Friend or foe? Australian Survivor: Blood V Water is headed to screens in 2022, with the famed reality series featuring a serious twist.
In an Australian-first, family members will enter the competition as pairs before battling it out against each other. After all, there can only be one Sole Survivor.
Fans of the OG Survivor in the US will be more than familiar with the Blood V Water format. The theme has been featured twice in its 41-season run — once titularly in 2013, and again with Survivor: San Juan del Sur the following year.
In a trailer released by Network Ten on Monday, fans of the show got a glimpse into some of the personalities heading up the series. And lo and behold, famed influencer and former mummy-blogger Sophie Cachia is among them!
Appearing in the teaser raring to go, the 31-year-old mused that she’ll have outwit, outplay and outlast her sister during the competition.
“I love my sister so much,” she said. “But out here, you’re going to have to take out your loved one at some stage.”
However, at the time, the mum-of-two vehemently denied that she was involved with the series.
Australian Survivor: Blood V Water Will Feature More Well-Known Names
Sophie Cachia isn’t the only well-known name, or face, to appear in the Australian Survivor: Blood V Water trailer.
America’s first-ever two-time winner Sandra Diaz-Twine has landed Down Under with her daughter, Alanna ‘Nina’ Twine.
The 47-year-old won the first two seasons she appeared on, played in a subsequent two, and mentored Survivors in Island of the Idols.
“I’m the Queen of Survivor,” she said in a voiceover. “I have a secret weapon. My baby girl Nina. Y’all better look out, because I taught her well.”
Also returning for a stab at the win are Mark Wales and Samantha Gash, who met on the Aussie iteration in 2017 before tying the knot two years later.
“Playing Survivor with your spouse is a very dangerous idea,” Mark voiced. “But the good thing is, if one of us wins we both win.”
As well as being crowned Australia’s Sole Survivor, the winner will take home a hefty prize of $500,000.
Australian Survivor: Blood V Water begins in 2022.
