Finnish Pot-Limit Omaha legend, Ilari “Ziigmund” Sahamies, will be one of the 16 contestants taking part in the Survivor Finnish Tv Reality Show next year.
The show was already filmed earlier this year in the Philippines and it will air on February 3rd, 2018 on the Finnish TV channel Nelonen.
Unlike in the original American version, there will be no $1 million first-place prize. Instead, the yet to be announced winner was awarded $35,000, which is around one or two buy-ins for the railbird favorite “Ilari_FIN“.
“I want to win this whole thing,” Sahamies said earlier this year after taking part in the show, but admitted he mainly participated, because he wanted to start a healthier lifestyle.

Also taking part in the show will be Miss Finland 2012 Sara Chafak, who has already gotten over 6,7 million views on Youtube after her appearance on the PokerStars Shark Cage Show:
