Survivor 42 host Jeff Probst has shared some new content where he explains what goes into a challenge and what it is like for the castaways as they see each one for the first time.

This is all part of a plan by Probst to provide answers to questions that Survivor fans have been asking for a while, and it should give an interesting look behind the scenes.

Currently, Season 42 is still airing on Wednesday nights, but there are now just seven people left competing for that $1 million prize. The good news, though, is that production of Survivor 43 has already begun.

As a reminder, under the newish format, there will be a final four challenge this season, with two people then forced to participate in a Fire Challenge to see who gets to stand in front of the Survivor 42 jury.
