Three time Survivor contestant Parvati Shallow, who took home $1,000,000 as the winner of Survivor: Micronesia Fans vs. Favorites, has been tapped to host the third season of CBS interactive series Around the World for Free.
After an appearance on CBS’s The Talk on July 8, Shallow will embark on a 100 day journey across the world, armed with nothing more than a backpack and an AT&T-powered smart phone and tablet.
Shallow will be travelling without any money or pre-arranged transportation and lodging—she’s relying on the kindness of strangers and advice from fans who will interact with her through Twitter and a special interactive map on CBS.com.
According to “Parvati’s Rules of the Road,” only locals can help her get around, and if she gets stuck CBS will only help her out with four overseas flights.
“Adventure and travel have been main priorities in my life since I was a child, and what better way to combine my passions than exploring the world while having no idea what will await each new day?” said Shallow. “I am counting down the minutes until I will be discovering hidden corners of the planet, meeting people from completely different cultures and backgrounds, and experiencing human compassion at its very best. Around the World For Free is a true testament to the generosity and kindness of the human spirit.”
