TEN’s spectacular new family entertainment series is set on the stunning and rugged South Pacific island of Samoa, where contestants will be deprived of basic comforts and must build their own shelter, light their own fires, gather their own food and fend for themselves. And it's returning for a spectacular Season 2 soon on TEN!
Australian Survivor sees 24 tough and tenacious people marooned on a tropical island with little more than the clothes on their backs and the drive to be the sole survivor.
For up to 55 days the contestants must outwit, outplay and outlast each other to win half a million dollars and title of sole survivor.
As they catch their own food and order their own society, the castaways must compete in increasingly difficult tests of strategy, mateship and skill.
Their bodies will be pushed to the extreme, competing in physically demanding and epic challenges, while mentally playing their way through cunning and strategic game play.
Moral values are put to the test as the castaways contemplate whether or not to lie and manipulate their way through a strategic battlefield of game play.
Reward Challenges offer the contestants much needed opportunities to win luxury items, while Immunity Challenges enable contestants and tribes to win immunity from an elimination.
Eliminations take place at Tribal Council, an intense and emotional venue where each player must cast a silent vote to eliminate one of their own.
The series is hosted by one of Australia’s leading actors, Jonathan LaPaglia.
