Now it can be told: Survivor Philippines Season 2 will take place at Palau.
This island nation in the Pacific Ocean is located southeast of the Philippines. Its tropical waters are home to an abundance of marine life, making Palau a paradise for scuba divers and snorkelers alike.
In the first season of the GMA-7 reality show, 18 castaways were brought to Ko Tarutao, Thailand, to outwit, outplay and outlast each other.
After spending 39 days on the island and surviving 15 Tribal Councils, the 23-year-old basketball heartthrob John Carlo "JC" Tiuseco was named as the first Pinoy Sole Survivor of Survivor Philippines Season 1.
Since his announcement as the winner of the P3 million cash prize last December 2008, JC has become a well-known showbiz personality.
He has appeared in the Kapuso shows Maynila, Dear Friend, and his first afternoon teleserye Kung Aagawin Mo ang Lahat sa Akin.
Aside from being an actor and a host of GMA-7's morning show Unang Hirit, he has also been tapped to be an endorser of a fragrance line.
As early as February 2009, GMA-7 has been conducting auditions for the next batch of castaways. Viewers will soon find out the identity of these castaways in the following days. Who among them will be the next Pinoy Sole Survivor?
Survivor Philippines is hosted byPaolo Bediones.
