It’s been more than a year since the last season, an All Stars edition, appeared on TV.

Network Ten had planned for another, regular civilian season to appear later in 2020, but travel restrictions and safety concerns brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic meant the season was postponed.

Just like the rest of us, Survivor had to adjust to a new world.

With the three previous seasons being filmed in Fiji, locations had to change.

The latest season has been filmed in Cloncurry, in far-north Queensland.

Cloncurry is known for its’ hot climate, and even holds the record for the highest temperature recorded in Australia at 53.1 °C.

Although it’s not the tropical setting of the regular seasons, we expect our new contestants will be set to sweat in the upcoming season.

This season has also been announced as having the theme ‘Brains V Brawn’, meaning the contestants will be split along mental and physical strengths.

“Don’t be fooled into thinking it’s an unfair match,” Channel Ten has written of the new series.

“The Brains are outstanding in their chosen field and there’s much more to them than meets the eye. Dismissing them as simply book smart is the quickest way to get blindsided,” they explain of the Brains team.

“Think Brawn are all muscle, no hustle? Think again. These castaways may be the doers in their professions but as we all know in this game; physical strength can only get you so far.”

Only three contestants have been announced so far, and we are keenly waiting for more names.

Dani is a Prison Officer who will be joining the Brawn Tribe.

George, who will join the Brains Tribe, is a political staffer who is used to pulling people’s strings.

Finally, AFL player Gavin Wanganeen has also been announced as joining the Brawn Tribe.

He hopes to represent his community and become the first Indigenous person to win the show.

We’re looking forward to catching them on Channel 10 in two weeks!
