The Man of Mystery whose real name is Jeff Alan, was a comedy escape artist act from Season 12 of America's Got Talent. It was eliminated in the audition round.

Background

Audition

The Man of Mystery's audition in Episode 1201 consisted of having host Tyra Banks and Howie Mandel act as assistants locking up his wrists and tying him up. After the two assistants helped him into a red bag, he tried to escape. When he took too long, Howie, Mel B, Heidi Klum, and Simon Cowell all buzzed the act. He eventually emerged, however, unchained and wearing a dress. Simon and Mel both took back their buzzers. Although Mel and Simon voted "Yes," Howie and Heidi voted "No," eliminating The Man of Mystery from the competition.

Trivia

  • The Man of Mystery was the first televised reject of Season 12.
  • The Man of Mystery is the only act since the addition of 4 judges in Season 8 to get 4Xs and still receive 2 “Yes” votes regardless.
