A group of B-list celebrities is stranded in Costa Rica, with their fate in the hands of viewers in this retooling of the British reality show. The celebrities compete in survival-themed challenges to earn extra food, supplies and luxury items, and viewers vote them off the show one by one. Although former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich had been asked to take part in the new season on NBC, a judge refused him permission to leave the country while awaiting trial on corruption charges. The last celebrity standing wins cash to be donated to his or her favorite charity.
