THE MASKED SINGER: Crocodile.

Spoiler alert...maybe?

The Masked Singer generally does an incredible job at keeping the contestants' identities a secret with a clue package that is quite difficult to decode. However, in season four, the Crocodile's clue package may have accidentally given away his identity, according to Screen Rant.

In Wednesday night's (Oct. 21) clue package, Crocodile explained that his father "didn't believe in my talent," so he gave his dad his first $100 check aiming to make him proud. For Backstreet Boys fans, that story is oddly familiar.

A clever BSB supporter named Stacey Richards took to Facebook to share a passage from Nick Carter's 2013 autobiography Facing the Music and Living to Talk About It, in which he fondly remembers the exact same memory. "As a BSB fan for almost 25 years, I knew it was Nick Carter instantly but I'll let his autobiography do the talking," she captioned the photo.

Other clues in the package seemingly confirm Carter's identity, including the number five (there are five members in BSB) and a disco ball (Carter competed on season 21 of Dancing With the Stars, on which the winners get a disco ball-shaped trophy).
