Each week, host Jeff Probst will answer a few questions about the most recent episode of Survivor: Blood vs. Water.
ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: So, I need some clarification here, sir, on one of the twists. It was my understanding that any one of the loved ones of someone at Redemption Island can sub in before a duel if they like, but we only saw you asking Gervase if he’d like to take Marissa’s place. Is it only the most recent person that was sent there that can be subbed out, or did you just not show you asking Rupert and Candice’s spouses if they wanted to take their place as well?
JEFF PROBST: It was understood that you could take the place of your loved one anytime they were dueling. So everybody knew it was an ongoing opportunity. In the case of Candice and Rupert, it was a bit unique in that we just offered the RI swap beat off the top of the show and they had both made their decisions and it was pretty clear it was a “final answer” so I didn’t hit it too hard again in episode 2. But yes, they can switch out anytime they want, but we will only show it if there is a story. Otherwise it just wastes valuable story time! READ FULL STORY
