It was announced last night on the Season 36 Finale of Survivor, that current Impact superstar Johnny Impact will be one of the castaways on the upcoming 37th season of the show. Filmed in Fiji’s Mamanuca Islands, the show will air this fall on CBS.
This had been rumored a couple of weeks ago, but was confirmed last night.
This is not the first time that a professional wrestler has appeared on the show; former WWE Diva Search winner Ashley Massaro competed on Survivor: China in 2007. However, she didn’t last very long, as she was the second person voted out of the game.
You can see a preview of the upcoming season, which features a clip of Impact, below:
This is fantastic! I am a HUGE Survivor fan, and cannot wait to see how he fares on the island. It’s always interesting to see professional athletes and regular people interact on the show, and with the personalities that we will see this season, I have no doubt that the entertainment value will be through the roof.
