Saturdays and Sundays after Strictly (8-ish),
BBC1 and iPlayer
21 years since we last did it, the BBC resurrects Survivor with Joel Dommett, 18 players will try and survive the elements AND EACH OTHER for 34 days to win £100,000… cash. a £900,000 reduction in prize from the original, but six days fewer so that’s alright then.
I mean we all know what Survivor is, I’ve written already that I think this ought to be perfectly decent but I think it’s been scheduled quite badly. We have yet to find out how much Joel Dommett will lean in to Jeff Probst-isms but I’m prepared to kick my telly in if he uses “zip”. A journalist will inevitably write something trite like “the viewers have spoken” when it starts clashing with I’m a Celeb in November. I’m expecting this series have basic, light twists like hidden idols but I don’t think you’ll be seeing Mario Party like you get in the US.
I have set up a #survivorchat channel in the Discord, but feel free to let us know what you think in the comments.
