Today it finally kicked off! The highly anticipated 2012 series of Survivor:Melville. The two teams for 2012 are Whero (Red) and Parauri (Brown). Weather was variable for the first challenge forcing the teams inside for a 2011 series favourite 'The Tower of Doom'.
Each team nominated one player who threw four dice, the dice were turned over to the 'six' side before a cup placed on top would determine the winner. The first team to score five points would claim immunity and more importantly would send the other team straight to elimination! With only ten competitors this year the first elimination was vitally important. No-one would want to have the distinction of going out first. Filmed by Reanna from Room One, presented by Veronica from Room Five, this is Survivor:Melville!
