Jeff Probst marries Russell, Lisa Ann

Survivor host Jeff Probst has gotten married to someone named Russell, but it is not, thankfully, Russell Hantz, even though Probst’s love for the man is never-ending. The marriage was actually between Probst and Lisa Ann Russell, an actor who was previously married to Mark-Paul Gosselaar.

They were married Tuesday, People reports, calling it “an intimate ceremony at a private Los Angeles residence.” The magazine has a photo of the couple looking very happy. They’ve been dating since last summer.

Probst was previously in a relationship with Survivor Vanuatu contestant Julie Berry, but they broke up in 2008.
