Hamish Blake to host Alone Australia Season 2 reunion

It’s the pointy end of the second season of Alone Australia, the most watched show on SBS this year and one of the few reality shows that is going from strength to strength. The final episode will air on Wednesday May 29, with Hamish Blake hosting this year’s Alone Australia Season 2: The Reunion special which will follow immediately after.

Alone Australia Season 2: The Reunion brings the cast together for the first time since they were dropped into the extreme and wild terrain of New Zealand’s South Island (Aotearoa’s Te Waipounamu). Andreas, Chace, Jack, Jason, Krzysztof, Leanne, Mike, Rick, Suzan and Tamika join Hamish to compare their strategies and experiences and watch unseen footage.

SBS Head of Unscripted Joseph Maxwell said:

“SBS is incredibly proud of the audience response to the return of Alone Australia. The nation has once again followed the highs and lows of our incredible cast over the past eight weeks and been captivated by their raw and authentic stories. Now, Alone superfan Hamish Blake will bring them together for this special reunion program. Expect tears, laughter, and exclusive never-before-seen footage of their experience.”

Hamish Blake said:

“I, like everyone, get so invested in every season of Alone whilst watching smugly from the comfort of my own couch. I have so much respect for the contestants and so many things I want to ask them as a viewer, again, from a couch but this time one in a studio with them. I hope our conversation has far more trouts than eels in it and if you don’t get that reference maybe don’t watch.”

Blake takes over from Amanda Keller who hosted the reunion special last year.

The penultimate Alone Australia Season 2 episode is this Wednesday May 22 at 7.30pm on SBS or SBS On Demand. The final episode premieres Wednesday 29 May at 7.30pm, with Alone Australia Season Two: The Reunion at 8.30pm. You can also listen to Alone Australia: The Podcast hosted by Season 1 winner Gina Chick and SBS Presenter Darren Mara also on SBS On Demand, SBS On Demand on YouTube, the SBS Audio app or wherever you get your podcasts.
