‘Only My Wife Knew’: The Masked Singer’s Parrot Is Cricket Legend Brett Lee
Brett Lee has been revealed as the second mystery celeb on ‘The Masked Singer Australia’ after taking off his feathery Parrot head in front of the shocked judges.
After singing the classic Hoodoo Gurus track “What’s My Scene?”, the panellists couldn’t quite guess who Parrot might be, although they were all certain it was probably a sportsman.
Both Dannii Minogue and Dave Hughes guessed Shane Warne would be keen for a crack at the microphone while Lindsay Lohan guessed Kelly Slater and Jackie O put 'Honey Badger' Nick Cummins’ name forward.
"Surprise!" Lee said to the very surprised judges after removing his brightly-coloured garb.
The fast bowler admitted his kids and parents were probably going to be pretty shocked to see that he was hiding underneath the Parrot costume -- and to be honest, we didn’t see it coming, either.
But Brett told Network 10 that there was one person he was able to share the huge secret ahead of the show's broadcast.
"Only my wife knew and no one else. Sometimes in conversation, you could be so careful that it doesn’t slip out," he explained, adding the secrecy was the "hardest and most exciting" part of the gig.
If you have another watch of the oh-so cryptic clues laid out before Parrot's performance, everything seems extremely obvious now.
Brett Lee definitely lived his life at “high speed” with a job that others would find terrifying when he had the ability to bowl at speeds of up to 161kmph. His cricket gig saw him fly across the world chasing the sun to locations like the UK, India and South Africa (which were all pictured on screen).
The “modelling” and “catwalk” references were about Brett’s time on the runway as a teen model, apparently.
Consider us bowled over!
