Survivor is an American reality competition show that has been inspired by the Swedish series Expedition Robinson, which premiered in 1997. Survivor made its on-screen debut in the year 2000 on CBS. Since then, it has hosted several seasons and completed 45 seasons. The 45th season concluded just recently, in December 2023, and the makers are now set to premiere the 46th season of the show.
About the Show Survivor
In the show, a group of strangers/participants are dropped off in a remote area, and in order to survive, they must provide for themselves with firewood, food, and shelter. The participants are divided into two or more tribes and in order to earn awards and immunity from elimination, the competitors engage in challenges that test their mental and physical skills, such as solving puzzles and endurance tests, or both. As the show moves ahead, contestants vote against each other to eliminate them from the show. Once a player is declared the Sole Survivor, they receive US$1,000,000 (the prize money varies sometimes) as a grand prize.
Who are the hosts and makers of Survivor?
Since the show first premiered, it has been presented by Jeff Probst, who is also one of the executive producers of the show, along with Mark Burnett. Charlie Parsons is the brains behind this show’s creation (the original Swedish version from which Survivor has been inspired).
Filming of Survivor Season 46
While the makers haven’t revealed the exact filming dates of the show, considering that its release date is very near, the shooting must likely have been done in June 2023. For the first 40 seasons, the survivors had to spend 40 days in the secluded jungle, but from Season 41 onwards, the days were reduced to 26. The filming of the show for this season was done in Fiji.
When is Survivor Season 46 Releasing?
