Survivor: Philippines

Jeff Probst: Survivor, the biggest, most thrilling game on television, is also the most grueling.  

Jeff Probst (Survivor: Heroes Versus Villains):  Rob can you hear me?

Medic (Survivor: Samoa):  Russ, Russ are you with us?   

Jeff Probst: For 24 seasons castaways have been pitted against the elements...being stalked by wildlife.   They have been taken to the edge of their own limits.  

Mike Skupin (Survivor: Australian Outback): Ughhh.  

Jeff Varner (Survivor: Australian Outback):  He's burnt pretty bad.  

Elizabeth Filarski (Survivor: Australian Outback):  Oh my God. 

Medic (talking to Jonathan Penner, Survivor: Micronesia):  The infection that goes into your bloodstream is potentially fatal.  

Jeff Probst: Some have paid the ultimate price, pulled from the game with one question in their hearts:  what could have been?  Next season, three castaways who were airlifted out will be given a second shot.  They'll join three tribes of new players in one of our most treacherous locations yet, the Philippines.   Here, thousands of islands scattered over the Southeast Asia Sea hide a dark and sinister secret.   The waters are teeming with ravenous sharks and the land provides no refuge.  Deadly snakes rule the jungle and a furious storm can break even the strongest of spirits.  This time, will the veterans survive the elements and the vote in order to claim the million dollar prize or will a new castaway emerge as the Sole Survivor?  Find out this Fall on Survivor: Philippines.

Caramoan Peninsula is a hilly peninsula in the 
Camarines Sur province of the Philippines


The landscape features limestone karsts formations, caves, deep gorges, snaking rivers, white sandy beaches and clandestine coves 


The climate of the Caramoan is tropical which is divided into wet and dry seasons. The climatic control over the two air stream systems produces the two distinctive variations in the climate, the monsoon and the Pacific tradewinds. From October to January, the northeast monsoon prevails, while the north Pacific tradewinds occur from February to September coinciding with the south tradewinds.
