'Survivor' host Jeff Probst on importing other reality stars

Something weird happened last year on Survivor. A contestant from another CBS reality show appeared on the program. Previously, CBS had imported stars from Survivor and Big Brother onto The Amazing Race. And it also cast Willie Hantz — brother of Survivor’s Russell and uncle of Survivor’s Brandon — on Big Brother. But Survivor — which is still considered the granddaddy and gold star of reality television, even if it doesn’t have the Emmy awards (or nominations, for that matter) to prove it — had never accepted sloppy seconds from another CBS show.

That all changed when Big Brother 12 champion Hayden Moss showed up on Survivor: Blood vs. Water. But that casting at least made a little sense. Hayden had actually originally auditioned for Survivor instead of Big Brother, and the fact that he was dating Survivor contestant Kat Edorsson allowed him to tag along as her loved one for that Blood vs. Water season. But would that be an isolated incident?

The answer is no. For the second Blood vs. Water go round on Survivor: San Juan del Sur (premiering Sept. 24 on CBS), the show has now gone and imported an Amazing Race duo: twins Nadiya and Natalie Anderson. The “Twinnies” — who appeared on seasons 21 and 24 of Race — are a love it or loathe it duo for fans, and I was curious as to Probst’s thoughts on bringing aboard more contestants from another show. I spoke with the host out on location in Nicaragua on day one of filming to ask him about it, and now you can see his response in the video player below. READ FULL STORY

'Survivor' host Jeff Probst defends the casting of John Rocker

Survivor has had its fair share of villains over the years. But it has also had a few people that have gone past that line of villainous play into something far more distasteful. There have been productive conversations about race relations —like when Jeff Probst (in one of his finest moments) mediated a dispute between Phillip and Steve on the Redemption Island season — but there have also been insensitive remarks hurled that have made viewers as uncomfortable as the contestants.

Keeping that in mind, I asked Probst if he was concerned that bringing in baseball pitcher John Rocker — who made controversial remarks in the past — might lead to more of that type of behavior. I had already asked Rocker himself if he thought that infamous Sports Illustrated article would follow him into the game, and now I wanted to see the host’s logic for casting someone with such a background. Probst was resolute in his support for bringing in the former Atlanta Braves closer, and you can now see and hear his complete thoughts by clicking on the video interview below. READ FULL STORY

naked-and-afraid

Apparently deciding that one stint out in the wild was not enough, a former Survivor contestant has returned to rough it out in the elements, but he forgot one thing: his clothes. That’s right, a former Survivor player will be appearing on this Sunday’s episode of Naked & Afraid on Discovery at 10pm. Who’s the adventurous chap of which we speak? READ FULL STORY

See Jessica Biel make a tart entrance in 'New Girl' season 4 premiere

As New Girl kicks off its fourth season, the gang attends a wedding, and everyone is in the mood for lust.

It’ll be no surprise to diehard roomfriends that Jess (Zooey Deschanel) is the loftmates’ best hope in this arena—but she has one major obstacle in the form of sexy genius Kat (guest star Jessica Biel), who’s also vying for the affections of the best man (Reid Scott).

In this exclusive First Look, Jess and Kat exchange rapid-fire barbs as Kat lays out the argument for why she should get first dibs on the only guy within a garter’s throw. Jess’s cogent, hard-hitting response? Kill her opponent with kindness… or just confuse her with a “vagina voice.” READ FULL STORY

The new 'Survivor' players reveal if they would vote out their own loved ones

One of the most dramatic moments of last year’s Survivor: Blood vs. Water season was when Ciera Eastin voted her own mother, Laura Morett, out of the game. (Awkward Thanksgiving dinner, anyone?) Now that Survivor is bringing back the Blood vs. Water twist of loved ones competing with and against each other for Survivor: San Juan del Sur, it got me wondering: Would any of the new players vote out their special someone?

'Survivor' host Jeff Probst on the pair that dropped out and a possible final two

There were supposed to be 10 pairs of loved ones competing on this season’s Survivor: San Juan del Sur — Blood vs. Water (which debuts Sept. 24 on CBS). But then, just days before filming began in Nicaragua, one of the couples was forced to bow out after a last minute-medical check turned up something that gave the Survivor medics pause. The same thing actually happened during the last Blood vs. Water season when RC Saint-Amour and her father had to drop out while on location due to medical reasons involving the dad. In that instance, Candice and John Cody were flown in at the last minute to replace them. (They arrived in the Philippines less than 24 hours before filming began.) READ FULL STORY

Watch a sneak peek of the 'Big Brother' Jeff and Jordan engagement

The ultimate Big Brother alliance was formed on Friday when former players Jeff Schroeder and Jordan Lloyd got engaged in the Big Brother backyard and then celebrated with this season’s current crop of contestants. (Sadly, neither the Zingbot nor Otev made an appearance. Nor was Mr. PEC-tacular around for this particular bit of Big Brother history. Still stuck in Pandora’s Box perhaps?)

The ultimate BB reality showmance moment — with apologies to Mike Boogie’s season finale proposal to Krista back in season 2 —will air on tonight’s episode (and will include country star Brett Eldredge performing for the happy couple. Take that, Sheryl Crow!) But you can get an exclusive sneak peek right here and right now. Watch Jeff trick Jordan into thinking she’s taking part in a competition. Watch Jeff tell Jordan, “Five years ago we met here, so I wanted to come full circle.” And then watch Jeff drop to one knee. READ FULL STORY

New 'Survivor' player John Rocker discusses his controversial 'Sports Illustrated' article

The new season of Survivor: San Juan del Sur will feature all new players, but among the cast are a few familiar faces. And the most familiar — and controversial — is former Major League Baseball pitcher John Rocker (who will be competing with his girlfriend Julie McGee). Rocker pitched for the Atlanta Braves in the 1999 World Series in a losing effort against the New York Yankees, but the closer made even bigger headlines in a Sports Illustrated article that came out later that year.
