castaways are not allowed to leave CBS island.
The contract that the castaways signed has restricted their post-Survivor media blitz, Inside.com reveals, requiring them to get CBS approval for endorsements and appearances. For example, Rich was going to be on Saturday Night Live, but CBS said no, since the show is on a competing network. However, they’re going to all over CBS: the castaways have all recorded spots for CBS shows, and many will have walk-on roles on CBS shows this fall.
