Season 1: Cody Simpson

Cody took out the top spot in season one of The Masked Singer in 2019, managing to beat Rob Mills, who came in second place.

It wasn’t much of a surprise when he was unmasked, as his identity was just about the worst-kept secret in Aussie showbiz at the time.

“Secret’s out. Took the crown! Thank you,” he wrote on Instagram after his win.

Singing on the show as the Robot, the 24-year-old was dating none other than Miley Cyrus at the time.

They’ve since split and Cody made a pretty major career change in 2020, when he announced his surprise bid for the Tokyo Olympics.

He was a talented swimmer in his youth and returned to the sport in 2021 in the hopes of making the Australian Olympic swimming team.

His journey was included in the Amazon Prime Video documentary Head Above Water.

Cody worked with the likes of Ian Thorpe to train up for his Olympic bid but ended up missing out at the Australian Olympic swimming trials in June 2021.

The singer wasn’t too disappointed with the result, saying: “To be in that final, that is my achievement for this year, that is my gold medal at least for 2021.

“I didn’t expect to be remotely competitive until 2022-23 at the earliest.”

He’s currently training for the 2024 Olympics and has the support of a very special person – new girlfriend and Olympian Emma McKeon!

Season 2: Bonnie Anderson

Bonnie won season two of The Masked Singer Australia in 2020 as the Bushranger, beating out Kate Miller-Heidke who was that season’s runner up.

“I went on the show [and] I sung my little heart out the best I could. I loved being on there it was such a cool experience,” Bonnie told TV WEEK of her win at the time.

The Neighbours star had a singing background and actually won Australia’s Got Talent as a youngster in 2007.

After her victory on The Masked Singer, she continued acting on Neighbours before making the bittersweet decision to leave Ramsay Street behind.

Neighbours really changed my life for the better in so, so many ways,” she told The Herald Sun.

“It was really good to have that structure and now after three and a half years on that show I have decided it is time for me to continue challenging myself and create space to focus on my music and songwriting and more acting.”

She has yet to release an album, but that may be because she was busy filming *SAS: Australia.* in 2021.

The 27-year-old is starred alongside Jett Kenny and Dan Ewing in the second season of the gruelling reality TV show.

“Stepped into another world and braved it all with all of these great people!” Bonnie wrote on Instagram when the cast was announced.

“I will never ever forget this experience. Thanks for the opportunity and all of the lessons.”

In March of 2021 Bonnie also went public with her new boyfriend Matthew Bushby during a getaway to Mt Horn in Victoria.

“Doesn’t get much better than this…” the actress captioned a series of photos with Matt, adding a red love heart emoji.

Speaking openly about her new romance, Bonnie told the Herald Sun: “I find myself in a really happy, confident place.”

And now she’s happier and more in love than ever, as she and Matt are expecting their first child together.

Season 3: Anastacia

In 2021 American singer Anastacia wowed the panellists and everyone at home while perfoming under the Vampire mask and naturally took out the win.

Already a global music icon, it was a huge surprise to see her on the Aussie reality TV show and Osher asked why she agreed to do it.

“I was actually asking myself that question when I saw the costume for the first time, I was terrified to be the Vampire!” the songstress joked.

But she said it was all worth it to be able to perform again after the pandemic shut down the music industry: “I miss my job! I really miss singing.”

After appearing on the show she got back to what she loved, announcing I’m Outta Lockdown – The 22nd Anniversary European Tour in November.

The singer is now back on stage and even released new music in February 2022, dropping the single “American Night”, the theme song to 2021 film American Night.

It looks like she’s not done performing yet!
