BREAKING NEWS: ‘Survivor’ Contestant Gerald Babin Dies, Season Canceled!

Posted on Mar 26 2013 - 3:54pm by Tracy

The production company and the network behind the popular reality show “Survivor”, the French edition called “Koh Lanta”, was forced to cancel the show after a contestant died during a challenge.


The competition show was canceled last Friday after Gerald Babin died from a heart attack in Cambodia. The man fell ill on Friday during the first day’s filming on Koh Rong, off Cambodia’s southwestern coast.

The broadcaster said Babin had a medical examination during the show’s selection process, like other contestants.

According to Cambodian police there were no suspicious circumstances.

“There will be no further investigation because he died from a heart attack,” local deputy police chief Kol Phally said.

The remaining cast members were flown out of Cambodia to Paris a few hours later.

Channel TF1 and Adventure Line Productions released a statement saying they are “devastated” the Babin’s death.
