“First we decided on three tribes, that was the first thing. And that was just an effort to change up the way the numbers were playing,” Probst told Entertainment Weekly.
“People were locking into these alliances of five. So we thought, ‘OK, let’s try a three-tribe scenario and see what that does’.”
Speaking of his love for,
“returnees [and] second chances”, Probst continued: “Then we hit on the evacuees and went, ‘That’s it!’ These are true second chances. They were pulled from the game. They didn’t quit. They didn’t get voted out. They were yanked.”
Survivor: Philippines, which was filmed earlier this year in the Caramoan Islands, will air later in 2012 on CBS.
