Survivor Philippines not in Philippine Territory

The local version of Survivor to be aired only on GMA 7 this August will be held outside the country. According to Paolo Bediones, the Filipino counterpart of Jeff Probst, said that the reality show will not be held in the territory of the Philippines. It is one of the regulations GMA 7 had to comply with Castaway Productions like with any other country franchises.

You better secure a passport, dude.

As part of the “Survivor thrill”, the castways are being isolated and sent to territories away from people. So where could it be?


There are no leaks yet. Hearsays telling that a beach somewhere in Camarines Sur is the location. Is it true? I am not sure. It may be publicized to mislead us. At this point, there is no certainty yet. All we have to do is to wait… and guess.

          If I am not mistaken, the French version of Survivor, Koh-lanta, is currently filming in Gota Beach. The beach is located in the northeastern part of Caramoan, Camarines Sur.

          So the rumor is absolutely false. It is unoriginal if this will also be the location of the first season of Survivor Philippines.

If it is outside the country, GMA 7 only shows that they have the budget to be this ambitious with this project. Franchising Survivor cost a lot. Adding to its costs are the location (overseas?), manpower and ehem, prizes. In addition to Survivor, GMA 7 also got the “Idol” franchise which is now airing. That only means Philippine TV has improved a lot.

 As of now, only hearsays about the location and other details of the Philippine version of Survivor are circulating. It may be true.
