‘The Traitors’: Justine Won’t Let Anyone Take the Win From Her

the traitors 2022 justine

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 who’s determined to make it to the end is Justine, a 36-year-old social worker from Queensland.

A Ganguri woman from Brisbane, Justine’s schedule is jam-packed. Not only is she a single mum of two who works a demanding role as a social worker, she also has a podcast and fills her spare time with charity work and public speaking engagements centred around family and domestic violence.

It’s no surprise, really, that Justine is playing The Traitors for her kids, and they’re making her more determined than ever to take home the win.

“I want the money and I want to win for my kids,” she said. “I want to create a life for us and getting them a good education, that’s my driving force and when your kids are your motivation, there’s not much that can stop you.”

When it comes to The Traitors, Justine believes her life skills and leadership qualities will carry her through the game, and is expecting to play a strong social game.

“Everything that’s happened has shaped me and made me who I am,” she said in a press statement. “I think it’s taught me to be resilient and tough when I need to be. I grab life now and jump in feet first, with no apologies.”

Justine knows that being a natural born leader could have its downsides in the game, but she’s hoping to not put too many people offside with her direct approach.

“I won’t be unkind or malicious but I always speak my mind and I’m not passive and don’t hold back,” she said. “I’ll have to bite my tongue a little bit in this game, but I probably won’t be able to help myself.”

Will Justine be able to lead the Faithfuls to victory? Or will her approach come back to bite her? 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.
