Someone save Jeff Probst! That was my thinking after watching the first few minutes of the Survivor: Carmaoan — Fans vs. Favorites premiere (which airs tonight at 8pm on CBS). I’m not sure I’ve ever seen him deliver his big “1 Survivor” line and wondered, “How did they do that? And how is he still alive?” But I did this time. And you can see what I’m talking about as we exclusively present the first five minutes of the premiere right her and right now for your perusal. In it, you will get to see how both the Fans and Favorites arrive, as well as some classic moments from seasons past. All shall be revealed in the video player below. Watch and see for yourself!
