Description: What the host uses to extinguish torches.
Appearances: Every Season

A snuffer is the item that the host, Jeff Probst, uses to extinguish or "snuff" the torch of the castaway that has been eliminated at Tribal Council while using the famous line: "The tribe has spoken.", followed by "Time for you to go."


When a castaway gets voted off from a tribe, the host would ask that contestant to hand over their torch and insert it in a designated hole in front of the host, where the host will use the snuffer to cover the lit torch, extinguishing it in the process. In some cases, the snuffer is half-filled with water, for more effectiveness.



  • While most of the show's memorabilia is auctioned for charity, Jeff Probst keeps the snuffers as souvenirs.
