Survivor fans in Canada can now apply and compete on the show


In an unprecedented move for the show, Survivor host Jeff Probst announced the neighbours in the Great White North can now compete in the game of games.

You may not know this about me, but I am a passionate Canadian. I often regale my American friends with Canadian facts of the day and love to write about Survivor from the Canadian fan’s perspective. I even made a passionate argument for why Canada deserves a shot at competing in our own version of the show. We’ll more than be happy to compete with the Americans.

As announced on ET Canada, Jeff Probst has revealed that they will be searching for Canadian applicants for the 39th season of Survivor. It seems like an arrangement that will persist beyond just the 39th, season, however, as Probst later went on to hint that Canadians will undergo a similar casting approach that might see them noted for future seasons if they don’t match what they’re looking for.

If you are a Canadian that is interested in applying for season 39 of Survivor, you must email You will need to provide an unlisted YouTube link of an audition video in the email and indicate your name, age, location, occupation, relationship status, phone number and a brief description of why you want to be on the show.

For reference, most casting videos are as close to three minutes long as possible and offer up an entertaining, but honest, approach to who you are as a person. CBS and Jeff want to know your personality, your story and why this show speaks to you, so be the best you, not the best character.

Despite actively casting Canadians, this won’t mark the first time a Canadian player will be on Survivor. Todd Herzog’s mother comes from Scarborough, Ontario, Canada, and he had to renounce his Canadian citizenship in order to receive the million-dollar prize for winning Survivor China. Still, it will mark the first time someone born in Canada will compete on the show.
