'That's Pretty Sick!': Darren McMullen Reacts To People Thirsting Over The Prawn On 'The Masked Singer'
On Monday's episode of 'The Masked Singer Australia', we finally discovered that the mysterious man behind the Prawn mask was none other than Darren McMullen.
The 'Masked Singer's Prawn has finally been de-shelled, and after countless guesses by the viewers and judges that ranged from Kris Smith and Red Symons to Redfoo and Richard Wilkins, the cocky crustacean was revealed to be the Scottish actor and presenter.
Speaking to 10 daily over the phone, McMullen, 37, described his experience on the show as "absolutely bonkers".
"So many times I would be sitting there with my prawn head in my lap thinking, 'This is so fun, I get to dress up like a giant prawn and make a complete tit of myself on national TV, and do what I've always wanted to do which is to sing on stage," McMullen explained.
"It was brilliant and I loved every second of it! I wish I could do it all again, just amazing," he added.
And while McMullen undoubtedly had a good time on stage, he was unaware that he had a slew of thirsty social media users who equally enjoyed his performance, and not just for the singing...
"I am also actually attracted to the prawn I am in crisis," one Twitter user declared after witnessing the Prawn's sensual show, as another added, "I don’t have a shellfish allergy, but prawn could crush my windpipe".
"That is pretty sick!" McMullen responded that the thirst for his Prawn was well and truly real.
"One of the hesitations I had going on was like, 'I don't want to be a stinking prawn, who's gonna want to vote for prawn?!'"
"Then I realise, this is Australia! Australia is going to love a prawn because it will be a little silly and tongue in cheek. So I'm glad he went down that way because it could have gone the other way!" he continued.
"So I will take those thirsty comments!"
And with Darren's latest Instagram
