During an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Jeff Probst discussed how Rob and Amber would possibly have an effect on Survivor: Winners at War

Probst mentioned, “I don’t know what impact Rob and Amber will have being in the show together, because the obvious thing would be, we’ve got to get rid of one or both. They’re two votes.”

“Unless I’m in an alliance with them, and then I think that’s two more with me right now. So I don’t know that it’s a slam dunk to say they’re one of the first two that should go home,” he continued. 

He went on so as to add, “That’s what is so interesting about this season. You have 20 very smart players, and there is not one way to win. Otherwise Sandra would not have won twice when everybody knew she had already won once. She figured out a way to do it and they voted for her again. So that’s what makes me feel that even though Rob and Amber appear to be the target, Rob and Amber are smart winners. They must have thought through this. They must have an idea.”

However, Probst has additionally mentioned that he would vote out Rob first, if he had an opportunity. He informed Entertainment Weekly, “The guy who still makes me the most uncomfortable is Rob. Because Boston Rob is resourceful like no one I’ve ever seen. He just finds ways to stay in it longer than he should, and every minute that he lasts a little longer than he should, he’s a little closer to getting rid of you. And he is the guy I would take out.”

Meanwhile, the Survivor host thinks that there’s a sleeper decide among the many 20 castaways who can be gathering for Season 40. 

Probst informed EW, “Danni Boatwright. Danni Boatwright is a sleeper. And I don’t think she thinks she’s a sleeper as much as I think she’s a sleeper. But I think she could get, not overlooked, but just sort of passed by early on, like, ‘Oh, I don’t know. She’s fine. She can stay. She can stay.’ And man, that’s a mistake. Danni could win this game. She could win it.”

“I do think there’s a little chip on her shoulder. I do think there’s a part of her saying, ‘You guys see me as someone who played a long time ago, you probably don’t even remember how I played, you don’t give me credit. But I won. And I’m back to win again. I’m not back for the adventure, I’m not back to prove something for my kids. I’m back to just win again. Cause I’m a competitor.’ That’s the thing about Danni, she’s a competitor.”

Jeff Probst has additionally revealed that his favourite winner of all time is none apart from Survivor legend Parvati Shallow. 

Probst defined to Entertainment Weekly, “I’m giving it to Parvati because just watching her play that season, I felt like we were watching a surgeon go inside a body with a really delicate operation and just move things and tighten up, and they did their own stitches at the end, they closed up or whatever they did.”

He added, “I mean, everybody who won this game has been a genius in how they’ve done it because they had to do it in their season. But watching Parvati, still when I go back and I see some of those episodes — tiny little adjustments, all of it about persuasion. She either charmed you or she made you feel the consequence. One or the other. Sometimes, both together.”
