‘The Traitors’: Cheeky Lewis Is Ready to Lie to Everyone’s Faces

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 in the night is Lewis, a 33-year-old electrician from Queensland’s Sunshine Coast.

Lewis prides himself on being someone who’s always up for a laugh, and he’s ready to throw himself head first into the chaos of The Traitors and everything it entails — even if it means lying with a smile, straight to everyone’s face.

“I will be hiding in plain sight,” Lewis said in a press statement. “They won’t know until it’s already too late.”

Although Lewis is playing as one of the Faithfuls this season, he also thought he would “fit the role” of a Traitor perfectly.

“But some aspects of my personality will make me a terrible Traitor just from being loud and usually the biggest person in the room,” he conceded.

Lewis went on to say that one of his strengths is his “ability to get away with things” — a skill he’s sure will come in handy in The Traitors.

“If I was an animal in this game, I would be a rat or a ferret,” he said. “I don’t want to be a big cat that everyone is looking and hunting for, I want to be the one in the tree who can pop down and take the spoils of war.”

Will Lewis be the smiling assassin of The Traitors, or will the Traitors wipe that smile right off his face? 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.
