Australia's longest-running reality TV show Camp Orange has started filming its tenth season at Sea World on the Gold Coast in Queensland.

Produced by Nickelodeon, Camp Orange is not only Australia's longest-running reality TV show, cutting its teeth when Survivor was the new kid on the block, but was also the first 'original' kids reality series in Australia.

According to Kristie Phelan, executive producer and network creative director at Nickelodeon, this year saw more than 7000 Australian and New Zealand kids audition to be a part of the series. Auditioning entailed kids uploading videos of themselves to the Camp Orange website.

Phelan told B&T that this huge number is whittled down to a shortlist of 150 and then eventually to the final 10 kids.

"We basically look for kids that can talk underwater and that are really outgoing," she said.

The contestants are aged between 10 and 14, which Phelan says is the "sweet spot" between being able to be away for a week and still having "not lost that innocence we are looking for".

The series, which describes itself as "the slimiest show on TV" is locally produced and its format has been adopted globally in the UK and Italy.

Phelan says the secret to its success is its underlying values of friendship and fair play. "It is all about teamwork and celebrating best friends and this is something that every kid can relate to," she said.

Camp Orange is hosted by the Logie-nominated pairing of Luke and Wyatt.

Each year, it follows the same format, but Phelan and the team introduce new challenges and new teams.

Previously the show was filmed in a traditional camping ground, but this year (for the second year running), Camp Orange is being filmed at Sea World on the Gold Coast.

This location gives the series added excitement and Phelan said they were able to experiment with different production techniques such as mounting cameras on rollercoasters.

Camp Orange is a multiple ASTRA-Award-winning (2008, 2009, 2010) local production and is this year nominated for Most Outstanding Reality Program yet again.

Camp Orange: Force 10 premieres on Tuesday, 10 June at 5pm on Nickelodeon.

The 2014 series, Camp Orange: Force 10 is sponsored by Sea World and Razor Scooters.
