"This game exposes who we are as people, to the core. It's like truth serum." - Lex van den Berghe, Survivor: All-Stars
Survivor isn't just a reality show- it's a life-changing adventure, and a crazy game of strategy. Only a handful of people get the opportunity to partake in that adventure, but we want to change that.
We want to give more people a chance to challenge themselves physically, socially, and mentally, in the unique format that is Survivor.
As someone who has participated in 4 other fan-made Survivor games in VIC and WA, I can personally say that there is something about the social strategy (even in a 12 hour game) that grows your self-awareness each time.
For Melbourne Survivor Season 2 we need your help, because we're planning on taking it to the next level. This time it will be over a weekend, the contestants will have to build their own shelter and compete in full-on obstacle course challenges, while trying to adapt to twists in the game. It will be filmed and edited into episodes, in the Survivor style.
The minimum amount we can do this with is $500. This is mainly for accommodation, lighting hire, and food. The more money we raise the more we can do and the more likely it is that there are future seasons.
If you don't want to contribute financially but you'd still like to support us another way, we'd love it if you could share this on social media- and invite your friends to the applications event to get the hype going! You can also sign up for the production team!
Thanks so much for checking this out and if you have any questions please feel free to ask them!

What is a buff? It's basically a stretchy tubular bandana that contestants wear on the TV show 'Survivor' to show what tribe they're on.
Headskinz are an Australian company who have been designing and producing the buffs for Season 2 and they're doing an awesome job! Their seamless headwear is made from quality breathable fabric that repels moisture, is stain resistant, and provides sun & wind protection.
(So apart from being a cool thing to wear & a collectable item, it's also great for something like bike-riding)
The buff design you see below is what the contestants who reach the Merge part of the game will be wearing.

Risks and challenges
This is our first Kickstarter project, and while a budget has been worked out, we have no idea how much funding we can get, and if the rewards are appealing at all.
What we can guarantee is an amazing finished product. Using whatever funding we receive plus props we already have, we can create an authentic Survivor experience complete with epic challenges, a spectacular cast, and many memorable moments. We would love for you to be a part of making that happen.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
