How to Apply For Shipwrecked 2020

With Shipwrecked 2019 being such a huge hit, Channel 4 is more than likely going to bring the show back for 2020.

If you want to spend the summer of 2020 on a scorching hot paradise island then head over to Channel 4’s website.

The auditions for the 2019 show opened in May 2018 so we can expect the applications to open in May time 2019.

The Shipwrecked cast criteria states that you have to be aged between 18 and 30 years old.

You may also be required to submit photos and an audition video of yourself.


Where is the Shipwrecked 2020 Location?

Although details for the 2020 show have not yet been confirmed, the location will most likely remain the same.

For the 2019 show, filming took place on two sand islands in the lagoon at Aitutaki in the Cook Islands.

Aitutaki is well-known for its stunning palm-tree lined beaches, central lagoon and uninhabited islands, and has a population of just over 2,100.

The Islanders are dropped off by boat and have to fend for themselves. Although the 2019 show did spark some outrage on Twitter with viewers confused as to why the Shipwrecked cast had shelters already made for them on arrival.
