The Masked Singer Australia 2022’s Abbie Chatfield was left disappointed earlier this week after not receiving an Australian Commercial Radio Awards (ACRA) nomination, and there could be a good reason for it!
Just a day after news of her reported break-up with Konrad Bien-Stephen broke, Abbie revealed that she was actually “crying about the lack of nominations”.
“It’s all good, guys, because you know what the most important nominations are? When you nominate to put us in your ears.
“I don’t care about the ACRAs. It doesn’t bother me at all. I think it’s braver to admit that you’re upset than it is to pretend that you don’t care,” she said.
Why Did Abbie Chatfield Miss Out on an ACRA Nomination?
As first reported by Yahoo! Lifestyle, the 27-year-old may have missed out because this year’s awards are for the shows that aired between April 1, 2021, and March 31, 2022.
Abbie’s show has only been running for seven months — premiering on January 17, 2022 — meaning that only eleven weeks of content was considered.
However, the talented media personality joked it might be because she talks about “hard nips” a lot, which is nothing compared to KIIS FM’s The Kyle and Jackie O Show!
Abbie Chatfield Could Be Headed for Breakfast Radio
This means that not only would she replace the current line-up, but she would also go up against the KIIS FM juggernaut!
According to The Daily Telegraph, The Bachelor star is already being prepped to take over 2DayFM’s Sydney breakfast show, Hughesy, Ed and Erin, which Dave “Hughesy” Hughes currently helms with Ed Cavalee and Erin Molan.
Abbie would likely draw in audiences who weren’t keen on listening to controversial shock jock Kyle Sandilands.
And ,she may just be the “wildcard” needed to end KIIS’ decade-long rating monopoly!
