The site also reports that producers’ “first choice, somewhere in the Indian Ocean, was canceled following the devastating tsunami.”

The location for Survivor‘s 10th season, has been receiving a lot of attention because of the show. Palau previously just seemed like a misspelling of the show’s first location, but now, according to KUAM, “the number of people visiting the government’s web site has jumped from only a few thousand hits to at much as 3,000,000 a month” since the show started airing. Palau’s president, Tommy Remengesau, says “we’re now getting tourists to Palau simply because they watched Survivor. But I think the exposure has certainly worked wonders for Palau.”
