I Will Survive – To Commence on August 22 At 7pm on Network TEN
The reality show I Will Survive will kick off on Wednesday, August 22 on Network TEN at 7.00pm.
The show hosted by Hugh Sheridan is the search for Australia’s ultimate singer, dancer and actor. Actually let me clarify that it is looking for the best MALE singer, dancer and actor. The musical that they have chosen as the theme is Priscilla Queen of the Dessert.
The show also travels through the Australian outback recreating the original journey of Priscilla Queen of the Dessert.
The two main judges are Stephan Elliott, who looks like he is going to be good reality talent, and Jason Donovan who is a veteran of this genre.
Each week a female guest judge joins them to balance out the all male cast. These have included Rachael Taylor, Toni Collette, Asher Keddie, Kelly Rowland, and Rachel Griffiths.
Twelve Aussie blokes will be competing for the first prize is $250,000 plus a month in New York City. For some reason the publicity for the show is all about how blokey the guys are. They are filmed driving trucks, kicking footballs, and working in mines. Seriously who cares as long as they can sing, dance and act I don’t care if they are butch or not. Also it is Priscilla Queen of the Desert if they wanted to make it macho maybe a different musical should have been selected. If the talent is there the people will watch.
If you want to know who the top twelve guys are go here.
