Returning: The Summit

Some familiar faces compete alongside everyday Australians in the second season of Nine reality series.

Season Two of The Summit, hosted by actor Jai Courtney, will screen on Nine in May.

This season, again filmed in NZ, sees familiar faces alongside everyday Australians.

They include ex-NRL champ Mat Rogers (Australian Survivor), Olympia Valance (Neighbours, Dancing with the Stars), Simmone Jade Mackinnon (McLeod’s Daughters, Rescue: Special Ops, Neighbours) and ex-Bardot vocalist Tiffani Wood.

Up for grabs is a total prize pool of $1m.

Jai Courtney says: “Last year we were just getting started. This year in The Summit we are going sky high. What the trekkers put themselves through, and the effect it has on them as individuals, is truly special to witness. When humans are pushed to their limits and beyond, remarkable things happen.”

Our trekkers will once more be stripped of their creature comforts, plunging into the awe-inspiring landscapes of New Zealand’s South Island. Against this backdrop of natural marvels, a series of jaw-dropping challenges awaits, designed to test their courage and morals, and push their physical limits to breaking point.

With their backpacks containing an equal share of one million dollars, the group must reach the peak of a distant mountain in just 15 days to win the cash they’re carrying.

Get set for a whirlwind of drama, obstacles and strategic betrayal as they vie for the ultimate prize. Be careful who you trust. This season’s trekkers are:

Ava, 29 Aerospace Engineer WA
Charlotte, 35 Nurse NSW
David, 59 Theatre Director WA
Sharksey, 30 Unprofessional Poker Player Qld
Lochie, 31 Dairy Farmer Tas
Mat, 48 Sporting Legend Qld
Olympia, 31 Actor VIC
Phil, 43 Bali Bombing Survivor WA
Ros, 41 Farmer Qld
Simmone, 51 Actor and Single Mum NSW
Taylor, 28 Wharfie Vic
Theo, 49 Stay-at-home Dad Vic
Tiffani, 46 Former Pop Star NSW
Trisha, 43 Personal Trainer SA

Join us for an extraordinary expedition where unexpected alliances will form, shocking betrayals will play out, and all 14 mountain trekkers will vie for victory.

As they race to the pinnacle, who will survive to claim the prize money? Welcome to The Summit, a blockbuster action-adventure filled with cliff-hangers, where reaching the top is just the beginning.

Since the groundbreaking premiere of The Summit in 2023, the format co-developed between Nine and ESA has been sold to several European territories, including CBS in the U.S.A, with its premiere set for later this year.

The Summit is a 9Network and Endemol Shine Australia (A Banijay company) original series, produced by Endemol Shine Australia. 

7pm Sunday May 12 on Nine.
