‘Survivor’ Host Jeff Probst Reveals How He Started Saying ‘The Tribe Has Spoken’ On Every Episode. If there’s one reality TV show that should be commended for its longevity, it’s Survivor.
This line is spoken by host Jeff Probst on the TV show Survivor (2000).
The Tribe Has Spoken. A phrase that Jeff Probst says after a contestant is voted off. A phrase fans love hearing but survivors dread as its the phrase that ends their chances of winning the game. What does this phrase mean? It means that your tribe have decided that you are the one that should go home.
During the first episode of the 41st season, Probst asked the Survivor contestants for their advice on whether he should keep the familiar greeting or not. In the show’s 20-year history, the popular host has uttered the words “Come on in, guys” to welcome players.
Jeff Probst is a snuff-o-holic. He’s been snuffing since the summer of 2000. He’s snuffed from Africa to Aitutaki. But that’s what happens when you get paid to snuff torches, and Probst has now snuffed over 300 of them (with yet another one coming tonight on Survivor: Nicaragua).
During Wednesday night’s premiere — titled “A New Era” — on CBS, host Jeff Probst and the new group of castaways agreed to tweak one of the host’s signature phrases — ” Come on in guys! ” — for inclusivity.
The host (and executive producer) of all 41 seasons of Survivor is known for making the show what it is. He couldn’t have done it without his sass, go-to button-down shirt, and of course, his wife. The 59-year-old is married to Lisa Ann Russell, but this isn’t his first marriage or relationship.
A snuffer is the item that the host, Jeff Probst, uses to extinguish or “snuff” the torch of the castaway that has been eliminated at Tribal Council while using the famous line: “The tribe has spoken.”, followed by “Time for you to go.”
