Jeff Probst is once again hosting Survivor, and it has been about four years since the last Fans Vs Favorites season. “It is truly unpredictable. There’s a couple things that have never happened,” he said of the long-running series.

He said that the unexpected nature of the gameplay and the unscripted structure of the show allows the contestants to keep even producers guessing with twists and strategic moves. The 10 fans chosen for this season were picked because they looked up to particular past contestants.

But the adoration or idolization of past contestants and Survivor legends could lead to some fans’ downfall. Probst said he still loves hosting the show, but it is hard to be away from his family. The show films two seasons back-to-back, which means he is on location for about three and a half months.

He praised his wife for keeping the family going while he is away, and said that they stay connected via Skype. The co-hosts agreed that Sharon Osbourne would not fare well in the Survivor competition.

Jeff explained that he had to be tethered to a climber to shoot the remarkable opening shot from the top of a tall and narrow rock. He said that you have to believe you will be fine to manage your nerves and get those great shots.

Survivor: Caramoan Fans Vs Favorites premieres February 13 2013 and airs Wednesdays on CBS.
