Jeff Probst Reveals Survivor’s Hourglass Twist Is Gone for 43

Jeff Probst Reveals Survivors Hourglass Twist Is Gone for 43

For those unfamiliar with these Survivor switch-ups, the controversial Change History (a.k.a. hourglass) twist first popped up during season 41’s pre-merge episode, when the castaways were separated from their tribes into two new groups to compete for individual immunity. The winning team was all given immunity from the vote, while only the losers would be on the chopping block. But here’s the rub: the winning team could pick one of two players who did not compete to be sent off to Exile Island, which secretly granted them the power to “change history” if they wanted to. The chosen contestant could smash an hourglass, reversing the outcome of the challenge—meaning the winners would actually be up for elimination, not the losers.

This caused more than a little behind-the-scenes drama. Season 41’s Sydney Segal, who was eliminated during that episode, told TVLine in November 2021 that the decision caused “sheer pandemonium” at camp and that fellow contestant Danny McCray even “reamed Jeff out” for the decision off-camera.

So, for season 42, the twist was presented a little differently: Probst told contestants that the person going to Exile would have a secret power that could change the game. But ultimately, the hourglass was still smashed, and a member of the winning team was sent home.
