The Voice contestant Chriddy Black has a secret past that Channel Nine is desperate to keep hidden.
A report from the Daily Telegraph’s Confidential reveals that Chriddy is actually a model and is signed up to three different modelling agencies…and Chriddy isn’t even his real name!
WATCH Chriddy in action modelling alongside Riverdale's KJ Apa:
The Gold Coast star’s real name is Chris Black and is on the books of Reel Models, SASS Management and N Model Management.
In a statement to Confidential, Nine said: “Chriddy is the name he auditioned with, as it’s his nickname. He is a part-time model, this wasn’t the focus of his story as it’s not his goal in life.”
In fact, far from being an undiscovered nobody, Chriddy – or Chris – has appeared in several high profile photoshoots, including one with Hollywood star KJ Apa and Australia’s own Lincoln Lewis.
And despite sporting a bleached blonde crop in the competition, the 26-year-old – who is being mentored by coach Guy Sebastian on the Nine TV show – has dark brown hair in several of the modelling shots that appear in his Instagram profile.
