We haven’t seen the Crocodile perform on “The Masked Singer” since he won a top six spot on November 18th. He returns to participate in the December 2 episode, “The Semi Finals – The Super Six”. Of the half-dozen celebs still chasing the Golden Mask, the crocodile has one of the loudest voices. He won his place in the semi-finals with his searing cover of “Bleeding Love” by Leona lewis.
We watched this performance over and over again, as well as his first two appearances when he nailed his cover of the Bon Jovi classic “It’s My Life” and made the Britney spears ‘Toxic’ signature tune to his. And we also reviewed the Crocodile Clues videos. Forget all those crazy guesses from the four judges (Ken jeong, Jenny mccarthy, Nicole scherzinger, Robin thicke). Read on if you want to know the name of the crocodile as we have all of the “The Masked Singer” spoilers for Season 4.

We are convinced that the crocodile is Nick carter, who became famous as one of the Backstreet Boys in the 1990s. He was supposed to be on the show last season as Turtle until his schedule got too busy; another member of the boy group, Jesse mccartney, entered the costume and reached second place.
To date, the Backstreet Boys have won nine Grammy Award nominations; the most recent of these was last year for their hit single “Don’t Go Breaking My Heart”; overall, “The Masked Singer” contestants racked up 46 submissions for the highest musical honor.
After taking a hiatus at the turn of the century, the Backstreet Boys reunited in 2010. After several world tours, they made a long stand at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino in Las Vegas. The first clue video for the crocodile took place in Sin City.
In another video of the Crocodile Clues, we see a yellow slip and a slide; at the age of nine, Nick was extra in the Johnny depp film “Edward Scissorhands” and can be seen on such a toy.

We also saw a crate of oranges (Nick was four when his family moved to Florida), number “5” (Nick is one of five siblings, all of whom are in the show biz) and a pirate flag (Nick is a pure Tampa Bay Buccaneers fan and has a tattoo of a pirate ship).
The crocodile shared with us a sad story that follows Nick’s bio. He was 10 when he won a talent show and the $ 100 first prize he handed to his father.
Another of Crocodile’s childhood clue was a dolphin-themed pinata; Nick is a passionate environmentalist who launched the Oceans Campaign in 2001 and was United Nations Special Ambassador for the Year of the Dolphin in 2007.
This shot of a disco ball could refer to Nick’s appearance on “Dancing with the Stars”; he was the season 21 runner-up.
And the Stars and Stripes flag is a tribute to Nick’s third solo album, “All American.”
We’ll only know if we’re right that the crocodile is Nick Carter when he’s unmasked. This will happen if he loses a popular vote or wins the show. Do you think we are correct in our estimate of the crocodile’s real name? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section with your best guesses.
