A guy who gained fame for crooning Bon Jovi & The Eurythmics at a gas station on The Tonight Show. Another guy who taught a course on Survivor at Northwestern University. A professional barrel racer. These are just three of the contestants that will be competing on Survivor: Worlds Apart when season 30 of the CBS reality show premieres with a special 90-minute episode at 8pm on Feb. 25. Eighteen all new players will be vying for the million dollars and will be separated into three tribes: White Collar, Blue Collar, and No Collar. READ FULL STORY

When Survivor reached its landmark 20th season in 2010, the CBS reality show staged an epic Heroes vs. Villains season featuring 20 former all-star players. The network also invited every single contestant that had ever played to a massive 10-year anniversary party to mark the occasion. It was a huge blow-out affair both on screen and off. Which is what makes the show’s decidedly more reserved approach towards honoring season number 30 and year number 15 so curious. READ FULL STORY
So, I love just about everything when it comes to Survivor. That much has been established over the past 29 seasons. But there is one thing I do not love—the fact that it has been years since the show gave us one of those epic vote delivery montages where Jeff Probst transports the votes from on-location overseas to back here in the United States. There was the time he jetskied the votes past the Statue of Liberty and onto a New York City Subway en route to the Ed Sullivan Theater in New York City. And there was the other time where he jumped out of an airplane with the voting urn and then hopped on a motorcycle to get the votes to CBS Studios in L.A. These epic montages were hilarious and amazing and perfect in every way. READ FULL STORY
Last night, three women made it to the final three on Survivor for the first time in five seasons—and Natalie Anderson, who was clearly the best player, won. (Read Dalton Ross’s recap here.) You’d think that might be a victory for Survivor fans who like to see smart, tough women triumph. Right? But toward the end of the season finale, something happened that so enraged me, I wanted to snuff out my own torch and use it to stab my TV.
Finalist Missy Payne was attacked, very personally and nastily, for acting in a way that’s supposedly unbecoming for a mother. (Her daughter, Baylor Wilson, also competed this season.) First, jury member Alec Christy criticized Missy for not being “motherly” this season. Then Reed Kelly delivered a particularly nasty screed, calling Missy “the wicked stepmother” of the tribe. You can watch his speech below:
Season 29 of Survivor is in the books. Which means it is now time to look ahead to season 30. At the end of tonight’s San Juan del Sur finale, Jeff Probst revealed the title and theme of the next installment to kick off with a special 90-minute premiere on Feb. 25. And now we’ve some got some exclusive background info and additional intel from the host to whet your appetite (as well as the fancy new logo above). READ FULL STORY
The three-hour Survivor: San Juan del Sur finale/reunion extravaganza kicks off tonight at 8pm on CBS. Who are the contestants with the clearest path to victory? Is there anyone with no path to victory? And how big a role will Missy’s hurt foot play? We asked Jeff Probst for his thoughts on all of that and what to expect at the live reunion. Read on for intel and insight from the host. READ FULL STORY
Every week, host Jeff Probst will answer a few questions about the latest episode of ‘Survivor: San Juan del Sur — Blood vs. Water.’
ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: You bastard! You got me! I’ve been talking all season about how Josh is getting a “winner’s edit,” and now the dude is out of the game! But what amazes me the most is how folks still can neglect people on the fringes of their alliance. You and I have spoken countless times over the years about the importance of making the people at the bottom of the totem pole feel important, and it looks like it came back and bit someone else in the butt as the men in Jaclyn’s alliance ignored her while Jon was gone. Why does this kind of stuff still happen?
JEFF PROBST: The only answer I can put forth is it’s further evidence that all of us humans have massive blind spots. For whatever reason, the same mistakes happen season after season on Survivor. It’s not for lack of bright players, it’s just something about human nature, how we process information and what happens to our awareness when we are deprived of the basics such as food, shelter, and comfort.
