Survivor set visit will be auctioned off

Two people will get the chance to visit Survivor‘s 19th season location, and have essentially the same experience that visiting members of the media have.

Jeff Probst writes in his weekly EW commentary that after the finale, fans will be able to “bid a once-in-a-lifetime item — a visit to the set of the next Survivor.” He says that “Two people will get to visit us on location! You will see a reward or immunity challenge, see tribal council, participate in a challenge rehearsal, eat with the crew, visit the famous art department and hang with me!”

Proceeds benefit Jeff’s Serpentine Project charity, which previously benefited from an auction of tickets to the Gabon finale. Those went for $2,247.22.
