Survivor's Jeff Varner Sounds Off on the Other Contestants: 'I Want to Vote Them All Out'

Originally posted 10/07/2015 03:20PM

On every season of Survivor, one contestant manages to steal the show.

This season, it's Jeff Varner, the 49-year-old from North Carolina who's snarky, funny and extremely quotable – although he sometimes says things that make everyone's jaw drop.

In the first two episodes of Survivor Cambodia: Second Chance, Varner has been playing hard, all the while telling other contestants that the game is moving too fast and he's just trying to keep up. (You're not fooling us, Jeff. Sorry. You know exactly what you're doing.)

In an exclusive deleted scene from this week's episode, Varner talks strategy – and then shares how he feels about the other contestants.

Few contestants have been beaten down by Survivor as much as Shirin Oskooi.

After spending 10 years applying for the show, she was finally cast in Survivor: Worlds Apart. On that season, she had vitriolic clashes with contestants Dan Foley and Will Sims that reduced her to tears.

The Contestants Hit a Wall in Survivor's Latest Immunity Challenge

Originally posted 09/30/2015 12:20PM

Before the season premiere of Survivor Cambodia: Second Chance, host Jeff Probst promised viewers that the season would be brutal.

"These contestants are getting a second chance to play a game that millions of people want to play," Probst told PEOPLE. "It is not going to be easy for them."

Case in point: the seasons' second immunity challenge. In an exclusive sneak peek at Wednesday night's episode, teams climb over increasingly steep A-frame walls – and it doesn't go smoothly.

Survivor's Vytas Baskauskas: Being Voted Off First was 'Really, Really Sad'

Originally posted 09/24/2015 04:45PM

Well, someone has to go first.

The reality of Survivor is that anyone can be the first to be voted off – although it's not usually a young, strong guy. In the first 30 seasons of Survivor, only four of the first boots were men under the age of 40. (And one of them was übervillain Jonny Fairplay, who was a special case.)

But in Survivor Cambodia: Second Chance, it was 35-year-old yoga instructor Vytas Baskauskas who was first to take the walk of shame.

There's no question that other members of his tribe would be weaker in challenges, but Baskauskas was perceived as a well-connected contestant who might emerge as a threat.

Baskauskas tells PEOPLE what went wrong – and whom he holds responsible for his ouster.

Survivor Cambodia: Second Chance Contestants Tell PEOPLE How They Prepared to Play Again

Well, this should be fun.

CBS has released the first details of Survivor Cambodia: Second Chance, and the season sure looks like a winner.

In May, America voted for the cast of the long-running franchise's 31st season. They chose 10 men and 10 women who had competed once before but hadn't won the game.

By and large, America got it right, although the omission of Survivor: Africa's Teresa Cooper was a heartbreaker.

Still, multiple sources have told PEOPLE that the season turned out to be one of the franchise's strongest in its 31-season history. Here's what to expect:
