TEN has backtracked on plans to stage a Live Australian Survivor finale.
In July TEN announced: “This year, the winner of Australian Survivor will be announced in an epic Live finale. After season one, viewers demanded a Live finale and Network TEN has delivered. All 24 contestants will come together, in front of a Live audience, for the announcement of the winner and the reunion special.”
Filming will take place tonight in Sydney, ahead of Tuesday’s broadcast, falling well short of a Live finale.
In the US the finale opens Live in studio with host Jeff Probst and audience, before the pre-recorded episode rolls, culminating in a final tribal council & vote. The winner is announced Live to air as part of the Reunion episode.
Neither TEN nor Endemol Shine replied to enquiries.
