TVNZ’s new Survivor show is bringing out the competitive streak in people – both on and off screen.
Kiwi sporting celebrities, All Black Jerome Kaino and professional boxer Joseph Parker, have been egging each other on taste test some creepy crawlies.
In a Facebook post promoting the show, TVNZ asked fans if they were stranded on a desert island, would they rather eat a tarantula, centipede, cricket or scorpion.
Kaino starts the cheeky chat with, “You been hitting the tarantulas pre-fight Joseph Parker?”
Parker then fires back: “Doubt it uce, you keen? 😂😂 A turbocharge to get you back on the paddock sooner.”
The pair continued to joke back and forth, with other Survivor fans joining in, before Jerome declared: “Game on brother.”
Sounds like this challenge just got accepted!
