Celebrity Treasure Island - First Episode

Television (Full Length Episode) – 2001

In the first all celebrity version of Touchdown reality TV hit Treasure Island, 14 marooned contestants must provide food, water, fire, and shelter for themselves on a Fijian island, as they compete to find treasure and avoid elimination. Presented by Pieta Keating — who was runner-up on the original Treasure Island — the "household names" include Olympians and All Blacks (Frank Bunce), model Nicky Watson, actors and TV tradesman John Cocks. Hunger and cheating suspicions soon exacerbate tensions between the teams.

I've never caught a fish in my life, I don't hunt, I can't cook. What am I going to do...
– Frank Bunce, captain of the South team

Produced by

Touchdown Productions
