Biography

Thanks to the popularity of the primetime reality series "Survivor" (CBS, 2000- ), host Jeff Probst became one of the most recognizable faces on television for over a decade and ushered in one of the more famous lines in reality show history: "The tribe has spoken. " But his profile extended beyond his hosting duties. The veteran TV personality also wrote and directed the critically acclaimed indie feature, "Finder's Fee" (2001), starring Ryan Reynolds and James Earl Jones, while working extensively with the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation to raise funds and awareness for the organization. Prior to his Emmy-winning stint as the host of "Survivor," which brought him to the four corners of the globe, he was the host of "Rock & Roll Jeopardy" (VH1, 1998-2001) and a correspondent on the syndicated "Access Hollywood" (1996- ). Turning to sketch comedy, Probst parodied his "Survivor" persona on "MADtv" (Fox, 1995-2009), while continuing to travel to such far-flung places as Guatemala, Fiji and Borneo for the series that many considered to be the height of achievement for reality television.

"I don't have aspirations to conquer the world," he says. "Maaaaaybe, a little side job would be OK. But I like hanging out with my friends. I like being at home (in Los Angeles). I don't want to work and work and work. I've got a great job!" - Probst to the Associated Press, May 9, 2008
