"THE JEFF PROBST SHOW" PREMIERES SEPTEMBER 10TH WITH A WEEK OF ENGAGING AND ENTERTAINING STORIES ABOUT PEOPLE GOING TO EXTRAORDINARY LENGTHS TO LIVE THEIR LIVES TO THE FULLEST
Signature Segments Include "Guys on the Couch" and "Ambush Adventure"
LOS ANGELES - September 5, 2012 - THE JEFF PROBST SHOW premieres Monday, September 10, with a week of compelling stories featuring remarkable people living their lives in extraordinary ways.
Jeff Probst is bringing a new energy and honesty to daytime talk. This four-time Emmy winning host has built a passionate fan base on Survivor by not only asking tough questions, but also by being someone who viewers relate to and admire. Probst will bring this same candor to daytime and will often share from his own personal life.
In addition, the show features signature segments including "Guys On The Couch" where Jeff invites two guys onstage to answer relationship questions from women in the audience. Lively, funny and honest, the conversation offers entertaining insight into the differences between men and women.
Each episode will also feature an "Ambush Adventure" where Jeff challenges an audience member to take a step outside their comfort zone to confront an issue in their life - but there is a twist - you have to say "Yes" before you know the adventure. These spontaneous segments range from dramatic to romantic, from poignant to funny.
"Life is short, at best," says Probst. "This show is about challenging viewers to say yes to the adventures in life."
The syndicated, daily one-hour talk show is produced and distributed by CBS Television Distribution.
THE JEFF PROBST SHOW airs weekdays. Check local listings for stations and times or visit jeffprobst.com.

Guests Who Say "YES" To Life In Incredible Ways
The episode chronicles three stories of living life to the fullest, despite illness, age or any obstacle. Kelly, a vibrant 32-year-old was recently told she doesn't have much longer to live, but it hasn't stopped her from pursuing her dreams and living every day with a positive attitude, inspiring everyone around her. In a daytime exclusive, 8-year-old Vivienne Harr wanted to change the world, so she started a lemonade stand and founded "Not For Sale," an organization designed to make the world a better place. A charming couple in their 90s who met in a nursing home and were married two weeks later prove that age is not a barrier to finding true love.
Tuesday, September 11, From Medical Student To Britain's Next Big Star
Stories of three inspiring people who completely switched gears in life in order to pursue their dreams. Emeli Sande launched her career by performing at the opening and closing ceremonies of the London Olympics. But the British singing sensation was originally studying Neuroscience. She performs her new single, "My Kind of Love," and talks about leaving medical school to pursue her singing career.
Wednesday, September 12, The Couple Building The Biggest Home In America
Jackie and David Siegel, the stars of the documentary, "The Queen of Versailles," join Jeff to talk about building the largest home in America when the economy crashed in 2008. Their subsequent "15 minutes of fame" made them the poster couple for conspicuous consumption. Other examples of people seeking their 15 minutes include a young man who pretended to be famous - and the world believed him. Jeff talks with him about what it's like to be suddenly famous, even though the fame is manufactured.
Thursday, September 13, Sexy At Any Age
Jeff's guests are the "Three Golden Sisters," Josie Cavaluzzi, Teresa Dalquist and Mary Bartnicki. Three sisters, who are all in their 80s, give their take on sex. They are delightfully candid when sharing their insight on foreplay, the Kim Kardashian sex tape and what they learned from it, and everything else having to do with relationships. And, a 70-year-old man set out on an adventure to find love for himself and other seniors looking for romance.
Friday, September 14 , What's A Real Man? Morgan Spurlock Reveals How Men Really Think
Documentarian and upcoming CNN host Morgan Spurlock ("Supersize Me," "Mansome") joins Jeff to talk about what makes a man. They'll discuss who manscapes and who doesn't (and where). What does it mean to be a man in today's world? Former Los Angeles Dodger Billy Ashley is now a stay-at-home dad who transitioned from the macho world of professional sports to homemaker. How does he define what it takes to be a man? And 15- year-old Hart Mann shows how the measure of a man comes down to the mark he makes on the world.
