Masked Singer Shocker: The Turtle’s ‘Original’ Identity Revealed

Written by

An innocent question regarding The Masked Singer brought about a shell of a disclose during the Backstreet Boys’appearance on Tuesday’s Watch What Happens Live. Replying to a visitor

asking if he’s presently contending as the Turtle, AJ McLean replied, “Oh my God, this is still taking place? No, due to the fact that I’m below now, so I’m clearly not the turtle.” When host Andy Cohen advised McLean that The Masked Singer is “not a live program,” McLean added, “But still … Even if I was, I wouldn’t inform any individual.”

Then came the big expose, courtesy of McLean’s bandmate Nick Carter: “I have a confession. I don’t recognize if I can claim this aloud, but the Turtle was created for me. I was perhaps going to be on the show.” He validated that the costume was provided to him, however “we were active.”

So, that is hiding inside that slimy shell? The judges– off-base, customarily– seem to assume that it’s either Zac Efron, Joey McIntyre or Donnie Wahlberg. On the other hand, TVLine’s resident Masked Singer specialist Kim Roots has her eye on an additional previous teen sweetheart: Jesse McCartney. (Honestly, we can not evaluate the panel too severely for thinking Efron. At least we concur that it’s a Summerland alum.)

TVLine has connected to Fox for discuss Carter’s cases.
