TEN has confirmed the return of Australian Survivor and excitingly announced a Live finale and reunion in response to fan feedback.
It will launch at 7.30pm on Sunday 30 July, now shaping up as a big night of TV, given The Block is also confirmed.
Jonathan LaPaglia returns as host with 24 contestants competing for a whopping $500,000 prize. The Live finale will include all 24 contestants returning for the winner announcement, in front of an audience.
“I wasn’t sure how we were going to top last year but I think we will. Everything is bigger and rougher and wilder than before. We have come up with some epic challenges to put our contestants through and there are some serious game players in here,” said LaPaglia.
“We have got a great bunch of contestants who represent a good cross-section of Australia and I think the audiences are going to love it even more than last time.
“There’s still that element of mateship and loyalty that’s such an important part of Australia’s social fabric that really gets the contestants struggling because of the nature of the show. And there’s a lot of fun seeing some of these big game players really go all out.
“Last year we had a tough group of competitors and it’s hard to beat such a huge series and especially that final Immunity Challenge seeing the underdog Kristie come through. It’s going to be a tough one to beat but I think we’re going to do it,” he said.
7:30pm Sunday 30 July on TEN.
