Each week, host Jeff Probst will answer a few questions about the most recent episode of Survivor: Blood vs. Water.
ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: A few weeks back we saw Tyson offer to take his girlfriend Rachel’s place at Redemption Island if she wanted, and she told him to stay put. This week, Monica asked to take husband Brad’s spot and he declined. Do you think these offers to switch are genuine, or are they simply for show, counting on the fact that their spouse would never ask them to sacrifice themselves like that?
JEFF PROBST: I think it’s a good question. My hunch is that nobody really wants to give up their spot. For instance, I don’t think Rupert really wanted his wife to accept his offer to switch, but he gets so caught up in being Rupert that he sometimes makes decisions that don’t always make the most sense. As for everybody else that has offered to switch thus far, they are probably desperately hoping their loved one declines the offer.
