Report: Jeff Probst will leave Survivor after Guatemala, may be replaced by former cast member
Jeff Probst’s last season on Survivor may be this one, Guatemala, according to Inside TV.
The magazine “reports that the 43-year-old Probst is going to quit once his contract is up at the end of the current installment. … He cited the constant traveling that comes with his emcee duties and his desire to settle down with his girlfriend, former contestant Julie Berry, whom he began dating last year after her edition wrapped as reasons for his possible departure,” E! Online reports.
The series will apparently continue without him, as “Inside TV says former players might be considered as host if Probst leaves,” according to the AP.
However, as TVTattle noticed, a New York Daily News story published last month said that Probst “has signed on for the 12th edition, yet to be filmed, but he’s unsure beyond that.” Guatemala is season 11.
