Survivor challenges coming to EW PopFest

And Jeff Probst will be there to egg you on

Ever wanted to compete in an actual Survivor challenge? And do it against Survivor all-stars? And do it while being cheered on and/or chided by Jeff Probst himself? Well, that dream can now become a reality.

It’s the ultimate experience for Survivor fans as Probst will be appearing at EW PopFest, and he’s bringing some of your favorite players and competitions with him. Attendees on Oct. 29 and 30 will get a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to compete in actual Survivor challenges seen on the show and constructed by challenge producer John Kirhoffer and the Survivor challenge department. Not only that, but some fans will get to compete throughout both days against former Survivor players.

To paraphrase one of Jeff Probst’s go-to lines, wanna know what else you’re playing for? On Oct. 29, Probst will take part in a special Q&A session alongside John Kirhoffer and EW’s very own Dalton Ross. And for the first time ever, fans will be treated to an exclusive extended sneak peek of the next episode (airing Wednesday, November 2).  Probst will then head to the challenge area where fans will be able to compete against former players in various Survivor challenges taken directly from the show for a chance to win an iconic Survivor buff.

So not only will fans be able to compete against former players in Survivor challenges, but they will be the first people in the world to see part of the next episode. Again, as Probst would say, worth playing for?
