According to the website Inside Survivor , CBS is planning on having all-winners season for Survivor season 40. Yes, that's right-winners like Natalie Anderson, Jeremy Collins, Boston Rob, and Sandra Diaz-Twine (the only two-time winner) could be back on Survivor.
However, there are a couple of reasons why this all-winners season may never come to fruition.
Host Jeff Probst just doesn't seem that into the idea. Last summer, he told Us Weekly that, "We cant do all winners. As a producer, I would never suggest it. I would say its not a good idea. We have 10 great winners that youd want to see play again. We dont have 20. We dont have 18. Some of the winners dont want to play again. Some of the greats are like, No, were done."
Some of the 37-soon to be 38-past winners may not want to come back, as the 39 days that castaways spend on the island is grueling on their bodies and minds, and they often come home with scrapes, bruises, and parasites (for real). Additionally, some of the past winners might not want to soil their former win. John Cochran played such a brilliant game on his season, but what if he comes back and is the first voted out?
However, the reality tv website Reality Blurred pointed out that Probst has also said that he hates twists that bring people that were previously eliminated back into the game, but this current season of Survivor is solely based on that twist .
So while the all-winners season is just a dream for now, it just might become a reality.
