What we know so far!

TRIBES – Our Super-Duper-Fan sleuthing through the first two adverts suggests this season looks like it will begin with 2-tribes of 12, changing from last seasons 3-tribes of 8. The two colours seen so far are Green and Magenta. This suggestion should remove speculation the season will be themed and that Australian Survivor are looking to consolidate on last season.

Marooning – This image released via the official SurvivorAU twitter of Jonathan LaPaglia is highly likely from the first episode. Guns poised and fully loaded for the upcoming season! During the off-season in our “Tweaks Baby Tweaks” podcast we called for a marooning and it looks like our Survivor prayers have been answered. Jonathan looks to be standing on a Barge/Boat with essential items such as Taro Root and possibly Papayas in the background.

Weather – Initial weather reports suggested a rough start for the new Australian Survivor contestants with heavy rain forecast over the first week.
