Survivor Returning To Australia – It Is New Years Day Not April Fools Day

You would think  it was April Fool’s Day with this dodgy media release allegedly found at a campsite trumpeting the return of Survivor to Australia.

Survivor OZ who are the first to run the story are calling it a hoax, and I have to say I concur.

The release says that Survivor will be filming in Tasmania for three weeks in April.

Why it is bollocks:

  • The email address is definitely bodgy, and also the name appears to be a pun on Federal Member for Franklin’s name Julie Collins;
  • One season takes more than 21 days to film and because of the huge set up costs and logistics they normally film two seasons in the one location.
  • Also usually those locations are in an area where the weather is warmer and Tasmania in April would not be ideal; and
  • Locations for the show are kept under wraps.
Survivor was filmed in Australia in Season two of the show however it has never been filmed here since and with the high Australian dollar it would be unlikely it will be in 2013.

If the media release suggests it’s happening in early April it probably is an April Fool’s joke.

Would be good to see it in Australia again but doubt that this is true.
Why don’t they try an Aussie version once more?

AP Survivor is one reality show I couldn’t go on. Love to watch it but too hard to do. Rolf calls it Connivor.
PS I’ll go to the PO tomorrow and check about my mail.

Too easy. Have it in Canberra. Politicians there can survive on thirty five bucks a day!
