Survivor, the king of shows for reinvention, has announced the latest casting angle for its 31st season: viewers will choose the cast.
Fans are being asked to select 10 males and 10 females from 32 previous contestants in a “Second Chance” season. None of the 32 have previously won the show’s million dollar prize.
The list also includes some current contestants who will be ineligible should they win the big bucks
Survivor has previously included former contestants, but Jeff Probst says the idea of a ‘second chance’ season started brewing during the first season, and was “a fun way to allow our loyal fans to be involved in the creative process.”.
Results of viewer voting will be announced during the upcoming reunion show in two weeks time.
Voting does not appear to be open to Australian fans of the show.
