Magic man’s showstopper
COSENTINO steps off the dance floor to find a new partner in the jaw-dropping season finale of his three-part special The Magic, The Mystery, The Madness on Wednesday.
The grand illusionist and Dancing with the Stars 400 video applications after announcing a new stunt that required a volunteer whom he had never met before.
In this final episode of The Magic, The Mystery, The Madness, Cosentino hypnotises the winning applicant in preparation for his most puzzling stunt to date – levitating a complete stranger who will float on nothing but thin air.
Equally confounding is Cosentino’s plan to be locked inside a wooden box at the base of a public concrete skateboarding bowl. With no possible trapdoors, or other escape options, he will be surrounded by public bystanders as he attempts to free himself without touching any of the locks.
Cosentino’s off-stage action continues as he ventures into public bars to challenge doubters and skeptics.
With his back turned and eyes closed, Cosentino attempts to mind-read the taste on the lips of volunteers who sip different flavoured drinks.
Revealing his softer side, Cosentino visits his former high school and recounts his childhood struggle with illiteracy.
His teacher recalls how this shy and introverted teenager transformed himself into a confident, spellbinding performer.
The Magic, The Mystery, The Madness: Wednesday, 7.30pm, Seven, Prime7.
