Survivor 41 winner already revealed in Fiji, no live reunion
For the first time since Borneo in 2000, Survivor revealed their latest winner on-site at the end of the Last Tribal Council instead of waiting for the reunion live in Los Angeles.
Inside Survivor previously reported the news on our official Patreon page, where we confirmed that the reveal of the final vote took place in Fiji for seasons 41 and 42. Survivor host and executive producer Jeff Probst has now all but confirmed the change in an interview with Weekly entertainmentit’s Dalton Ross.
âYes, we were faced with our own dilemma when it came to deciding how to handle the final Tribal Council and revealing the winner,â said Probst of how the pandemic played out in the production process. . Last years Winners in war the finale saw Probst reading the final votes from his garage on a Zoom call due to COVID-19 restrictions.
âBut it was more risk against risk! Should we risk it and do what we always do in the hopes of being able to make a live final in the United States? “He continued.” Or should we risk it and announce the winner in the jungle of Fiji hoping the secret remains a secret? What would you do? You will have to watch to find out what decision we made.
Inside Survivor can confirm that not only the final vote took place there, but the reunion as well. This means that the reunion took place immediately after the final Tribal Council and only included the finalists and those who made the jury. The pre-jurors had already returned home by then.
It remains to be seen if a separate reunion will take place with the entire cast now that the restrictions have eased. However, to our knowledge, there are no plans to have a live meeting in Los Angeles at this time.
