    1. Jesse McCartney

    Why it could be him: 1) Turtle has said that during the beginning of his career he was surrounded by "hungry newcomers" and there was a chalkboard with "Don’t Rave Ever At My School, Turtle" — both could be references to the beginning of his career in a boy band called Dream Street.

    2) The clue package also showed a map of South Korea with a special emphasis on Seoul — possibly a nod to Jesse's iconic hit "Beautiful Soul."

    Why it could be him: 1) When Turtle showed the judges the contents of his bag during Week 10, there was a luggage tag that said "Never Keep Open This Bag" — possibly referencing his time in New Kids On the Block.

    2) The clue package also showed Turtle grilling up burgers, which miiiiiiight be to establish Turtle's connection to Jenny McCarthy and her husband Donnie Wahlberg (owner of Wahlburgers and former New Kids On the Block member).

    3) Turtle also references "Step By Step," and iconic NKOTB hit.

    3. Nick or Drew Lachey

    4. Taraji P. Henson

    2) The clue package also showed Night Angel saying one thing she was "determined not to miss" was getting her diploma, and there was an astronomy quiz nearby, which the judges believe could refer to Taraji's role in Hidden Figures.

    3.) Frog gave T-Pain a friendship bracelet that said "All I Do Is Win," which might be referencing both of them winning reality shows — T-Pain won The Masked Singer and Alfonso won Dancing with the Stars.
