PARADISE Hunter, a new Canadian television show, is scheduled to make a stop in Jamaica this month for filming.
According to Dennis Kambeitz, director of the reality leisure series, filming will take place from October 23-30.
"We do our best to experience all that the destination has to offer. From regional activities, to cultural events, to simply getting to know the locals. We've got one week to try to get to know the soul of Jamaica," Kambeitz told the Jamaica Observer.
Filming will be done on the north coast, from Ocho Rios to Negril. According to Kambeitz, the production team plans to capture authentic Jamaican scenes including roadside vendors, a trip to Dunn's River Falls and Mystic Mountain in St Ann, and snorkelling and cliff-diving in Negril.
He spoke about the premise of Paradise Hunter, which debuts next year on Canada's OLN channel.
"From haggling with the local fishmonger on the beach to zipping through a lush green forest on a canopy tour, you will get the inside scoop on what life is like in different regions within each country. We also explore the local real estate market to help you compare prices from country to country, helping you plan your escape to paradise," he said.
Jamaica is one of several destinations on the calendar of the show's host Ryan Van Duze. In the season's final episode, he will receive a property worth US$150,000.
