LOS ANGELES - CBS is looking for a few good survivors.

The network is accepting applications for future installments of Survivor.

Application forms are available on the Web site cbs.com. Applicants must be at least 21 and a citizen and resident of the United States. Candidates must reveal gender, age, marital status, level of education and occupation. Other questions on the seven-page application include:

The third version of the reality show will air this fall, again set in a remote area and with a $1 million prize for the winning contestant.

Applicants must submit an application and a three-minute videotape demonstrating why they believe they can prevail in the game, CBS said. The deadline is April 13.

After paring down the submissions, producers will interview at least 800 semifinalists in 16 U.S. cities, none in the Southeast. About four dozen people will be invited to attend final auditions in Los Angeles to choose the 16 contestants.

Still in the game

An even 100 Augusta Chronicle readers are still in contention for the $100 prize to be awarded at the conclusion of Survivor II: The Australian Outback on April 26. The contestant who received the most votes in our poll, Army intelligence officer Kel Gleason, was eliminated during the show's second episode. Michael Skupin, a software publisher and father of three, is now leading our poll with 20 votes. Twelve players remain.

Survivor II airs Thursdays at 8 p.m. on WRDW-TV (Channel 12).
