CBS’s Survivor season 45 is making its much-awaited return this month! While viewers anticipate what this season holds, host Jeff Probst gives a glimpse of the new challenges and intricacies that accompany the modern version of the show. The best part? It all comes with longer 90-minute episodes every week!
“We have a lot of smart players this year, and they’re smart storytellers. And now we’ll have time to really get inside their story, where they’re from, what they believe, how they approach the game,” Probst reveals.
Furthermore, he delves into the introduction of Bruce, the initial returning player in the modern Survivor era, who suffered an injury just minutes into the preceding season. “I lost it; I was crying,” Bruce remarks, receiving the news.
Additionally, we get to listen to some of the contestants competing for the coveted title of Sole Survivor and the grand prize of $1 million. “The focus that I have is to give off golden retriever energy. I’m ready to talk to someone. I’m ready to hang out,” castaway Kaleb Gebrewold shares.
Probst goes on to clarify, “Trying to play this game alone in the new era is really tough,” emphasizing how the game has evolved to become more intricate and demanding.
Survivor Season 45 begins September 27.
