The Russian Television program “The Island” wrapped up on Tuesday bringing the 40 day shoot in Palau to a close.
The Survivor style show named “Octpob” or “The Island” produced by Mastif TV brought dozens of contestants to live in Palau to experience island life, information pills games, ampoule challenges and extreme weather.
Most of the filming took place in the Palau State of Airai where an elaborate ship was constructed for the Tribunal and a massive maze or labyrinth was built for challenges.
The off island crew of nearly 100 consisted of both Russians and Argentineans with many more locals being hired for construction, assistants and more.
Contestants were all Russian celebrities ranging from singers to actors and even a world-champion boxer.
The highly anticipated program will begin airing later this year on one of Russias largest television networks and is expected to increase the number of Russian visitors to Palau.
The local company Roll’em Productions provided the equipment and production support for the show and was the local fixer.
Papago Resort in Airai provided housing of over 60 rooms for the visiting crew.
