With Dave Hughes and Urzila Carlson firmly decided Jessica Mauboy was under the Bushranger’s glittering helmet, it was Inspectors Dannii Minogue and Jackie O who cracked the case, revealing Bushranger to actually be Neighbours star, Bonnie Anderson.
Standing alongside Frillneck and Queen, who were revealed to be Eddie Perfect and Kate Miller-Heidke respectively, Bonnie’s Bushranger belted her way to the end, and to The Masked Singer trophy.
Following her final performance of 'When Love Takes Over', Bonnie - still in her mask - admitted she had been “neglecting” her music lately.
After she had taken her mask off, Jackie asked about the comment and if competing on the series had inspired her to pursue her music again.
“Neighbours has taken a lot of my time,” Bonnie said, “[Masked Singer] has sparked up a little fire in me and it’s nice to know I can do this!”
One of the masks that not only divided the judging panel but also Aussies who had been watching, Bonnie said one of the hardest parts of being on the season was trying to lie to friends and family.
“It’s very hard to lie on this show, I tell you,” she said holding her trophy. “All of my family, my friends, all of you watching were bugging me. I’m a terrible liar, but I think my acting skills came into play!”
Earlier in the show, Bonnie spoke about what it was like to perform under the mask, saying being Bushranger had made her feel “fierce, bullet-proof and invincible”.
“I feel like I can stand strong and take on the world. Whatever happens now, win or lose, I am happy. I’m a winner!”
