The Traitors: There’s More Than Meets the Eye With Dirk
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.
If anyone is going to be in tune which who is a Traitor or a Faithful, it’s clairvoyant Chloe. She knows her unique skill set is one that can work in her favour in finding out who people really are.
Phew! Okay. So, who are the players competing on The Traitors? One of them is 34-year-old hotel concierge, Dirk, from Victoria.
As an executive concierge at hotels in Melbourne, Dirk knows how to read someone quickly to work out what they want. He’s looked after everyone, from royal families to celebrities, and is used to telling white lies to keep his clients happy.
“I’m super graceful up top and furiously kicking underneath the water,” he says in a press statement, alikening himself to a swan.
Dirk is also a cabaret performer and actor and believes being the youngest of his siblings has helped him feel comfortable in social circles and find his own way to stand out.
He doesn’t want his fellow players to know he has an acting background but Dirk is also looking forward to using some of his skills to move him forward in the game.
“You have to hide your emotions and feelings and portray something that is not really happening so if I set something up that causes some drama, I can react to it accordingly.”
