The latest installment of the Fox competition series may have just kicked off but fans are already putting out their guesses for who could be hiding behind the mask. Read on to see what folks are saying about Octopus's identity.

Here’s a quick rundown of the clues we have so far:

  • Octopus is different shades of purple with a total of eight “tentacles” throughout its costume.

Originally from Long Beach, California, Clavin Broadus a.k.a Snoop Dogg first started off as a rapper in the early ‘90s. Through the years, he’s transcended into a film star, entrepreneur and pop culture icon. After he was discovered by Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg spent the first 10 years of his career dominating the rap world before he began appearing in movies. Octopus’s look is reminiscent of Snoop Dogg’s character in the 2005 action comedy flick Starsky & Hutch starring Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson. In it, he portrayed Huggy Bear, a streetwise informant. Snoop Dogg has worn similar outfits off camera at events, including a suit with a fuzzy jacket, fedora and sunglasses. In addition to these fashion moments, Snoop Dogg stands at 6’4" — tall enough to be Octopus.
