‘Survivor: Redemption Island’ Jeff Probst is continuing his weekly blog from ‘Survivor: Redemption Island’ episode 3 from March 2, 2011 episode. Jeff Probst as in seasons past will be expressing his view on the previous night’s episode ‘Survivor: Redemption Island.’Here is some of what Jeff Probst had to say about ‘Survivor: Redemption Island’ March 2, 2011 episode 3:
Jeff Probst began his blog by stating, “Survivor fans all over the world will no doubt remember this day for decades, and if science hurries up, perhaps centuries to come. Those that missed the episode will no doubt tell their kids years from now, “I was there. I remember it like it was yesterday. Sitting on the couch and yelling at the TV.” … “After back to back seasons during which he was never voted out, lasting the entire 78 days, Russell Hanz finally met a tribe he couldn’t control.”
Host Jeff Probst went onto talk about the first ‘Survivor: Redemption Island’ duel, “We decided to use smaller versions of previous challenges as the duels because we knew they worked and we didn’t want any risks when it came down to a one-on-one duel.” … “The decision to let two members of each tribe watch was made just a few days before we began. That was Mark Burnett’s call. He was right. It created yet another layer by separating the tribe.” … “The idea for the Redemption Island Arena came early in the process but the design and execution of the Arena was still mind blowing.” … “It was built small enough to remain intimate but large enough to accommodate our cameras. It is one of my favorite builds of all time.”
‘Survivor: Redemption Island’ Phillip Sheppard really a former federal agent? Jeff Probst went onto talk about the thrown Immunity Challenge, “As for the challenge itself, you might remember this from last season. It was a huge construction build and so unique that we decided to use it again. If you are one of the people strapped to the wheel it’s a bit unnerving to be spun round and round while going under water, having to take a gulp of water and then spit it into a tiny trough.” … “When you let the other tribe win a challenge you give them confidence. You give them what they need to begin to believe in themselves. You risk the momentum shifting to them.. Often, you are also giving up a valuable reward.” … “They wanted him out so badly, they not only threw a challenge, but they gave up a TARP! Next to flint, a tarp is the most sought after item on Survivor.”
Jeff Probst ended his blog by stating, “This is brand new territory for Russell but we all know that Russell can never be counted out. He is always playing. But he will have his work cut out for him with Matt. Matt has had a few days to adjust, Matt has been to the Arena before, Matt has already competed and won a duel. On top of it all, Russell thinks he is going to battle against Francesca, a far cry from the athletic abilities of Matt.” … “Will Russell try to intimidate Matt? Will he try to befriend him? Will Matt ask Russell to pray with him? Ah so many good questions.”
