    No kidding! He has a lot of "bro"s out there, too. I'm beginning to think he wants to be a "cool kid".

    Insert these phrases into anyone, and you can create your own Survivor host:

    "Want to know what you are playing for?" and the "yeah, yeah" from the players

    "Immunity is back up for grabs", followed by a whine or corny comment from someone.

    "Immunity is at stake!", as if it never wasn't.

    "I'll go tally the votes", yes, yes.

    "It's time for you to go", right after the tribe has spoken.

    "You may head back to camp now.", but where else?
    Remember, I'm not laughing at you. I'm laughing with you.

    I think he should definitely change what he says to people, like the immunity is back up for grabs.

    Or, I'm sorry, the tribe has spoken. Well, obviously. Who else voted? He could say something else as well.

    OMG, someone commented on his line to Heidi on Thursday! That was hilarious. Intelligence? Haha! That was great!

    I beg to differ

    There are certain traditional phrases that give the show its very own character.

    I don't want to change a thing about Jeff, other than his rumpled shirt when we know that he and his staff have luxurious accommodations.

    Keep our beloved Host Phil Keohgan in mind. He has to repeat endlessly boring phrases explaining what "detour" "fast forward" and "pitstop" are, and he does it all with gracious equanimity while the only thing that changes is the scenery behind him. That does not stop us from liking him immensely. To see his smile upon greeting the couples with a crisp "Congratulations" and then look genuinely sorry when he has to notify a team that they came in last and are about to be eliminated is akin to performing a play on Broadway each night and keeping it fresh.

    Jeff does the same thing and yet gets to say a lot more which shows us his humor and insight. I'm sure that his questions at Tribal Council are culled from conversations overheard by camera and sound people but he makes it sound like he is downright psychic.

    I say, don't mess with tradition.

    Those phrases are part of Survivor, it wouldn't be the same without them.

    "The Tribe has spoken," in particular, was chosen with the idea in mind of it becoming a trademark catch phrase for the show.

    It means cranky... sort of. Cranky with attitude.

    I just like how Jeff is more direct with the Survivors and doesn't put up with as much BS as before.
    If you go through a lot of hammers each month, I don't think it necessarily means you're a hard worker.
    It may just mean that you have a lot to learn about proper hammer maintenance.

    No kidding! I love the way he told Rob to "take a step back" after his ultra-lame Bushmaster/Porn Star joke...you could tell from the tone in his voice and the look on his face that he was getting his fill of Rob's bonehead, sexually-centric remarks!

    I know this is off-topic, but I do remember reading somewhere how Jeff became absolutely livid with Greg Buis in S1 during a tribal council meeting. Can anyone fill me in on the details of this? Just curious...

    Yeah, it's in the book for that season. Greg was always mocking the entire TC and Jeff, which made Jeff mad because he wanted TC to have this mysterious and important aura. If memory serves, Greg also made some smartass comments when he got voted out (I mean, besides the phony outburst of tears) that were edited out because of their irreverent nature.

    The book from the first season is pretty good if you're a fan. It's not tremendous literature, though.
