Jeff Probst: I'd Vote My Wife Off Survivor

Originally posted 09/24/2014 01:30PM

Although Survivor is entering its 29th season, Jeff Probst clearly remembers every one of the 442 contestants, and can pull obscure trivia out of the air.

His excitement about the reality show is unwavering – impressive, considering that it debuted during the Clinton administration. "Every single season is a different show," he tells PEOPLE. "We're constantly reinventing ourselves."

But sometimes, ideas are recycled. 2013's Survivor: Blood vs. Water was such a compelling season that producers are doing it again, casting pairs of contestants with some sort of existing relationship – married couples, siblings, dating pairs, parent-child. The result, Survivor: San Juan Del Sur, premieres Wednesday at 8 p.m. ET on CBS.

What would Probst, 52, do if he were competing against his wife? The longtime host weighed in on that and more.

Jennifer Hudson Shares Clip of Son Dancing to Michael Jackson

Jennifer Hudson Shares Clip of Son Dancing to Michael Jackson (VIDEO)

Jennifer Hudson might be her son's favorite singer, but there's a dancer out there who's captured the little guy's heart.

It's Michael Jackson, so at least he has good taste.

Hudson was a guest on Late Night with Seth Meyers Tuesday, and noted that her son, David Daniel Otunga Jr., has only her feelings at heart: He didn't want to make her feel bad that Jackson was his favorite singer, so he amended his statement to put Mom at No. 1 in the singing slot, and MJ at No. 1 in dancing.

(Interestingly, Hudson was actually pregnant with David while she performed at an MJ memorial.)

The Voice: Blake Shelton Mocks Pharrell Williams's Mountie Hat as Blind Auditions Continue

The Voice coaches all had the same message for a contestant who delivered a masterful version of Sam Smith's haunting hit: Stay with me.

But Los Angeles resident Maiya Sykes, who closed out the second night of blind auditions Tuesday with the emotional song, could only choose one coach – although they all tried their best to woo the professional singer and Yale graduate, who has been struggling to find her footing in the music industry for well over a decade.

"What excites me the most is that when people have their own story, it's about amplifying who you are and you telling the world your story," newbie coach Pharrell Williams said in a heartfelt appeal. "Do I get a little bit of Aretha? Yes. Do I get a little bit of Gladys Knight? Yes. But I am so interested in who you personally are, and that's the story I want to amplify."
