Jeff Probst, Castaways Preview Survivor: Heroes vs. Villains

at . Comments

While fans are excited for tonight's premiere of Survivor: Heroes vs. Villains, there's one man that may be more psyched than anyone: beloved host Jeff Probst.

"Heroes vs. Villains was a great idea from the get-go and I think we all knew it," Probst tells TV Guide. "It captures what Survivor really has become about, the good versus the bad."

Heroes and Villains

How do the veteran castaways that have returned for the show's 20th edition feel about this season? Pretty much the same way as their leader:

Tom Westman: "As a fan of the game, you want to go out and compete against these people and see if you've got what it takes."

Rob Mariano: "Surprisingly, Amber was a driving force behind me going. She said, 'Look around. Everything we have is because of this show. Get up there and bring home another million dollars.'"

Jerri Manthey: "I feel like I'm finally at that place where I can really embrace my inner villain."

Russell Hantz: "I'm real exited. Now I get to prove my point that I'm the best player that played the game."
