A local woman has applied to go on the reality TV show Survivor, after spending the last three weeks negotiating the gruelling challenges associated with Sydney’s lockdown.
“I’m doing home-schooling, most of the cooking and cleaning, all while working from home, without any help from my cleaner and nanny,” says Trish Belford.
“It’s easily the most stressful thing I’ve ever done, but it’s the perfect preparation for Survivor.”
The popular TV show features a group of contestants deliberately marooned in an isolated location, where they must provide food, water, fire, and shelter for themselves.
“It should be a walk in the park to be honest,” says Trish Belford. “At least my bloody kids won’t be there with me, haha.”
The mother of two denies suggestions the mental health impacts of lockdown may be triggering a deluded state of mind, leading her to think she can do anything.
“Not at all, I’ve just learnt a lot about myself and what I can achieve without home help,” she says.
UPDATE: Ms Belford is reportedly re-thinking her Survivor application, after her children found her intoxicated in the foetal position on the kitchen floor, crying and saying she hates life.
More to come.
