A brand new episode of 72 Hours is taking off Friday with 9 new competitors battling the elements and each other for $100,000! Tasmania has some surprises, hold on to your hats!
“Flinders Island, Tasmania” – Thursday, June 27, at 9 p.m. (ET/PT) Dropped off on a remote Tasmanian island, three teams composed of three strangers must navigate their way through jagged beaches, hazardous brush covered mountains and swamp-like lagoons while enduring freezing rains and strong winds in order to locate a briefcase full of cash in just 72 hours. All they have to accompany them in their quest for $100,000 are their teammates, the clothes on their backs, a GPS and one bottle of water. Brandon Johnson hosts.
