Before every season, Survivor host Jeff Probst tells me the players he thinks have a good shot to win. But what’s always more fun is when he IDs the players he thinks can’t take home the million dollars. At the top of his list for Survivor: Philippines is a former Miss Teen Utah, Angie Layton: “She’s just naïve,” Probst told me on location right as filming on the season began. “She has a beautiful tan. And she’s concerned about it. And that’s a clue. You shouldn’t be thinking about that. Angie’s probably three years too early for this game and we probably shouldn’t have put her on.”

Who else doesn’t have what it takes to win? Check out the video below to see who else is on Probst’s list of people that need to prove him wrong. And for more Survivor news and views, follow me on Twitter @DaltonRoss.
