Probst’s charity auctioning tickets to finale

Jeff Probst’s charity is auctioning off two tickets to the Survivor Gabon finale and reunion.

The winners of each of the two eBay auctions will receive tickets to the Dec. 14 finale in L.A., “a meet & greet” with Probst” that will last 15 minutes, an hour-long “lunch with the Survivor contestants,” a “photo opportunity & autographs” from contestants, and an “exclusive backstage tour,” according to the auction description.

All proceeds will benefit Jeff’s charity, The Serpentine Project, which “empowers youth transitioning out of foster care to reach for their dreams by opening the door to possibilities” via “personalized mentorship, life skills training, job shadowing and financial support.”

As of 7:30 a.m. ET Friday, the current bid for each is 99 cents; bidding ends Nov. 30 at 7 p.m. PT.
