Who is the Monster? The Best Guesses So Far

T-Pain has been the hands down favorite for who viewers think is behind the Monster mask. He has had 2 grammy wins and 12 nominations. The artist "went into a cave" for a long time after he became popular for the use of auto tune. Many people didn't consider him a serious musician.

Dave Chappelle

This performer has been mentioned more than once. Chappelle walked away from "Chappelle Show" and was out of the spotlight for years. He used to have a monster-themed sketch on his show. In the clues from week one, it says he would "re-write his mix tape" which could refer to the "Best of" volumes of the Chappelle Show that has "Mixtape" in the titles. The monster has a gap in his front teeth that could be symbolic of Chapelle's distinctive tooth gap. The monster was also seen performing with the mic in his left hand, which Chappelle often did.

Jamie Foxx

Jamie could fit the bill as he is the right height and has recorded quite a but of music, thought he's known more for his acting. Foxx has run into some issues with the law in the past that earned him a six-month suspended jail sentence and two years on probation. In Episode 6 the Monster's revealing item was a headset which the monster said he's used to make his best calls. Foxx once took off a headset and walked off an ESPN broadcast when Michael Smith tried to ask him about his rumored girlfriend, actress Katie Holmes.

CeeLo Green

Ceelo Green is another name the internet has put forward as the singer and producer has been in some drug charges trouble for selling ecstasy. Ecstasy is a word mentioned in the song the Monster sang in episode 1. Green was sentenced to three years probation which could be interpreted as hiding in a cave.


The Dru Hill singer was cited as a possible man behind the mask. The group produced a song called "Monsta" and was known for making "Mixtapes". In the video clue, one of the fellows behind him is drinking a pepsi and Sisqo was once in a Pepsi commercial.
