The Judges on The Masked Singer Were Told Not to Use This Brilliant Guessing Strategy
Being a judge on The Masked Singer has to be one of the toughest jobs on television.
Okay, perhaps that’s a bit of an exaggeration, but it’s definitely not easy. They’re required to come up with some solid guesses after watching a cryptic clue package that is usually filled with irrelevant hints and then seeing the character perform on stage.
It’s a real sport, and we honestly think Chrissie Swan should become a detective for the Australian Police Force because, damn, she’s good.
However, one of the judges was told she was doing her job a little too well and that her “obsession” with finding out who’s behind the mask was ruining the show.
Uh … what?
Appearing on Channel 10’s The Cheap Seats, Abbie Chatfield said she figured out a solid strategy that ensured her guesses were usually correct.
“I was like, I know how tall Osher is, and I’m going to work back from there – and I was usually right,” Abbie said.
It was a great tactic, but sadly, the network wasn’t a huge fan of her sleuthing skills.
“I was told I was height-obsessed and to stop obsessing over heights because it was ruining the fantasy and that it could be someone else,” she revealed.
Thankfully, the roadblock hasn’t stopped Abbie from sleuthing, as she’s found other ways to figure out who’s hiding behind the mask.
“I’m on the gossip sites babe,” she said. “I was scrolling through Wikipedia. I’m trying to find any Reddit threads about anyone. I am deep diving.”
