In his VT Blob mentioned that fact that he has got four eyes, perhaps hinting that the person behind the mask could wear glasses.

But fans have taken the clue one step further and think it refers to a character Lenny used to play on TV called Trevor McDoughnut.

The character, who wore huge glasses, was a parody of news reader Trevor McDonald...

While fans might be convinced they're right only time will tell who is really hiding behind the Blob costume.
