UPDATE: Cancel that… April Fools prank pulled off by KawathaNow. Well done!
For the first time in its 42 year history, an upcoming season of the CBS reality TV series Survivor will be filmed in Canada instead of the tropics, possibly as soon as next year. This follows another first for Canada: the announcement last fall that Canadians are now eligible to compete on Survivor.
According to an exclusive memo by an anonymous CBS employee, the show’s production company will be scouting several locations in Canada this summer. Algonquin Park in Ontario is the top location, with three other possible locations in British Columbia and Quebec.
“Photogenic vistas, isolated interior, large lakes, camp locations on water, excellent fishing, crew accommodations in nearby towns” are some of the desirable location qualities for Algonquin Park listed in the memo.
The 42nd season is tentatively entitled Survivor: Into The Wild which, according to the memo, would see “18 strangers heading into an isolated forest in Canada to battle the elements — and each other.” The show would be filmed during the summer months, allowing contestants to remain scantily clad — a consistent feature of the series since it premiered in 2000.
