Jeff Probst gives Survivor fans more than an eyeful during his upcoming appearance on Two and a Half Men. The episode is currently scheduled to premiere tonight (November 14).
Although the Survivor host keeps his clothes on while performing his duties on the hit reality show, he decided to shake things up a bit during his appearance on the CBS comedy. At one point during the episode, Probst appears in his birthday suit holding a plate of bacon.
According to NBC News, Jeff Probst will make his sitcom debut with Two and a Half Men. However, the host and children’s book author insists that he doesn’t spend a lot of time walking around his home without clothes. Probst also admitted that he isn’t a huge fan of bacon. Sorry if that spoils your day.
The Survivor alum explained that he shot his appearance on the TV show roughly 48 hours after he agreed to do the part. Jeff Probst said he was very surprised by how quickly things moved on the sitcom.
He told NBC News:
” I got a call from the casting director. I happen to be friends with [Jon] Cryer and I texted him and he said, ‘I just read the script. It’s really funny. You should do it.’ That was it. And then they said, ‘Oh by the way, you’ll be naked.’ I mean, how can you turn down ‘Two and a Half Men?’ — one of the greatest comedies of all time. I was really excited. I’ve done a lot of MAD TV and that kind of comedy but I’ve never done a situation comedy like this.”
During a recent interview with E! Online, Probst said he “had a blast” filming his scene for Two and a Half Men. He told the outlet that he received the call on Monday and shot the piece on Thursday. Thankfully, Probst was already in shape for the part.
“And I went over and shot it and that’s about all they want me to say, but I had a great time. I had no idea how sexual… You watch it at home, and you see what they get away with, and then when you’re there on the stage rehearsing it, it’s pretty bawdy stuff,” he said.
Since Jeff Probst is in remarkable shape, a lot of people will certainly want to know how the 52-year-old stays in such remarkable shape. In short: It takes quite a bit of work and dedication to keep such a remarkable physique.
“It’s definitely not a case of (I was born with) good genes and I eat McDonald’s every day. I definitely put effort into staying fit. You have to if you want to live a long time, why wouldn’t you? And if you’re in this industry, you better. And if you work on a show like ‘Survivor.’ There’s lots of reasons that I work to stay in shape,” he explained.
