With the premiere of Survivor: Winners at War just a few weeks away on Feb. 12, fans are already prognosticating and predicting what will happen on the show’s 40th season. We thought it would be fun to force the cast members themselves to make some bold predictions for what would transpire out on the island. That’s why we asked them out on Fiji right before filming began to hit us with their big prophecy.
Which player predicted a physical fight would break out, and not at a challenge? Which contestant believes someone will channel their inner Erik Reichenbach and Brandon Hantz and give up an immunity necklace? Which two returnees were convinced the season would not just be comprised of 20 winners? And who forecasted that only moms are going to the end? Find out by watching the video above and brace yourself as these budding Nostradamuses attempted to predict the future — which is always a dangerous thing to do when playing Survivor. And then wait to see who was right.
Will anyone do as well as Survivor: Edge of Extinction’s Eric Hafemann when we asked him to predict what would happen on season 38? Only time will tell, although that wily Ethan Zohn is off to a pretty good start.
