Hughesy correctly guesses Brendan Fevola on Masked Singer

It doesn’t happen often, but Dave Hughes correctly guessed a performer on The Masked Singer when Brendan Fevola was unmasked as wildcard act, The Captain.

The former AFL player and I’m a Celebrity winner made his first appearance singing DJ Ötzi’s Hey Baby, but it wasn’t enough to compete with Cowgirl, Grim Reaper, Snowfox and Bouncer.

While other panelists guessed Wally Lewis, Rick Springfield, and Gyton Grantley, it was Hughesy who recognised the ex-Carlton player and called him on it.

Hughesy even correctly the 2022 winner, ‘Mirrorball’ as Melody Thornton of Pussycat Dolls fame. While that answer seemed to come from nowhere late in the season, many viewers cried foul on social media.

On radio he insisted, “No one gave me (Thornton’s) name….. I came up with it on my own! For God’s sake!’”

At least the Fev answer is more on brand for Hughesy, given Carlton is also his chosen AFL team and Fev is a personal friends.

There are three more remaining episodes on 10, with a grand final next Tuesday night.
