Friday Flashback: I Will Survive

Before there was RuPaul's Drag Race: Down Under there was this from 10.

Before there was RuPaul’s Drag Race: Down Under there was I Will Survive on 10.

Hosted by Hugh Sheridan the talent quest in 2012 springboarded from the hit Priscilla, Queen of the Desert, with director Stephan Elliott as a judge.

It screened for one season at a time when 10 was struggling to get hits on air. Alas if they had shown  some the behind the scenes footage it may have rated higher…

Dance instructor Michael Snell won the show and a whopping $250,000 prize.

  1. Oh, I loved this show! The ratings were considered poor so they panicked and hacked it apart and shortened the episodes mid-airing, as I recall. I also thought Tom Sharah should have won.

  2. I remember this and thought it was pretty good. Certainly very different to everything else on TV at the time. It was quite brave which is partly why I gave it a go.
