Baby Alien on The Masked Singer has been one of the most challenging celebrities to guess, but we think we know who is under that mask.
This season of The Masked Singer has thrown fans a few curveballs in its many attempts to make guessing the identities of each singing celebrity even more challenging. Few are more difficult to guess than Baby Alien, and yet we think we’ve got the answer.
Arguably the best part of The Masked Singer is guessing the identities of the celebrities hiding behind the glamourous masks. The show goes out of its way to protect the anonymity of its singers.

While many of the clues fit either Freddie Prinze Jr or Jason Segel, the Broadway clue as a child seemed significant and fits well with Riegel, who did two national tours of Les Miserables as a child. While there is no evidence that he…
