This was expected, as the deal to keep Survivor on the air has been renewed. One of the most-watched unscripted series on the network, Survivor, continues to be. Before this news, casting for Survivor Season 43 had already begun.
The reality series Survivor, hosted by Jeff Probst, is filmed in Fiji over 26 days. There were three tribes: VATI Tribe (Green), TAKU Tribe (Orange), and IKA Tribe (Ika) — all competing for a $1 million prize and the title of Sole Survivor (Blue).
Among the cast members are Jenny Kim, Chanelle Howell, Lydia Meredith, and Jonathan Young, as well as Mike Turner, Daniel Strunk, Hai Giang, Marya Sherron, Lindsay Dolashewich, and Maryanne Oketch.

Survivor is now the most-watched broadcast show on CBS, with an average of 7.59 million people per episode. According to CBS, the show achieved a 199 percent rise in streaming platform ratings and is currently Paramount+’s most-streamed reality series.
In the episode, a group of strangers is stranded and must take care of their own needs, including finding food, water, and a fire. In exchange, they engage in strenuous physical activities such as jogging and swimming competitions. Puzzles and endurance tests, for example, put their minds to the test as well.
Sole Survivor, the sole remaining participant, gets $1 million at the end of the game.
How To Be A Part of Survivor Season 43
Another surprise is that Amazing Race and Survivor may be partnered together for this season’s 43rd episode, which will premiere in September 2022.
Season 42 Ratings
Survivor’s 42nd season has an 18-49 rating of 0.85 and a viewership of 5.39 million people. A 43 percent drop in the demo and a 29 percent drop in the live+same-day ratings compared to season 40 (which aired in Spring 2020) is to be expected (includes DVR playback through 3:00 AM).
Further delayed or streaming viewing isn’t included in these figures; however, they are an excellent barometer for measuring performance against other shows on the same channel. Other economic reasons may come into play when determining the destiny of a show, but in general, the higher-rated shows are renewed and the lower-rated ones are canceled based on popularity. Compare Survivor to other CBS television series.

What Are The Rules For Applying In Survivor Season 43?
To be eligible, survivors must be at least 16 years old and have a current passport from either the United States or Canada. Only those who have completed the application in full will be contacted by CBS for the next casting round.
Casting directors will not be able to contact each applicant individually because of the enormous amount of applications. It is highly recommended that anyone who has previously applied to Survivor uploads a fresh video and reapplies for a future season. Seasonal audition videos and applications are preserved and hopefuls must reapply and submit fresh videos for each new season, as mandated by the casting site. “
You don’t have to reapply if you’ve applied within the last year. We’ve saved every one of your contributions. When the website is rebuilt in the fall, you will be able to apply again.”
