      Reviving this thread from IDF for S32, since it appears IDF won't be coming back anytime soon (if at all):

      - The title for the season is "Koh Rong"
      - It was filmed in Cambodia (just like Second Chances will be)
      - It will be Brains v Brawn v Beauty 2.
      - According to Redmond, the conditions were "brutal". Temperatures got up to 120 degrees, bug bites were terrible, the cast and crew got really ill. It was so bad that some of the crew decided to quit and go home. They will never go back to that location again.
      - Tribe Colors are Blue (Brains), Red (Brawn), Yellow (Beauty)
