KIIS FM’s Jackie ‘O’ Henderson fails to select a $ 525,000 piece of art from amateur creations – but can you separate the real deal from the fakes?
Jackie ‘O’ Henderson earns an impressive $ 7.2 million salary on Sydney’s No.1 radio show The Kyle and Jackie O show.
Seeing herself as something of an art connoisseur, her co-host Kyle Sandilands decided Thursday to test Jackie’s eye for expensive art.
The radio crew tasked Jackie with identifying a $ 525,000 piece of art from among a sea of forgeries created by the show’s staff.
Pick: Jackie ‘O’ Henderson failed to select a $ 525,000 piece of art from a sea of amateur creations on Thursday, but could you separate the true from the false?
Jackie took on the challenge with confidence and told Kyle, “I’m going to be able to tell the difference. I know the art more than you do.
Eight members of the KIIS FM team created their own works of art, and the end products were mixed with the actual object from the Lyons Gallery in Sydney.
Jackie shared her honest thoughts on all of the paintings, before removing any designs she believed were fakes.
When a painting arrived, Jackie immediately said that the consistency of the lines and tufts of paint let her know “instantly” that it was done by an amateur.

“It looks good. I don’t like it, but it looks professional, ”Jackie said when presented with a painting of a strange theatrical mask.
At first, a Marilyn Monroe poster intrigued her, and she remarked, “I can’t imagine any of our staff could do that. I am impressed with it.
Several items were then quickly rejected for not looking top notch, and Jackie ended up with two designs, including the real deal.

The real deal: Andy Warhol’s pop art print was worth $ 525,000
Jackie tossed between the pop art poster and the strange mask on canvas.
“The mask is really haunting and could be 100% a $ 500,000 coin, and this Marilyn poster could be from Kmart. A cue, she thought.
“That might be the real thing, because I know these things are worth a lot of money… but would it be worth more if it was Andy Warhol’s stuff?”
Unfortunately, she ended up choosing the mask painting, which had been submitted by KIIS FM’s main producer, Pedro Cuccovillo Vitola.
