Could these American Survivor legends handle Australia?

The new Australian Survivor promo might have shed some light on the new castaways, but there might be one huge surprise in store yet to come. The announcement of a American Survivor legend.

CBS will be sending another American castaway to compete in Australia, but if Russel Hantz couldn’t handle the heat could the other American Survivor legends?

If the last season of Champions vs. Contenders is anything to go by then we should be expecting a shock announcement of an American Survivor legend. Last season, Survivor Villain, Russel Hantz was introduced as a champion of Australian Survivor to everyone’s surprise. We also know that the new promo was only teasing us by revealing a few of the new castaways. Since then 5 more castaways have been revealed making it 4 champions and 4 contenders. This means only a half of this season’s cast have been revealed, at least.

A season of American Survivor usually feature between 16-20 castaways. Last year channel 10’s Australian Survivor jacked that up to a whopping 24 contestants. So, we could be waiting for another 16 players to be revealed.

Allegedly, Simon Black, Aussie Rules legend, and TV’s Pia Miranda – most of us remember her as the star of Looking for Alibrandi – are confirmed contestants that are yet to be announced. But the word apparently heard from the mouths of the producers suggest we may be seeing the return of an all-time favourite Survivor.

According to sources, a deal was struck with CBS and Australian Survivor during the acquisition of Channel 10 which extended casting calls to former American castaways. Does that mean we are definitely getting an American castaway every season, or even next season? No…

However, channel 10 are funneling a lot of money into Survivor as now it is considered the network’s flagship show. 10 have already ordered two new seasons to be filmed this year, proving that they’re going all-in on the hit reality TV series.

American Survivor legends

Now that CBS owns channel 10 Australian Survivor is no longer just a franchised version of the series and CBS have huge stakes in the series success. This means they may want to inject some excitement to boost the ratings and send some American Survivor legends our way. But, let’s be honest… these legends don’t stand a chance against us Aussies; even Russel Hantz couldn’t handle the heat!

Here are 8 American Survivor legends we might see on the next season of Australian Survivor.

Note from the author: I had a brain-fart and stupidly confused Edge of Extinction for Redemption Island. My sincerest apologies. Now, I am going to hide in a dark corner somewhere…

Joe Anglim

Joe Anglim’s hungry for that victory. It’s been 12 months since filming concluded for Edge of Extinction so we’re sure he’s well rested and rearing to go. What happens next, I guess, is just up to his fiancee.

Sierra Dawn-Thomas

Former Survivor favourite and now fiancee of Joe Anglim, Sierra has proved her game by making it to the final 5. Wouldn’t it be lovely to see her go head-to-head against her future husband on Australian Survivor?

Malcolm Freberg

Freberg has competed 3 times and once made it to the final 4. Freberg’s hidden immunity idol-hunting prowess got him far in the game. But, despite also being a challenge beast, Freberg has never won the title of Sole Survivor… still, something tells me he hasn’t given up just yet.

Kelley Wentwroth

Kelley Wentworth was already a fan favourite before she returned to Edge of Extinction. Now, even more than ever, her fans are behind her and begging her to get back on the horse. She has what it takes.

Victoria Baamonde

Victoria Baamonde may seem like a strange name to have on this list, but I think she clearly showed just how dangerous of a player she actually is. She made a lot of the biggest calls on Edge of Extinction and somehow managed to remain completely off the radar. It would be great to see her compete against fairdinkum Aussies.

Ozzy Lusth

Ozzy is a true Survivor veteran. He has competed 4 times and was a runner up his first season in 2006. He now has a target on his back for being one of the most dangerous men to play Survivor. Ozzy managed to win five out of his season’s six individual Immunity Challenges, tying the record for most Immunity Challenges won by a single player in a single season. At 37 Ozzy is still in terrific form and I’m sure we will see him return to the game.

Rick Devens

Rick Devens out-played almost everyone last season of American Survivor and he would have easily won if he only practiced his fire making skills. I believe Devens deserve another shot and should head down under to have another crack at it.

Parvati Shallow

All-time favourite and Soul Survivor  Parvati Shallow playing on the next season of Australian Survivor? | Sausage Roll

Parvati Shallow is the highest ranking player, revered for her unrivaled Survivor skills. She became the Maleficent of the Survivor world and earned her spot as a villain on Heroes vs.Villains. That season she out-played, out-smarted and out-lasted all other castaways. It has been awhile since Parvati has been in the limelight – taking care of her adorable baby girl – but her Instagram posts suggests that she is ready for another challenge. So let’s hope she’s keen for an Aussie revival.
