Survivor: Nicaragua To Premiere On Channel Nine On Tuesday 28 September


Clearly Australian fans of Survivor must have been giving out some good karma as Channel Nine is putting on Survivor Nicaragua in a timely manner and in a great timeslot.

Host Jeff Probst and twenty castaways will be on our screens at 9.00pm on Tuesday the 28th September.It is the usual scenario of a remote and rugged location where they will be outwitting and outplaying (which is the polite way of saying scheming and conniving) for the $1 million prize money.

However, the twist is the 20 castaways will be divided into two tribes of 10, comprised of older and younger competitors.

The Espada Tribe, made up of over-40s, includes a dog trainer, a fireman, a swimming coach and a real estate executive. They must prove they have the life experience and knowledge to ultimately help them outwit and outlast their younger competitors.

The La Flor Tribe, made up of under-30s, includes a physical education teacher, a club promoter and a medical student. They will have to use their youth and physicality to outplay and outlast their elders.

Interestingly enough it appears a lot of the contestants on the series have been recruited according to Reality Blurred (Spoiler). However beware there is probably a spoiler in the article.

If you are a reality TV fan this is must watch TV.

This location would have been much more exciting in the late ’70s/early ’80s. Welcome to Survivor Contra…your mission is to rid the nation of the pinko, socialist menace that is the Sandanistas. Just don’t get caught taking Oliver North into your tribe.

and one of the contestants has a prosphetic leg which is excellent for unmasking the biggotry and ignorant attitudes of many of the other contestants

Duke Nukem will put up the post overnight. Sorry about late post, blame the Australia’s Next Top Model debacle. But the first few episodes were a cracker.
