What exactly is Celebrity Island?
Basically, Celebrity Island is a spin-off series of The Island with Bear Grylls. The show works exactly the same way as the non-star version. They leave a bunch of people on an island and it is a fight for survival. They're left with nothing but very few mediocre tools, clothes, medical supplies and 24-hours worth of water (mental, right?).
If you're a fan of Bear Grylls you may already know that he also produced a similar survival show with celebs in 2015 and 2016, it was called Mission Survive. Celebs were given tasks and voted out if they couldn't keep up with the rest. However, a major difference between the two shows is that that, there is no winner of Celebrity Island. All celebs have to try and make it to the end.
Where is the Celebrity Island filmed?
Well, the islands form part of an archipelago in the Pacific. There are 200 islands named as Las Perlas or Pear Islands. The largest island is called Isla del Rey… but its populated and stars aren't sent to populated islands and are left on deserted ones to fight for survival. The doctor in the group is Sara Kayat.
