10 has now confirmed Australian Survivor: Brains v Brawn as its competition battleground for 2021, with castaways pooled from all walks of life.
The Endemol Shine Australia series is staged in Cloncurry, north west Queensland with returning host Jonathan LaPaglia. This follows on from the postponed season due in late 2020 in Fiji, which was yet to confirm its theme. A “Brains v Brawn v Beauty” theme was first introduced in Survivor US in Cagayan, Philippines, in 2013.
It will screen later this year.
The Brains are outstanding in their chosen field and there’s much more to them than meets the eye. Dismissing them as simply book smart is the quickest way to get blindsided.
Careful strategists, they know when to bide their time and are strongest when their backs are against the wall.
Think Brawn are all muscle, no hustle? Think again. These castaways may be the doers in their professions but as we all know in this game, physical strength can only get you so far. With a laser like mental focus, they’ll do what it takes to get their way. The smiling assassins who like to win, they know keeping friends close and enemies closer is the only way to be the last one standing.
