Survivor Nicaragua challenges, tribe names, cast member identities leak out

Survivor Nicaragua‘s not-quite-remote location in a rather touristy area has resulted in photos that show actual challenges plus production areas.

Photos posted to Survivor Sucks that were taken mid-June, apparently before the production began, show challenges and potential camp locations. Most impressive and notable are two massive pyramids that resemble the Price is Right game Plinko. Close-up photos of the pyramid challenge reveal the tribe’s names: La Flor and Espada, which apparently come from the name of a Nicaraguan beach and the word for sword, respectively.

In addition, a scanned newspaper article about the production says that the show has closed several beaches: “Escameca, Escamecita, the South part of Yankee, Hermosa, and Tamarindo and El Toro/Mixcal.”

There are also potential spoilers about cast members, which are usually the result of posts on social networking sites or talkative relatives. For those, see the spoiler thread on Survivor Skills and various threads on Survivor Sucks.
