Speculation and hearsay on the Inside Australian Idol
forums suggest that a dramatic withdrawal from Maya McClean
may occur when the top 30 is announced next week. One
half of twin duo Maya McClean progressed to the top 118
while sister Nandy failed to impress the judges earlier
this series. Rumour has it that Maya McClean is set to
make a dramatic withdrawal from the contest citing the
separation from her twin sister as her main motivation.
However, "GrrlCanMove" has posted the
following on the forum:
" .I know a lot of this show is controlled,
but it is not determined who wins. For example, my friend
Maya [McClean] who got through to the top 30. (she was
from sydney, the twin who got through). Anyway she just
dropped out of the contest and they made her sign a confidentiality
agreement where she can only say that the reason she left
the comp was because she didnt want to leave her sister,
but the real reason is, she just got a part in the Lion
So my point is, its obviously manipulated, but [the Australian
Idol contest is] not fixed."
Viewers may also recall that the McClean twins also made
a pact to stay together on the second series of Channel
Seven talent program "Popstars".
