Survivor Fights Age with Age for New Season

On TV, a decadelong-year run can be both a blessing and a curse. It's a time for celebration and nostalgia, but also possibly a time for trying to make the old formula look new again.

Wrapping its 10th year on the air and its 21st season, Survivor is fighting age with, well, age - pitting old players against young contestants in the series' latest arc.

"We're in our 21st season, and you have to evolve with the show and with the audience. Survivor started with small little twists and they became more popular, and now the twists are a big part of the show. We owe it to the audience to continue to twist it up," host and executive producer Jeff Probst tells

"I think we'll always be looking for ways that we can answer the question what's new this year."

True Survivor fans know even this latest maneuver has been done before - old vs. young was the big game-changer in Season 12 for Survivor: Panama. Probst insists the decision was dictated as much by the casting process as the producers.
