Abbie Chatfield’s Unexpected Journey to “The Masked Singer” Spotlight
Fresh off her exit from radio, Abbie Chatfield is gracing “The Masked Singer” 2023’s guessing panel with her signature confidence, an overflow of compliments, and charisma that can light up the stage.
Hailing from Brisbane, Abbie brings her larger-than-life energy to the judges’ table, rubbing shoulders with the likes of Chrissie Swan, Mel B, and David Hughes.
Abbie’s journey to stardom began four years ago when she made her debut on “The Bachelor Australia“. Little did anyone predict that this pivotal reality TV moment would set her on a trajectory towards a national radio gig and an international following. Abbie not only survived the reality TV villain edit, but she conquered it, holding her head high. Let’s get to know this Masked Singer judge.
“The Masked Singer” Judge Abbie Chatfield
In 2020, Abbie took another shot at love on “Bachelor in Paradise Australia”, leaving her heartbreak era behind. But the real breakthrough came in 2021 when she ventured into the jungle for “I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!” and emerged victorious. Abbie clinched victory thanks to an overwhelming public vote, becoming the first person under 30 to win the show and securing $100,000 for her chosen charity, Dementia Australia.
Abbie’s no-holds-barred personality and unwavering confidence catapulted her TV career from contestant to the host. She has taken the reins of Nine’s “Love Island Afterparty” and delivered her very own TV special for 10 Play, aptly titled “Abbie Chats.” Her latest gig was BINGE’s reality dating competition, “FBOY Island Australia“.
But Abbie’s talents reach far beyond the screen. She’s the driving force behind her own podcast, aptly named “It’s a Lot.” On her show, Abbie fearlessly delves into everything from life and feminism to sex positivity and dating. The success of this biweekly show even led to Abbie’s radio hosting gig on the Hit Network, though she recently made the bold move to step away from radio and focus on her ever-expanding array of projects.
Abbie Has Her Own Beer Brand
Abbie’s presence on social media is equally remarkable. With 455k followers on Instagram and 356k on TikTok, she speaks to her audience in a way that few can. Her engaged and loyal fanbase even inspired her to launch her own beer brand, Spill.
What Hasn’t Abbie Done?
Abbie’s list of successes extends to ambassadorships with major brands like UberEats, Myer, Libra, and Tinder. She made her mark in the world of live entertainment in 2022 with Frontier Touring. Her debut tour sold out within moments and kicked off at the prestigious Sydney Opera House. Her second live offering, the “Trauma Dump Tour,” enjoyed similar success and garnered rave reviews as a “one-of-a-kind, never-before-seen live experience”.
In just a few short years, Abbie has left an indelible mark across television, radio, social media, and live entertainment. And she’s only just getting started.
“The Masked Singer Australia” continues Monday at 7.30pm on 10 and 10 Play.
