Chris pretending to be a producer in Three Zones and A Baby.

The producers are unseen characters who are only mentioned by other characters throughout the series. They are the creators of the show and set up its challenges with the assistance of Chris. Chris describes them as a "board of shadowy figures composed of producers, directors, and Harold-haters." Throughout the show, Chris continually mentions that the producers are more cruel than him and that they come up with the challenges the campers are put through.

In Full Metal Drama, the producers call Chris halfway through the first challenge while skydiving out of a plane to tell him the PM agreed to let them force the castmates to jump off the plane without parachutes, stating that parachutes weren't used in World War One, but this had little to do with the challenge. Complying, Chris knocks the crate of parachutes out of the plane. However, it is then revealed that the plane was fake and that there was no danger in jumping from it without parachutes.

In Ocean's Eight - Or Nine, the producers allow Courtney to rejoin the cast as a contestant after she files a successful lawsuit against the show for wrongful termination from the competition. Chris's financial interests were stricken by the lawsuit, as revealed at that episode's award ceremony.
