tout - masculine singular

tous - masculine plural

tout le monde - everybody (you would think it's tous but it's masculine singular so just tout) :)

Note that "everybody" is also singular in English: it's "everybody/everyone is OK", not "everybody/everyone are OK", so tout actually makes more sense coming from English than tous.
