The hamster replaces the octopus, which was kicked out of competition at the end of Episode 1 on September 22. When he took off his mask, we saw that this eight-legged creature was an eight-time NBA All-Star. Dwight Howard. We had found out who was hiding in this costume before he sang a note and believe we did the same with the Hamster. Read on for all “The Masked Singer” spoilers, including the answer to the “Who’s Hamster” question?
We think the Hamster is Bass Lance, the aptly named bassist of NSYNC. “The Masked Singer” loves to feature boyband stars. Bass’s bandmate Joey Fatone was the bunny in season 1 and he climbed to fourth place. Since, Jesse McCartney (Dream Street) was the Turtle from Season 3 and ran into the runner-up position; Nick Carter (Backstreet Boys) was Crocodile in Season 4 and took a bite out of third place; and Nick Lachey (98 degrees) was Piglet in Season 5 and won.

At its peak at the turn of this century, NSYNC was nominated for eight Grammy Awards. As a group, this season’s contestants on “The Masked Singer” have contested for the top honors in music 85 times.
We also know that this season’s talent roster has two Super Bowl appearances among their accomplishments. It doesn’t necessarily mean they were players on the pitch. Bass and the rest of the boys in the group were part of the halftime show at Super Bowl XXXV in 2001.
We learned from the promotional trailer that the hamster knows the piglet. Bass is Nick’s Wife’s Best Friend Vanessa Lachey.
The Hamster sports rainbow jewelry, which reminds us of LGBTQ + activism. Bass made headlines in 2006 when he became gay. He was honored by the Human Rights Campaign that year and published his best-selling autobiography, “Out of Sync,” in the fall of 2007. In 2015, Bass married the actor. Michel Turchin in a first cable TV wedding.
