John voted off; Probst says Survivor 11 could be in Canada, int’l version considered.
The last of the young guys went home last night on Survivor Vanuatu, as John’s tribe turned against him instead of one of its two women. Even as the ninth season airs, future seasons of Survivor are being planned, and host Jeff Probst says they might have some international flavor. First, producers are considering a location in Canada for the 11th season. “We’ve talked about the terrain and the different places you could go in Canada. It’s definitely something that’s been on the table, especially just in the last year,” he tells the Toronto Sun. The paper also reports that “producers and CBS have talked about doing an international edition.” However, Probst isn’t sure about that idea because Americans are such jingoists when it comes to our reality TV: “The problem is, do Americans care enough to watch players from Russia or China or Canada? I don’t know.” Finally, not that it’s of any consequence, but Jeff Probst–who will vote for John Kerry–says that, on Survivor, “Kerry would probably do better at staying under the radar. He’s brilliant but boring. Bush has that redneck charm down, and, on our show, that might well win it for him.”
