Jeff Probst signs for two more "Survivor" cycles
LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - Emmy-winning reality host Jeff Probst will continue hosting CBS' "Survivor" for two more cycles.
Probst announced the agreement Tuesday morning on his Twitter feed, telling fans, "I'll be back snuffing torches for two more seasons." Probst will also continue to serve as an executive producer on the show through the 2010-11 season.
In a departure from his previous contract extensions, Probst renewed for only one year instead of two ("Survivor" airs two seasons each year).
The show's 20th edition, "Survivor: Heroes vs. Villains," premieres Thursday.
