Welcome to the Survivor Casting Website. We are sorry, but we are no longer open for online submissions. Tape deadline was Jan. 10th, 2012. Check back in May, 2012 if you missed the most recent deadline. Calls for the next two seasons will be made in January and February of 2012. If you don't hear by February 29th, your torch has been snuffed. Please check the "Open Call" page to see if there is an Open Call Casting in a city near you. If you are technically challenged, this is the way to go! These are reviewed as we receive them and considered for the season that we are casting at the time. Source: CBS Survivor Casting NoticeKey Points:
The applications due 1/10/2012 and the response of interest by 2/29 were for the "next two seasons" - meaning Survivor 25/26.
A new Application process will be announced in May 2012
Board Consensus, supported by evidence:
The LA Finals for S25 occurred in mid-January, 2012; the LA Finals for S26 occurred in early March, 2012

"Survivor" Hopefuls Line Up For Casting Call
More than 200 people turned out Monday night for an open casting call for the CBS reality show "Survivor" at Washburn's Memorial Union.Reporter: Melissa Brunner
How 2 Survivor Hopefuls Made Their Auditions Stand Out:
TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) - One held a baby, another stripped to his skivvies and still others tried other tactics to prove they could be the next "Sole Survivor."
Among those in the early crowd was Dan Foley, who drove more than 20 hours from Maine to take part. Foley says he's attended six of the open casting calls because he believe "Survivor" would be the ultimate experience. He says the $1 million prize is nice, but he'd do it even without the money.
Other hopefuls traveled from New Jersey, Texas and other states.
Survivor hopefuls recorded one-minute segments,
trying to prove to producers they deserve a shot to outwit, outplay and
outlast. Despite the advice often repeated to simply be yourself,
there was no shortage of face paint and props.
DelliColli says the show's producers have, in fact, found several contestants from the open casting calls. Among them was Brandon Bellinger of St. George, Kansas, who competed on Boatwright's tribe in Guatemala. She was among those giving the "be yourself" advice, saying producers will see right through people who aren't genuine.
Survivor is currently in its 24th season. It airs at 7 pm Wednesday nights on WIBW-TV.Key Point: This was the first Casting Call held after the S26 LA Finals, why?
Start of filming on Survivor 25 confirmed
Camarines Sur’s governor told abs-cbnNEWS, “It’s a really big production but I cannot (give more details) because I signed a confidentiality agreement. It’s is being filmed right now and it’s going to air in September,” L. Ray Villafuerte told abs-cbnNEWS.com on Tuesday. That’s pretty definitive confirmation that this is the CBS, U.S. production—and a hilarious way to honor one’s confidentiality agreement.
The report says the governor “added that the shooting only started last week and will wrap up in August.” It did start early last week—that was evident to anyone who reads Survivor recaps and interviewers, as several regular entertainment writers disappeared last week, obviously to go on location. As to the end date, we know that season 26 will wrap up in June, although some crew members may linger as long as August to close down production.
As usual, the show involves a massive crew, which includes a number of locals. Villafuerte said that production there is “hiring 400 people. They pay them daily wage, they are hiring [vehicles, boats and all local supplies they buy so there’s serious business in the locality].” (I translated the part in [brackets]).
Source: Dalton Article on S25/26 Filming
1) Status Quo - Survivor will continue with its normal Fall / Spring broadcasts of seasons filmed "back-to-back" at a single location. The Exhibits are for some season(s) (27 or 27/28) after 26 that would be filmed in 2012/2013 and broadcast starting in the Fall of 2013.
2) S25 Broadcasts this Summer - The now filming season of Survivor (25), will broadcast in the Summer of 2012, S26 which complete filming in late June 2012 at Gota Beach, Caramoan Peninsula, Carmines Sur, Philippines will broadcast in the Fall of 2012. Host Jeff Probst's last Survivor (26) will be broadcast concurrently with the launch of his daytime talk program. This unusually early casting activity and the reference in Exhibit A supports filming late this year for a Survivor 27. This would return Survivor to its old late Fall - Winter filming pattern. It is unclear if this current activity is for S27 as a single location shoot, or S27/28.
3) S27 Broadcasts Summer 2013 - Perhaps the recent ratings surge for BB and the fact it is hosted by CBS President Les Moonves mistress-turned-trophy-wife, will send BB into school year programming and Survivor 27 will broadcast Summer 2013 in its place. Or perhaps Survivor 25 and/or 27 will broadcast concurrently with BB during Summers.
Please improve upon the hypotheses, add new exhibits, offer new a hypothesis or add your comments. Thanks
