The Masked Singer Australia’s executive producer Tamara Simoneau sang the praises of new panelist Abbie Chatfield on Friday.
Speaking with Mediaweek, Tamara called the former Bachelor runner-up, 27, a ‘powerhouse’.
‘Abbie Chatfield is just an absolute natural born TV star, and such a super sleuth,’ she gushed. ‘She’s such a powerhouse on socials.’
She continued: ‘I think her superpower is the socials and how she works them to figure out who’s behind the masks.’
It comes after Abbie spoke about her career and her new role on the show to Yahoo Lifestyle on Friday.
She explained how thrilled she was to have gained the gig as a judge on the hit series and says she can’t believe she’s following in ex-panelist Jackie O’s footsteps.
‘I remembered how excited I was to even just be interviewed on Kyle and Jackie O three years ago,’ Abbie said.
She added: ‘Now I’ve got my own radio show and I’ve taken Jackie O’s role on The Masked Singer.’
Abbie shares judging duties on the new fourth season of The Masked Singer with radio presenter Chrissie Swan, Mel B and Dave Hughes.
Jackie ‘O’ Henderson was a judge on the first three seasons of The Masked Singer Australia and sent Abbie a ‘beautiful’ congratulatory message.
Abbie went on to say that she’s had the ‘support’ from past judges and added: ‘I’m just so lucky to have this job.
Another feather in Abbie’s cap was announced this week.
It has been confirmed the influencer will host the national RnB Fridayz Live tour in November.
The tour will feature superstars including Ashanti, Macklemore and Shaggy.
The new season of The Masked Singer is set to premiere Sunday, August 7 on Channel 10 and 10 Play.
