survivor philippines


After much hype, the local franchise of Survivor has finally shown last Monday. Aired late night over GMA7,the show promises excitement never before seen on Philippines tv. Having watched all survivor series hosted by Jeff Probst, I think that the local version is at par with its international counterparts.

I was disappointed though by the announcement of the show management that the series was shot in a remote island in Thailand. I couldn’t believe it myself that some of the best places in the Philippines was ignored by the management and opted to spend some more money in Thailand.

All other series, which were shot around the world, reflects truly of the place where it was shot. I thought that although the cast are Filipinos, the title should have been Survivor Thailand and shown only for Philipine audience.
