As stated in the video preview, the season will take place in Samoa over 55 days. Amongst the 24 Aussie castaways revealed in the preview is a Criminal Prosecutor, a Teacher, and an Intelligence Analyst. There is also a strong focus on the conflict between those that are willing to lie, cheat and steal to win the game and those who value honesty and mateship. Aussie actor, Jonathan LaPaglia, seen in the video, will host the show.
Australian Survivor is expected to air late August/early September.
