From TV guide: Ep 3 - Family Values
The CBS show begins its new season from Thailand on Thursday night.
The cast's volatility took producers aback, Probst said in an interview Monday. That will become particularly visible during the show's third episode.
"There's a part of you that's excited because it's new," he said. "Then there's a part of you that says, `I hope this is `Survivor' and not `American Gladiators.'"
Probst said some contestants of "Survivor: Thailand" were particularly combative with him. "I enjoyed that," he said, "because I enjoy people who are playing for real."
"Survivor" has remained a strong ratings performer for CBS, even competing with NBC's powerhouse comedy "Friends." Producers are already meeting to set ground rules for the sixth cast. Probst says he's not sure how long the show will last.
"The public will judge that," he said. "When it's over, we'll know. People will tell us, and we'll go away."
