Survivor South Pacific Has An Air Date On Nine
Good news for Survivor fans with news the new series Survivor South Pacific will air on start on Nine on the Tuesday 27 September at 9.30pm.
We will be two weeks behind the airing of the episodes in the US, however Nine in the past has screened double episodes to catch up. Also I believe by announcing the date it will air should stop some of the diehard viewers from downloading it from overseas sites.

Brandon Hantz is evil Russel Hantz nephew which brings an interesting twist to the show. He is 19 years old and is a father of two. Clearly he missed out on going on Teen Dads. Will he keep his familial link a secret? Only problem for him is he has Hantz tattooed on his body, so when he strips which is inevitable his other tribe members might click.
Also go to TV.com to see a rundown on them and some pictures and yes there is some eye candy and I am not just talking about host Jeff Probst….
This time the series will being back old favourites Coach and Ozzy. Will the tribe members keep them around considering Boston Rob won last season? The issue is Ozzy can win challenges for his tribe, and as everyone knows you need to be the stronger tribe going into the merge.
Redemption Island will also stay as a feature of the series. This is where an eliminated tribal member will get a chance to re-enter the stage at some stage.
