10 has used today’s Upfronts to unveil its content offering for 2022 with oldies and new programming all on the menu.
Daniel Monaghan, senior vice president, content and programming, ViacomCBS Australia and New Zealand said: “Over the past 18 months we’ve grown our viewing share and once again proven ourselves to be leaders in escapist entertainment across all platforms.
“Our linear free-to-air channels boast the youngest audience of any commercial network, with 30 per cent of our viewers under 39. Not only that, but we also have the most female audience – an astonishing 61 per cent – of any commercial network in Australia.
“I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!, Australian Survivor, MasterChef Australia, The Masked Singer Australia, The Project, Gogglebox Australia and Have You Been Paying Attention? continue to rule the under 50s demographic and dominate the national conversation.
“This year Network 10 has also attracted its biggest ever digital audience, with minutes viewed on 10 Play up 10 per cent year-on-year.
“In 2022, our flagship franchises are returning bigger and better than ever, and they’ll be complemented by premiere series like Hunted Australia, Would I Lie To You? Australia and First Dates Australia.
“We promise to maintain our impressive trajectory with a strong, consistent line-up of premium content for all audiences, across all channels and platforms.”
On January 3, Julia Morris and Dr Chris Brown will return to the Aussie jungle for their eighth season of I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!.

“I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! is the perfect show for summer. Expect loads of laughs, a few tears, some mind-blowing surprises and the most insane challenges ever seen on Australian TV.”
Following I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! the award-winning Australian Survivor will return for its most revolutionary season ever.
In Australian Survivor: Blood v Water, players will compete in pairs.
Adding a further level of intrigue, each pair is bound by blood: identical twins, married couples, in-laws, siblings and cousins. Survivor is ultimately an individual game… so what happens when you play bound to another player? Is it possible to betray the ones you love?
It’s unquestionably the best food show on the planet – and in 2022 MasterChef Australia makes a triumphant return – with a very tasty twist.

Once again, the action will unfold under the keen eye of judges Melissa Leong, Jock Zonfrillo and Andy Allen.
Leong said: “We are back for another action-packed season of thrills, chills and kitchen spills… we couldn’t be more pumped! Add to that a handful of new MasterChef foodies going head-to-head with beloved characters from the MasterChef universe over the years… and then of course there’s JULIE GOODWIN!
“If ever there was a time to feel connected through food, it’s now: MasterChef Australia is the hit of nostalgia, inspiration and feel-good fun we need as nation and Jock, Andy and I couldn’t be more excited to serve up a generous and heartfelt serving to audiences in 2022.”
Love guru Osher Günsberg will be back at the helm for all the romance, drama, roses and twinkling fairy lights of The Bachelor and The Bachelorette Australia in 2022.
Günsberg said: “Get set for more love stories, more luxurious dates, and more whispering when we return with The Bachelor and The Bachelorette Australia in 2022. We redefined dating shows with The Bachelorette Australia this year, and it’s set to be even better next season as we head to a major moment for this landmark franchise.
“10 seasons of any show is a major milestone, and as we hit that landmark with The Bachelor Australia, I’m just so excited to be a part of telling Australia’s favourite love story in a new and exciting way.”
