Australian Survivor returns to our screens Sunday night and it’s the first time we have seen the Brains v Brains theme here.
They have done two US seasons with this theme, with a v Beauty for good measure, but Australia has wisely dropped the third tribe.
Tony Vlachos, a Brawn, won the first time in Cagayan (one of the most entertaining seasons) while Beauty Michelle Fitzgerald took out the second one (it was a controversial win but we have since learnt the edit did not show her full abilities).
Does this theme mean we will see more challenges with a mental emphasis? Survivor AU does way too many challenges of “push each other/heavy object until someone falls over”?
The setting if Outback Queensland also mixes things up. The thought of snakes would be terrify me, although perhaps they are more at risk of heatstroke.
Survivor screens on Ten on Sunday, Monday and Tuesday nights. Will you be watching?
