Jonathan Penner and Jeff Probst have a habit of mixing it up. Turns out the player doesn’t like getting sassed by the host and usually has a biting reply on the tip of his tongue. So perhaps it is no surprise to learn that it takes but a few seconds for them to go at it again at the start of Survivor: Philippines (which debuts Sept. 19 on CBS). In the video below (shot on location in the Caramoan Islands), Probst gives the lowdown on what happened when he tried to give Penner an ultimatum at the outset of the game. Penner’s response is…well, pure Penner.

Probst also chimes in on all three returning players (Penner, Mike Skupin, and Russell Swan), and why they’re back. Just click on the video player below and see if you agree with Penner’s retort. And for more Survivor news and views, follow me on Twitter @DaltonRoss.
