Jeff Probst was born on November 4, 1961.
November 4, 1961
Long before hosting CBS’ Survivor,” Jeffrey Lee Probst was born on this day in 1961 in Wichita, Kansas but he grew up in Bellevue, Washington. One of his first jobs was working as a producer and narrator of marketing videos. For a few years he served as host of the Ernst Home and Garden Show, a local Seattle program but he made it to the big time in 2000 hosting the first season of Survivor. A little known fact is that Probst became an ordained minister by the Universal Life Church Monastery a year before so that he could remarry his parents celebrating their 35th wedding anniversary. He also officiated the marriage Jen Fischer (The Office).
