As The Masked Singer moves deeper into the competition, it’s time for Group C to join the party. This group of final five contestants performed for the first time on Week 5, after Groups A & B already had two rounds of eliminations. These new characters included Broccoli, Jellyfish, Mushroom, Squiggly Monster, and Lips. Lips went out first, leaving four new characters to guess. But fans are pretty sure they’ve got a handle on at least one of them. The question is, is Jordan Fisher The Mushroom on The Masked Singer? Hamilton fans are almost sure of it.
Before the show’s debut, the production dropped several clues that one of the upcoming 16 contestants for this year’s competition was pulled from Broadway. Moreover, those clues pointed to it being a cast member of Hamilton. Fans went wild, guessing everyone from Daveed Diggs to the great Lin-Manuel Miranda. But even though those were guesses during performances for Groups A and B, none seemed all that plausible.
That’s why the addition of Group C was a big deal to the Broadway crowd since the first two seemed to be a bust. And if the Mushroom’s performance is any indication, fans may have just found their man.

And here are the clues the show dropped about The Mushroom:
For those who don’t know Fisher’s background, he started as a Disney pop singer and actor, starring in The Secret Life of the American Teenager and Liv & Maddie. He also was in both Teen Beach Movie and Teen Beach 2 for the House of Mouse, which may explain his "rat race" remark.
But his most significant role was taking over the part of John Laurens/Philip Hamilton from Anthony Ramos in Hamilton. He played the role for a year before returning to TV for Grease: Live and Rent: Live. And he was recently in To All The Boys over on Netflix.
Fisher is also no stranger to doing reality competition shows. After his year on Broadway, he competed (and won) Dancing with the Stars Season 25, which might explain the judges’ panel image in his clues.
And, most importantly, Fisher would have time to do the series. In January of 2020, he stepped into the title role of Evan Hansen in Dear Evan Hansen. But since Broadway shut down in March, he’s been without a gig. Doing The Masked Singer to remind fans to return to Broadway when it opens would make a lot of sense.
