Australian Survivor is the Australian adaptation of the international blockbuster reality game show Survivor. Like the other versions of the format, Australian Survivor features a group of contestants who are left behind in an isolated located where they need to get essentials like food, water, and shelter for themselves. Meanwhile, the all compete in varying challenges in order to win awards or to gain immunity for the next elimination round. The contestants themselves will take regular votes on who should leave the location next with the last person left getting the title of “Sole Survivor” and a money prize of A$ 500'000. Besides the standard Australian Survivor format, the Network Ten also produced an All-Star edition featuring former contestants. Production of a second edition of this version was postponed for months due to the coronavirus pandemic in the first half of 2020.
Australian Survivor on TVCatchUpAustralia.com
Australian Survivor is an Australian reality game show that originated from the original American and internationally hugely popular show Survivor. The premise for the Australian version is very much comparable to the one of other international versions of the show. A group of people is left to survive on their own in a deserted location, such as Whaler's Way on the Southern Australian Eyre Peninsula, or Upolu on Samoa.
The participants in the Survivor need to complete challenges in order to get rewards to help them survive on their own, and to win immunity from elimination from the show. The participants vote amongst each other until the "Sole Australian Survivor" is left to take home the A$500'000 cash prize.
Never miss an episode of Australian Survivor again
Australian Survivor aired for the first time in the year 2002, at the Nine Network. At the time the show was not renewed for a second season, although the Seven Network did launch a Celebrity Survivor Australia in 2006. In 2016 Ten picked up the rights for Australian Survivor, thus picking up where the first season on Nine in 2002 had left off. This history makes Australian Survivor one of the few shows in the history of Australian TV to have aired on three different major networks.
The first season of Australian Survivor took place at Whaler's Way on the Eyre Peninsula in South Australia and was won by former Australian rules footballer Rob Dickson. He competed with 15 other contestants over a total span on the Peninsula of 39 days and ended up winning a $500'000 cash prize and a Ford V6 Escape. The Celebrity Australian Survivor edition from 2006 was won by Guy Leech, a former Ironman surf lifesaving champion. He beat 11 other participants and spent a total of 25 days in Efate, on Vanuatu. Guy collected a $100'000 cash prize for the charity of his choice, Ride Aid Inc. All other contestants received $5'000 which they could donate to a charity of their own choosing.
