‘The Traitors’: Ethan Is Ready to Burn Bridges to Win

the traitors 2022 ethan

2022 is the year of Network Ten premiering new shows and new formats, and so far, we’re loving it. We’ve roamed the streets of Victoria with Hunted Australia, cruised along the Mediterranean with The Real Love Boat, and now, we’re ready to play detective with The Traitors.

Hosted by Rodger CorserThe Traitors is a new competition reality series that takes place in an old hotel, where our Faithful contestants will compete in challenges to win bars of silver.

The twist, because there’s always a twist, is that there are Traitors masquerading as Faithfuls amongst them, trying to pick them off, one by one. If a Traitor makes it to the end, they’ll win the entire prize pool of silver — worth up to $250,000 — for themselves. If a Faithful makes it to the end, they’ll be presented with a choice: either split the prize with their other Faithful, or keep it all for themselves.

One of the Faithfuls hoping to banish the Traitors before they murder him is Ethan, a 27-year-old fitness instructor from Victoria.

Ethan considers himself a lone wolf, and prides himself on helping people “break the barrier they have on themselves”, per a press statement.

When he’s not running his health and fitness company, Ethan is all about finding new ways to challenge himself, and it’s something he’s remarkably successful at. In fact, he currently holds not one, but two Guinness World Records.

The first record he holds is for the most burpees completed in three minutes, and the second is for “dragging a two-tonne vehicle 100 kilometres in 48 hours on no sleep”.

Going into The Traitors, Ethan knows that, although he’s usually a straight shooter, what he doesn’t say in the game is going to be just as important as what he does say.

“There will be times I want to speak up and I know that if I do that, it could get me in trouble,” he explained. “My game plan coming into this is the first half, I’m going to be super likeable, super social and get everyone to like me. Second half, burn ‘em all”.

Will Ethan’s game plan work? Or will the Traitors snuff him before he has a chance to burn them all? Only time will tell. Until then…

The Traitors airs at 7.30pm, Sunday — Tuesdays, only on 10 and 10 Play on Demand. Miss an episode? Catch up on 10 Play.
