I hope the champions are mostly ordinary people who have done extraordinary things, that possibly earned them some public recognition. We don't need 4 sport stars, 3 tv models/actors and a retired politicians etc.

I am hoping that this season will be good like the past two seasons, but celebrities make me skeptical...

I think celebrities will be a GREAT idea!

Football stars, cricketers, singers, actors, politicians, etc, lets celebrate!  :conf:

Well, we had some champions last season imo. I would consider Sarah (model) or Ziggy (olympian) as champions, and they were both awesome to see, so if all the champions are like them, bring it on! :)

We could also see Lee (Ex pro cricketer) and maybe Matt (Magician/Mentalist) from 2016 as champions.

I'm not mad for the twist, as a non-australian person, they will all be ordinary and new people for me. xD

SO apparently filming now...

And look who may be back?


Quote
Inside Survivor has learned from multiple sources that three-time Survivor player Russell Hantz will compete on the upcoming season of Australian Survivor, which is currently filming in Fiji. And while we’re still hoping this is just a really late April Fools joke, it unfortunately looks to be true.

Read more here:

And should this be called season 3 or 5? What will AUS TV call it? ???

I don't like Russell at all, but this news actually amuses me. If it's true, I'm for it.

OMG how did I like, TOTALLY miss this?

Filming in Fiji! Thank god, they've moved on from Samoa!

I call it Season 5 (it actually is), however Channel 10 (which is owned by CBS now) is calling it Season 3 (as it has aired seasons in 2016 and 2017)

And when I think of 'Champions v Contenders', I think of ex-AFL players, ex-politicians, against ordinary Australian people (like me :))

Please don't make this a season of Americans, just like Bachelor in Paradise :res:
