At the beginning of the intro, Chris is seen sitting on a chair, holding his phone and a cup of coffee.
Chris uses his phone to contact the "judges", to ask if Izzy can nominate herself to perform the poison ivy mud wrap dare.
The producers call Chris to inform him that he isn't allowed to have the contestants participate in a "quickdraw gun fight" for legal reasons, and instead he should use water guns.
The producers call Chris during the first challenge and tell him the PM has allowed the contestants to jump out the plane without parachutes.
Chris continuously receives repeated calls from the producers regarding the show's budget. He keeps on taking the calls, and holds off from starting the first challenge to the contestants' confusion and impatience. He later receives calls again in the second challenge, just as Heather calls out Blaineley and Alejandro for cheating. Still busy with his call he dismissively agrees to Heather's requests. Later at the elimination ceremony, the producers continue to call Chris regarding the show's budget but he ignores them by throwing away his phone and decides to eliminate both Blaineley and Courtney to fulfill their demands.
When Chris is stressing to Dakota that she is not allowed to return, he is interrupted by his cell phone ringing. The caller is Dakota's father, who offers him a large sum of money to allow her to come back.
While Chris announces the challenge, he gets a phone call from his stylist, in which the host asks why his socks don't match his shirt.
After some of the contestants fly away contained in balloons, Chris receives several phone calls from the enraged producers, which he appears unfazed about. Annoyed, he throws the phone into the toxic waste, where it shorts out. After the winner has been declared, he gets another call green-lighting a new season.
After colliding with Chris, Topher manages to discreetly take his phone, which he uses to call the network.
While traveling through the tunnels, Topher continues to check Chris's phone for signal bars, expecting a call from the producers at any moment. Eventually, Topher finds a signal coming from a narrow cavern. He uses it to lead him and Jasmine out of the cave.
Throughout the challenge, Topher continues to only pay attention to Chris's phone as he tries to contact the producers. When going through the snow-filled third and final zone, he finally gets a call from the producers, who state that they are impressed by Topher's skills and want him to be the show's new host, and the excitement causes Topher to cost his team the challenge. During his elimination, Topher tells everyone about his call and that he is the new host. Unfortunately, Chris reveals later that the call was actually from himself in disguise, and that he knew all along that Topher stole his phone in an attempt to steal his job.
Chris uses his phone and calls the poison hotline for the Juggy Chugs after he notices that the contestants are having the side effects.
