We're calling it: Gorgi Coghlan is definitely the Monster on The Masked Singer Australia.

Warning: This post almost definitely contains spoilers for The Masked Singer Australia.


For three weeks now, Australians have been on the edge of their couches as they attempt to guess the identities of furry animals singing on a reality TV show. And no, it does not get old.

With only three masks left – Robot, Monster and Wolf – we’re down to the finals and the suspense is acute.

We’re almost certain that Robot is Cody Simpson and Wolf is Rob Mills.

But who is the Monster? We believe we have reason to assume it’s television presenter Gorgi Coghlan, who’s a regular host on The Project.

Watch: The Monster performs “All By Myself” on The Masked Singer Australia. Post continues after video.

A post shared by PAULINI (@paulini_curuenavuli) on

During an interview after being unmasked as ‘Spider’, Paulini Curuenavuli seemingly confirmed that Gorgi Coghlan is the Monster.

While appearing on Newcastle radio station Hit106.9, Paulini was tricked into agreeing with the fan theory.

“I couldn’t believe that Gorgi Coghlan could sing. Could you believe that?” radio host Nick Gill said.

“I couldn’t either, I think that’s amazing!” Paulini responded. “I was actually blown away by a few of the celebs on the show.”

In a follow-up interview with The Masked Singer’s Dave Hughes, however, Paulini “swore on the Bible” that she didn’t know who the final three were.

“I actually have zero idea on who the remaining celebrities are,” Paulini said.

“I actually thought he [Gill] had said Deni… I was just saying ‘oh yeah, girl can sing’.”

… Right.
