Host Jeff Probst tells People:
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."
Nph would be a great "Survivor" contestant. And that got us thinking -- who else would we love to see on "Survivor"?
In our minds, one rule is that the contestants cannot be famous for reality TV. That's too much inside baseball. They need to be famous for something other than being on a reality show of any kind.
