The Bush Tucker Trial
The celebrity teams have to compete to win food in the bush tucker trial, the trials usually involve the celebs putting their hands or even faces into boxes filled with live insects, snakes, spiders and other living creatures that most people have a phobia of. If the nominated celebs don’t do well in the bush tucker trial their team don’t eat.
This year the celebrities were greeted by the turntable of terror as soon as they entered the jungle, a pair from each team were slid into a plastic coffin full of snakes, rats, cockroaches, etc. once in the coffin they had to complete a puzzle to form a star shape.
The yellow team were victorious with four meals and the better Crock Creek camp. The red team only managed one meal and now have to stay at the more basic Snake Rock site.
Since it was first launched in 2002 the show has been a huge success and has been licensed globally to many, many countries.
