Tyra Banks, Alfonso Ribeiro Set as ‘Dancing With the Stars’ Hosts on Disney+



When CBS’ Survivor returned after a lengthy pandemic-induced hiatus, it came back swinging for the fences. Both Season 41 and 42 saw major, never-before-seen changes to the game – which included reducing the time players actually played, production breaking the fourth wall and nearly half a dozen new twists arising. Truth be told, the onslaught of twists felt almost too complicated at times from a viewer’s standpoint, and executive producer/host Jeff Probst is addressing whether they are indeed getting way too complex with their schemes.

To briefly recap, among the new additions to the competition’s oeuvre, so to speak, was the Do-or-Die twist, the prisoner’s dilemma, the Season 42’s contestant-baffling Shot in the Dark, the 3-way tribe idols and the hourglass twist. And to be fair, each of them created interesting scenarios – if not downright, utter chaos, according to at least one former player. (Less we forget, the cast famously almost “went to rocks” in Season 42, which hasn’t been seen in ages.) Nevertheless, Jeff Probst thinks the criticisms about those same twists are equally as “fair.” He said to The Wrap:

Yes, there is always the risk of going too far. It’s a real risk. And the scary part is that you can’t change it after you’ve done it. So, it goes back to being comfortable with the risk of having a massive failure. We knew we were going big. And we anticipated that fans and players might think it was a bit too much out of the gate. But we wanted the players to have to reassess everything they thought they knew about Survivor. Everything.
