While last year was all about intelligence versus brute strength, this time around, Australian Survivor season nine is putting to the test those seemingly unbreakable bonds as it endeavours to answer the age-old question of whether blood truly is thicker than water. Available to stream for free, read on as we explain below how to watch Australian Survivor: Blood V Water online from anywhere, with new episodes airing three days a week.
Taking place for a second time in a row within the borders of Australia (thanks to that pesky old pandemic), Blood V Water will be located in Charters Towers, Queensland, where 12 pairs will seek to battle it out in Survivor's obstacle course of challenges.
With new and old contestants returning from previous seasons, these 24 castaways will consist of parents and their children, siblings, couples, in-laws, and so on.
All competing for that $500,000 prize money, who will outwit, outmanoeuvre, and ultimately cross a loved one to claim the winning title? Read on below for how to watch Australian Survivor: Blood V Water online from anywhere and 100% for free.
