Neil Patrick Harris can sing, act and dance, and he currently makes women fall to their feet on How I Met Your Mother every Monday night. What can’t he do? Neil Patrick Harris wants to find that out with a celebrity edition of Survivor.
Jeff Probst, the host of Survivor, which has endured a lengthy season run of 26-seasons, has said that there’s some interest in a celebrity version of Survivor. Besides Neil Patrick Harris, it’s reported that producers had to turn away actress Kate Hudson when she showed up to audition to be a contestant on the show.
“Mark Burnett and I really want to do a celebrity version. We were just talking about this at a Grammy party last week. Neil Patrick Harris was there, and he told me flat out he wants to play. I challenged him and said, ‘Do you really want to do it, or is this just a fun fantasy that will never happen?’ He said, ‘I want to do it.’ “
How would a celebrity edition even go down? Getting a group of celebrities together for weeks would take a lot of schedule clearing for all parties involved. Apparently, Probst has that all worked out and suggests that best way to handle a celebrity version of Survivor is to shoot for ten days.
