The Traitors: Angus Has an Unexpected Alter-Ego
Imagine Cluedo, but in real life. Sounds like my childhood fantasy, TBH. But for 24 players, this will be their reality; as they participate in Channel 10’s newest game show: The Traitors.
The Traitors sees a group of 24 players, also known as Faithfuls, live together in a grand old hotel where they will need to have their wits about them as they carry out challenges in order to win silver bars, contributing to a prize pool of silver worth up to $250,000.
They’ll also need to figure out which, among them, are actually Traitors.
Stakes are high, because if a Traitor makes it to the end undetected, they get to walk away with the lot. If a Faithful can successfully unmask a Traitor, however, and get rid of them before the final vote, they have the option to take all the prize money or split and share it with their final remaining Faithful.
Phew! Okay. So, who are the players competing on The Traitors? One of them is 28-year-old sales manager, Angus, from Queensland.
A classic case of not judging a book by its cover, Angus hopes his hippy laid back surfer vibe will be the perfect cover for his actual savvy salesman persona.
“I’m the perfect person to play The Traitors because not everything that you see is what you get,” he says in a press statement.
“There are two people, there’s Angus, the quiet considered, well read, analytical orientated guy and then there is my alter ego, Gucci man, who is a lot different.
“He’s extroverted, loves a crowd, high-energy risk-taker and both sides constantly jostle for my attention.”
Angus is married with two kids and his family mean everything to him, but he is willing to play hard to win big saying: “Loyalty means nothing to me in this game”.
