The Masked Singer Australia Discussion Thread

So I'm not into reality TV, at all. I think it's garbage and bullshit. However, this year, I've really gotten into the Masked Singer. The Masked Singer is stupid, but fun, nonetheless. So, here I thought we can discuss the show, and it really eats into my curiosity.

One of them, I don't remember which one, sounds exaclty like Sophie Monk, but apparently she's been on the show before, so what do I know.

The Atlantis, I am guessing Camilla Franks. It sounds exaclty like her, and Camilla is known for her love of colour.

For the Baby, I am guessing Avril Lavigne. Even though she sounds absolutely nothing like Avril Lavigne, all the clues lead me to her. She's known for being a bad girl, which was something mentioned in tonight's episode, she said that she's a baby because she never grew up (she has a song called here's to never growing up). She had the number 30 in the background, and she got divorsed for the second time around that age. It's gotta be Avril Lavigne.

One of them, I don't remember who, I was thinking Jojo Siwa, who apparently appeared on the USA's version of the show

Anyway guys, what do you think.

I am dumbfounded at my fascination with the American version. I do not like pop music (not in that 'I'm too good for it way...at least not since I took a healthy dose of 'get over myself', just in a 'not my bag' way), I'm not into celebrity culture so at least a third of the reveals I end up going, "Who is that?" And yet...haven't missed an episode.

I mean, part of it is how elaborate the costumes are. And I guess some of it is just enjoying people doing something for the fun of it, I guess. Though I don't watch the spin off related series like people in costumes dancing or I guess the new one that does motion capture and projects an animated avatar doing the singing? Just the original.

This doesn't help with your guessing for the Australian one, but I'd have even less of a chance figuring that out. There's only so many times I can guess a Hemsworth, Kylie Minogue, Paul Hogan, or Mel Gibson, thus completing my list of Australian celebrities whose name I know.

Hey, I am like you, I don't get celebrities either, and wouldn't know 1/8 of them. And I wouldn't watch any spin offs either. However, it doesn't help that Australia has so few celebrities that they have to scrape the bottom of the barrel to find E-List celebrities who are "famous" for having maybe appeared once in a reality TV show. However, they said in all the ads that there will be international celebrities, and I am almost certain that one of them would be Avril Lavigne

The American one has had YouTubers but also DIon Warwick and I think Gladys Knight. All over the place. The two funniest were Danny Trejo and Mickey Rourke, neither of those dudes knew why they were there or what they were doing. Rourke just straight up took his helmet off after his first song. Fucking hilarious.

Lol same. I like some pop, but not a huge amount. And my celebrity knowledge is pretty much limited to MCU actors. I think I’ve correctly guessed like, three people in the entire series’s run.

And yet, I never miss an episode. It’s just fun, dumb entertainment to take the edge off after a long day of classes.
