Previous Australian Survivor,

Survivor: Exile Island
(aired on Nine Network)
Next Survivor: Cook Islands
(aired on Nine Network)

Celebrity Survivor, also known promotionally as Celebrity Survivor: Vanuatu and Australia's Celebrity Survivor, was an Australian television series that screened on the Seven Network in 2006, based on the popular reality television show Survivor. The new series joined the many celebrity-oriented reality programs already in their lineup, such as It Takes Two and Dancing with the Stars. It was hosted by Ian "Dicko" Dickson.

Guy Leech, the eventual winner, or "Sole Survivor", of the show donated AU$100,000 to the charity of his choice, Ride Aid Inc, with the other contestants' charities receiving AU$5000 each.

Although better received than the earlier Australian Survivor, Celebrity Survivor was still only a modest success in the ratings and a follow-up series has not materialised.

The Italian version of this format was aired for the first time in 2003 and became a hit show. Currently the 6th edition is being aired on Rai Due.

Production

While the Nine Network currently hold the rights to screen the U.S. version of Survivor, after the failure of their 2002 local Survivor project Australian Survivor the Seven Network found a loophole in their contract and obtained the rights to produce Celebrity Survivor.[1] Castaway Television, who produced Australian Survivor, was again involved in the production of this second Australian version Survivor.

The show was filmed on Éfaté Island in Vanuatu in the South Pacific. The series was filmed over twenty-five days, or three weeks, from late May to early June 2006, with promotional advertising beginning in July. From promos and footage shown on the Seven Network, it appeared that Celebrity Survivor borrowed many elements from the U.S. version's ninth season, Survivor: Vanuatu - Islands of Fire.

The one-hour show was rated PG (parental guidance recommended) and aired during Thursday nights on the Seven Network. The executive producer of Celebrity Survivor is David Mason, who also produces other shows on the Seven Network, such as Medical Emergency.

Promotion

Before the series began, host Dickson and a select few of the Celebrity Survivor contestants appeared on the Seven Network's breakfast news show Sunrise to promote their series. This paralleled to what occurs in the U.S. version, with the show being promoted on The Early Show, CBS' own breakfast news program and what happened during the Nine Network's Australian Survivor venture, with the series was featuring on the early morning show, Today and also on A Current Affair.

Amber Petty and Nicolle Dickson also appeared in television commercials for Olay Total Effects anti-wrinkle cream, which were broadcast during the series.

  • Ben: Ben, the only non-celebrity in the game was targeted and voted out unanimously. (5-1)
  • Fiona: After the unexpected tribal swap, Kakula and Moso tribal lines held strong. David fooled around during the immunity challenge, causing Moso to lose.

However, Amber decided to betray her alliance and take out Fiona, whom she also clahsed with. (3-2)

  • Wayne: After winning the crucial the reward and immunity challenges, Moso regained their power. At Kakula, Guy and Wayne targeted Imogen for weakness. Imogen and Nicolle trageted Wayne as they felt Guy would be more stronger in challenges. Gabrielle was torn between joining her original alliance or sided with the women. In the end, she betrayed Guy and Wayne, and helped Imogen and Nicolle take out Wayne. (3-2)
