The "Survivor Court" was dismantled last Saturday and will be sent to the United States. It will be used by CBS during the "Survivor-Marquesas" broadcasts, which are scheduled to begin during March 2002.

According to sources now in French Polynesia, the scout locator manager, Raine Hall, plans to organize the next "Survivor" TV show somewhere in the Amazon. A final decision, however, has not yet been made.

The Marquesas production involved a team of 198 technicians from Australia, the United States, New Zealand and Kenya.

Almost 400 Marquesans also were involved in the making of the show.

In Taiohae, people hope that "Survivor-Marquesas" will boost tourism.

Some "Survivor addicts" have already informed Tahitipresse that they will visit Nuku Hiva early next year.
