Jeff Probst has been the host of the CBS show Survivor for 22 years and 42 seasons. Now, season 43 of the reality show is ready to start this fall. When a group of strangers is stuck in a remote place, we can expect them to face new problems, form new bonds, and lie to each other.
The end goal is always the same: to win $1 million and be the only person left. The stranded people are being sent to the Mamanuca Islands, which are a group of 20 islands in Fiji. Since season 33, this is where the show has been filmed.
Probst told Entertainment Weekly, “I hope we stay here forever,” He said that it has everything they need, like beautiful water, beaches, the jungle, and wildlife.
When will the 43rd season of Survivor come out?
On September 21, the first two hours of the new Survivor season will air. You can watch the episode at 8 p.m. ET/PT, so prepare your bathrobe. The 43rd season of Survivor airs every Wednesday at 8 pm ET/PT on CBS.
You can stream the most recent episodes on Paramount Plus the next day. The Amazing Race season 34 also airs on CBS on Wednesday nights, at the same time as Survivor.

What is the point of the show Survivor?
As usual, on Survivor, the castaways are split into tribes, (probably) form alliances, and compete in physically and mentally challenging rewards and immunity challenges while in a remote location with little food. The point? To outthink, outplay, and outlast every other player to win $1 million.
This season, the focus is on the society made by the players. If you have seen a previous season, you know that it is all about adapting to your surroundings. “What we are going to look at this season is how the society they create affects the game they are playing,” Probst said.
“You have to figure out what the values, norms, and rules of this society are because they make the rules.
Who is the host of Survivor?
If Jeff Probst was not the host, would it still be Survivor? He is the only host the show has ever had for more than 20 years, and he is back for his 43rd season. The 60-year-old has been nominated for 10 Emmys and has won four for Outstanding Host For A Reality or Reality-Competition Program.
If you can believe it, Probst quit the hit TV show in 2009 because he was tired of it. But he returned after taking some time off and making changes to the production team. “My Achilles’ heel for a lot of my life was that nobody saw me as a storyteller, that they saw me as a white guy with dark hair who was just a game show host,” he told The New York Times (opens in new tab).
“And that was the thing that could kill me regarding how I saw myself. It felt like a punch to the kidneys.”
