Another superfan of the show, Ivan Ornelas comes to us direct from the US with a unique collection of opinions and thoughts that make him a perfect addition to Survivor Oz!
Hailing from Kentucky, Kate McLaughlin used to have dreams of being deserted on a desert island as a child which helped her discover Survivor when it started and she hasn’t turned back since (despite two small breaks in the middle). She is intelligent enough to like All-Stars (at least according to Ben), is obsessed with Boston Rob and has some tendencies towards certain players that may explain why they have never appeared on our show. That and possibly getting a restraining order against us. But there is a lot more than certain activities from Kate in what is our longest ever Ozlet Introduction interview!
Our second new female Ozlet, Kristan Knarr resisted the urge to become a Survivor fan for numerous years before finally giving in and never looking back. Never backwards in coming forward with her opinion, Kristan provides a fresh insight into the world of Survivor as well as having an open opinion on a wide variety of other reality shows, including her obsession with Australia’s version of Big Brother.
When it comes to superfans of not only Survivor but Survivor Oz, Anthony Rossi takes the cake and all the crumbs. His superfandom of Survivor helped get him over the line, and there seems to be more about our show that Rossi knows than even we do! And in his chat, he details a wide variety of entertaining facts that will make him a super addition to our team!
Our first ever Ozlet to hail from the ‘sunshine state’ of Queensland, Julian Groneberg is passionate about Survivor and can talk about it for as long as he is ever allowed to! From having a close connection to where Australian Outback was filmed right through to visiting another location on the other side of the world, Julian is a perfect addition to the Survivor Oz team!
One of three new female Ozlets to join us, Bridget Velturo brings an interesting journey into liking Survivor to the table as well as some great stories on her fandom! From owning a Survivor hat that she only wears to the beach to actually applying for the show, you’ll be hooked to Bridget as you learn more about her in our introduction interview with her!
Ferdinand Joppe is one entertaining and funny guy who fits perfectly into Survivor Oz like a comfy pair of jeans. Originally hailing from Norway, Joppe currently finds himself in Australia studying and has found our land a place of interesting and fun people. But outside of Australia, he teaches us about the amazing nation of Norway as well as giving us his own individual approach to all things to do with Survivor!
