  • Who is Whatchamacallit on The Masked Singer season 4? We've rounded up the internet's top guesses and theories based on the clues revealed.

  • Right now, our best guess is that Whatchamacallit is Wiz Khalifa.

Now that the first group of contestants on The Masked Singer season 4 (any guesses who the Sun is?) have sang twice, it's time for the singers of Group B to return to the stage. Arguably, the most puzzling performer of Group B is Whatchamacallit, whose lonely eye ball and faceless, hair-covered body is the stuff of nightmares.

If you're looking for clues and hints about Whatchamacallit's identity, you've come to the right place. Keep on reading for more about this bizarre and downright creepy creature.

Who is Whatchamacallit on The Masked Singer?

First, let's examine the clues:

  • The strands of hair on this costume are red, white, and blue.

  • Whatchamacallit has one eye on the left side of its head.

  • Many would say Whatchamacallit's career had a "magical start."

  • He's a "shy guy" who lets other people "take the spotlight."

  • Whatchamacallit's first clue package included oranges and orange-flavored JELL-O, a pair of khaki pants, a triangle, piece of shrimp, and Bear from season 3.

  • Whatchamacallit says that he can "dance with the stars," "surf candy bars," buzz with the bees," and "swing from the keys."

With all of this in mind, here's who could be under all those strands of hair:

Fans think that Whatchamacallit sounds just like rapper Wiz Khalifa — and the clues back up this theory. First off, the oranges and orange JELL-O could correlate to Wiz's first mixtape, which was titled Kush & Orange Juice. Many also think that the bees in the clue package were a reference to Wiz's platinum hit “Black and Yellow" and the fact that he was once Buzz Lightyear for Halloween.

Remember when Whatchamacallit said they had a "magical start" to their career? Well, it just so happens that Neil Patrick Harris loves to sing and has an unabashed love of magic. He's been known to show off his magic skills on occasion — plus, he's the former president of the members-only magic club The Magic Castle in Los Angeles. Also, Neil is a Broadway staple, starring (and singing!) in Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street, Cabaret, Company, and Hedwig and the Angry Inch.

He's one half of magic's most famous duo, Penn and Teller, so naturally people are guessing that Penn Jillette is the one inside that hair-covered costume. Who knows, maybe Penn has been hiding some golden pipes all of these years. Oh yeah, and did we mention that Penn has competed on Dancing With the Stars? This fact seems to match up well with one of Whatchamacallit's clues, if you ask us.

So there you have, those are the top three predictions for now. As the weeks progress, we'll be updating this post with more clues and guesses, so make sure to keep checking back in!
