This link represents life (http://www.boston.com/ae/tv/articles/2005/04/01/survivor_coming_to_boston/). The CBS bellwether reality show will unveil its first-ever urban version of “Survivor,” and has selected Boston as its host city. Taping will begin in late September.

The source did reveal a few snippets of the show, including a task where contestants must live in Fenway Park for a weekend series against the Yankees, dressed in pinstripes, with only $10 for food. Another task involves blindfolded contestants in a subway race from Dorchester to Malden, during rush hour, that must involve every line on the T.

A relay race in full scuba gear through a leaky Big Dig tunnel is also in the works, according to the source. He also said the two tribe names would be, “Tribe Affleck” and “Tribe Damon.”

My bet is this "anonymous source" is pulling an April Fool's Day prank, but it would be great if it were true?

April fools prank. Has to be.

How could they prevent other people interfering with the challenges? Blindfolded in rush hour, on the subway? Not a chance.
