The bizarre celebrity feud behind the scenes of The Masked Singer Australia that will NEVER make it to air
Cody Simpson won the inaugural Masked Singer Australia in a memorable, futuristic Robot outfit last year.
And apparently tensions have been high behind the scenes as season two’s mystery cast fought hard to be dressed in the best costumes.
An insider told Woman’s Day this week that more than one celebrity contestant was fuming over their less-than-ideal costuming.

‘Producers were fielding calls from talent and talent managers who were not happy,’ the source claimed.
After the success of season one, judge Jackie ‘O’ Henderson has said that producers were spoilt for choice with casting the second season as many celebrities applied.
‘Many of them consider this to be their big comeback. So when they were given less-than-impressive costumes to wear, well, things felt strained backstage to say the least,’ the show insider claimed.

Apparently many stars believed Kitten and Bushranger were the most-desired costumes and fought hard to wear the designs on stage.
However, it was suggested that some stars were not so thrilled with having to sing to the nation in the more scarier costumes – Echidna, Puppet and Hammerhead.
The Project hosts previously poked fun of cricketer Michael Bevan’s bizarre construction hammerhead shark costume, to which he claimed he didn’t understand the concept either and hinted he wasn’t given a choice for his costuming.
Daily Mail Australia has contacted Channel 10 for comment.

Oscar award-winning costume designer Tim Chappel is the creative mind behind the amazing get-ups on The Masked Singer Australia.
Last year, he told Now To Love that his team design all the costumes before all the celebrities are officially cast and from there they are given a choice.
‘It was really interesting because the ones [the celebrities] who got in early had a wider pick but weirdly enough, everybody ended up with exactly the right costume,’ he said of the process last year.
