When I spoke with Jeff Probst on day 1 of filming for Survivor: Blood vs. Water (which premieres Sept. 18 on CBS), he predicted which of the new players going up against their loved ones would do well. But I also asked him which new players he thought weren’t quite so impressive. And he zeroed right in on the spouse of one of the most famous Survivor players ever — Rupert’s wife Laura.

“I think Rupert’s wife is gonna be a in a whole lot of trouble,” said Probst. Rupert already has a target for many reasons, some of which are yes, he’s won a million dollars and all that. Some of which, he can be a bit of a blowhard at times. But that comes with playing a game like this so many times and being rewarded. I mean, Rupert can do a lot. He’s one of the few guys who can go out in that water with a bare hand and catch a damn fish and go, ‘I’ve got it!’ I mean, that’s pretty cocky. Laura, I don’t see that. Now, she keeps telling me she’s a very good swimmer, so I could be completely surprised by all of this, but just going in on day one, I would say that Rupert’s wife Laura is going to have a hard time out here.”

But Laura wasn’t the only newbie that was going to have a hard time according to Probst. Click on the video player below to see more from the host, including which person he predicts will be “out fast.”
