SBS producer reveals the surprising reason survival show Alone Australia ... trends now

A producer for SBS reality survival series Alone Australia has revealed the surprising why the program is filmed in colder climates. 

Season one of the grueling reality show saw 10 survivalists contend with the rugged terrain of Southwest Tasmania, while the current season sees another group dropped in the wilderness on New Zealand's South Island. 

While shows like Survivor are usually filmed in hot, tropical locations, Executive Producer Riima Daher says Alone Australia has chosen a different tack. 

'[Alone Australia wants conditions to] get tougher and tougher, to really test [contestants] so that nature's upping the ante as they go... Typically speaking winter sells that best,' Daher told TV Tonight on Sunday. 

'You can actually see the season changing rather than rely on participants to tell you. It's just wonderful for nature to squeeze and make it tougher and tougher, so that only the toughest survive towards the end,' she added.

On last week's episode, personal trainer Andreas became the first in the 2024 season to acquire red meat after catching a possum and bludgeoning it to death on the seventh night of the competition.

Andeas, 42, was sitting by his campfire when he heard a sound in the bush.

Quietly, he crept into the wilderness to investigate, armed only with his shovel, before he came across his prey and killed the animal.

Speaking to TV Tonight, Executive Producer Riima Daher said that Alone Australia wants conditions to 'get tougher and tougher, to really test [contestants] so that nature's upping the ante as they go... Typically speaking winter sells that best'
