Jackie O TV Career
Jackie has hosted several television shows, the most well-known of which was the Popstars series, which included broadcast vocal group auditions. In 2005, Jackie served as the host of the Network Ten reality program Australian Princess, which featured a group of women who had been transformed into chic “princesses.” The second season of Australian Princess debuted on Network 10 in December during the slow-season summer. The Network did not explain why it was broadcast outside of the designated rating window.
In June 2007, she was a cast member of The Nation on the Nine Network. She has served as a co-host on the comedy program Surprise Surprise Gotcha, which has been compared to Punk’d and is known in Australia for its celebrity pranks. She was chosen in October 2007 together with her radio partner Kyle Sandilands to serve as the 2008 season’s hosts of Big Brother Australia in place of Gretel Killeen. Killeen hosted the program from 2001 to 2007. Big Brother Australia would not be returning in 2009 due to poor ratings for the 2008 season, Network Ten announced on July 14th, 2008. On The Masked Singer Australia in 2019, Jackie was officially announced as one of the guessers.
Jackie O Radio
Prior to her early 1993 encounter with Phil O’Neil, the night DJ at Sea FM on the Gold Coast, Jackie had no intention of becoming a radio personality. She had previously worked at a delicatessen as a sandwich maker and office girl. A few months later, she traveled to Canberra with O’Neil after he accepted a job offer from FM104.7. Management initially refused to let her be his “phone girl,” but after many denials, they eventually agreed—despite the fact that there was no payment provided.
Soon after, Jackie agreed to be O’Neil’s co-host in exchange for O’Neil accepting a job offer from Triple M Adelaide. It was at this moment that Jackie adopted the stage name “Jackie O.”
The duo considerably outperformed its main rival SAFM in the same time slot when the following survey’s results were made public, with ratings that had more than doubled. After seeing another rise in ratings in the ensuing poll, Fox FM in Melbourne decided to air Phil and Jackie. Their show soon gained network traction after relocating to 2Day FM in Sydney (Hot 30).
The couple co-hosted the Hot 30 radio show and a music show on Network Ten called Ground Zero in the late 1990s up until their breakup and O’Neil’s relocation to the UK.
As a co-host on the Today Network alongside “shock jock” Kyle Sandilands, Henderson’s radio career took off (broadcasting from Sydney station 2Day FM).
The couple changed their drive-time routine to breakfast at the beginning of 2005.
They served as the hosts of the Hot Hits countdown show until August 2009.
In addition to making appearances on radio, TV, and in advertisements, Henderson has voiced over characters for the animated feature Robots, playing the role of “Loretta Geargrinder” in the Australian release. In August 2013, Kyle and Jackie made the announcement that they will be moving from 2Day FM to KIIS 106.5FM. By March 2014, they had more than doubled the number of breakfast listeners at KiiS FM, making their program the most popular FM program in Sydney with 532,000 listeners, while 2Day FM lost 242,000 listeners in the process.
In 2018, Sandilands tasked Jackie O with writing and recording a song in one day. The outcome, “Honey Money,” written by Avalonia and produced by KIIS FM producer Kian Oliver (who also provided a rap), went to number one on the Australian iTunes chart and peaked at number 13 on the ARIA Digital Sales chart, spending a week inside the Top 50. All proceeds went to Drought Angels, a nonprofit organization founded to aid drought-affected Australian farmers. The song was then withdrawn because the artwork violated copyright since Jackie O’s face had been rapidly Photoshopped onto Iggy Azalea’s. Jackie O promised to reupload the song for no charge.
