They don't want you knowing this, but the creation of Survivor dates back hundreds of years to the founding of Florida.
You see, Juan Ponce de León had indeed found the fountain of youth those many years ago. Sadly, he could not understand how to manipulate it to grant him eternal youth. Instead, he gathered a team to investigate and develop a greater understanding of the fountain so that future generations of the de Leon family could reap the riches.
Well, many years passed and they finally figured out how to harness the powers of youth in the fountain.
It turns out, that a passionate connection must be made between man and the elements for it to work. The only notable problem is that the only one able to reap the benefits of the fountain of youth is he who connects man to the elements.
So, they (the investigators of the fountain of youth) knew they could not kid nap people as it would block the possibility of a connection to the elements between the person. Their solution? Survivor.
Jeff Probst, the great great great great great grandson of Juan Ponce de León was to be the host of the show in which he would place a number of people in the middle of nature for a reward they all desperately wanted. The only thing standing in their way? The fire. By day ten, each contestant would have a spiritual connection to his/her fire. And, because Jeff connected them to the elements, Probst maintains youth every time a contestant's flames are put out. Thus explaining his youthful appearance.
