The villains are clearly much more compellling, its always the case. Last season would have sucked without Russell, Coach made Toncatins very entertaining, Boston Rob was the only reason to watch All Stars.

Jeff Probst renews 'Survivor' contract

(Entertainment Weekly) -- Good news, Survivor fans: Jeff Probst, whose contract on the CBS hit reality show was expiring, has decided not to snuff his own torch...yet. The host tells EW.com he will be back on the show past the season's 20th edition, "Heroes vs. Villains" (which kicks off Thursday night at 8pm).

"What has kept me interested in "Survivor" for 20 seasons is the study of human nature," said Probst. "How we justify our ethics, and watching what happens to people when they are put in situations of extreme conflict. Sometimes it's hard to watch, and sometimes it's enjoyable to watch, but it is always interesting to watch."

But, like any good "Survivor" story, this one has a twist. When Probst renewed his contract in the past (after seasons 12 and 16), it was for four cycles over two years. His latest renewal, however, covers only seasons 21 and 22 and will expire in 2011. While that would seem to indicate that the host is ready to finally call it quits and take his act elsewhere next spring, Probst insists that is not necessarily the case. "I'm not approaching this as my last year of Survivor," says Probst. "I was just comfortable taking it one year at a time. It certainly made it easier for me to just commit to one year and then we can revisit it again next year if everybody wants to."

As for what factor "Live for the Moment" (the CBS reality pilot-turned-special that Probst created and hosted) may have played in his decision to return, Probst admits that the show opened his eyes to several things -- both good and bad --but played no role in his deciding to come back.

"Live for the Moment showed me how fun it is to do something new and to explore new topics. It also is a great reminder that it is very, very difficult to get a show on the air, let alone find an audience. But I want to be clear: It had nothing to do with whether I was coming back to "Survivor" or not. This was just taking a moment after 10 years to take a look at my future, and where I saw it going, and what I wanted to do with it, before signing my contract."

Still, with Probst showing a desire to try his hand at different projects (like "Live for the Moment" and filling for Regis Philbin on "Live with Regis and Kelly"), and now only signing up for a one-year commitment, one has to wonder if his days of informing unlucky contestants that "the tribe has spoken" are nearing an end. And whether the show could continue without him. On that last subject, Probst has no doubts: "I have always said that my belief is that the star of "Survivor" is "Survivor:" It is the format. So yes, if there came a point where I decided I was leaving "Survivor," I absolutely believe someone else could take over." Thanks to his new contract, it will be at least a year before we find out if he's right.

For more on what Jeff's decision means for his passport, and if he will ever drag Kelly Ripa out to location, check out Jeff's interview on People.com. And for video of Jeff Probst on location in Samoa discussing the upcoming "Heroes vs. Villains" season (and why certain people didn't make it), watch our exclusive 3-part video below.

I was so excited when I read the news today that Jeff Probst is remaining with Survivor! I was so worried this might be the last season. Best news of the day! And the show starts Thursday!!

I agree.

That's nice of him to say that the star of "Survivor" is Survivor, but the truth is, Jeff has had a huge influence on setting the tone of the show. If he left, I've no doubt the show could continue, but it would be poorer for his loss. After all, as ER shows us, just because a show CAN continue, doesn't mean it should.

I don't want to see Survivor drift off the air after a long terminal illness.

Wow what a great night and great first episode! Cant believe all the injuries already. Heroes tribe seems to be more together as far as camp stuff but I think this season is going to be pretty even to be honest. And Sugar, ugh wth? Still crying. Probably why she got voted out. She's too emo for this game.

So, if anyone wants to know about my party, here's the deets.

The survivors that attended this party were Yau-Man (Fiji), Sonja (Borneo), Chad (Vanuatu) and Mary (Micronesia). Vecepia flaked and Lex flaked as well. I figured Lex would flake. There were also the Cho brothers from Amazing Race.

Yau-Man is awesome. I've met him once before and I love him. He's friendly, out going, and just really a good guy. He organized the shin dig and made his rounds and said hello to everyone.

Chad I thought was kind of a douche. We were talking to him and my friend asked if he would have got asked to come do HvV would he have said yes and he told us basically 'dont try to contact them. if they want you they'll get a hold of you'. He said when he moved he called them and let them know his new info and if they ever needed anything just call etc. He actually seemed kind of bitter for some reason. Like mad they never called him. He also trash talked Stephenie. Said he didnt think she was all that and what the show made her out to be, that he knew the real Stephenie. I was kind of taken aback to be honest as I just met the guy and he proceeded to bad mouth a fellow survivor and one of my favorites! But, he was nice enough to us and friendly and answered a lot of questions.

Sonja was also very friendly and wore her special 10th anniversary buff, and had her survivor t-shirt on. She was cute. Also, she is not a Russell fan.

Mary was really outgoing and really pretty. I met her outside having a cigarette and we talked about Crazy Kathy and smoking and she told me how Kathy basically went crazy and told producers she would cut off her fingers if they didnt get her out of there. She was wearing all kinds of nicotine patches and what not. Apparently once she got off the show to the other island she didnt even want to eat or take a shower she just wanted to chain smoke cigarettes.


So during the commercials, Yau-Man and Chad answered questions and talked about behind the scenes things which I thought were cool. How tribal councils last like 2 hours, how when Jeff goes and tallys the votes it takes like 20 minutes, and how they all have to tell the producers who they're voting for ahead of time. It was really interesting information.

Yau-Man also said (once the show was over) that Sugar had some kind of emotional breakdown on loser island and had to be shipped home.


So, here is a short clip of them answering questions and also a few pics.

Can't really have a better premiere than that. My favorite moment was Randy telling Rob not to build a fire.

Chos seem like nice guys...they had a strategy on The Amazing Race to help two other teams they befriended which kind of worked against them. The Amazing Race 10, great season.
