Jeff Probst

Updated on November 12, 2013

Jeff Probst

Before Survivor even started I was a Jeff Probst fan. I used to watch him on the old FX network back when they had live shows and audience involvement. He was the host of a show called Backchat. Viewers were able to call in, write letters, or email. The whole 30 minute show was Jeff answering their questions about the network, it's shows, and hosts.

He seemed to disappear from TV for a bit and reappeared as the host of VH1's series Rock & Roll Jeopardy.

Of course he is most famous as the host of the ever popular Survivor series of reality TV. We've been watching since 2000 and amazingly they have produced two seasons a year since 2001.

He has the voice, he has the look, and he has the charm to keep people paying attention. And, seriously, who can resist those dimples. ;)

Jeff Probst Vids

Jeff Probst has teamed up with Purina Pro Plan to help pet owners do more for their pets. He's recording a series of videos, with his own dog Cooper and cat Zoey, that provide novel ways for owners to care for their pets.

Nine videos have been released and posted at

"I collaborated with Purina Pro Plan on this project because we share the same philosophy when it comes to caring for pets. Pro Plan is geared for pet owners who get so much from their pets they do all they can to give back to them. That's the kind of pet owner I am, and hopefully pet lovers see it come to life in this series of educational Web videos." - Jeff Probst

      I never did see "Backchat," but I've certainly watched "Survivor." He's a very good host.

      Hi Christine! Cool lens! I've snorkeled on the reefs and hiked in the boonies of Palau... the site of this season's "Survivor". I also love traveling and photography--and the travel photography that Jeff Probst brings us each week is great stuff! (And it brings back fond memories when I was camping in similar style boonies!
