Jackie O, a Spice Girl and a Glee star! All the predictions ahead of The Masked Singer Australia premiere
The fifth season of The Masked Singer Australia has been generating a whirlwind of excitement online.
Across social media platforms, chatter abounds that Jackie ‘O’ Henderson, who has been a panellist on previous seasons, is concealed beneath one of the extravagant Tim Chappel-designed costumes.
In addition to this speculation, there are whispers that Mischa Barton, the iconic ‘It girl’ of the early 2000s and star of The O.C, may be among the 10 celebrities gracing the show.
Much of the rumours around Barton suggest it would line up with her schedule in the promotion of her new role in Neighbours.
While certain details remain shrouded in mystery, we do know that one participant is a Grammy-winning global superstar, another is a beloved Hollywood heartthrob, and yet another enigmatic celebrity holds the title of reality TV queen.
‘It’s all like double entendres. It’s like four levels of riddles that you’re like, “What does this even mean?”‘ she said.
In addition to guesses like Jackie O and Mischa Barton, fans of the show have been flooding promotional videos on Instagram with their thoughts.
Amber Riley, renowned for her role in Glee, stands out as the top choice following the snippet of ‘Snow Fox’ delivering a soul-stirring rendition of Avicii’s ‘Addicted.’
‘It’s Amber Riley, it has to be!’ wrote one comment on Instagram, while another claimed it was ‘Jess Mauboy for sure.’
Despite the creepy costume, many fans believe the Grim Reaper’s identity is that of Darren Hayes, former frontman of Savage Garden, after a performance of Sam Smith and Kim Petras’ Unholy in the promo video.
Meanwhile, many fans are split over the Bad Avocado and Space Fairy, with some believing Tones and I is one or the other.
Panellist Mel B declares in the promos that she’s convinced her former bandmate Emma Bunton is concealed beneath the Bluebottle costume, while social media pundits were sceptical of Scary’s bias.
‘I’d be rich if I was paid $100 for every time Mel predicts a Spice Girl,’ wrote one commenter.
