The Survivor host says although some people will think tomorrows season premiere (Sept. 15) of Survivor: Guatemala on CBS is insensitive and irrelevant because of the recent Gulf Coast disaster, he figures many more will feel good and comforted because the show, now in its fifth year, has become so familiar with them.
In his words, Nobody in their right mind thinks Survivor is about surviving. Its a show.
Survivor has a knack some people may call it bad timing for premiering a new season after a major U.S. disaster.
The second season rolled out after the 9/11 attacks and Probst admits there was the same concern of insensitivity though they were quickly squashed by high ratings.
