Celebrity Survivor: Vanuatu is the second season overall of the Australian franchise of Survivor and the first celebrity edition.

Filmed in Vanuatu, this instalment features well-known Australian personalities competing for $100,000 on behalf of their nominated charity. A regular contestant, former S.A.S. serviceman Ben Wynn, joined the season as a reward for the winning tribe as a fully fledged cast member. This season also holds the distinction for having every player voted out of the game.

Production & Development

Conception

In 2006, Nine Network held the rights to screen the American edition of Survivor and the licence to produce a local a local edition of Survivor, which resulted in Nine's 2002 edition of Australian Survivor. However, the Seven Network found a loophole in their contract and obtained the rights to produce Australian Celebrity Survivor, as Castaway Television views the Celebrity Survivor format as a different format from the regular format. Castaway Television, who produced Nine's series, was again involved in the production of this second Australian season of Survivor.

Filming and development

The show was filmed on the island of Éfaté in Vanuatu, which was used for the 9th season of the American series Survivor: Vanuatu and the 6th season of the french Survivor franchise Koh-Lanta. Production of the series took place over twenty-five days, from late May to early June 2006, with promotional advertising beginning in July. The executive producer of Celebrity Survivor was David Mason, who also produces other shows on the Seven Network, such as Medical Emergency and The Mole Australia

Promotion

Before the series began, Dickson and a few of the Celebrity Survivor contestants appeared on the Seven Network's breakfast news show, Sunrise, to promote the series. This paralleled what occurs in the American version, when the show is promoted on The Early Show, the Australian owned breakfast news program, and what happened during the Nine Network's Australian Survivor venture, when the series was featured on the early morning show, Today and A Current Affair. Amber Petty and Nicolle Dickson, also appeared in television commercials for Olay Total Effects, which were broadcast during the series.

Survivors

11 Australian celebrities were selected to compete, divided initially into two tribes later joined by Ben, a jungle survival expert as a reward after the first Immunity Challenge.
