As with previous editions of the program, once all the tapes have been reviewed, the producers will fly to cities across the country to conduct in-person interviews with the selected semi-finalists. According to information released by CBS, approximately 800 semi-finalists will be interviewed in 12 American cities.
The regional interviews will then be used to determine the approximately 48 finalists who will fly to Los Angeles in September 2005 for additional interviews and extensive physical, psychological and background checks. A final cutdown will form the group of contestants who will participate in the twelfth installment of Survivor, which will be filmed in late 2005 and broadcast in Spring 2006.
