Jackie ‘O’ Henderson reportedly paid $1m for ‘The Masked Singer’
KIIS 106.5 Breakfast host Jackie ‘O’ Henderson is reportedly making a killing as a judge on the latest season of The Masked Singer.
That’s if a “well-placed source” for The Daily Mail is to be believed, with the tabloid suggesting that Henderson locked in a deal valued at $1 million to film the show’s second season in Australia.
The deal was reportedly locked in with Ten before the coronavirus pandemic hit, and sees her earning more than fellow judges Urzula Carlson, Dannii Minogue and Hit Network Drive host Dave ‘Hughesy’ Hughes.
Daily Mail understands that Henderson’s pay packet is similar to what Lindsay Lohan was paid to appear on the first season. She didn’t return this year due to coronavirus travel restrictions.
The publication also suggests that her pay is reflective of the fact that The Masked Singer gets free promo every weekday on KIIS FM’s The Kyle & Jackie O show.
Henderson confirmed on radio this week that ‘Dragonfly’ on the show is categorically not her good mate Sophie Monk.
“Oh, jeez, I’ve said too much already,” she said. “I really have to be careful. I’m going to get in so much trouble.”
