‘The Traitors’: Will Law Student Kashindi Defeat the Traitors?

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 defeat the Traitors and take out the top prize this season is Kashindi, a 20-year-old law student from Queensland.

In her everyday life, Kashindi prides herself on being truthful and loyal. In The Traitors, though? Expect the opposite.

“Loyalty is everything in my life but not in the game,” she said in a press statement. “In the game, I don’t owe anyone anything. Nobody helped me get into this game.”

Kashindi comes from a huge family, something she’s expecting will help her out when it comes time to sniff out the Traitors in the game.

“Every day is a day of trying to figure out who broke the dishes, who did this and who did that,” she joked.

Her family, she explained, is one of the reasons she has such a competitive nature.

“I live in a house with four rugby players, one singer and one who wants to be a pop star so I have to be competitive,” she said. “I always want to win and until I’ve won, I don’t feel like I’ve done enough. It’s either win or win. Not win or lose.”

Kashindi is planning on keeping her cards close to her chest, and not revealing too much to her fellow competitors. One thing she’ll have to combat, though, is the “biggest misconception” people have about her, which is that she’s “rude” — something she presumes comes from her “resting face”.

“I also like to observe before I talk so that can come off as arrogant or rude but I’m actually very loving and funny,” she said.

Will Kashindi be able to find the Traitors before they kill her game? 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.
