Bushranger’s Reveal On The Masked Singer Proves You Don’t Need A Big Name To Have A Big Voice

The very last celeb in the finale of The Masked Singer has just been revealed, and yep, just as half of us suspected: Bushranger is Neighbours star and singer-songwriter Bonnie Anderson.

For weeks now, fans (and even the judges) were torn between Anderson and national treasure Jessica Mauboy. It just sounded so much like both of them.

But it was Anderson who took out the competition, and although she might have been a slightly smaller name than some of the others, she has proven how huge and incredible that voice of hers really is.

There were also a few really random guesses like Fergie, Terri Irwin, Kelly Rowland and David Beckham, for some reason.

For all of you playing along at home, the clues that would’ve given it away include:

Clue #1: “Why am I the Bushranger? Because I’m not afraid to stand up and take what I want.”

Clue #2: “I’m proud of my heritage. My past is important to me.”

Clue #3: “Like a true Bushranger, I took the path less travelled and I have never regretted it. That’s because I’m a fighter from a family of fighters.”

Clue #4: “Sometimes the only way to survive is to turn the light out, it’s better than crying and rusting my helmet.”

Clue #7: “I’m very comfortable with horse power, like other women before me.”

Clue #8: “But I’m never comfortable being just the one thing. It’s important to always be growing. Roses are my favourite.”

Clue #13: “You have to follow your dreams, but do it in your own way.”

Clue #14: “It’s hard work getting people all over the country to hand over their money. But working hard gives me a buzz.”

Clue #26: “But I’m tough too. From an early age, I was taught how to take the knocks and come back strong. It’s not the size of the dog in the fight that matters, especially when they have a tin lid like this.”

Clue #28: “And I’m also at home on stage and screen.”

Clue #29: “Everything that pushes me through my day-to-day life is about my family and know that they are proud of what I am achieving here.”

Clue #31: “We’re raised tough where I come from, and not afraid to think outside the squared circle, that’s why you’ll learn I don’t give up.”

Clue #32: “Am I a Kelly? No way, but I could have been. My decision wasn’t based on being a minor, but it did create quite the buzz.”

Clue #34: “I can be a perfectionist, a bit hard on myself, but Bushranger has helped me relax and just enjoy the performing.”

Clue #35: “I’ve neglected my music lately and Bushranger has helped me reconnect with something I love to do.”
