    This made me laugh:

    Dalton on EW: "Tony has to needlessly fib because he’s worried if people find out he is a police officer from New Jersey they will think he is too “strategical.” As someone who lives in New Jersey I can assure him that would not be the case."

    I don't mind 2 hours since it WAS back to back episodes and two tribals. I was afraid it was going to be drawn out with only 1 elimination.

    Jeff is the best. He is great at questioning the tribes during TC and isn't afreaid to challenge people if they roll their eyes or say something stupid. Unlike a host like Julie Chen who just wants to be nice to everyone.

    To the person who thinks Morgan is fat, please look at the picture that someone posted on here and explain where you are seeing the fat on her body.

    Its ok I say it every year. Jeff just irks me, I think he has a bit of a napoleon complex. I don't like that he is part of the producers/production of the show and can manipulate as he sees fit. His questioning is borderline interference in the game at times, he pushes to get the results that are good for tv but in doing so takes away from the game. He can make or break a tribal for a player. Yes he is part of the game, has been from the beginning but being a viewer since season 1 I have seen a huge shift in his responsibilities and influence into the game.

    Jeff makes the show and I doubt it would still be on if he were not the host ... deal with him.

    Another Probst fan here. Replace him with anyone else and the show will be off the air after one season.

    Also, I need to avoid that gif of Morgan. I could look at that for hours.

    +1 for Jeff. The day he leaves is almost certainly the last day I watch Survivor... and I've watched every single season. Well, OK, I FF through most of each episode these days but still :p

    Who said j'tia has her phd? I thought she was just a nuclear engineer. That could be just a bachelors degree.

    I seriously doubt that, but we'll never know. Survivor would be just fine (and maybe better) without Probst. His schtick has just gotten old, and he seems to manipulate the game more every season.

    Exactly. One or two of them could have 110 IQ's, and even though technically 130 is in about the top 3%, I never considered 130 particularly "brainy". I would have thought they'd all be 150's.

    Jeff Probst makes Survivor. Kinda like not having milk with your cereal.

    I've heard plenty of interviews with former contestants where they say that they don't get to pick what they wear. The producers dress them for the show. I suspect that if a player showed up to the show with only practical clothes for surviving on a tropical beach, the producers would provide something different and require the player to wear what was provided.

    Otherwise, everyone would show up with sturdy hiking boots, Gore-Tex rain shells, and those pants with the legs that zip off and turn into shorts.

    I think the reason for their clothes is that it gives the impression the contestants were stranded on the island, and not prepared for the environment. Like in the old days when they would pretend the boat is sinking and everyone had 1 minute to grab whatever they could. I loved those openings as opposed to the current 'just show up on the beach' ones.

    You know I always though he would make a good talk show host. :D

    I am sure production request at least 3 outfits in a category and then dictate what to wear. When I was an extra for Dolphin Tale 2 they asked me to bring at least three outfits and wardrobe did make me change my shirt (they didn't like the bright orange on my fair skin, but they loved the Hawaiian Blue shirt :D)
