CHAN­NEL 10 hopes Sur­vivor will con­tinue to out­play and out­last its re­al­ity TV ri­val, af­ter over­tak­ing strug­gling Hell’s Kitchen in the rat­ings. The Marco Pierre White­fronted cook­ing com­pe­ti­tion this week lost 200,000 view­ers from its de­but — fall­ing 22,000 be­low Sur­vivor. How­ever, The Block re­mains in top spot with more than one mil­lion view­ers on Sun­day and Mon­day. The Sur­vivor camp is shaken by a near- drown­ing this week — but it won’t be Olympic wa­ter polo player Ni­cola “Ziggy” Zagame ( pic­tured) who has world­class swim­ming skills. Not that her ath­letic skills give her the up­per hand.

“Peo­ple look at you as a threat be­cause you are phys­i­cally ca­pa­ble and it puts a tar­get on your back,” she said.
