The 26th season of the hit reality show “Survivor USA,” billed as “Survivor Philippines,” will again be shot in location in Caramoan, Camarines Sur.

The 25th season of the show, also shot in Caramoan, opened with a viewership of at least 11 million in the United States. Succeeding episodes had viewerships of 9-10 million.

In a statement, Camarines Sur, Governor Luis “LRay” Villafuerte Jr. said the choice of Caramoan as venue of the show’s 25th season could be attributed to an aggressive marketing promotion program of the provincial government.

“The show’s producers were impressed and we gave them our all-out support,” said the governor’s statement.

Caramoan Islands is deemed as one of the show’s most beautiful and challenging location so far.

    If the Nueva Camarines bill is passed, this will be part of Fuentebella’s turf. Kaya naman pala ang tndi ng lobbying sa senado, dolyares ang katapat ni Arnulfo at Wimpy. Si Arnulfo na hari(governor kuno) at si Wimpy na prinsipe (cngressman) at aswa ni Arnulfo na reyna (Mayor).

    CamSur’s Caramoan, the set of the Survivor USA, is beautiful, indeed. The only complaints of the public is that politics is getting ugly in this province. Son and father politicians are at odds with each other.
