Twin trouble ahead? | BACK |
28 July 2004

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 King musical.

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".
