Survivor season 46 is currently airing on CBS, and it seems to be a bit of a Van Halen season.

Contestant Ben is a rocker, and in episodes 1 & 3 & 4 (so far) has mentioned either Van Halen, David Lee Roth, or both.

In addition, in episode 4, the host, Jeff, during a challenge says both “Might as well Jump”, and “Diver Down”.

Or maybe I’m just reading too much into it. :mrgreen:

While I was commenting on the “Diver Down” mention, my wife thought Jeff might have said “Somebody Get Me A Doctor” when one of the contestants did a belly flop. Not sure tho.

Is Probst trying to out-Van Halen Ben?
It’s no secret that Survivor challenge producer John Kirhoffer is a big time rock & roll fan. That’s why many Tree Mail messages and challenge names come from rock lyrics, or song and album titles. Of course, the Hostmaster General also loves himself some rock & roll, and even hosted Rock & Roll Jeopardy! back in the day. So perhaps I should not have been surprised that he decided to channel his inner Ben Katzman and start yelling out Van Halen references during this challenge like “Might as well jump,” “Diver down,” and “Somebody get me a doctor.” Always nice to see Probst having some fun and survibe-ing out there.
