Update: Next Sequester Survivor Mini To Be International Showdown

It’s happening again…

With the calls of “ROOM LIMIT!” still ringing out across the internet, a new cast of Survivor contestants are ready to switch on their webcams and enter the game of Sequester.

As first announced last week, Sequester host and creator Audrey Middleton is bringing us another Survivor Mini on Saturday, June 20, at 8 pm (EST), with a brand new group of ex-castaways set to take on the highly-entertaining and unpredictable online reality game.

But that’s not all. Earlier today, Audrey officially revealed the twist for the upcoming Survivor Mini, and the game is getting an international flavor. The new cast, which was once again put together with the help of myself and Parade’s Mike Bloom, will feature Survivor players from the United States, Australia, New Zealand, and South Africa.

The first Survivor Mini took place on May 23 and was a huge success, at various points landing in the top Twitter trending topics in the US and Canada. The first game was won by Ghost Island‘s Kellyn Bechtold.

What is Sequester? Sequester is a reality game (existing in both an online format and in-person) created by former Big Brother contestant Audrey Middleton. During the pandemic lockdown, Audrey has been hosting special one-night “Sequester Minis,” such as “RHAP Night” with various podcasters from Rob Has A Podcast, as well as “Big Brother US vs. Big Brother Canada.”

How does Sequester work? There are similarities to Survivor, in the sense that players must vote one another out and can earn immunity in the form of the Locus of Safety (a sort of Hidden Immunity Idol). The difference is, it all takes place virtually via video call. The 20 players begin the game separated into five different chat rooms, each with its own occupancy limit. When a new round begins, players can jump from room to room to strategize, make deals, and form alliances. The twist is, each new round has a different voting format, making the game unpredictable and keeping the players on their toes. The last seven eliminated players make up the jury to determine the overall winner.

Stay tuned to the official Sequester Twitter for all the latest info.

UPDATE: A previous version of this article said the cast would be a mix of old school and new school with winners and non-winners. That might not accurately reflect the final cast as people potentially drop out and the cast shifts.
