Countdown To 'Survivor III'

It might be the worst kept secret in TV.

The final touches are being put on the "secret" location of "Survivor Three," the next edition of the smash CBS reality show.

The location is a semi-arid public game reserve north of Nairobi, Kenya.

Local officials told the Associated Press that a film crew has leased the park, and people directly involved in making the show won't talk openly for fear of violating a confidentiality deal. There has been no comment yet from CBS officials.

But there's word that 300 crew members will be flown from California and Australia in the coming weeks to start filming.

A casting call has gone out in Nairobi, where people are being picked to give the set a test run before the 16 entrants arrive.
