After TEN confirmed its return in 2018, Australian Survivor has opened casting for new contestants.
This season “Champions v Contenders” is looking for champions in their chosen field who are ready to outwit, outplay and outlast.
A casting notice is seeking, “Men and Women of all backgrounds and locations around Australia” who are physically and mentally strong enough to survive in some of the toughest conditions ever experienced” and can “engage with others, be confident and be comfortable living in close quarters with strangers.”
Applicants must be be an Australian Citizen or Permanent Resident aged 18 years or over by January 1, 2018. They must also be able to swim.
Auditions with producers will take place between January 27 – February 12 2018 with filming approx. 10-12 weeks between April and June 2018.
How will I know if I have made it to the next round of auditions?
The Casting Team will only contact you should your initial application be successful.
What type of contestant are you looking for?
There is no one type of contestant who will be chosen. We are looking for a wide variety of people from different backgrounds, who will bring different elements of energy and excitement to the contest.
I can’t afford to take 9 weeks off work. If I am chosen to be a contestant, will I be compensated for my time?
The winner will be awarded an appealing cash prize. Whilst you are on location, you will receive a basic fee.
Do I need to have extreme survival training to participate?
No, it is not a requirement, however, it certainly won’t hurt to have those skills if chosen.
Do I need to be a super athlete to participate?
Absolutely not, but you do need to be in excellent physical and mental health.
Will I be able to contact my family whilst away on location?
No – while the contestants are stranded on the island, there will be no contact with the outside world.
