Australian Survivor is finally back! The reality show is starting up again tonight with a new format and a bunch of familiar faces.
The new season will see the show split into two sides, Champions and Contenders, as 12 public figures take on 12 everyday Australians in a number of challenges for a prize of $500,000 and the title of Sole Survivor.
The participants will spend up to 55 days on a remote beach in Fiji with Jonathan LaPaglia returning to the series as host.
Among the familiar faces in this year’s season are personal trainer Steve “Commando” Willis, Women’s AFL player Moana Hope and former Miss Universe Australia Monika Radulovic.
