After completing a successful sixteenth season, the show that started it all, the granddaddy of all reality shows, "Survivor" will be back this September for Season 17. The upcoming season "Survivor: Gabon--Earth's Last Eden" sends the show back to the continent of Africa. According to EW.com, filming for this season will begin in late June, which means 18 lucky people have probably already been cast to participate in the show's next big adventure.
