The Jester character is decked out in typical harlequin fashion: black, white, and red, with a three-belled jester hat.

The costume is also covered in X's, O's, and a checkered pattern for an almost dizzying effect. Read on for more info, including the clues about Jester's identity and the big reveal.

Who is Jester on 'The Masked Singer'? — The Clues

Since Jester was a later addition to the lineup, there haven't been many official clues given yet. During a sneak peek special on Sept. 12, the network revealed at least one clue per character before Season 6 even started. Jester's clue was a bouquet of 13 red roses. A promo on Sept. 9 said the Jester would "flush" out the competition.

While not a clue, TMZ revealed that the Jester landed in Group B due to a costume malfunction — allegedly, the Jester's "royal jewels" were too present in his first costume design, leading to changes that ultimately delayed his appearance on the show. Thankfully, it sounds like all has been corrected, and fans eagerly await his official clue box!
