Samoa to get boost from new Survivor shoot

Samoa's economy and tourism industry will benefit again with the return of the top rating American television reality show Survivor after the production pulled out of Tonga in February.

Vava'u was the original choice to hosting the 23rd season but failed to secure the necessary logistics needed to film there.

Samoa's Aggie Grey's Resort has been block booked from mid May to September for the production.

Our correspondent in Apia, Autagavaia Tipi Autagavaia, says the show is lucrative for tourist operators with dozens of locals hired during the last shoot in 2009.

"Tonga has lost the bid, Samoa won its bid. So its good to have some money in the local economy. And because they are new competitors they are going to compete for 39 days."
