Survivor: Game Changers is back for another round but some viewers might not see their favorites on the iconic reality show. Longtime host Jeff Probst has revealed why some contestants were invited back this season and others were not for season 34 of the show (the season premiere marked the 500th episode as well).

People caught up with Probst and he got pretty candid about the selection of the cast for the new episodes.

Why Andrea Is a Favorite

“This is what we look for…,” he told People magazine as he confirmed that Andrea Boehlke was invited back for her third season of the show. “In addition to being really compelling and a great storyteller, which are the first two things you have to be for us to even think about putting you on, is somebody who will play. And it’s so much easier to talk trash and not get voted out…then it is to say, ‘I’m taking that immunity necklace and I’m playing it right now. Win or lose, here we go. I’m all in.’ That’s what Andrea always did.”

While Boehlke was not always successful in her daring choices, Probst pointed out that her taking the risk to begin with is what attracted decision makers to continue asking her to return.

Has “Boston Rob” Mariano Seen His Last Days on Survivor?

Still, not everyone had the same fate as Boehlke. Probst also opened up to the publication about “Boston Rob” Mariano not returning despite his success in the past; including winning Survivor: Redemption Island back in 2011.

“He was not asked,” Probst revealed. “Mostly because I’m pretty sure I know the answer – he wouldn’t want to do it. I think there are certain people, like [Survivor: Caramoan winner John Cochran] doesn’t want to play again. And especially once you won, it’s very tough.”

Sandra Diaz-Twine Is Going for a Three-Peat

That certainly isn’t the case for Sandra Diaz-Twine who one the competition twice; once in 2003 in Survivor: Pearl Islands and another time in Survivor: Heroes vs. Villains six years later. She’s also back for this season.

“When we asked Sandra to play… she missed the call but wrote back and said, ‘Whatever it is, the answer is yes.’ And I saw that and said, ‘That is really amazing.’ She won twice, there’s nothing to be gained for her except to now finally lose – unless she can do it again. And she has enough to say, ‘Yeah, I can do it again. I’m coming back.’ I have major respect for that.” 

What do you think about the cast this season? Who would you want to return? Who’s your favorite competitor?
