Zach Kozyrski is a contestant from Australian Survivor: Champions v Contenders (2018).

A prominent member of the All Boys Alliance, Zach was very loud about his opinions, constantly stating that the women on his tribe were weak compared to the female Champions. This caused him to butt heads with all the girls on his team, most notably outsider Paige Kerin. Although his strength was able to get him far in the game, his general unlikable personality was proven tough for his alliance to carry, causing them to get rid of him quickly.

Now working as a personal trainer, Zach first came to the attention of Australia as Hunter on the family entertainment television show, Gladiators.

Zach hopes his fellow castaways will think he's all brawn and no brain giving him an inside edge to win the title of Sole Survivor.

"I'm a huge fan of the show, just like I was of Gladiators. All I wanted to be was a Gladiator. Did that. Now all I want to do is be a Survivor. As a hyper competitive individual, I relish the challenge and it's the bragging rights of being Australia's lone survivor. I love to compete and this game is the pinnacle."

"I am constantly being asked to try out for shows like this but I've never been interested except for Survivor. I'm going to be doing it for my family, friends and fans."

When he's not watching Survivor with his wife, Zach is the captain of Australia's number one paintball team which he built and recruited by himself. Although he feels he has the physical side sorted, Zach also thinks he has the mental ability to take on his fellow castaways saying, "I know how to make people feel good about themselves and to believe in the process. I think most people see fitness guys as big dumb idiots but I want to play smart."[1]
