Jeff Probst has seen so many Survivor Probst has faced many challenges over the past two decades and is a host who knows when something is wrong. Probst took action on March 23 to stop a safety challenge for immunity before it was completed for the first time ever in show history. The tribes were engaged in a contest. “Spiral Architect”Probst could warn contestants that they were in danger and challenged them.
The challenge required contestants from each tribe to walk a ladder down to the beach. They would then grab a key. They used the key to access a second challenge in which they threw sandbags at a pole with play-extending from it. They had to place as many sandbags as possible on those plates.
Unfortunately, SurvivorThe game was ignored by the ocean waves. They kept coming in, growing to the point that the water was nearly a foot above some players’ heads while they tried to drag the ladders. The water was so moving that neither tribe could swim further, the water had to be pushed over their heads. Probst called an end to the chaos and asked everyone to return to the beach.
“All right, both tribes, drag your ladders in. Come in!”Probest stated, notes Primetimer. “Due to no lack of effort on your part, this is not getting any easier. We’re gonna retrieve your keys and give them to you, and we’ll continue the challenge from here. Sound fair? Never done this in the history of Survivor.”
After both tribes had returned to the shore, they were able to complete the sandbag toss portion without problems. Tribe Ika won the challenge thanks to Drea Wheeler. Jenny Kim was eliminated in the final episode.
Probst had already stopped another challenge before. Decider notes. Probst accused the players of manipulating a reward challenge in 2014. “I am always thinking like the audience and within about ten seconds I was completely bored watching them ‘talk it out,'”Probst told Entertainment Weekly. “My brain did a fast-forward and I realized we are going to sit here for 15 minutes and smash skulls that have absolutely no bearing on the outcome because they are deciding it right now. So I honestly didn’t even think twice, I just listened to my screaming gut and called it off.”
