10’s version of The Challenge Australia is already getting some much-needed buzz, which could make the series a rating hit.
The show’s premise is Survivor meets Love Island. Celebrities do challenges but also navigate their relationships with each other. It’s already making headlines because there are rumours that Konrad Bein-Stephen and a former Bachie alum are hooking up on the show.
It’s pretty accurate to suggest that if a show is getting discussed in pop culture before the premiere, it’s set to resonate more with audiences, particularly key demographics. So, if 10 is chasing the youth audience, they might get those eyeballs when you consider the Bein-Stephen romance is the roast and toast of Instagram.
But primarily, the show also seems pretty fun! Basically, they may have survived the Australian outback and jungle; attempted to find love in a mansion, at first sight, on an island and in paradise; handled the heat in the kitchen; ninja’d their way through obstacle courses; come out on top in the ring, the pool, a camera-filled house and on the ‘gram; but who has what it takes to win 10’s highly-anticipated reality juggernaut The Challenge Australia?
