Masked Singer's Echidna revealed on first night

Masked Singer's Echidna revealed on first night

On Monday night's episode of The Masked Singer Australia, the Echidna was the first contestant to be revealed.

Hiding behind the elaborate mask was none other than the smooth-singing voice of tennis champion Mark Philippoussis.

Dannii Minogue was not far from the correct guess when she singled out another tennis star, Bernard Tomic, instead.

Jackie 'O' Henderson got it right however, saying: “I agree that it's a tennis player, and he's got a brilliant serve, he's done modelling. I am locked in Mark Philippoussis.”

Mark admitted he was not happy to be out so early.

“I was bummed. I'm going to be honest, I am competitive,” he said to host Osher Gunsgerg.

Mark went on to say that he loves music and singing and enjoyed his time on the show.

“I mean...who doesn't love to sing? I love music. It was an incredible adventure and it was, you know, good to do something where you're uncomfortable,” he said.

“I definitely was uncomfortable in this mask, but it was an absolute pleasure and it was fun. I had some fun,” he went to add.
