Survivor 2013: Jeff Probst Talks About Premiere’s History-Making Moment

Survivor Jeff Probst

When Francesca was voted off Survivor 2013 Caramoan last week, she made show history by becoming the only contestant to be voted off first twice.

And while that’s a really messed up thing to happen to Francesca, Survivor producers (Jeff Probst included) couldn’t have asked for a better premiere moment.

The gentleman in me would like to say ‘it’s a shame Francesca was voted out first once again.  She deserves better.  She’s a good woman,’ ” Jeff told Entertainment Weekly. “But the producer in me is compelled to dig a little deeper into my psyche and once again thank the Survivor gods for blessing us with yet another historic Survivor moment.”

Jeff also talks about what Francesca said she’d do if by some crazy stretch she was voted off first.

“I believe that within the 90 minute premiere, Francesca ponders being voted out first… again, more than a few times,” Jeff said.  “I think she says she will A) eat a rock, B) drown myself.  Francesca, please do not drown yourself, but it might be fun to bring a rock to the live reunion show?”
