Survivor is one of the most popular reality shows ever created and as it enters it’s 30th season in the United States, M-Net today confirmed that a sixth season of Survivor South Africa will be returning to their small screen in 2018.

For the sixth season of Survivor SA, M-Net is looking for players who are fans of the local and international series and have what it takes not only to survive harsh conditions on a remote island, but who are also ready to create fireworks in their tribes and win the game with their unique, strategic game play.

Nico Panagio will return as host and while the location is still to be confirmed, the season is expected to be the biggest yet. Contestants will battle it out in the hopes of becoming the sole survivor and winning the grand prize of R1 million.

Want to be a part of the new season? Online video entries are open until 26 November, so get creative and tell us why you should be picked as a member of the Survivor SA tribe! Eligible entrants must be over the age of 18 as of 30 November 2017. All you need to do is visit to submit your video entry.

“M-Net plans to keep viewers glued to their screens next year with a variety of blockbuster local shows and we are extremely excited to have Survivor SA as part of this slate,” says M-Net’s Head of Publicity, Lani Lombard. “Viewers have been begging us for a while to create another local version of what has become known as ‘the greatest game on Earth’. So, if you are a brave, bold strategiser, grab this opportunity to become the country’s next Ultimate Survivor.”
