NEW YORK – Survivor: Africa doesn't debut until Oct. 11, but alleged details are already leaking out.
A Web site called The Ellipsis Brain Trust (www.surviiivor.com) — which is devoted to spoiling the show's secrets before they air on TV — claims to know the names and facts about the game's next group of castaways.
Last season, The Brain Trust developed an uncanny ability to figure out which contestant would get booted from the show before it happened.
The show is wrapping up filming in the Shaba Game Reserve, one of the most popular national parks in Kenya. The reserve is about 140 miles north of Nairobi, Kenya's capital, and is the location where Born Free was filmed.
It is also where Born Free author and wildlife expert Joy Adamson was murdered in 1980.
Meanwhile, USA Today reported that Survivor honcho Mark Burnett has decided to film Survivor 4 in Jordan this fall. One possible site is Petra, an ancient, southwestern city that was featured in the film Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade.
As is customary, CBS officials refused to confirm or deny anything concerning the details of upcoming episodes of Survivor.
The network does not plan to officially release the names of the new contestants until shortly before Survivor: Africa debuts.
According to the Brain Trust, here are the names and some minor details about the next crew of survivors. They are currently sweating it out in Africa.
* Brandon Quinton: Possibly Sigma Gamma Chi from University of Utah school of religion.
