The next Survivor game took place in Australia as many of you already realize. But what you may not realize is the Australian press covered many stories associated with the show. These stories didn’t make it to the states due to U.S. election fiasco. Some great headlines and stories were missed, so as a public service, we at Ghastly Humour collected these headlines to present for your edification.

crocks.jpg (10393 bytes)In a hilarious but dangerous mix-up, the production crews of Survivor and Crocodile Hunter ended up in the wrong location. When the Survivor contestants were asked to chase down and hold deadly snakes, they just thought it was another zany immunity challenge. Unfortunately, there is no immunity to the bite of the Australian Brown Snake. On the other set, Crocodile Hunter Steve Irwin laughed when asked to wallow in mud as wildlife around him kept trying to eat him. "Really, guys, this isn’t up close and dangerous enough for the show," Steve said as Funnel-Web spiders crawled along his arms and a demon duck of doom nipped at his toes.

Survivor Losers Fight Over Toilet
