From 'Dirty Harry' to Shane Gould: Just every Australian Survivor: All Stars cast member.

Survivor hit our screens tonight and we were almost inspired to do a pushup in celebration. Almost.

This year, Australian Survivor: All Stars brought back former contestants from previous seasons, meaning the cast is impeccably cunning, devious and already well-versed with the lay of the land. They know how to chop open a coconut and can make a mean meal out of rice and… well, more rice.

We now know all 24 contestants and we are in for a treat. Crowd favourites Dirty Harry (Harry Hills), Mat Rogers and Lydia Lassila are back, as are former winners, Shane Gould and Jericho Malabonga.

Watch the trailer for Australian Survivor: All Stars 2020. Post continues below.

Video by Channel 10

Former emergency-room physician Jonathan LaPaglia is back as host of the show, bringing his signature wry, deadpan tribal commentary. Although Survivor icon, Luke Toki isn’t returning to the island, fans will be able to watch him and James Mathison on Channel 10’s online Australian Survivor After Show.

Here’s a look at all the cast members.

GET EXCITED.

Brooke Jowett, 27 – Australian Survivor (2016)

Former model and sales executive, Melbourne-based Brooke Jowett applied for Australian Survivor after going through a self-confessed mid-life crisis. This season will see her united with her former Survivor best friend, Flick, who betrayed her during a Final Five Tribal elimination. We can’t wait.

Nick Iadanza, 31 – Australian Survivor (2016)

Adelaide highschool teacher, Nick Iadanza entered the game as a Survivor super fan and was determined to win. Not only did he watch every episode of US Survivor multiple times he also had a Survivor-themed 21st birthday party. Scoring a spot on the first season of Australian Survivor, he was quickly ousted as a ‘snake’ and failed to gain the trust of the tribe.

Phoebe Timmins, 30 – Australian Survivor (2016)

A criminal lawyer with experience working in criminal cartel enforcement, Phoebe Timmins knows how to read a person and work under pressure. Her Survivor debut saw her just miss tribal merge after a failed blindside attempt, hopefully, she’ll have what it takes to execute her moves this season.

Felicity “Flick” Egginton, 27 – Australian Survivor (2016)

Making it to the Top 4 in the 2016 season of Survivor, Felicity Egginton is a force to be reckoned with. Her social game meant she managed to vote out all of her original Saanapu tribemates, making her the highest-placing member of her tribe.

Aaron ‘AK’ Knight, 32 – Australian Survivor (2017)

Wedding DJ and die-hard Survivor fan, Aaron Knight went too hard too fast, and his ambition and determination ruffled a few feathers. Although he managed to stay on until Day 28, a tribe-switch meant he was evicted in a near-unanimous vote.

Lachlan ‘Locky’ Gilbert, 30 – Australian Survivor (2017)

An avid hiker and explorer, there’s no denying that Lachlan Gilbert will dominate in challenges. While this will put a target on his back, Locky’s challenge will be to see if he can form strong enough alliances to keep him in the game.

Only time will tell.

Jericho Malabonga, 28 – Australian Survivor (2017)

Season 2 winner Jericho Malabonga might seem like your local friendly cookie entrepreneur (his words, not ours), but don’t let that fool you. He managed to remain under the radar and used his charisma and charm to forge alliances, before taking out the Survivor crown. Now, let’s see if he can do it all again.

Henry Nicholson, 29 – Australian Survivor (2017)

You might remember Henry Nicholson for outright lying about being a hippie yoga instructor to maintain a ‘calm, laidback chill’ disguise but the real Henry was quickly exposed. He might not know the difference between a downward dog and a crow pose but we can expect to see some big bold moves from the South Australian.

Mark ‘Tarzan’ Herlaar, 54 – Australian Survivor (2017)

His heart of gold was Mark Herlaar’s undoing. An excellent survivalist, fire maker and fisherman – very important when you’re stuck on an island – he gave his immunity idol to another contestant, Tessa O’Halloran, who had her head on the Tribal Council chopping block and was instead ousted himself.

You can bet he’s not going to make the same mistake twice.

Lydia Lassila, 37 – Champions vs. Contenders (2018)

Despite her zen exterior and iron-clad will that would prevail in even the most extreme challenges, the Olympic freestyle skier was considered too big a physical threat, with her fellow All Stars campmates, Mat and Shane, responsible for her demise. Now she’s back and hungry for revenge and we’re dying to see it.

Mat Rogers, 43 – Champions vs. Contenders (2018)

Nicknamed the ‘Godfather,’ Mat Rogers was responsible for one of the strongest Champion’s alliances to date, with Steve Willis (AKA The Commando) and Lydia Lassila, who he later evicted in a Tribal Council blindside. He ultimately got a taste of his own medicine and had his torch snuffed out despite his very own immunity idol.

Shane Gould, 63 – Champions vs. Contenders (2018)

She might be 63 years old, but Shane Gould won the 2018 season of Survivor: Champions vs Contenders. The former Olympic swimmer managed to stay under the radar during Tribal Councils before winning the Survivor title thanks to her impeccable social game and ability to hunt down immunity idols. However, this time she won’t be able to shy away from the spotlight.

David Genat, 40 – Champions vs. Contenders (2019)

Yes. Sneaky, sneaky David Genat is back for round two and we’d bet our last coconut that he’s googled “how to make a fake immunity idol” at least 17 times. While he played a stellar social game in last year’s Survivor, he was blindsided with an immunity idol in his possession. Hopefully, he’s learnt his lesson this time.

Harry Hills, 31 – Champions vs. Contenders (2019)

AKA Dirty Harry. He lied about being a dad, he orchestrated some of his season’s biggest blindsides and despite having a massive target on his back, he managed to place in the top three. The ice cream maker is in the game with his former campmate David and we’re hoping the two form some kind of brothers-in-arms alliance. Can you just imagine the drama??

Abbey Holmes, 28 – Champions vs. Contenders (2019)

Abbey was a major physical threat in season four. She ended up coming in fifth place after Luke Toki strategically blindsided her at a tribal council.

Daisy Richardson, 24 – Champions vs. Contenders (2019)

Daisy may be the youngest player on All Stars, but proved herself to be a force to be reckoned with in season four. This year, she is coming back stronger and more determined to win.

Michelle proved herself a strategic player in season two, having made it into the top four. She’s definitely a major threat and one to look out for this season.
