As TVNZ announces the show’s premiere date this month, let’s examine the locations of the filming and the participants.
Where is Celebrity Treasure Island 2023 filmed?
The filming of Celebrity Treasure Island 2023 took place in Fiji. This season’s unique concept, which was filmed in Fiji, pits “show super fans” against famous castaways. TVNZ made the announcement of the new castaways in a press release on Sunday morning.
When the show premieres on Monday, January 30, the castaways will be camping in Fiji, returning to the epic treasure hunt’s birthplace. However, this will be the first time in Treasure Island history that a group of well-known castaways from previous seasons will compete against a group of ardent show viewers.
“From watching at home to competing in real life, the fans are ready to take their passion for the show to the next level and take on the team of returning celebrities.”
Who are the participants?
