Were you as impressed as we were when Starfish raised her voice in song for the first time on “The Masked Singer”? She wowed us with her flawless cover of the Madonna classic “Material Girl” on the March 6 episode. We’ve rewatched that performance by Starfish and her clues package. Forget those guesses by the judges that Starfish is Catherine O’Hara, Cheri Oteri or Molly Shannon. We are sure we know Starfish’s true identity. Keep reading as we have all your “The Masked Singer” spoilers, including the answer to the question, “Who is Starfish?”

We are convinced that Starfish is Kate Flannery, the veteran scene stealer from the long-running comedy series “The Office.” Don’t believe us? Besides the fact that the Starfish sounds just like her, consider how so many of the clues fit in with the life of Kate Flannery.

In her clue package Starfish reveals, “when I was just starting out I was serving steaks to the stars and rubbed elbows with the likes of Steve Martin and Whitney Houston.” Flannery has told many a funny story about her work as a waitress before she got her big break.

Like Starfish, she “got the gig of a lifetime” when she landed the role of Meredith Palmer on “The Office,” which ran for nine seasons beginning in 2005. For most of its run, it aired at 9:00 (the time we see on the clock brought out by the men in black). After it finished on NBC, the show became an even bigger hit first on Netflix and now on Peacock, racking up a whopping 50 billion minutes in streaming (again we see that number on the clock clue).

Among the visual clues are a four-leaf clover, which looks a lot like a shamrock; that’s is a shout-out to Flannery’s Irish heritage. Likewise for the sunscreen, which Flannery favors to keep her pale complexion from burning. By the way, that bottle had the letters “PA” on it, which is the post office short form for Pennsylvania, the setting for “The Office.”

We will only find out if we are right that Starfish is Kate Flannery when she is unmasked. That will happen when she loses a vote or wins the show. Do you think we are right about the true identity of Starfish? Sound off in the comments section with your best guesses.
