A celebrity diving show, the return of The Mole and a renovation version of My Kitchen Rules — they’re just some of the shows Channel Seven is offering viewers next year. The network hosted its 2013 program launch last night and divulged which shows will be coming back, including Packed to the Rafters, Revenge, Downton Abbey, The X Factor and Australia’s Got Talent, as well as new additions to the line-up. Here are the shows we’re intrigued to watch — unsurprisingly, they’re in the reality TV category.
- Celebrity Splash: We’ve had Dancing With the Stars and Dancing on Ice. Now we have the diving version. Celebrities will “perform complicated dives from varying heights with the assistance of professional diving instructors.” The show originated in the Netherlands, the same country that gave us Big Brother and The Voice.
- The Mole — Culture Clash: Yes, The Mole is back! And this time there’s a cultural twist, with contestants coming from different socio-economic backgrounds, religions and belief systems. There will still be one person out to sabotage the game: the mole.
- House Rules: Channel Seven isn’t going to let Channel Nine’s The Block have all the renovating fun. In House Rules, contestants have their houses completely renovated by strangers in this state vs. state, room vs. room series.
