Behind-The-Scenes Secrets Of Survivor

Contestants are Never Alone
The contestants don’t get any privacy, except when going to the bathroom of course! Producers and film crews are set up at each tribes camp day and night. The reason for this is so that no footage is ever missed. They want to catch everything they can that will contribute to making the show more interesting. When spending long days at camp the film crew sets up in an “off limits camouflaged” area known as camera camps with cots, food, and equipment storage. The crew works in shifts so that the same people aren’t living at these basic camera camps all the time and can switch off to the larger base camp (see next slide) once in a while. On the seasons with “exile islands” a producer with a camera will stay with the exiled contestant.
