Stephen Amell may be riding high on the success of his hit CW show Arrow these days, but the 31-year-old originally had his eyes set on the reality TV world.

“I love Survivor,” he told Celebuzz at the People’s Choice Awards red carpet on Wednesday.

“I was totally bummed out because I can’t go on it, because I’m Canadian. I literally tried, a year and a half ago. I met with the casting director and then we found out that I [couldn’t go on]. So, I survived my own fictional island instead. I’m still bitter.”

Amell, who was on hand to present an award for favorite movie actress, looked dapper in an Armani suit for the Los Angeles gathering.

While no specifics were leaked regarding Arrow’s current season, Amell promised viewers that the next couple of episodes will be thrilling.

“We’re really exploring the island right now, spending a lot of time there. And there are some questions that people have been wanting answer to since the pilot, that we’re zeroing in on.”

Arrow airs Wednesdays at 8PM on The CW.
