Where Is Survivor 2019 Filmed? – Survivor Season 39 Location

Survivor 39: Island of the Idols takes place in the Mamanuca Islands of Fiji.
• It isn’t the first season of Survivor to be filmed here—nor will it be the last.

• The Mamanuca Islands are a series of about 20 islands, some of which get covered by tides.

The 39th season of Survivor is called “Island of the Idols.

” The big twist? Former winners “Boston” Rob Mariano and Sandra Diaz-Twine will spend 39 days on their own separate island, where they’ll dole out strategy tips to lucky castaways who cross their path.

But where is this so-called Island of the Idols? While the castaways on Survivor spend most of their time creating alliances, eating meager rations of rice, and getting bitten by tropical bugs, they also get to enjoy a beautiful filming location for 39 days.

Survivor has been filmed everywhere from Gabon to Nicaragua to China, but the 39th season, Survivor: Island of the Idols, went back to a familiar spot.

Where was 2019’s Survivor: Island of the Idols filmed?

The 14th season of Survivor was the first to be filmed in Fiji, and it was simply called Survivor: Fiji. The series headed back to Fiji in 2016 for season 33, Survivor: Millenials vs Gen X, and it’s been filmed there ever since.

Why does Survivor film in Fiji so much?

Fiji offers pretty much everything that the Survivor cast and crew need―beautiful beaches with clear water, vibrant fish, and stunning views.

And logistically, things are also working out quite well.

In 2017, Survivor host Jeff Probst told Entertainment Weekly that the Fijian government has been happy to work with the CBS show. And since Survivor has gotten into the habit of filming two seasons back-to-back, it makes sense for the crew to stay in one location to film both seasons.

In fact, the Survivor crew sets up a kind of “camp” of their own, with housing, bathrooms and a cafeteria.

Probst also told EW: “The real truth of the world is, when we started Survivor 18 years ago, there were lots of places we could go.

It’s been two decades. It’s a different world.

There are not as many places we can go for lots of reasons—the economy, population, political unrest, weather patterns.”

In fact, things are going so well that Probst said that he “hopes we stay here [Fiji] forever.

Fiji offers us everything that we want. It’s a win-win.
