Former Australian Idol finalist Rob Mills has his eye on a new TV gig for 2022.
Last week on the blue carpet for RuPaul’s Drag Race: Down Under with partner, ABC’s Georgie Tunny, he told TV Tonight, “TV wise, it’s been a lot of meetings. So who knows? But wouldn’t it be great if there was an Australian Idol alumni to host a new series of Australian Idol?
“Wouldn’t that be some great synergy?”
Mills made the Final 5 of Season One of Idol back in 2003 and has maintained a profile through stage and TV work, including hosting the 2012 revival of Young Talent Time for 10 plus Celebrity Apprentice, Neighbours and on The Masked Singer. He performed in Chess: The Musical in Melbourne last month, with Adelaide, Brisbane and Perth to come.
Seven announced an Australian Idol revival for 2022 in their last Upfronts.
But does ‘Millsy’ feel he is better suited to judging or hosting?
“Hosting. I feel like I’ve got a lot more to offer, going around the country to meet the people. We shall see!”
