Light up your tribal torches and prepare yourself for a return to the tropics because Australian Survivor is back, and it’s set to wash onto our shores with a new crop of castaways sooner than you’d think. 

Returning to the South Pacific paradise of Samoa, a new breed of competitors will be pitted against each other, as they all attempt to outwit, outplay, and most importantly outlast their fellow competitors.

In this new struggle for survival, and half a million in prize money, the bigwigs will battle it out against the battlers in the world’s greatest game.

Speaking with New Idea about the new “hardcore” season, longtime host and self-described “Rebel” Jonathan LaPaglia revealed that fans tuning in should “expect epic blindsides.”

“The Titans tribe is made up of players who are at the top of their field, the overachievers, whilst the Rebels have forged their own path in life, they’re the rule breaks. The Titans are used to calling the shots and being in charge so they may struggle working together, whereas the Rebels are not used to having anyone in charge!”

“I can say there are plenty [of epic tribal councils and blindsides] and they won’t disappoint.”

Who has been cast on Australian Survivor in 2024?

Whilst the previous few seasons of Survivor have included a mixture of new and returning players, the new season will feature an entirely unknown group of Australians keen to battle it out for the title of Sole Survivor. 

Speaking with our sister publication TV Week in March 2023, Australian Survivor Executive Producer David Forster shared some further insight into the casting process in recent seasons. 

“We love our returning Survivor family – they are great to watch and have a lot of unfinished business in the game. Having said this, we will always open the game to new players as we have always done (with the exclusion of All-Stars who are all returnees).”

What is the theme for Australian Survivor in 2024? 

We’ve seen the likes of Champions vs Contenders, Brains vs Brawns, Blood vs Water, Heroes vs Villains, and even an All-Stars season – but for season 11, the theme is *drum roll please* Titans vs Rebels.  

The Titans have been described as both “physically intimidating and utterly ruthless.” 

Facing off against these Titans are our Rebels – a group of individuals “who live life by a different set of rules.” 

According to Channel 10, a Titan is an individual who “has achieved a great feat against all odds” whilst a Rebel is someone who routinely goes “against the grain, sticking it to the man.”
