‘Australian Survivor’ returns to Samoa

Twelve former Survivor castaways and 12 new players have been confirmed for this season’s series, divided into two tribes based on a 'Heroes vs Villains' theme.

One of the former Survivor stars, Kristie Bennett who participated in the 2016 Australian season in Samoa, will be returning as a cast member again.

Samoa is known as the first chosen location for the first ever filming of the Survivor, reportedly chosen for its rugged beauty and remoteness.

Samoa PM calls parliament media filming ban 'stupid'

Talamua Media reported a press release, from the Office of the Clerk, informed media all video and still cameras are prohibited inside the new Maota Fono during parliament sessions.

The new arrangement comes after the new parliament building was opened last week.

Tuilaepa told Talamua he was not aware of the ban, saying he would have stopped the notice if he'd known.

He expressed surprise at not seeing any journalists in parliament.
