Pia Miranda reveals the only reason why she would return to Survivor

EXCLUSIVE: The season six champion spills on a potential return to reality TV.

Australian Survivor winner Pia Miranda has revealed she’d only return to the reality show on one surprising condition.

The popular actress, who won the show’s sixth season in 2019, told Yahoo Lifestyle that she’d compete for a second time if Survivor US host Jeff Probst called her for an international all-winners season.

“I’ll do anything for Jeff Probst,” she said at the 2023 ARIA Awards. “I mean, he's the reason I am who I am today.

“I’ve always said ‘never again’, but I would never say no to Jeff.”


Pia went on to say that while she is a big fan of Australian Survivor host Jonathan LaPaglia, she would never return for the local version of the show.

“No offence, like JLP’s unreal, but I ain’t going back to Australian Survivor,” she added.

Australian Survivor’s 50 days, American Survivor’s 26. Like, do the math.”

Australian Survivor 2024

Channel 10 announced at their annual Upfront event last month that Australian Survivor would be returning for an eleventh season in 2024.

Following last year’s ‘Heroes V Villains’ theme, season 11 will be themed ‘Titans V Rebels’.

“The Titans are both physically intimidating and utterly ruthless, but they’ll need to be at their absolute best to take on the Rebels – a group of individuals who live life by a different set of rules,” the network said in a statement.


The new season of Australian Survivor, which is once again filmed in Samoa, is expected to premiere early next year.
