Jeff Probst Previews Tonight’s Survivor: Samoa Finale

Posted on

It’s been a season of medical evacuations, escaped chickens and multiple hidden immunity idols but mostly Survivor: Samoa has been the season of Russell Hantz. As host Jeff Probst told PEOPLE three months ago, “He came in from the first day going, “I am going to tear this game up.” He was consistent.”

Instead of assessing each of the final five’s chances pro and con to win $1 million, Probst decided to write for PEOPLE how each contestant will be remembered if they become the 19th season’s sole survivor. Here’s how the host sees it through his crystal ball:

Russell Hantz: Like him or not, he will go down as the greatest player of all time. Period.

Mick Trimming: He’ll take his money, marry his fianc e, and will most likely never be asked back on Survivor.

Natalie White: She will join Jenna Morasca, Danni Boatwright and Parvati Shallow as the 4th “hot woman” to win Survivor and will most definitely be asked back for a future all-star season.

Jaison Robinson: He will be regarded as one of the most well-spoken winners and will be remembered for his keeping his integrity intact while playing a very dirty game.

Brett Clouser: As nice as he is, will not remember Brett, Brett will not be asked back again, and Brett probably won’t care.

The Survivor: Samoa finale airs tonight on CBS starting at 8 pm EST. — Cynthia Wang

Tell us: Who do you think will win? Who from Samoa would you bring back in a future all-stars edition?
