Did Jackie ‘O’ Henderson steal her new Channel Seven guest gig from Ada Nicodemou? ‘Eyebrows raised’ as Home and Away star ‘overlooked’ for top job


Channel Seven’s decision to choose Jackie ‘O’ Henderson as the narrator of its new dating series Stranded on Honeymoon Island has sparked controversy.

Titled ‘Married At First Sight on the beach’, the show was widely expected to be fronted by Home and Away star Ada Nicodema, who gave a first look at the program during Channel Seven’s 2024 content reveal last October.

According to New Idea this week, industry sources were surprised by the decision to cast Jackie, 49.

Ada, 47, gave an enthusiastic speech at the unveiling, which many believed signaled her involvement.

“If you’re bad at relationships and can’t even get a second date, let alone find the love of your life, what are you going to do? Well, I have a show for you… Stuck on Honeymoon Island,” Ada excitedly told the audience.

Having been a beloved member of the Seven family for over 24 years, Ada seemed like a natural choice for the gig.

«This appointment raised a lot of eyebrows,» an insider told the publication.

«While there is no doubt that Jackie is a perfect fit to tell the story of a show like this, there is a feeling that Seven should be looking viscerally at someone who has been loyal to the network, such as Home and Away stars such as Ada or Emily Weir. .’

The network’s decision to go with Jackie, especially after her last reality TV show with The Masked Singer faced challenges, left many confused.

A source close to the situation indicated that the decisions could be driven by business strategy.

«It makes sense for Seven to hire Jackie on Honeymoon Island,» the source explained.

“Seven bosses probably know that shows like MAFS get a lot of airtime on KIIS and were smart to secure Kyle for Australian Idol where he managed to get his act together. Now they’ve got Jackie to deliver Honeymoon Island, hopefully a ratings hit.»

Daily Mail Australia has approached Channel Seven for comment.
