Poor fish. I'd give it a go, I guess?

15TH SEASON OF AMERICAN SERIES "SURVIVOR" BEGINS PRODUCTION ON JIUJIANG'S ZHELIN LAKE
Jiujiang News Network (Yu Zhuanjian reporting) 2007-06-15 19:05:16   
 
Known as the pioneer of American reality television, the series "Survivor" begin production of its fifteenth season on the morning of June 15th, on the shores of Jiujiang's Zhelin Lake. This is America's first attempt at filming an entire series in China. Production will be based mainly at Lujiao (Deerhorn) Point on Zhelin Lake, but the filming area stretches up to Yangzhou in Wuning County.

Executive producer Doug McCallie notes, "We wish to bring the beautiful scenery of Jiujiang to our worldwide audience. Jiujiang is breathtaking!" The 480+ crew arrived in Jiujiang early this April, beginning three months of production. All actors [sic, or is it?] are American, and while the fifteenth season still revolves around the theme of "survival", it also focuses on everyday people "stepping into nature". [Huh?] The fifteenth season is estimated to cost Y300 000 000 [USD40 000 000], and the show's biggest draw is that it uses neither director nor script, relying instead on real people's reactions to real challenges, an aspect no Hollywood film can bring to the screen. [Going off-topic?]

Ratings have been phenomenal since "Survivor" begin airing in 2000, drawing 70 000 000 viewers from America alone. [Huh?] It has caused summer box-office receipts in America to drop dramatically [B:)], and started a wave of reality television shows sweeping around the world. [Heck, more hyperbole, I'm stopping here.]

Photo captions:
1. Group photo of the city council, production crew and chief of Promotion Board Feng Jing [Babelfish! Are you sure "promotion" translates into "propaganda"? Oh wait maybe it does.]
2. Executive producer Doug McCallie announces the beginning of production
3. A city council representative, chief of Promotion Board Feng Jing and executive producer Doug McCallie cutting a roasted pig to celebrate the beginning of production [old tradition]
4. Production crew taking part in a ceremonial ritual [another old filming tradition]
5. Discussion amongst friends from China and beyond
Found out that Neobie in Chinese means "f*king awesome"! No, really. Look it up!

  :snicker:
Yes Neobie, actors ! or as we've come to know them, Mactors. For instance there is a rumored girl, somewhat famous in her own right, for the new season that was "sent" to the powers to be by request. Something along the lines of " send us someone that you think will make a good contestant on the show."

This is Russ Landau's Blog -- he is the Survivor music composer and is apparently over there searching out some appropriate Chinese sounds.

 Might be interesting to follow along.
