Adventurous Liz tackling The Moleo
By CHRISTIAN STANGER
AFTER a hectic few months, South Tweed's Liz Cantor, 22, is set to make her reality television debut next Thursday night as a contestant on the new series of The Mole.
In the space of a few days in July, Liz's emotions were stretched to breaking point.
Having narrowly missed out on the finals of the Nescafe Big Break competition with her teen-travel show idea, her spirits were picked up the very next day when Channel Seven told her pack her bags for New Zealand.
"I was so disappointed I didn't make it through with Nescafe Big Break, but then the next day I got a phone call about The Mole and I was stoked," said Liz.
This, the fifth series of the reality show, is being shot in New Zealand. The Mole pits 12 contestants against each other in physical and mental tasks for prize money of $500,000. And all the while there is one person who attempts to sabotage their quest, "The Mole".
After a live eviction each week, only three people will remain for the last show. One will win, and one will be revealed as "The Mole".
A former professional surfer and confessed adrenalin junkie, Liz says that she is up for whatever the producers throw at her.
"I think everyone on show is very athletic, so we're all pretty even and I don't think my acting background is going to help because everyone is intelligent and can see straight through it," Liz said.
"I have been working on a few strategies though."
But when off camera, Liz, a keen skier is tackling the slopes and checking out the breathtaking scenery.
The new series of The Mole will premier on Channel Seven on Thursday, August 25 at 7.30pm.
