We have tremendous respect for the brave souls who compete on Survivor but let's face it, the CBS hit reality series would be nothing without their host Jeff Probst. For 38 seasons, the guy has been sniffing the participants' torches and reviling them during the challenges – always in a variation of the same button-down shirt – and we could not help it.
But the polished host, who grills the people on the Tribal Council, has a different side. He is also a family man who has been married since 2011 to his wife Lisa Ann Russell, a former model and actress. Together, they started a mixed family with Russell's ex-husband and two children.
Here's what you should know about Jeff Probst's wife Lisa Ann Russell.
Jeff Probst and Lisa Ann Russell got married on December 5, 201
A spokesman for the couple said People that they tied the knot at a small ceremony in a private residence in Los Angeles. At that time, Probst was 50 and Russell 40.
It was a second marriage for both; Probst's first wife was a psychotherapist named Shelly Wright whom he married in 1996 and divorced in 2001, debuting one year after Survivor . Russell was previously married to Mark-Paul Gosselaar – yes, was made famous by the bell . They had two children together, Michael and Ava.
