Where was 'Survivor' Season 43 filmed? Know more about the scenic location
Since Season 33, the CBS hit 'Survivor' has maintained a single base for shooting where contestants have to face mother nature with the bare minimum
'Survivor' is a show all about survival. Hosted by Jeff Probst, the series features players having to face the wilderness with nothing but the bare minimum to aid them in their survival. Throughout this, the contestants will be divided into groups of three and face several challenges. The one to survive it all will be crowned the title of 'Sole Survivor' and win a prize of $1M. The show casts those who are mainly unrecognized and stay away from the limelight. This fall, Season 43 of the reality TV series will be out for fans to watch. There are 18 players to compete in the new season, including a pet cremator, a pediatric nurse, and a Paralympian.
The new season is set to bring unique challenges for the players to embark on. Though some old challenges like Shot in the Dark, Risk vs Reward, and Earn the Merge will still be a part of the series, some such as Hourglass and Do or Die twists are speculated to be scrapped. Host Jeff Probst explained "We changed the game because we wanted to give players a new series of problems to solve. The easiest way to frame it is to compare it to our very first season. Those players didn't know they would have a chance to play for a food reward, so when they got hungry, they ate rat." Well, whatever the challenges the players will face in Season 43 of the CBS hit 'Survivor', the fans are certainly looking forward to finally getting to watch the new season and see who the winner of this season will be.
Where is 'Survivor' Season 43 filmed?
'Survivor' made its debut back in the year 2000. Since then it has become one of CBS' most popular reality TV shows. The American reality TV series has captured the hearts of many with its promising storylines and dramatic events. It has featured several locations across the globe as its base for shooting since its premiere back in the early oughts. Preferring warm destinations such as the Amazon or the islands of French Polynesia. The long-running show used to change locations on more of a season-to-season basis barring only a few repeats.
Since Season 33 in 2016, ‘Survivor’ has been filmed in the Mamanuca Islands of Fiji. Macuata, Mamanuca Islands, Mana Island, Yasawa Islands, Kadavu, and Savusavu served as regions where the show was shot from Season 33 onward. According to Probst, the shooting takes place exclusively in Fiji now because there are not a lot of places left where the show can be filmed. The reasons are the shift in the economy, population, political unrest, and weather patterns in the last two decades. "Fiji offers us everything that we want," says Probst. He further added, "Incredibly beautiful water that you can see down 30 feet, beaches that are amazing, a government that is working with us, local labor that loves to say ‘Bula!' every day because they're just happy you're here. And our crew has never been as happy. We actually have decent accommodations to do this show out in the jungle. It's a win-win-win." But if it were up to him, Survivor would never leave Fiji. Praising the stunning water and beautiful beaches, he said, "I hope we stay here forever."
'Survivor' Season 43 will air every Wednesday from September 21, 2022, at 8 pm ET/PT on CBS and will be available to stream the next day on the Paramount Plus app.
