer and we couldn't be more stoked! While the show's concept remains the same, Season 7 will sort the contestants into three groups: The Good, The Bad, and The Cuddly.
Among the members of Team Bad is Cyclops, a green one-eyed monster willing to go above and beyond to win the singing competition. Now, superfans of the Fox original series already have some guesses as to who is beyond the 10-foot beast. Who could it be? Here's everything we know so far.
Cyclops on 'The Masked Singer' — The Clues
While there aren't a ton of clues regarding Cyclops' true identity just yet, here's what we know:
- The first official clue is a treasure map with an X that marks the spot. "Maybe it's a case of sea legs, but I think I'm finally getting the hang of this," Cyclops says as it appears on the screen.
- Cyclops also claims he's bad and "a creeper" with only "one peeper."
- Another clue was a compass pointing southeast.
- A photo of a turtle wearing a cowboy hat.
- A comic book.
In Episode 2, a Mega Clue was revealed in the form a meteorite with a placard that read, "This meteorite crashed to Earth in 1988."
Cyclops on 'The Masked Singer' — The Guesses
After viewing the treasure map, multiple people seem to think that Cyclops is Sean Astin. If you recall, Sean starred as Mikey in 1985's The Goonies, a film that centers around a group of kids who embark on an adventure after discovering an old map. Others believe it's Johnny Depp, seeing as he portrayed Captain Jack Sparrow in the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise.
Still others are convinced Cyclops could be Corey Feldman or Michael Rooker.
So, who is Cyclops on 'The Masked Singer'? The answer is… Jorge Garcia!
Not many saw it coming when Cyclops was revealed to be actor Jorge Garcia, best known for his role as Hurley on Lost. But looking back on the clues, so many of them should have tipped us off! A treasure map and a compass are clear allusions to Lost, and could also be connected to his work on Hawaii Five-0 and the upcoming film When We Were Pirates. The cowboy hat was a nod to his role in The Ridiculous 6, while the comic book was a hint that he's also a comedian.
