The three remaining The Masked Singer Australia contestants went mask-to-mask during the August 28 finale, with Mirrorball predictably being announced as the winner of the 2022 season.

Mirrorball was unmasked to be none other than The Pussycat DollsMelody Thornton, but many fans on Twitter were underwhelmed with the (somewhat obvious) final reveals.

As predicted from the get-go, runner-up Snapdragon turned out to be Eurovision singer Sheldon Riley and Rooster was revealed as Pack to the Rafters’ star Hugh Sheridan.

But fans questioned whether The Masked Singer Australia was “rigged”, with many pointing out it was the second year in a row that the international celebrity pulled out the big win.

“This show is so stupid,” One fan wrote on Instagram.

They continued: “Hughesy ‘randomly’ choosing Melody now is showing its ridiculously rigged and even though Sheldon and the Rooster are way more entertaining, the Mirror Ball will win because the show paid her big bucks to go all the way.”

The Masked Singer Australia fans believed 2022 finalist Hugh had the most stage presence and understood the show’s “wacky” vibe, while others claimed Sheldon was “robbed” of the win.

Fans Question Whether The Masked Singer Australia Producers Gave Hughesy the Answer

The Masked Singer Australia judge Dave “Hughesy” Hughes loves to annoy his fellow panellists and viewers alike with his ridiculous (and often impossible) guesses.

So fans were understandably weary when Hughesy miraculously guessed Melody as Mirrorball, with some suspecting producers fed him the correct answer.

One fan even pointed out it was embarrassing that the judges never guessed Melody throughout the show, suggesting producers had to give one of them the answer.

Others thought it was hilarious that Hughesy looked like he had no clue who Melody was even after guessing her correctly.

Gold star for effort, Hughesy and congratulations to Melody!
