“In terms of doing a celebrity season, the truth is, when I’ve approached people a few years ago, everybody goes, ‘Look, honestly, I could barely get eight days off, let alone 39,” Probst explained.

“So if you ever did it, it would have to be a really short maybe Christmas special where you go to Hawaii for eight days,’” he continued. “And then is it ‘Survivor’? No.”

Probst also dished on the celebrity fans of the show, which include “Tonight Show” host Jimmy Fallon and “How I Met Your Mother” star, Neil Patrick Harris.

“Well, ‘Marvelous Mrs. Maisel’, just learned,” he said of learning Rachel Brosnahan is a fan. “It’s really fun when people like Tyler [Perry], and Fallon does it a lot, send me notes with ideas because I’m still this kid from Wichita.”
