Celebs can raise money for charity by competing in Endemol/M-Net series


Celebrities around South Africa can benefit a charity of their choice by taking part in brand-new Survivor South Africa but they will have to give up their luxury lifestyles and endure hardship, devious tribe mates and the forces of Mother Nature to raise funds.

M-Net is planning to shoot the series, produced by Endemol South Africa, at an exotic, but desolate, location in the Indian Ocean. Helen Smit, M-Net's head of local content, says this brand-new rendition of Survivor South Africa is designed to have both celeb-watchers and survivor fans talking. "It will be the Real McCoy, Survivor in all its television splendour and challenges. We're not planning to change the format to make it easier for our celebs."
