The countdown to the highly anticipated launch of Australian Survivor has begun.
Hosted by Jonathan LaPaglia and set in the stunning and rugged tropical paradise of Samoa, Australian Survivor pits 24 Australians against each other in the ultimate test of survival.
A high school teacher, a criminal lawyer, a firefighter, a law student, an air traffic controller and a financial analyst are just some of the contestants selected from over 15,000 applicants.
Over 55 days, these driven and determined contestants must outwit, outlast and outplay each other to become the sole Survivor.
Part docu-soap, part competition, part human drama, Survivor is the world’s most talked about television program. It is the show that launched the reality genre of television programming almost 20 years ago and it remains the centrepiece of broadcasting schedules around the world.
Network Ten Chief Programming Officer, Beverley McGarvey, said: “The production of Australian Survivor is well underway and we cannot wait to bring this big, exciting and compelling new series to viewers later this year.
“Jonathan is a brilliant host. Samoa is a spectacular and challenging location. And our 24 contestants are amazing. There is no doubt that Australian Survivor will be one of the television events of 2016.”
