The Masked Singer Australia 2023 Recap Episode 8: A newcomer is unmasked

It was certainly entertaining!

It’s episode eight of The Masked Singer Australia 2023 and we have the entry – and exit – of a new wild card.

The Captain joined the remaining masks on the show and belted out a highly entertaining rendition of Hey Baby (If You’ll be My Girl) by DJ Otzi.

Mel B put it succinctly when she told The Captain he was clearly “not a singer, but a performer”.

The judges took note of the sporting reference in his clue and guessed Gyton Grantley, Wally Lewis, Brendan Fevola and Rick Springfield.

Unsurprisingly, after his short tenure on stage, it was time for The Captain to take off his mask.

It turned out that Hughsey was on the money, and it was AFL legend Fevola.

Fevola explained that every year fans assume it’s him behind the mask, so he decided to join the show.

The Other Performances

Grim Reaper

Clues: Last time, death came knocking and the panel tried to guess the skeleton in my closet. Now, I’m ready to knock ‘em dead.

When you look back on your life you want to score a 10, it’s an important number to me. Of course, you could always aim even higher but success is 150 to one. In my life, I’ve seen it all, I’ve seen the ugly and I’ve seen the pretty and, while I take my job seriously, I am not my brother’s keeper. You know, life is complicated. That’s something you learn travelling this big world, and I have travelled all of it and more. Ambition is a good thing, it can take you from what’s holding you back. You don’t need to hide who you are… even though I still do.

Song: I Ain’t Worried by OneRepublic

Guesses: Dean Lewis, Matt Corby, One of the Boyz II Men guys, Mika

Cow Girl

The Masked Singer episode 8

Cow Girl really thrilled the judges with their performance, and in the clues there were a lot of hints relating to flowers, with Cow Girl even doing a tango with a rose in her teeth. One of her bodyguards also held up a sign that read “heart plus heart”. Finally, Cow Girl was seen playing the fiddle as a frog hopped across the screen. Do you know who this could be?

Clues: In the last performance I had everyone going Gaga, time to saddle up! Don’t worry, this isn’t my first rodeo.

Now is the time for this Cow Girl to bloom. I’m not talking about dancing, I’ve always had two right feet. If you could turn back time… you’d see I’m a born entertainer. It gives me a sense of euphoria. So, is my life an act? I certainly play the part and I can act very neighbourly when called upon.

Song: What About Me by Moving Pictures

Guesses: Trevor Ashley, Sophie Monk, Chad Michaels, Guy Pearce

Snow Fox

Snow Fox has been known to totally stun the guessing panel – and us at home – and this performance was no exception. During her clues, Snow Fox was first seen being papped by a series of photographers, before she was flanked by two versions of the Statue of Liberty. There was also not one but two snow globes featured in this clue package, one she shook up in her hand while the other sat behind her on a table featuring a Christmas tree.

Clues: My last performance was snow joke, and the panel tried to break the ice! Watch out foxy fans as I freeze the day!

As a Snow Fox, I want to do my job and look good doing it, even statuesque, royal, but always contemporary. Sitting here, I’ve taken a very strong sense of deja vu, there’s a real feeling of intimacy, don’t you think? Or maybe it’s more obvious, like… what have I inked? And there’s not enough wisdom in the world, or compassion, that’s the one thing I would change.

Song: Castles by Freya Ridings

Guesses: Jessie J, Lorde, Idina Menzel, Jessica Mauboy


The Masked Singer episode 8

Bouncer has the guessing panel hopping mad when it comes to his secret celebrity identity, and in the clues tonight we saw him holding a baby roo, maybe a reference to a Joey of his very own? Bouncer was also standing in front of some colourful bowls, yellow, red, blue and purple. Why do those colours sound so familiar?

Clues: Last time I nearly ended up as roadkill, and my identity kept them spinning on their tails. Look out Australia, this roo is ready to rumble!

Being a doorman is a little bit mysterious, you gotta play it cool. Hey, you! Hold up, are you 18? No? Then come on in! But no staying past midnight. You know, I love the Aussie countryside, but I felt pretty welcome in the Big Apple too. Those yanks say grace before every meal! Good people. I don’t know about you, but I like to lend other people a hand. Of course, flying solo isn’t so bad either.

Song: Even When I’m Sleeping by Leonardo’s Bride

Guesses: Conrad Sewell, Leo Sayer, Tim Cahill, Nathan Foley

The Masked Singer Australia continues Monday at 7.30pm on 10 And 10 Play.
