Jeff's Probst - Season 18 Tocantins

141 posts in this topic

Jeff Probst is starting up his blog again for Survivor 18. Here's a little blurb from his favorite foil at EW, Dalton Ross, that includes a video with an opening sequence with Jeff that is pretty funny.

I'll try to keep the blogs current, but If I'm unable, I'm sure Pinkie will help keep them up to date :pray2:

'Survivor' alert: Jeff Probst yells at poor EW staffer

Feb 11, 2009, 08:00 AM | by Dalton Ross

Jeff Probst is a busy man. The premiere of Survivor: Tocantins is a mere day away, which means he has to start blogging again for EW.com. But does that give him the right to berate yours truly just because I can't figure out how to pronounce the name of his new season? The incident in question went down as Josh Wolk and I were discussing the return of EW.com's Survivor Talk Internet show (which will be back with a special mystery guest as well as the first cast-off on Friday afternoon), and was all caught on camera. See for yourself below. Moral of the story: Don't interrupt the man's breakfast!

Watch the video HERE.

Jeff Probst blogs 'Survivor: Tocantins': episode 1

Mark my words. Survivor: Tocantins will go down as one of your favorite Survivor seasons. I know I've said that about other seasons in the past and check the records, haven't I usually been right? Some seasons I'm not sure how the audience will react, so I say nothing, but when I'm sure, I scream it.

This is me screaming: YES! YES! YES! Say it with me. YES! YES! YES! Yes is my new favorite word. Life is so much more fun when you just let go of your fears and say ''YES'' to whatever. Don't believe me? Try it. Today, just say ''YES'' to everything that comes your way. Let me know how it goes.

Okay, so to episode one. Well, here's something I was dead wrong about. I never thought Carolina would be first out. In fact, I thought she could go a long way. I was way off on that one. Too bad, we always seem to lose a cute girl early. What is wrong with these people? Don't they realize this is their show? They should get rid of the ugly and boring people and keep the attractive and entertaining ones. Like Sydney. Please don't turn around and vote out Sydney next week. Carolina may not have understood how to play Survivor but I'm sure there are a few fans already missing her. Whatever. I get paid either way.

While we're here, let's start the blindside tally. That's the first of what will be a record-setting season of blindsides.

I loved our opening twist. We on the Survivor creative team were all rather proud when we stumbled upon the simple but effective notion of ''first impressions'' as an episode 1 twist. In fact, if I remember correctly, we all downed a case of Brazilian beer as a toast to ourselves. The twist worked and it plays out for quite a while.

Sandy and Sierra are clearly still in trouble as a result of the first impression vote, but you have to admit, it's amazing that neither of them were the first person voted out, all things considered. I think Sandy took a risky approach

His blogs are hilarious!

As for Serena, I don't know if she's a past contestant, but I do know that he did go out with that other Survivor chick for years, and there was even talk of marriage and having children. Remember, the long dark haired girl who tanned with no shorts on way back in the day?? I don't recall her name being Serena, I don't recall it at all honestly. But ya, he has been down the dating contestants road before so that's not a far fetched idea. I think I remember him talking about a Serena in his blog from last season too.

I wonder what happen between he and Julie? I don't remember ever hearing media reports on their breakup. I know, it's not really any of our business...still, I'm nosey.

Jeepers...she'd kill him. Don't get me wrong, Jeff is cute, but I picture him being short and small like. Kind of like Michael J Fox.

God, I love Jeff Probst! He should seriously write a book when the Survivor, the series, is done- it'll be a bestseller for sure!

Okay is that enough for this first episode blog? Serena says, ''Yes, baby, it's enough already. Come to bed, it's late.'' Ah the imagination. It's a terrible thing to waste.

I don't think there is a Serena...I think the key word here is "imagination". He's just messing with us...I think. He did tell us not to believe half of what he wrote. B)

So it must be Coach that Jeff is referring to when he said something about someone being more likeable than even Rupert. WOW, those are some big shoes to fill. Personally, it'll take MAMMOTH shoes to usurp my Rupert love but, hey, we'll see...

I think you're absolutely right on Kayo. I think that 18 cycles into the show, he gets a kick out of messing with the fans.

I have to laugh when I think how we pay such close attention to his preseason interviews looking for spoilers, and once again, Jeff has led us down the "primrose path" :outfitted_pirate:

And tut-tut Pinkie! Not feeling any love for the 60's burnout lookin', hippie castaway Rupert? Doesn't that count as sacrilege? And what's happened to your avi? Looks like you got shorter but fatter.... :smilielol:

Jeff Probst blogs 'Survivor: Tocantins': episode 2

First things first. Did you see our ratings? We went up from last year's premiere! That doesn't happen. Television ratings are crumbling all around us as the networks scramble to figure out how to combat DVR's, kids watching on computers, and iPhones and the like. So when something like this happens to a show in its 18th season, it's big news! And it's all because of you

Anytime it's raining, just know that I'm happy...and yes, a bit turned on.

Here's hoping that if I ever run into Jeff Probst it's during the mother of all rainstorms! ^_^
