Outwit, outplay, outlast: such is the mission when you watch Survivor 41 online, even without cable. It’s finally time for the CBS reality competition show is back after a pandemic-induced hiatus. And the 18 new cast members will find a shorter, more dangerous game, according to host Jeff Probst.
Survivor 41 premieres at 8 p.m. ET today (Sept. 22) on CBS.
For the first time in years, this edition of Survivor doesn't have a titled theme based on the location, tribe divisions or other facets of the game. It's just called Survivor 41, period.
Probst has said the season is shorter, just 26 days versus the usual 39. "It is a very fast pace," he noted in a teaser video. "It does force the players to make bigger decisions. So there will be new advantages and there will be some controversial twists."
Among the changes: No more rice rations doled out to the tribes. And with fewer reward challenges, that means players are functioning on much less food than in prior installments. In addition to other new twists, Survivor 41 should prove to be a brutal — and entertaining — season.
