How do you tell what boss is coming up?

I was under the impression the boss coming up was supposed be a surprise for the last wave, but twice now I've had teammates say "X boss is coming up" and they were correct (NOTE: I haven't had a teammate say 'X boss is coming up' and have them be wrong).

Is there a way to tell which boss is coming up? I looked over the UI yesterday after a teammate called it out, but I couldn't see where it mentioned the boss' name.

They use a console command that shows which boss is coming. (Usually its determined which boss it will be somewhere inn the last few waves)

I really do find it annoying when someone spoils which boss it will be, as if global boss health bar wasn't enough to ruin the whole atmosphere of the battle, now everyone knows how to prepare to kick the bosses ass faster.

The boss is indeed supposed to be randomly selected and a suprise to the players.
