The secret is out on the contents of the contract contestants have to sign to appear on “Survivor,” and CBS isn’t happy about it, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Included in the agreement, which has been posted on the Reality Blurred Web site–in between being taken down and put back up as CBS attorneys complain to the Web site about it–are a number of interesting revelations, the story says. One of these is the confidentiality agreement, with a penalty of $5 million for breaking it.

Other highlights of the 32-page contract include requirements that contestants submit to psychological exams and lie detector tests, give CBS an exclusive option for a talent holding agreement, agree to be considered an employee of the producer for workers’ compensation purposes and agree to be subjected to “severe mental stress,” the story reports.
