Ever wonder why Survivor keeps bringing back the men and not the ladies? Well, Jeff Probst says it’s because there aren’t any women who are worthy.
He told Entertainment Weekly: “There just aren’t as many colorful women characters in Survivor history and we’ve used up the ones we can, you know, Parvati and Amanda and Cirie. I mean, not saying they can’t come back. We’d love to have someone like Cirie come back again, but we used them up a lot. And for whatever reason, we’re loaded with interesting guys.”
All three women have been on Survivor three times each.The only person to beat that is Boston Rob, who finally won on his fourth attempt.
Jeff continues, “Maybe it says something about our casting process or maybe it just says something about how men and women behave differently in conflict. Maybe men are a little crazier and lose their minds a little more and thus become more interesting, and women are a little more rational and thus probably better leaders. But for whatever reason, when we look at bringing women back, we are left with saying, ‘If they have to carry the show themselves, are they strong enough?’”
What we want to know is, do you think Jeff has a point – or are there plenty of Survivor castaway ladies who deserve a shot at coming back? Sound off!
