Each week, host Jeff Probst answers a few questions about the most recent episode of ‘Survivor: Caramoan — Fans vs. Favorites’.
ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: Loved this episode, but I want to start with a procedural question for you about the reward challenge. We saw the purple team throw first, and the purple team was the first one to get to four points and were then declared the winners. But shouldn’t the orange team — since they were shown as having gone second — have been allowed one more throw to match and tie and possibly send the contest into another tiebreaker round? Or was there more to the competition that didn’t make it to the final edit?
JEFF PROBST: Good eyes. That match was originally played to five but due to so much great stuff happening in the episode we shaved it down to four points! You bring up an important point — there are times where we might reduce the number of total points played in a challenge but it obviously never changes the outcome. Whoever wins, wins. Sometimes we just have too much show and in this case, that’s a good thing!! I love how closely you watch our show and I always love it when you love an episode! READ FULL STORY
