The Traitors: MK Is Used to Calling Out Liars
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 59-year-old criminal lawyer, MK, from Victoria.
Former police officer, now a criminal lawyer, MK says he knows when someone is guilty or not and can read people within 30 seconds.
“I have been dealing with liars all my life,” he says in a press statement.
“Criminal law can be a game of deception but you can’t be too soft. You need the heart of a lion, not the heart of a sheep. I’ve got the heart of a lion and, in this game, I am there to find the sheep”.
Working with different people every day, MK says he can make friends with everyone — from bikies to bankers — and believes finding a Traitor will be easy.
“I was a cop in some of the toughest districts in Australia for about 10 years, this is going to be chicken feed to some of the things I’ve seen”.
He also has a passion for standing up for people who have made mistakes and won’t back down from a fight.
“I help people who break away from the crowds, I help people who make mistakes. I came to Australia when I was 15 and couldn’t speak a word of English and people don’t like it when you’re a little bit different.
“I am a one-man show, I don’t need the opinion of other people.”
