This Season’s Theme
The theme of Age of Extinction is a little different and comes in two different parts. It definitely sounds different than other seasons. Apparently, once voted out, players will be able to end their game play or get on a boat, but that’s all they know. Jeff Probst explained a bit about it.
“There’s two elements to it. There’s the spiritual and there’s the gameplay. The gameplay is — you don’t know this, it’s a secret — but when you’re voted out, you’re going to leave Tribal and walk around the corner and finally come to this lighted torch with a signpost. And the signpost will say, ‘You have a decision to make. If you’re done playing and you want your adventure to end, keep walking. If, however, you want a chance to get back in the game, take the torch and get in the boat.’ That’s all you know.”
The idea is players decide when their game will end or if they will fight for the shot to get back into the game. Jeff went on to say this idea came from trying to go deeper into Survivor. For some people, this will be more than just a way to win money. This twist is for the people who are ready to try to get back into the game because some people just want to give up.
CBS has a lot going on right now with this new cast list they have released. They also have Celebrity Big Brother in full swing right now.
