Two weeks ago I was watching survivor and saying to a family member of mine that I would do anything to be a part of that show and a week later it was announced they were auditioning for an Australian series of survivor.
I have a feeling this time it was meant to be. Having made it through to the third round of Big Brother before getting axed and auditioning for the Amazing Race with no luck I am hoping it is third time lucky with my favourite of all of them.
It is an intriguing game of stamina, strategy and perseverance while living in nature itself. I couldn’t think of anything more exciting and challenging.
I am applying this year, whether I get selected or not is a completely different issue. You need some upside going into these applications. Having done a few applications now you take something out of each one that you can improve on for the next one.
All I want to do is challenge myself in that environment and put my strategic thinking and problem solving to the test against a range of competitors who are out there to do the exact same thing.
It got me thinking about my own game play, whether I would be myself or play a different game. Every time I have tried to adapt to a situation where I wasn’t being myself it has never worked out. Going against your morals and beliefs isn’t something I would ever do.
In a game setting though I would have absolutely no problems blindsiding someone. It is part of the game and what makes it fun, and the funny thing is if you are not aware of your surroundings it could happen to you as well.
There are so many elements, so many variables, so many options. To me playing that game would just be a life enhancer, you would feel like you were really living every moment of the game, putting your heart and head to work and realising your own potential.
Will I be applying for Survivor? Yes I will, will I be anyone else but myself? No I won’t, do I think I can win Survivor? No I don’t ‘think’ I can win, if I get on the show I know I will win.
