Australian Survivor starts Wed

After a cracking second season Ten has decided to theme its third shot at the franchise Champions versus Contenders.

Fans are worried we’ll see shades of the first season, where “mateship” was regarded as more important than strategy by a cast that was largely unversed in the show, resulting in the more interesting and conniving players being targeted. Or, in some cases, people voting by picking names at random – urgh!
The “Champions” cast includes women’s AFL player Moana Hope, Olympic champ Shane Gould and Commando Steve AKA Mr Michelle Bridges.



Word is we get two episodes the first week, FOUR the second (way to kill interest) and Mon, Tues the next (The Badgerlor will air Wed, Thurs).
Australian Survivor starts Wed, 7.30pm on Ten and continues the following night

    • I just saw that announced on FB.

      I don’t know how I feel about seeing Russell again. Hopefully he left his nephew at home…

    • As a relatively newie to Survivor (only about 6 years) I know nothing about Russell except that he is well known from older seasons. Will be interested to see why.

  1. Really not a fan of Russell.
    I reckon he will either go at first opportunity or be kept as a goat til the end, with ppl just hoping the jury won’t vote for him!
    Just saw the part about the schedule, 6 episodes in 10 days. I can see that working if those episodes keep the game moving, with eliminations in most episodes etc. But if only 2 ppl go in that time etc, ppl will turn off quick smart.

  2. I don’t know who Russell is. If living under a rock means not knowing about his kind, I’m happy.

    Commando would have to be sick of taking Michelle Bridges’ garbage out by now. I expect he’s “commando” of not very much at all these days, launching assaults on piles of nappies..

    • BDD, he is a total douche who likes to do stuff like hide people’s clothes. He teams up with young female model types and has twice made it far but never wins because of his poor social game. He likes to play up his redneckness but he’s actually rich

    • He’s one of those types who *thinks* he’s brilliant, and when he loses (which he often does), he blames everybody else for not realising how brilliant he is.

      It’s actually because of his terrible social game, and he’s just a repugnant, vile person. But he always seems to forget that.

      He actually has a nephew who popped up twice, but the kid just had issues. Casting him seemed very exploitative, and was one of the show’s grossest moments. The guy just needed qualified psychiatric help, but instead, they cast him *twice* because, “Hey look, he’s related to Russell!” Probst once had to physically restrain him before he assaulted one of his tribe-mates. I still haven’t quite forgiven the show for that.

      So, yeah.
